The Model 60S1G3 is a solid state, self-contained,
air-cooled, broadband amplifier designed for
applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain and
linearity are required. Housed in a stylish
contemporary cabinet, the unit is designed for benchtop use,
but can be removed from the cabinet for
immediate equipment rack mounting.
The 60S1G3, when used with a sweep generator, will provide a
minimum o f 60 watts o f RF power.
Included is a front panel gain control which permits the
operator to conveniently set the desired output
level The 60S1G3 is protected from RF input overdrive by an
RF input leveling circuit which controls
the RF input level to the RF amplifier first stage when the
RF input level is increased above 0 dBm.
The RF amplifier stages are protected from over-temperature
by removing the DC voltage to them if an
over-temperature condition occurs due to cooling blockage or
fan failure. There is a digital display on
the front panel to indicate the operate status and fault
conditions if an over-temperature or power
supply fault has occurred. The unit can be returned to
operate when the condition has been cleared.
The 60S1G3 digital panel provides control of all amplifier
functions both locally and remotely via
IEEE-488 (GPIB) or RS-232 interfaces.
The low level of spurious signals and linearity of the Model
60S1G3 make it ideal for use as a driver
amplifier in testing wireless and communication components
and subsystems. It can be used as a test
instrument covering multiple frequency bands and is suitable
for a variety of communication
technologies such as CDMA, W-CDMA, TDMA, GSM etc. It is also
suitable for EMC Test
applications where undistorted modulation envelopes are desired.
