Instruments for Industry, a unit of AMETEK Compliance Test Solutions (Edison, NJ) introduced the S21-4KWP-2KWP FLEX solid-state micro wave pulse power amplifier with a frequency range of 1.0 GHz to 2.0 GHz. It supplies 4 kW of pulse power up to 10% duty cycle with a maximum pulse width of 100 uS. The amplifier can be configured into two separate 2-kW pulse amplifiers for lower-power requirements at multiple locations. Safety features include RF and hardware protection circuits such as voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR), over current, voltage protection, and redundant thermal and airflow sensors for the module and full system. The user interface features a backlit screen that shows forward/reverse power indication, system status, and self-diagnostic information.
