Generate Amplifier for the IFR 1200-series
This amplifier is designed to be used with the IFR 500, 1200, 1200A, 1200S and 1200 Super-S service monitors.
It is used whenever more than -20 dBm is needed from the RF Generator function of the service monitor,
such as when generating over-the-air signals into distant receivers or tuning filters, especially deep
notch filters that require more than the standard generator provides. It plugs into the monitor's
generate output port and power jack and amplifies the generated signal by about 32 dB, giving an
output of approximately +12 dBm.
This amplifier is similar to IFR's “Option 5” 30 dB Generate Amplifier, but does not have the internal relay and receiver port connection of the IFR factory amplifier. Instead of discrete components, it uses two microwave “gain block” 16 dB amplifier ICs. An internal 250 mA fuse protects the service monitor from damage in the event of an internal failure.
Price if ordered direct from me is $89 which includes USPS Priority Mail shipping in the U.S.
