Specifications

HP Model 5582A Linear Amplifier

INPUT:

POLARITY: Positive or Negative.

IMPEDANCE: 1.5 kS2, dc coupled.

MAXIMUM VOLTAGE: 15 V peak, 15 V dc, without damage to input.

GAIN:

RANGE: 2 to 1280 by coarse and fine control.

CONTROLS:

COARSE: Switch from 1 to 256 in binary steps.

FINE: Continuously variable from 2.00 to 5.00 (times coarse gain setting) by 3-turn pot with calibrated in-line digital display. RESETTABILITY: Fine gain, one minor division (0.2% of full range at constant temperature).

PULSE SHAPING:

RC MODE: Separate controls for integration, first and second differentiation.

TIME CONSTANTS: 0.02-5 /is in 1, 2, 5 sequence for integration, first and second differentiation.

DELAY LINE MODE: Single or double; 1.0 /is delay lines are standard. Plug-in delay lines from 100 ns to 1 /is in 100 ns steps available on special order.

AMPLIFIER RISE TIME: <40 ns, typically 25 ns.

AMPLIFIER BAND PASS: Typically 2 kHz to 6 MHz.

TEMPERATURE STABILITY: Gain shift <0.05%/°C, typically 0.02%/°C.

OUTPUT:

AMPLITUDE: ±10 V, except ±5 V with 0.02 /is and 0.05 /is first and/or second differentiation time constants.

IMPEDANCE: <5 S2.

MINIMUM LOAD IMPEDANCE: 90 Si. POLARITY: Positive and Negative. DELAY: Typically 65 ns (relative to input).

INTEGRAL LINEARITY: <0.3% with 1 /is DDL and 0.1 /is integration time constant.

DIFFERENTIAL LINEARITY: <1%, 0.3% below 8 volts (typical).

NOISE: <15 /iV rms, referred to input at maximum gain with 1 /is Integration time constant and 1 /is single differentiation time constant. Typically 9 /iV with input terminated in 50 ii.

CROSSOVER WALK: <±0.5 ns shift at constant gain from 10% of rated output to rated output with 1 /is DDL shaping and 0.1 /is integration time constant. For a 16:1 change in gain setting, walk is <±5 ns (with constant fine gain setting).

COUNT RATE SHIFT: <0.05% with inputs to 105 counts/s, for Cs 137 (typical).

OVERLOAD: Amplifier recovers from a 200 X overload to 2% of the baseline in less than 3 non-overload pulse widths with 100 /is preamp fall time constant (for 1 /is DDL and 100 ns integration shaping). In 1 /is double RC differentiation and 1 /is integration shaping, the recovery from a corresponding overload to 2% of baseline is 2 non-overload pulse widths from end of non-overload pulse.

GAIN CONTROL INPUT: For external fine gain control, contact factory for applications information.

OPERATING TEMPERATURE: 0 to 55°C

POWER REQUIRED: +24 V, 250 mA; -24 V, 325 mA. Power may be supplied by HP 5580A NIM POWER SUPPLY.

PREAMP POWER OUT: +24 V.

NIM Bin

Nuclear instrumentation nowadays is commonly housed in packages which conform to concepts originated by the AEC Committee on Nuclear Instrument Modules. Standard modules fit up to 12 abreast in a 'bin,' which in turn fits the standard 19" EIA rack. The packages (NIMs, for Nuclear Instrument Modules) can be y12th bin wide, or any integral number of twelfths. The bin may or may not contain a power supply for the NIMs, but always has standard connectors for power. Power voltages are standardized. This is the HP 5580A NIM bin, containing power supply. 120 watts are divided among supply voltages of ±24, ±12, and ±6 vdc. Protective circuits guard against excessive current or voltage. The bin is blower cooled. (Also available is a bin 12 modules wide, the HP Model 5580B.)
