Hewlett Packard Model #5260A Frequency Divider which divides input signals in the microwave (300MHz  12.4GHz) frequency range by 100 or 1000 to provide an output signal in the 1MHz to 12.4MHz range.
In its simplest concept, the Model 5260A is a box with an input terminal and an output terminal; the frequency of the output signal is selectable as either 1/100 or 1/1000 of the input signal frequency.
This item can be used with any frequency counter that covers 1  12.4MHz.
A nice automatic, directreading frequency measuring system for frequencies from dc to 12.4GHz can be made by combining a HewlettPackard Model # 5245L frequency counter with a Model 5252A Prescaler plugin plugin AND the model # 5260A Automatic Frequency Divider.
The input connector is type "N" Female and the output connector is type BNC female.
Approximately weight and size of this unit prepacking for shipping is 26.8 lbs and 19" x 18" x 3.5".
