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, 2nd order, low pass
filter for low frequency applications.
The amplifier gain is selectable from three precision gain settings.

*THE LPA01 CAN OPERATE AT PEAK INPUT AND OUTPUT VOLTAGES OF UP TO +/- 14V.
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, 23°C 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.
