    Options
  • Option 010 (High Stability Time Base)
  • Option 011 (HP-IB interface)
  • Option 020 (Digital Voltmeter)
  • Option 021 (High Performance Digital Voltmeter)
  • Option 030 (Channel C - measurements to 512 MHz)
  • Option 031 (Channel C - measurements to 1300 MHz)
  • Option 040 (High Performance Universal Module)
  • Option 050 (Combination of options 020 & 031)

  • Burst and CW measurements to 100 Mhz. Special gating circuits start a measurement only when an input signal is present, allowing burst frequencies to be measured as easily as CW signals.
  • Single shot time interval measurements: 100 ns single shot resolution
  • Display: 9 digit LED display. The ninth digit is only used with channel C functions (i.e. FREQ C, RATIO C/A, Events C, A->B.
  • Blanking feature supresses display of unwanted zeros to left of most significant digit
  • Storage: holds reading between samples, can be overwritten by read panel switch.
  • Sample rate is variable from less than 2ms between measurements to HOLD which holds display indefinitely.
  • Gate output: rear panel output, TTL levels, high if gate is open
  • Period, period average, ratio, totalize, scale features.
  • Trigger lights blink when channel is triggering. The light is on when input is above trigger level. This simplifies trigger level adjustments.
  • Approx. weight: 20 lbs
  • Approx. size: 16.75" W x 3.5" H x 17.5" D (includes knob clearance)
