EMC Power Amplifiers
Class A Solid State Power Amplifiers, 9 kHz to 6 GHz, Up to 12 kW Output Power
HV TECHNOLOGIES, Inc. is partnered with amplifier manufacturer Prana to provide true Class A, solid state power amplifiers to the North American market. Prana was founded in 1975 and is a highly reliable and respected manufacturer from Europe who has been meeting the needs for RF test equipment for many applications including EMC testing. Over time they have gained the knowledge to maintain customer relationships and exceed expectations. Offering a complete 3 year warranty on all products is just the beginning and we will be happy to prove to you why our products and systems will not only meet your needs but exceed them.

- Will withstand any mismatch and load without damage
- Quiet operation through the use of variable speed cooling fans (water cooling options available)
- Modular design for easy upgradeability & serviceability
- Quick & easy diagnostics of critical operating parameters
- Ethernet, USB, GPIB & RS232 interface
- Can continue to operate at reduced power with loss of power transistors
- 3 year standard warranty (5 year extended warranty option)
Prana amplifiers are extremely reliable and robust. All RF power modules and complete amplifiers are factory tested into a short circuit and open circuit at maximum power with all protection circuits defeated to ensure a robust and reliable operation. The amplifiers are fault tolerant because they are uniquely capable to continue working with the loss of one or more power transistors. If a power supply goes down, the other power supplies will carry the load. This keeps your lab up and running and greatly reduces down time.
Prana manufactures power amplifiers from 9 kHz up to 6 GHz with output power up to 12kW. If you need more power in a certain range we can tune the amplifier to provide more power where you need it.

Bulk Current Injection (BCI)
Bulk Current Injection probes are used to inject RF current into conductors and cables of electrical and electronic equipment undergoing susceptibility testing. Prana's BCI probe IP-DR250 is designed to cover most industrial, military and automotive testing standards up to 300mA and aircraft testing up to 600mA. The injection probe with its "clamp-on" feature is simply clamped around the test conductor and becomes a one-turn secondary winding. The injection probe aperture accommodates conductors up to 43.8 mm (1.7 in) in diameter. The IP-DR250 is specially designed to provide minimum insertion loss over the 0.01MHz to 400MHz frequency range. It has a high capacity of
heat exchange with the ambient air allowing permanent input power up to 500W.

Expertise to Solve Your Needs
HV TECHNOLOGIES not only offers top quality amplifier technologies, it also has the ability to help you size and choose the correct amplifier. We have years of experience and know-how to pull from. It can be very difficult to predict what will happen in every individual setup. There are so many contributing factors that can affect the field such as: mismatch (VSWR), cable and system loss, antenna performance, quality of test setup, test standards, field uniformity, test distance and near field effects. Some of these factors are easy to calculate and predict while others take a little expertise to minimize and understand the effects on required power. With HV TECHNOLOGIES you can be confident with our solutions.
