Information:
                                    1 The Racal Instruments VXlbus microwave counter, Model
2151, is a microprocessor- controlled instrument offering
high-accuracy measurements with a comprehensive range of
facilities. These facilities include Automatic/Manual
Operation, Tracking, Offset, Multiply, and Store and Recall.
All the instrument’s functions are controlled remotely via
the VXI interface.
2 The Racal Instruments VXlbus UHF counter, Model 2051,
offers high accuracy measurement over a reduced frequency
range, with a similar range of facilities to those provided
on the Model 2151.
MEASUREMENT FUNCTIONS
Frequency A Function
3 The Frequency A Function is used to measure the frequency
of the signal applied to INPUT A. A resolution of up to ten
digits can be selected with a gate time of 1 millisecond to
20 seconds depending on the resolution selected.
Frequency B Function
4 The Frequency B Function is used to measure the frequency
of the signal applied to INPUT B. A resolution of up to ten
digits can be selected with a gate time of 1 millisecond to
20 seconds depending on the resolution selected.
Frequency C Function (2151 only)
5 The Frequency C Function is used to measure the frequency
of the signal applied to INPUT C. A resolution of 0.1 Hz to
1 MHz can be selected with a gate time of 1 millisecond to
10 seconds depending on the resolution selected and
frequency being sampled.
Ratio C/B Function (2151 only)
6 The Ratio C/B Function is used to measure the ratio of the
frequency applied to INPUT C to that applied to INPUT B.
Ratio C/A Function (2151 only)
7 The Ratio C/A Function is used to measure the ratio of the
frequency applied to INPUT C to that applied to INPUT A.
Ratio B/A Function
8 The Ratio B/A Function is used to measure the ratio of the
frequency applied to INPUT B to that applied to INPUT A.
