High Frequency High Power Function Generator

Product Code: SF-9580

Description

Simple design

For basic use, you just operate two large buttons: one for frequency, one for amplitude. That’s it. If you want to change waveform or to utilize the new step and sweep modes, the display keeps you updated on the status of the generator.

Unique frequency control

The frequency is set by a speed sensitive button. Turn slowly to set the display’s last digit. Turn faster and the response accelerates softly. We have designed this function to work intuitively in practical experiments with common physics equipment.

Drive speaker and vibrators directly

The built-in 10 W power amplifier effortlessly drives power-consuming equipment such as a vibrator or speaker. The amplifier can deliver more than 1 A for all frequencies between 0.001 Hz and 100 kHz.

Advanced features

The generator connects to your PC through a standard USB cable. Custom defined waveforms (e.g. created by means of a spreadsheet) can be saved to the generator. Sequences of settings can be programmed for automatic execution.


Features

  • Unique frequency control: The frequency is set by a speed sensitive button. Turn slowly to set the display’s last digit. Turn faster, and the response accelerated softly. Design to intuitively work in practical experiments with common physics equipment.
  • Drive speaker and vibrators directly: The built-in 10 W power amplifier drives effortlessly power-consuming equipment such as a vibrator or speaker. The amplifier can deliver more than 1 A for all frequencies between 0.001 Hz and 100 kHz.
  • Step mode: In many applications you need to study a physical system at a fundamental frequency and at different multiples of this frequency. The special step feature makes this task a breeze.
  • Sweep mode: The generator can sweep through a frequency range in order to discover eventual resonances. You decide the frequency range and the speed. You have the choice between a linear sweep (fixed number of Hz per time) and a logarithmic sweep (fixed number of octaves per time).
  • Advanced features: The generator connects to your PC through a standard USB cable and acts as a USB memory stick. Custom defined waveforms (e.g. created by means of a spreadsheet) can be saved to the generator. Sequences of settings can be programmed for automatic execution.
