3901 - Krohn-Hite Tunable Filters

Get Quote

  • Model: 3901
  • Manufactured by: Krohn-Hite
  • High end frequency limit: 99.00kHz
  • Channels: 2
  • Operation Modes: LP
  • Extra Specifications: Low-Pass/High-Pass Tunable Active Filter

The Krohn-Hite Model 3901 programmable, two channel Elliptical filter/voltage gain amplifier is one of a family of new programmable filters from Krohn-Hite. It was carefully designed with the user in mind, providing ease of operation, reliability and price competitiveness. All backed with the quality which Krohn-Hite has provided in  filters since 1949.

As an elliptical  filter, the Model 3901 has two filter channels that have a tunable cutoff frequency range from 1Hz to 99kHz and a rolloff rate of 115dB/octave. Each channel can be used independently; one as a high-pass filter and the other as a low-pass filter; or the channels can be externally connected for band-pass (series) or band-reject (paralleled) operation. Each filter section has a minimum stopband attenuation of >80dB and a passband ripple of typically 0.22dB.

The 3901 provides either a single-ended or differential input with a common mode rejection of >60dB. Input gains to 40dB in 10dB steps and output gains to 20dB are also provided. The 3901 will accept input signals of ±10V peak at 0dB gain and has selectable ac or dc coupling. The filter is GPIB Bus programmable and is complimented with non-volatile memory for the storage of up to 99 front panel set-ups. Overload detectors are standard and assist the user in detecting excessive input signals or incorrect gain settings.

The 3901 is also a programmable voltage gain amplifier for applications that require a low noise amplifier. The amplifier has a bandwidth of 1MHz and gains to 60dB, selectable in 10dB steps, and a wideband noise of <100µV.
