The HM8143 is a multifunctional workhorse, you get 3 instruments in one. A
power supply with 3 independent floating outputs which may be series or parallel
connected. All outputs may be turned on or off by pushing a button. The 30V/2A
outputs may be externally modulated or may be operated in the tracking mode
allowing you to change their voltages currents simultaneously.
Sense terminals measure the voltages directly at the respective loads thus
keeping the load voltages constant. For digital circuits a 5V/2A output is
provided. The HAMEG HM8143 is an arbitrary waveform generator with 1024 points
allowing it to generate user-defined waveforms in the low frequency range. The
arbitrary signals are generated digitally and can be defined fairly simply. In
general, an arbitrary signal consists of a multitude of amplitude levels which
are addressed one after the other thus creating a waveform which may be
periodically repeated. The signal may be freely defined within the instrument
specifications and will be stored by the instrument.
Such signals may be defined by using the RS-232, IEEE-488 or USB interfaces.
The two 30V outputs may be modulated using the rear terminals. The high slew
rate of 1V/µs for modulation and the minimum pulse width of 100µs in the
arbitrary mode allow complex load profiles. For external modulation the low
distortion of the linear output stage is available over the full power range.
HAMEG Instruments are well known for oscilloscopes and test equipment for more
than 50 years.
