1396B General Radio Generator
- Frequency Range: DC to 2 MHz
- Signal attenuated >60 dB between bursts
- Amplitude: >10 VP (7 V RMS) max
- On-Off times: 10 µs to 10 sec or 1 to 129 periods of switched or other signal
Fast and easy, the 1396B Tone-Burst Generator fills the gap between steady-state CW testing and step-function, or pulse, testing of amplifiers, meters, etc. It is ideally suited for applications such as the test and calibration of transducers and amplifiers, the measurement of distortion and transient response of amplifiers and loudspeakers, and the routine testing of filters and AC meters. The unit acts as a fast, coherent switch that alternately interrupts and passes an input signal, thus chopping into bursts a sine wave, or continuous tone, applied to the input.
