The Model 2414B Arbitrary Waveform Generator has 12-bit resolution and operates at 20 MS/s for applications requiring fine timing resolution including the testing of production pagers, laser beam control, MEMS driver systems, and for providing communications' modulation signals and sonar waveforms. At 128k words of active waveform memory, the system can store up to 1,000 waveforms, and correlated with each waveform are 4 independent single-bit data streams.

Laser Beam Analyzer
The stand-alone Beam Alyzer[TM] measures the width, ellipticity, profile, position, output power, and optical noise of cw laser beams. The results are displayed in real time on large LED indicators or on a user-supplied VGA monitor. Data can also be accumulated, logged, and stored for later analysis. The device uses multiple scanning knife-edges to scan up to seven independent axes with resolution of one micrometer.

Air Leak Tester
Users of the Model Q6000 Air Leak Tester will be able to make full use of multichannel synchronous and asynchronous testing. The benefit of the latter being that operators do not have to wait for one another to load and connect all the test pieces before the leak test can be started. Up to four intelligent detector modules can be connected to the control unit for remote programming with up to ten programs each.

Model 3570D is an AC/DC Hipot with a built in Insulation Resistance testing function. This provides 3-in-1 functionality in a mid-range instrument covering the three most common safety tests, AC Hipot, DC Hipot, and Insulation Resistance. The IR range of the Model 3570D features 0-1000 volts DC, and a measuring range of 1 megohm to 1 gigohm. Tests may be sequenced using set-up memories to include AC Hipot, DC Hipot, and IR individually or in any combination so tests may run automatically.
