Model 20 - 20 Watt CW Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier
Available from Applied Systems Engineering, Inc.
The Model 20 series CW TWT Amplifier has been designed to operate 25 watt traveling wave tubes over the 4-18GHz range. Internal power supplies are solid state DC-DC converter designs with fast loop response times so that output level variations are minimal. Both cathode and collector power supplies and the heater supply are duty cycle regulated designs. The cathode and collector power supplies have very low ripple, with attendant low phase noise in the TWT Amplifier. Output spurious signals are less than -50dBc. The front panel 4-line vacuum florescent display with 2 page modes, provides a monitor for the operating characteristics. Duty Cycle is CW. Operating Temperature 0 to 40 degree C. Weight 20 pounds, nominal. Dimensions are 3.5 x 19 x 20 inches.
