The world's highest performance, fully automated, upgradeable oscilloscope calibration workstation

Oscilloscope calibration can be complex, time consuming and expensive. A significant amount of skilled operator interaction and interpretation is often required to complete the job, and today’s multi-channel instruments frequently mean that a great deal of lead switching is required. Even automated systems require significant manual intervention to complete elements of the most simple calibration procedures. Worse still, switching systems or multiplexers used to enable a degree of automation often contribute more errors and aberrations than the instrument being calibrated.

The 9500B Auxiliary Function capabilities calibrate oscilloscope functions often overlooked on other calibrators.

  • DC and squarewave currents up to 100 mA calibrate current probes
  • Composite video signals test TV sync separator functions
  • Linear ramps calibrate trigger level markers and check DSOs for missing bits
  • High current 5 V to 20 V pulses test 50W terminator protection
  • Zero skew accurately aligns pulse edges to evaluate channel delays in multi-channel scopes
  • AUX IN routes external calibration waveforms to an Active Head’s BNC/SMA connector
  • Resistance and capacitance functions directly measure oscilloscope input impedance
  • Short/open circuit outputs allow testing of oscilloscope input leakage current
