With the KU SG 2.45–450 A Kuhne electronic offers a high power microwave generator for the ISM band around 2.45 GHz. This device can be used as power source for microwave heating applications. As well it can also be used in medical applications, for propagation tests of electromagnetic waves, EMC tests, plasma generation and various other applications.

The KU SG 2.45–450 A can be controlled via a serial interface (3.3 V level). Warnings and alarms are signaled through a LED on the signal generator.
The RF output signal can be adjusted between 2400 … 2500 MHz in steps of up to 10 kHz; the output power is adjustable between 0 and 450 W in steps of 1 W. Protection against mismatch (adjustable) and overtemperature are integrated.
  • Adjustment of frequency in steps of 100 kHz or 10 kHz
  • Adjustment of the output power from 0 W ... 450 W in 1 W increments
  • Frequency-Sweep function
  • Pulse-function (pulse width and duty cycle adjustable)
  • Algorithm to find the frequency with minimum reflection
  • Isolator for protection against high VSWR
  • Monitor function of VSWR and (adjustable)
  • Monitoring of transistor temperature
  • Switch-off if transistor temperature is too high.
  • Monitoring of forward and reflected power
  • Over- and Undervoltage warning
  • ON/OFF – Control over interface or pin (ext. voltage)
  • Warming or heating through microwaves
  • Plasma generation
  • Scientific investigation of propagation of electromagnetic waves
Please notice the following:
  • The recommended combination of heat sink and fan(s) is only specified for an ambient temperature of 25 °C.
  • Further information about dimensioning of heat sinks is available on our FAQ site.
