7228: Up to 60 Ap/160 Vp, DC to 1 MHz, Single-Phase

7228

Single-phase, 2U, industrial amplifier

  • Up to 4X the long-term power of the 7224 at frequencies above 100 kHz
  • Changes to protection, connection type and modes of operation are accomplished quickly by changing back-panel DIP switches or via remote contact closure
  • Provides user-selectable current limit, DC Blocking and DC Servo for transformer-based loads
  • Series or Parallel systems can be configured using back-panel DIP switches or remote contact closure. Ballast resistors are not required for connecting multiple amps in parallel

Key Performance Capabilities:

  • Up to 1000 watts RMS power output
  • Small signal response up to 1 MHz
  • Up to 16A at 13.5 VDC
  • Can be used to create series or parallel systems for up to 3 times the voltage or 4 times the current output

The 7228 is a 1-kVA, DC-enabled unit that provides advanced protection and exceptional versatility. It features a DC to 1 MHz bandwidth and improved performance at frequencies above 100 kHz. In continuous operation, a 7228 can provide up to four times the output power of the 7224 at frequencies above 100 kHz. If more current or power is needed, amplifiers can be combined in series or parallel and operate as a single system.

Back-panel switches allow the 7228 be configured by the user for high-voltage/low-current, medium voltage and current, or low-voltage/high-current applications. Residual noise, slew rate, and gain linearity have all been improved over the 7224 model. It can safely drive a wide range of resistive, inductive loads.

The 7228 is typically used to create waveforms as required by a variety of EMC standards for DC powered electronics like FMC 1278, DO-160, and MIL STD 461. It can also be used as a gradient amplifier for very small bore, high-gain MRI and NMR systems.

AC Output

Note: Testing performed with fans set to Auto, 20°C ambient temperature, 1 kHz sinewave input signal into resistive loads as specified. Performance reported is typical into the specified load up to 20 kHz frequency levels. Performance may be affected when operating into highly reactive loads or above 20 kHz, reducing maximum voltage, current and power output. *Testing performed with Bi-level setting set to Manual, Low. **Continuous operation for 45 minutes..
