The WILTRON Model 610C Sweep Generator is a precision,
compact instrument used to provide high-accuracy.
swept-frequency measurements from 100kHz to 18.5GHz. This
solid-state unit features a very flat output, built-in
leveling, low harmonics, and a versatile frequency marker
system. An extensive series of RF Plug-Ins makes possible
this wide frequency coverage. A variety of factory installed
options extends the versatility of this instrument to suit
the individual needs of the customer.
As shipped, the Model 610C Sweep Generator is housed in its
own sturdy cabinet for bench top use. A tilt stand is
provided to raise the front panel for better Slide Rule Dial
viewing. Rack mounting ears are available at no extra charge
With these installed and the rubber feet removed, the unit
will then occupy 7 inches in a standard 19-inch rack console.
The Main Frame of the Model 610C is used to generate an
accurate, stable, voltage ramp which drives the oscillator
control circuits in the RF Plug-In being used.
Power supplies and leveling control circuitry are also
housed in this unit. Refer to Section III for a functional
description of each circuit and how they relate to one another.
A versatile system of variable frequency markers is
incorporated into this instrument. With the RF PIP marker
selected, the RF output from the RF Plug-In will be reduced
momentarily to provide the marker. When set to VIDEO, a
negative video pulse at the preset marker frequency is
generated. With the INTENSITY marker selected, the sweep is
delayed momentarily causing an intensification of the
The frequency at which the selected marker appears is
determined by the VAR FREQ MKR control setting.
