Cortland Street Chicago, Mlinois 60635 DYNASCAN KN PNQOMNDATIONI ‘TEST INSTRUMENT SAFETY WARNING Normal use of test equipment exposes you to certain amount of danger from eoctisl shock because testing must often be performed where exposed voltage is prevent. An electrical shock causing 10 miiamps of current to pats through the heert will stop most human heartbeats, Higher voltages pose an even greater threat because sch voltages can more easily produce a lethal current. However, voltage as low as 35 volts DC ar AC RMS should be considered dangerous and hazardous since it can produce a lethal current under certain conditions. Your normal work habits should include all accepted practices that will prevent contact with exposed high voltage, and that wil steer curent away from your heart in case of accidental contact with s high voltage. You wil significantly reduce the risk factor if you know and observe th following safety precautions 1, Don't expose high voltage needlessly. Remove housings and covers only wht necessary. ‘Tum off equipment while making tes connsctons in high voltage circuits, 2 Use an insulated floor material or arg, insulated floor mat to stand on, and an insulated ‘work surface an which to place equipment; and make certain such surfaces are not damp, ‘or wet, Where insulated flor surface snot available, wear hear gloves. 3. Use the time-proven “one hand in the pocket” technique while handling an instrament probe. Be particulary careful to avid contacting s nearby metal objet that could provide 2 good ground rturn path, 4, Always use an isolation transformer to power transformerles “hot chassis” equipment, ‘where one side of the AC powerline i connected directly to the chasis. This includes ‘most recent television sets and audio equipment. Without an islaton transformer, the chasis of such equipment may be floating at line voltage (120 VAC, 60 Hz in USA), epending upon which way the 2-vire AC power plug is inserted. Not only does thi present a dangerous shock hazard if the chasis touched, but damage to test instruments for the equipment under test may rerult from connecting the ground lead of some test Instruments to a “hot” chasis: The ground lad of most oilloxcopes and most other test instruments with 3-wire power plugs sat earth ground ‘5. On test instruments or any equipment with 2 Jove AC power plug, ute only a Svire outlet, This i a safety feature to Keep the Rousing or other expoted elements at earth round. 6. If posibe, familiarize youre with the equipment being tested and the location of its hgh voltage points. However, remember that high voltage may appear at unexpected points in defective equipment. 11 Also remember that AC line voltage is present on some power input cucut pints auch as Como switches, fuses, power transformers, et., even when the equipment i turned off. 8 Never work alone. Someone should be nearby to render aid if necessary Training in CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) first aids highly recommended.

It combines the operation of four instruments into one — function generator, pulse generator, sweep generator, and tone burst generator. With this versatility, it has a vast number of applications in both analog ‘and digital electronics n the engineering, manufacturing, servicing, educational, and hobbyist fields. ‘The heart of the function generator is a VCG (voltage-controlled generator) that produces precision sine, square, or triangle waves over the .02 Hz to 2 MHz range. This encompasses subaudible, audio, ultrasonic, and RF applications. A continuously variable DC offset allows the output to be injected directly into circuits at the correct bias level ‘Variable symmetry of the output waveforms converts the instrument to a pulse generator capable of generating rectangular waves or pulses, ramp or sawtooth waves, and slewed sine waves of variable duty cycle. All waveforms can be inverted. ‘The sweep generator offers linear or log sweep with variable sweep rate and ‘sweep width up to 1000:1 frequency change. This allows one continuous sweep to ‘cover the entire 20 to 20,000 Hz audio band. The frequency response of any active ‘or passive device up to 2 MHz can be determined. ‘The tone burst generator chops the output into alternate on and off periods. Both the repetition rate and on/off duty cycle are variable. Tone burst testing is esential for speaker acoustics measurement, modulation limiter attack time ‘measurement, tone burst decoder alignment, and many other applications. The tone ‘burst is in integral half cycles of the frequency being gated. This allows synchronization of the waveform for oscilloscope viewing and eliminates transients ‘and frequency components not harmonically related to the frequency being gated. In addition to all the above features, an external signal may be applied to achieve amplitude modulation. Percentage of modulation is fully adjustable; also, ‘the carrier can be suppressed to obtain a double-sideband, suppressed carrier signal ‘Most functions can be generated simultaneously; thus itis posible to test effects of simultaneous AM and FM modulation, or to sweep during tone bursts.
