Function Generator


Function Generator, A2-2502.50, £425.00

Function GeneratorThe frequency is set by a speed
sensitive button. We have chosen the
characteristics of the button after many
practical experiments with common
physics equipment.
Turn slowly to set the display’s last digit. Turn quicker, and the response accelerates softly.
The generator runs through the ten
decades from 0.001 Hz to 10.00 MHz in
a single range. The frequency stability is better than 0.005%

Step mode
In many applications you need to study a physical system at a fundamental frequency and at different multiples of this frequency. The special step feature makes this task a breeze.

Sweep mode
The generator can sweep through a frequency range in order to discover eventual resonances. You decide the
frequency range and the speed. You have the choice between a linear sweep (fixed number of Hz per time) and a logarithmic sweep (fixed number of octaves per time).

Drives speaker, vibrator etc. directly
The built-in 10 W power amplifier drives effortless power-consuming appliances as e.g. a vibrator. The amplifier can deliver more than 1 A for all frequencies between 0.001 Hz and 100 kHz and is directly coupled to the generator part - no switches or external cables complicates its use.

Advanced Features
The generator can be connected to your PC as a USB memory stick (through a standard USB cable). Are the seven built-in waveforms not enough? – Define your own waveform – e.g. by means of a spreadsheet. Do you need a specific sequence of settings again and again? – Program your generator to do it! Do you want to specify the frequency more accurately than the display can show? – Program the frequency with a resolution of 0.001 Hz.
