TG6000 Tracking Generator


SKU: TG6000 Category:


The TG6000 is a generic RF Tracking Generator that can be used with many existing Spectrum Analyzers. It covers a range from DC to 6GHz and also functions as a standalone RF signal generator from 25 to 6000MHz.

The TG6000 can replace the Agilent HP 85640A external tracking generator and adds a Signal Generator function as well. In addition it covers the 2nd band, which the 85640A does not, providing a TG signal past 6GHz. A very good troubleshooting and measuring tool to easily characterize filters and attenuators!

We now have a Band 3 version to 12GHz here!

*Units without LO output option must be modified with a simple directional coupler. This should effect the internal LO by around 1.0dB. We recommend the ZADC-10-63+ inserted after the last power amp.
