All models are dual-channel and provide a main output voltage that can be varied from 0 to 10 VPP into 50 O. A secondary output can be varied from 0 to 3 VPP into 50 O. Large 3.5” color LCDs, rotary control knobs, and numeric keypads with dedicated waveform keys and output buttons make waveform adjustments quick and effortless.
Equipped with a 14-bit, 125 MSa/s, 16k point arbitrary waveform generator, the 4050 Series provides users 48 built-in arbitrary waveforms and the ability to create and load up to 10 custom 16 kpt waveforms using the included waveform editing software via a standard USB interface. An optional USB-to-GPIB adapter is available for GPIB connectivity.
The 4050 Series offers: amplitude and frequency modulation (AM/FM), double sideband amplitude modulation (DSB-AM), amplitude and frequency shift keying (ASK/FSK), phase modulation (PM), and pulse width modulation (PWM). Other standard features include linear and logarithmic sweep function, built-in counter, Sync output, trigger I/O terminal, and USB host port on the front panel to save and recall instrument settings and waveforms. A standard external 10- MHz reference clock input is provided for synchronization of the instrument to another generator, a feature not typically found in generators at this price point.
B&K Precision’s 4050 Series products are backed by a standard three-year warranty. The 4052 (5 MHz) costs $499. The 4053 (10 MHz) costs $599. The 4054 (25 MHz) costs $850. The 4055 (50 MHz) costs $1,050.
