Portable multi-channel AWG unit with easy Ethernet/LXI connection

Portable multi-channel AWG unit with easy Ethernet/LXI connection
19/08/2019

The new DN2.65x series of generatorNETBOX instruments are compact, portable, easy to connect arbitrary waveform generators, available with 4, 8 or 16 fully synchronous channels and offer output rates of 40 MS/s or 125 MS/s. Signals can be generated with a programmable output swing of up to ±6 V into high impedance, or ±3 V into 50 Ω. Waveforms can be created from equations, imported from other devices (such as digitisers and oscilloscopes), or other software programs. The units come with drivers, so that users can write their own control programs in almost any popular programming language.

These waveform generators also include a large on-board memories of 64 mega samples per channel, that can be utilised in a number of different operating modes to allow the generation of simple or complex waveforms. Signals can even be continually generated whilst new waveform data is being loaded to the on-board memory, further extending the time of replay. Many operation modes add to versatility including Single-Shot, Loop, FIFO, Gated (external signal control of replay) and Sequence Replay modes. The latter allows external triggers or a key press to change waveform shape, on the fly. Four different programmable output filters are available to optimise the output signal quality and help ensure excellent dynamic performance.

Weighing as little as 6.3 kg, the generatorNETBOX can be used almost anywhere: freestanding on a test bench, rack mounted with other equipment, or even mobile (12 or 24 V DC power input option possible). Simply connect to a host computer (e.g. laptop or workstation) or anywhere on the corporate network via the Ethernet port. The front panel industry standard BNC connectors allow easy connection to all waveform channels, triggers, run and arm status, asynchronise I/O for polled external instrument control and a way to connecting a reference clock from your own system, should you wish.

External driver software is included in delivery, allowing users can write their own control programs in almost any popular programming language. This includes C++, Visual Basic, VB.NET, C#, J#, Delphi and Python code. Third party software support is also provided for LabVIEW, LabWindows and MATLAB.

Whilst the generatorNETBOX is fully programmable, the instruments are fully self-contained and come with all the tools necessary to generate an unlimited variety of waveforms, using SBench6 Professional software that is supplied with every unit. It allows control over all the operating modes and hardware settings from a simple, easy-to-use, graphical user interface. The software also has a host of built-in features for waveform creation, data analysis and documentation. These include the EasyGenerator function for producing standard wave shapes such as sine, rectangular, triangle, saw-tooth, SINC and DC. Waveforms can also be created from equations, imported from other devices (such as digitisers and oscilloscopes) or other software programs. SBench 6 Professional even allows data import and export in the most popular formats such as ASCII, binary and WAV.

All units are shipped factory tested and include an industry leading five-year manufacturer’s warranty from Spectrum Instrumentation GmbH. Software and firmware updates, are available free of charge, so too is the U.K. based technical support from their experienced distributor DataQuest Solutions Ltd.
