Product Overview

Rent Amplifier Research 2000TP8G18 TWT Amplifier (Call for Availablity):


The Amplifier Research 2000TP8G18 is a self contained, forced air cooled, broadband traveling wave tube (TWT) microwave amplifier designed for pulse applications at low to moderate duty factors where instantaneous bandwidth, reduced harmonics and high gain are required. A reliable TWT subsystem provides a conservative 2000 watts minimum peak RF pulse power at the amplifier output connector. Stated power specifications are at the fundamental frequency.

The amplifier's front panel digital display shows forward and reflected average power output or forward and reflected peak power, plus extensive system status information accessed through a series of menus via soft keys. Status indicators include power on, warm-up, standby, operate, faults, excess average or peak reflected power warning and remote. Standard features include a built-in IEEE-488 (GPIB) interface, 0 dBm input, TTL Gating, VSWR protection, gain control, RF output sample port, auto sleep, plus monitoring of TWT helix current, cathode voltage, collector voltage, heater current, heater voltage, baseplate temperature and cabinet temperature. Modular design of the power supply and RF components allow for easy access and repair. Use of a switching mode power supply results in significant weight reduction.

Housed in a stylish contemporary cabinet, the Amplifier Research 2000TP8G18 provides readily available pulsed RF power for a variety of applications in Test and Measurement, (including EMC RF pulse susceptibility testing), Industrial and University Research and Development, and Service applications. AR also offers a broad range of amplifiers for CW (Continuous Wave) applications.
