Product Tours HelpThese Product Tours are just a structured sequence of web pages. Click the ► button to step through them.
- The navigation buttons have the following functions:
- |◄ takes you back to the beginning of the current tour
- ◄ is the same as your browser back button
- ▲ takes you up a level in the hierarchy
- ► steps forward to the next page
- The drop-lists give another way of accessing the same pages
- shows and hides a map of the structure of the tour with links to each page.
- expands the tour into its own window (only visible when embedded in another page.)
TG251xA and TG501xA Series Tour Map
Two channel generators: TG5012A and TG2512A
TG5012A and TG2512A - independent, coupled or tracking modesThe TG5012A and TG2512A have two identical channels and represent excellent value for money when compared to purchasing two generators.
Unlike some other two channel generators, both channels provide the full performance and specification, along with entirely independent operation when required.
Individual or Combined DisplayThe graphic LCD can be switched between the two outputs or can be set to show the parameters or waveforms for both channels simultaneously.
The currently selected output parameters are shown in reverse video.
Independent Channel OperationThe two channels can be operated completely independently as if they were two separate generators.
Coupled OperationThe frequencies of the two channels can be coupled such that if frequency of one channel is changed the frequency of the other channel also changes either by a fixed ratio or fixed offset.
Frequency coupling can be performed if the carrier waveforms on both channels are either Sine, Square, Ramp, Pulse or Arbitrary.
Amplitudes (and DC offsets) of the two channels can be coupled such that changing the amplitude and offset on one channel changes the amplitude and offset of both channels.
Outputs of the two channels can be coupled such that switching the output on/off on one channel switches the output on/off of both channels.
Tracking OperationWhen in tracking mode both channels behave as one channel. If inverse tracking is selected, both channel still behave as one channel except that the output of channel 2 is inverted.
Relative PhaseThe relative phase can be set from -360 degrees to +360 degrees with 0.1 degree resolution. Pressing the ‘align’ key phase synchronizes the two channels with the specified phase offset.
Cross-Channel TriggerEither channel can be triggered by the other channel to set up a complex and versatile inter channel trigger scheme.
Each channel can have its trigger output waveform set up independently. Trigger Out may be selected to be carrier waveform referenced, modulation waveform referenced, sweep referenced, burst referenced or currently selected trigger of the channel.
