  • The Tektronix AA 5001 is a programmable Distortion Analyzer packaged as a two-wide TM 5000 plug-in.
  • It provides measurements of total harmonic distortion, gain/loss, signal to noise ratio and audio levels.
  • The measurements are accomplished automatically, with no level setting, nulling or meter ranging to be done. The measurement result appears on a 3 digit LED display with no additional scale factoring necessary.
  • Full automatic 'Total Harmonic Distortion plus Noise' (THD+N) or 'Intermodulation Distortion' (IMD) measurements.
  • The fundamental frequency range is 10 Hz to 100 kHz, with harmonic measurements to 300 kHz.
  • Auto ranging digital voltmeter from 200 V (full scale) to 200 V (full scale).
  • Four switchable filters: 400 Hz high pass - audio bandpass - 80 kHz low pass - CCIR weighting filter
  • Residual noise: < 3 V
  • The AA 5001 provides HP-IB compatibility plus programmability.
  • Option 02 adds fully automatic SMPTE, DIN and CCIF difference tone measurements (min. input level 60 mV).
    Needs a TM 5000 series power supply/frame, occupies 2 slots.
