    The Agilent 5384A Frequency Counter utilizes interpolar-enhanced reciprocal counting to provide outstanding performance at a low cost. Frequency coverage allows measurements from 10 Hz to 225 MHz, with resolution of 9 digits per second. The 5384A incorporates a programmable alphanumeric display, accessible remotely via either HP-IB (standard) or HP-IL (optional). The liquid crystal display (LCD) reduces component count, is easy to read (indoors or out), and improves counter reliability and serviceability.

    The half-rack width 5384A instrument is portable, rackable, and stackable for use in the field, at a workbench, or as part of an ATE system. Options include a four-hour-capacity battery pack, and a high-stability oven oscillator for higher accuracy. Features:

  • High input sensitivity extends applications
  • Extensive input conditioning improves accuracy
  • Variable display digits improve readability
  • External dc operation extends portability
  • High Input Sensitivity At least 15 mV rms sensitivity reduces the need for preamps and improves low-level signal measurement accuracy.
  • Extensive Input Conditioning - A low pass filter, automatic or manual attenuator and trigger level control features provide versatile signal-to-noise conditioning for optimum accuracy.
  • Variable Display Digits - View only readable digits from stable signals by controlling the number of display digits. Use as few as 3 or as many as 11 digits.
  • External dc Operation - Wide range (9-15V) external dc input power allows use of sources such as 12V automobile power to keep the timebase warm, or charge the battery option while in transit to remote sites.
