The Model ME series Modulator Drivers include a crystal
controlled RF oscillator, fast modulation circuit, and a
broadband RF power amplifier in a housing with power supply,
RFI line filter, and line switch. The standard crystal controlled
oscillator has a calibration tolerance of 25 ppm. Crystals at
other than the specified frequencies can be factory installed.
The standard modulation input configuration is analog with a
digital input option available. A CW RF output level is adjusted
by the front panel level control which inserts a dc offset to the
input of the modulation circuit with no modulation input voltage.
The class AB broadband amplifier has sufficient bandwidth for
pulsed operation. RF output power capability can be up to 10
watts for some models. Configuration options include a front
panel user accessible connection between the oscillator and modulation circuit (N option) so that an external
source frequency can be used in place of the internal crystal oscillator. Also available is an optional front panel
connection between the modulation circuit and the RF power amplifier (H option) to give the Model ME drivers
capability to be used as a stand alone RF power amplifier. Drivers with option E provide a CW +10 dBm crystal
oscillator reference output.
