Agilent / HP / Keysight 8656A
8656A SIGNAL GENERATOR
The Agilent / HP 8656A is a synthesized signal generator with a carrier frequency range of 100 kHz to 990 MHz.
The output amplitude of 8656A signal generator is leveled and calibrated from +13 to -127 dBm. AM/FM functions can be individually selected.
The Agilent / HP 8656A is HP-IB programmable. The carrier frequency, output amplitude, and modulation functions can be remotely programmed via the HP-IB.
Frequency resolution of 8656A signal generator is 100 Hz or 250 Hz depending on the carrier frequency selected. An 8-digit LED display of the carrier frequency in MHz is provided. Push button keys permit coarse tuning, fine tuning, and incrementing of the carrier frequency.
The Agilent / HP 8656A signal generator features a versatile internal and external modulation capability for AM and FM. A 2-digit display of AM depth or FM peak deviation frequencies is provided with 10 LED annunciators used to display internal or external modulation source information.
The Agilent 8656A is capable of remote operation via the HP-IB.
Option 001 provides a 10 MHz crystal reference for increased frequency accuracy and stability.
Rear Panel Inputs and Outputs (Option 002) RF Output and Modulation Input/Output Connectors are located on the rear panel of the 8656A signal generator.
Ease of handling the Agilent / HP 8656A is increased with the front panel handles (Option 907).
Rack Flange Kit (Option 908) contains all necessary hardware and installation instructions for mounting the 8565A signal generator in a rack with 19 inch spacing.
The Rack Flange and Front Handle Combination Kit (Option 909) is not simply a front handle kit and rack flange kit packed together. The combination is made up of unique parts which include both functions.
