The Model 3000S1G2z5 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 3000S1G2z5, when used with a sweep generator, will provide a minimum of 3000 watts of RF power. Included is a front panel gain control which permits the operator to conveniently set the desired output level. The 3000S1G2z5 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.

The Model 3000S1G2z5 is equipped with a digital control panel (DCP) which provides both local and remote control of the amplifier. The DCP uses a color LCD touch screen and a single rotary knob to offer status reporting and control capability. The display provides operational presentation of forward and reflected power plus operational status. Special features include a gain control, internal automatic leveling control (ALC) with front panel control of the ALC threshold, forward and reflected RF sample ports for precise power measurements and RF output level protection.

All amplifier control functions and status indications are available remotely in GPIB/IEEE-488 format, RS-232 hardwire and fiber optic, USB, and Ethernet. The bus interface connector is located on the back panel and positive control of local or remote operation is assured by a Local/Remote keylock on the front panel of the amplifier.

The low level of spurious signals and linearity of the Model 3000S1G2z5 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.
