SG6000PRO PureSine RF Generator


SKU: SG6000PRO Category:


The DS Instruments SG6000PRO RF Signal Generator continues to set the industry standard in affordable ultra-compact Signal Generation. The SG6000PRO provides a pure low-harmonic signal unlike most other compact signal generators. This fully synthesized, modern fractional-N synthesis device covers upwards of 7.1GHz and down to only 20MHz. Output power is calibrated and adjustable between +17dBm and -40dB in 0.25dB steps, or continuously via the internal variable attenuator. The bright OLED display provides useful feedback for the user, and front control buttons provide a quick alternative to USB control. The PRO has phase noise approximately 25dB lower than the standard SG6000L, a much smaller minimum frequency step size, a more accurate output level attenuator, and a wider frequency range.

         Shipping Rev 9 with enhanced harmonic filtering as of 2023!
