Product description

The Hp040-060-150adG-a10-2x driver provides up to 150 Watt combined output power and is designed to drive dual-frequency germanium acousto-optic modulators.

The driver can be operated with modulation frequencies (analog and digital) up to 1mHz for RF amplitude control and up to 5 MHz for drive frequency control.

Water cooling parts made from copper ensure the highest standards for corrosion protection.

Optimum EMC shielding and mechanical protection is achieved by an aluminium casing and conductive surface passivation.

Key features

  • Combined RF output power up to 150 Watt
  • Constant output power design
  • High SWR and overheat safety shutdown
  • Copper cooling parts
  • Compact casing
  • Fully shielded (EMC)
