The Series E-300 Sine-Square Wave Signal Generator was
especially developed to answer many
MODERN ELECTRONIC AMPLIFIER CIRCUIT TESTING PROBLEMS WHICH
CANNOT BE HANDLED WITH JUST A ROUTINE COMPLEMENT OF TEST
Specially note the "Performance Testing'' requirements for
High Fidelity Audio System, TV Video Amplifiers and other
wide bano oevices1.
An up-to-date Test Equipment installation can no longer be
considered complete, for comprehensive use, until an
instrument such as the Series E-3OO has been acquired.
For those who may not be familiar with Sine and Square Wave
testing techniques, a portion of this manual has been
especially prepared. A foundation is established as will
permit the operator to interpret oscillographic waveforms in
terms of Frequency Response, Distortion, etc.
Practical experience in the use of Sine and Square Waves
will develop recognition of moresustle differences in
waveform indications versus circuit conditions.
It will be found that certain circuits can apparently
tolerate sizeable degree of distortion and
DEPARTURE FROM "FLATNESS", - - - WHEREAS SUCH MAY NOT BE THE
CASE FOR OTHER AND MORE CRITICAL TYPES OF CIRCUITS. IT IS
THEREFORE ESSENTIAL THAT ONE BECOHE FAMILIAR WITH WHAT IS TO
BE EXPECTED OF THE AMPLIFIER OR EQUIPMENT UNDER TEST BEFORE
WAVEFORM ANALYSIS IS STARTED. THE BASIS OF COMPARISON IS
USUALLY THE MANUFACTURER'S SPECIFICATIONS OR THE OPERATOR'S
OWN EXPERIENCE WITH THE PARTICULAR AMPLIFIER WHOSE
PERFORMANCE IS TO BE ANALYZED ANo/oR ADJUSTED.
Appropriately applied, the Series E-300 Sine-Square Wave
Signal Generator will afford considerable STREAMLINING OF
AMPLIFIER TEST PROCEDURES WITH RESULTANT SAVINGS IN TIME AND
- - - AND WITH MORE UNIFORMLY HIGH STANDARDS OF APPARATUS
