Laboratory power amplifiers LPA01 LPA400 Features: DC accurate and wide bandwidth Switch selectable coupling options: AC, AC+DC or AC with reduced DC. Switch selectable precision gain settings. Switch selectable bandwidth. High slew rate. 1A Peak output current @ up to 14V peak (LPA01). 400V peak, 50mA rms (LPA400). 180V peak, 100mA rms (LPA400B). Unconditionally stable into any load. Isolated from ground to prevent earth loops. Robust metal enclosure Will fit underneath QuanteQ or Veqtor to boost output capability. LPA01 & LPA400 are the first in a range of amplifiers developed to provide high accuracy amplification in an industrial or laboratory environment. LPA01: High frequency, high current testing of wound components. High frequency excitation of servos and actuators up to 1A. LPA400: High voltage, high frequency calibration. Driving high voltage actuators (e.g. piezo) up to 400V. tel: fax: e-mail: web-site: Newtons4th Ltd. 30 Loughborough Rd Mountsorrel +44 116 2301066 +44 116 2301061 firstname.lastname@example.org www.newtons4th.com Loughborough, Leics. LE12 7AT. England The LPA range of power amplifiers from N4L are robust and reliable for use in a variety of industrial and laboratory applications. Designed originally for use with the PSM* range Phase Sensitive Multimeters, they can also be used anywhere where there is a need to boost a signal either in voltage or current. They combine dc accuracy with wide bandwidth to faithfully reproduce complex waveforms, driving loads that may be capacitive, inductive or resistive. Optionally, the dc component can be eliminated with ac coupling, or can be reduced with ac+(dc) coupling. To limit high frequency noise, the input bandwidth can be reduced with a linear phase, 2 nd order, low pass filter for low frequency applications. The amplifier gain is selectable from three precision gain settings.

ABOVE +/- 12V THE LOW FREQUENCY GAIN ACCURACY IS AS FOLLOWS: x1 GAIN: 1% x4 GAIN: 3% x10 GAIN: 5% Notes: All specifications at 230V, 50Hz, 23C unless otherwise stated. All specifications are typical values unless otherwise stated These specifications are quoted in good faith, but Newtons4th Ltd reserves the right to amend any specification at any time without notice. Total Harmonic Distortion: For frequencies up to 1MHz, Total Harmonic Distortion is typically less than 0.6%. This graph demonstrates the effect of Total Harmonic Distortion on the Maximum Output Voltage of the LPA01 amplifier at higher frequency levels up to 5MHz. The PSM range includes the PSM1700, PSM1735, PSM2200 and PSM2201 that incorporate gain/phase analysis, LCR meter, phase angle voltmeter, wideband true rms meter, Power analyser, harmonic analyser and more. The LPA range is designed & manufactured in the UK by Newtons4th Ltd .
