0.1 Hz to 2 MHz Frequency Range
The Model 180 covers the most popular test frequencies, 0.1
2 MHz, in seven overlapping ranges. The 1000:1 frequency
span eliminates the need for frequent range changes.
DC Offset With Calibrated Zero
The convenient front panel dc offset control lets you easily
raise or lower the output waveform with respect to normal
signal ground. And, so you don’t have to use an oscilloscope
every time you want a balanced waveform, the 180 generator
gives you a calibrated zero dc offset position.
Internal 1000:1 Sweep
In addition to the main output generator, the Model 180 has
an internal ramp generator for frequency sweeping. The
frequency may be swept over a 1000:1 ratio so that, for
example you can cover the entire audio band from 20 Hz to 20
kHz in one sweep. In addition, you can also control the
frequency with an external voltage input. This allows you to
use the generator as a dc programmed source or as an FM source.
Full 20 Volt Peak-To-Peak Output
For added performance, the 180 function generator has been
given a full 20 volt peak-to-peak output (10V
p-p into a 50Ω load). This high power output ensures that
you can drive your low impedance circuits without saturating
or distorting the generator signal, yet the low level output
gives you clean adjustable signals to well below 50 mV.
TTL Pulse Output
For digital circuit applications, we have included a TTL
pulse output on the Model 180. This pulse is fully TTL
compatible and its frequency is the same as the generator
output. It can drive up to 20 TTL loads.
