Agilent / HP / Keysight 8116A
8116A 50 MHZ PULSE/FUNCTION GENERATOR
The Agilent / HP 8116A is fully programmable and features pulse as well as function generator capabilities in one small unit.
A broad 1 mHz - 50 MHz band for all waveforms and a wide choice of operating and modulating modes assure high flexibility, plus good repeatability which makes the Agilent / HP 8116A a sound, long-term investment.
Handling of the HP 8116A is simplified by a unique, microprocessor-controlled, operating concept which ensures a clear overview of the compact front panel at all times. When the mode and waveform have been selected, illuminated labels show which parameters must be set. There's no clutter, no confusion.
In normal mode, the HP 8116A's auto- vernier increments any desired parameter continuously until a stop signal is applied. This means that thresholds can be measured automatically, without a controller.
The HP 8116A's output can be programmed in terms of high and low levels or in terms of amplitude and offset. Consequently a direct, automatic, conversion is always feasible so that the HP 8116A can be programmed in the same terms as the device is specified.
Devices can be protected by the limit feature. This prevents the output from exceeding a given magnitude.
For applications such as laser diodes or dc motors, square waves can be programmed for constant duty cycles from 10% to 90%. The Agilent / HP 8116A provides pulse width modulation and pulse recovery capability in Pulse mode.
Haverfunctions, available in External Trigger, Gate and Burst modes, extend the applications to areas such as telephone line and vibration testing.
All waveforms can be amplitude or frequency modulated. VCO operation allows frequency variation over two decades with an external voltage; consequently transducer output can be conditioned for mag tape recording, or frequency-shift keying or linear sweep can be carried out.
The Option 001 in sweep mode covers the wide 1 mHz - 50 MHz band in a single up sweep. Test setups require no more than an X-Y recorder or scope because all necessary control signals are available. The HP 8116A sweeps can be internally triggered, if desired.
Powerful capability, small size and wide specified temperature range make the Agilent 8116A a good choice for automatic test systems.
Proper operation is always ensured by the instrument's error detector which makes the Agilent / HP 8116A’s output reliable. Also, the built-in test and diagnosis feature verifies correct function each time the instrument is switched on.
