Product Overview

RENT AMPLIFIER RESEARCH 250S1G2Z5 (Call for Availability)

The Amplifier Research 250S1G2z5 is a self-contained, air-cooled, broadband amplifier designed for applications that require instantaneous bandwidth, high gain, and linearity. 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 250S1G2z5Amplifier include:

  • Features:
    • Provides a minimum of 250 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
    • Control functions and status indications are available remotely in GPIB/IEEE-488 format, RS-232 hardwire and fiber optic, USB and Ethernet
    • Bus interface connector on back panel
    • Local/Remote switch on front panel assures positive control of local or remote operation
    • Low level of spurious signals and linearity make it ideal for these uses:
      • As a driver amplifier in testing wireless and communication components and subsystems
      • As a test instrument covering mutiple frequency bands
      • For communication technologies including CDMA, W-CDMA, TDMA, GSM, etc.
      • EMC Test applications where undistorted modulation envelopes are preferred
