The 525LA Amplifier is a broad band rugged source of RF power, useful for RFI/EMI, power meter calibration, laser modulation and general laboratory applications. The 525LA amplifier represents E&I’s commitment to providing RF power amplifiers of the highest quality, durability and ruggedness.
The 525LA RF Power Amplifier produces 25 Watts of class A linear power output over the entire frequency range from 1MHz to 500 MHz. with a power gain of 50 dB. It has very low harmonic distortion along with low IMD products. Operation over the band is achieved without the need for any band switching or indeed any adjustments, with a typical gain flatness of +/- 1.5 dB and a 3rd order intercept point of +56dBm
The 525LA RF Power Amplifier is compatible with most signal generators, frequency synthesizers, sweep generators and other laboratory signal sources. It accurately reproduces all waveforms within its power and frequency ranges: AM, FM, SSB, pulsed and other complex modulation schemes.
The 525LA RF Power Amplifier is built to withstand a +13 dBm input (1.0 Volt RMS) for any VSWR load condition. The internal switched mode power supply is very conservatively rated, in order to facilitate operation over a large range of line conditions and temperatures. The forced air cooling provides for low internal temperatures, providing long term reliability.
