Liquid-cooled power amplifiers for high field strengths

The R&S®BBL200 broadband amplifiers are ideal for applications requiring high RF power. The R&S®BBL200 broadband amplifiers are linear Class A amplifiers and generate 3 kW, 5 kW and 10 kW of power in a frequency range from 9 kHz to 250 MHz. They are liquid-cooled, solidstate, highly rugged, quiet and efficient. Precise monitoring of all runtime parameters ensures maximum robustness and reliability. The amplifiers are designed for continuous operation and deliver constant power even under mismatch conditions.

Features & benefits

Broadband amplification

Sophisticated RF design

The use of state-of-the-art design and simulation programs during development, the use of power semiconductors from internationally leading manufacturers and Rohde & Schwarz engineers" decades of experience in developing amplifiers produce the most advanced amplifier design currently available. Efficiency and ruggedness ensure smooth operation. Lean firmware with effective monitoring and protection mechanisms provides operational safety.

100% mismatch tolerance

Reliable with high availability

The R&S®BBL200 broadband amplifiers are highly tolerant to mismatch at the RF output and are excellently suited for EMC applications with poorly matched antennas or for DUT measurements with an input impedance that deviates significantly from 50 Ω. They are rugged enough to handle short-circuiting at the RF end or an open RF output. The R&S®BBL200 delivers the rated output power for as long as possible up to a mismatch of VSWR 6:1.

Liquid cooling

Compact and quiet

Liquid cooling of the amplifier modules makes the R&S®BBL200 amplifiers very quiet in comparison with completely air-cooled amplifiers. The combination of high-performance modules and efficient liquid cooling results in a compact design that is unparalleled in this power class. Despite the high power density, efficient module cooling ensures suitable temperatures in the amplifier rack. Waste heat is dissipated by a heat exchanger that can be located at some distance from the amplifier.

Modern user interface

Flexible control and operation

The R&S®BBL200 is operated via the display and the buttons on the front panel. This is ideal for use in labs and makes it easy to change settings. In addition the R&S®BBL200 can be conveniently operated via its graphical user interface using a computer. The web GUI integrated into the R&S®BBL200 is called up via LAN and web browser. The standard Ethernet interface makes it possible to automate test sequences using remote control SCPI commands.
