Two Channel Models
The 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.
or Combined Display
The graphic LCD can be switched
between the two outputs or can be set to show the
parameters or waveforms for both channels
The currently selected output
parameters are shown in reverse video.
The two channels can be operated
completely independently as if they were two separate
The 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.
When 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.
The relative phase can be set from
-360 degrees to +360 degrees with 0.1 degree resolution.
Pressing the ‘align’ key phase synchronises the two
channels with the specified phase offset.
Either 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.
