Wavetek 2410R Generator
RF Signal Generator
INTRODUCTION The Wavetek Model 2410 is a dual microprocessor controlled, single-loop synthesized signal Generator that covers the frequency range of 10 kHz to 1100 MHz. It has an output power level continuously adjustable from 4-13 dBm to -127 dBm. In addition to CW operation, it is capable of AM/FM operation from an internal or external source. The 2410 has a very broad 500 kHz to 1 MHz peak FM deviation over the majority of its operating range. Standard features include an exclusive AutoCal® selfcalibration function for frequency and amplitude, extensive user diagnostics, an automatic power up test sequence, and 16 nonvolatile memory locations to store front panel settings. A 10 MHz sine wave reference output is available at the rear panel. A talk/listen GPIB fully conforming to the IEEE-488 standard is standard for the Model 2410. Because it utilizes the minimum uniqueness concept, the 2410 is easily conformed to any ATE system. It is fully compatible with the entire Wavetek 2500 family of instruments. All operational controls are located on the front panel. Controls include keypad switches for entry of all RF output numeric parameters. A 4-key cursor provides increment/decrement entry of numeric data in digit steps, with any displayed digit selectable as the digit around which changes occur. Instrument settings and operational status are indicated on a two-line LCD display. The 2410 is a space-saving 3/4-rack size. (Two optional rack mount adaptor kits are available.) 1.1.1 FREQUENCY CHARACTERISTICS The carrier frequency may be set from 10 kHz to 1100 MHz with 10 Hz resolution and .00025% (2.5 ppm) accuracy. Frequency aging is <1 ppm/year. 1.1.2 MODULATION CHARACTERISTICS The instrument features both internal and external AM and FM capabilities. The internal modulation source may be set at a 400 or 1000 Hz rate. AM depth is specified from 0 to 100%. FM deviation can be set at peak values from 10 kHz to 1 MHz, depending upon the output frequency (see section A TTL compatible sine or square wave at 5 MHz or 10 MHz may be used as an external reference input. Internal and external sources may be used simultaneously to produce complex modulation. 1.1.3 OUTPUT LEVEL CHARACTERISTICS The Model 2410 has an RF output range of +13 dBm to -127 dBm with an accuracy of ±1.5 dB of the actual measured level. Level resolution is .1 dB. Output level may be read in dBm, dBmV, mV, or µV. Reverse power protection to 50 watts is standard. 1.1.4 AutoCal®/DlAGNOSTICS The Model 2410 utilizes a unique Auto-Cal® routine to perform a quick and easy almost completely automatic self-calibration. The routine is Software controlled, menu driven, and activated from the front panel. A variety of other menu driven diagnostic/control programming aids are standard with the 2410. 1.1.5 STORED SETTINGS Nonvolatile memory locations allow up to 16 complete front panel settings to be stored and recalled in any order. This storage permits fast and accurate recall of frequently used settings. The 2410 powers up with the same settings present when power was removed, except the RF output will be off. 1.1.6 ERROR INDICATORS The 2410 front panel display indicates the following error conditions: - An unlocked condition in the phase locked loop circuitry - An unleveled condition in the RF output leveler circuitry - A tripped RF circuit breaker - Modulation frequency reference error

USE OF THIS MANUAL This Instruction Manual for the Wavetek Model 2410 and 2410R RF Signal Generators contains eleven sections. The 2410R is the ruggedized version of the 2410. Although the majority of text refers to the 2410, this Instruction Manual is equally applicable for either unit. The major difference between the two is their case. The 2410R is packaged in a ruggedized case. The 2410 is not. Aside from the difference in case and the minor changes associated with that difference, the two have the same functions, the same electrical circuitry, and operate identically. Section 1 provides general information, including a brief discussion of operating characteristics, specifications, and available options. Section 2 contains detailed installation instructions, initial inspection instructions, an instrument checkout procedure, and storage instructions. Section 3 provides detailed operating instructions, including a comprehensive description of all front and rear panel controls, connectors, and displays. Section 4 contains performance tests that may be used to verify operation at the limits of specifications. THE FOLLOWING SECTIONS ARE MISSING! Section 5 provides maintenance procedures, including user diagnostics and the almost completely automatic calibration (AUTOCAL®) procedure. Section 6 describes remote operation across the GPIB Interface. Section 7 contains the principles of operation. This section begins with a general unit overview followed by a detailed, card level theory of operation. Section 8 provides troubleshooting instructions. Section 9 contains the reference drawings (schematics and assembly drawings). Section 10 contains the replaceable parts lists. Section 11 contains information related to the 2410R version of this unit. The ruggedized case (the ”R" in 2410R) is the only difference between the two units. Use of the 2410R ruggedized case requires slightly different cable placements on several circuit cards and other minor modifications of several assemblies. The modified assemblies have new parts lists associated with them. The modified assembly drawings and parts lists for 2410R are contained in this section. The manual contents, lists of figures and tables, and safety notes follow immediately after this page. No special tools or test equipment are required to service or maintain either of these units.
