AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation 150A400

150 Watt CW, 100 kHz - 400 MHz Amplifier, Type N (f)

The Model 150A400 amplifier is a self-contained, broadband unit designed for laboratory applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain and moderate power output are required. Utilization of push-pull MOSFET circuitry lowers distortion, improves stability and allows operation into any load impedance without damage. The Model 150A400 amplifier, when used with an RF sweep generator, will provide a minimum of 150 watts of swept power.

What is the AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation 150A400?

The 150A400 is a broadband, solid-state amplifier designed for laboratory applications requiring instantaneous bandwidth, high gain, and moderate power output. It's particularly suitable for RF susceptibility testing, antenna and component testing, watt meter calibration, and as a driver for higher power amplifiers.

What is the frequency range of the 150A400?

The amplifier operates across a wide frequency range from 100 kHz to 400 MHz instantaneously.

What is the rated power output of the 150A400?

The rated power output of the amplifier is 150 watts minimum, with power output reaching 155 watts nominally at 3dB compression and 125 watts nominally at 1dB compression.

What are the modulation capabilities of the 150A400?

The 150A400 can faithfully reproduce AM, FM, or pulse modulation appearing on the input signal, making it versatile for a wide range of testing scenarios.

How does the 150A400 handle mismatched loads?

The amplifier can tolerate 100% of rated power without foldback and will operate without damage or oscillation with any magnitude and phase of source and load impedance, thanks to its push-pull MOSFET circuitry.

What is the gain and gain adjustment range of the 150A400?

The amplifier provides a minimum gain of 52 dB with a gain adjustment range of 20 dB minimum, offering flexibility in signal amplification.

What are the cooling requirements for the 150A400?

The 150A400 employs forced air cooling with self-contained fans to maintain optimal operating temperatures during extended use.

What are the primary power requirements for the 150A400?

It requires 90-135/180-270 VAC auto-ranging, 47-63Hz, single-phase power, consuming up to 1000 watts maximum.

What are the model configurations available for the 150A400?

The amplifier is available in several configurations including 150A400M1 through M5, which vary based on RF input/output connector positions and rack-mounting options.

What are the remote interfaces and control options available for the 150A400?

The amplifier includes digital control for both local and remote operation, with IEEE-488 (GPIB) and asynchronous full-duplex RS-232 control of all amplifier functions. All control functions and status indications are available remotely in GPIB/IEEE-488 format.
