The PM 5132 function generator is an instrument designed
for applications extending from the educational to the
general purpose area.
It produces sinewave, triangular and squarewave output
signals as well as positive and negative pulses, the
frequencies of which are adjustable in seven linear
sub-ranges from 0.1 Hz to 2 MHz. The frequency vernier
allows the frequency setting to be varied from -5% to +5%.
The output voltage is continuously adjustable from 3 Vpp
to 30 Vpp and can be attenuated in steps of 10 dB to
A continuously adjustable d.c. output voltage can be
selected separately or whenever used as d.c. offset
voltage added to the selected output signal.
The internal resistance of the generator can be selected
by means of a pushbutton between 50Ω and 600Ω.
The duty cycle can be set to a fixed value of 50 %
or is continuously adjustable between 10 % and 90 %.
The generator frequency is controllable in each of the
seven sub-ranges (internal sweep). The sweep period is
adjustable within a range of 0.05 s to 100 s. Moreover
external sweep and frequency modulation can be performed.
For TTL applications a separate output is available.
The ergonomic design of controls and sockets serves
for convenient operating of the instrument.
