Product Overview

RENT AMPLIFIER RESEARCH 15S4G8A (Call for Availability)

The Amplifier Research 15S4G8A is a self-contained, air-cooled, broadband amplifier designed for applications that require instantaneous bandwidth and high gain. It is housed in a stylish cabinet and designed for benchtop use, but can be removed for equipment rack mounting.

Features and Specifications of the Amplifier Research 15S4G8A Amplifier include:

  • Features:
    • Provides a minimum of 15 watts of RF power when used with a sweep generator
    • Front panel gain control provides convenience of setting desired output level
    • RF input leveling circuit:
      • Protects the amplifier from RF input overdrive
      • Controls RF input level to the RF amplifier first stage when RF input level is increased above 0 dBm
    • RF amplifier stages are protected from over-temperature, due to cooling blockage or fan failure, by removing the DC voltage to them 
    • Digital Display on front panel indicates operate status and fault conditions when over-temperature or power supply fault occurs
    • Digital control for both local and remote control of the amplifier
    • Control System is a 16-bit RISC microcontroller board:
      • Handles primary functions of the amplifier
      • Interprets commands sent to it from an 8-bit remote interface board:
        • 8-bit microprocessor controlled board provides IEEE-488 (GPIB) and RS-232 control of all amplifier functions
    • Expandable power technology provides upgradability
