  1. AC Power Input
    This generator can accept AC power supply of 100-240V, 45-440Hz.Power Fuse: 250V, T2 A.
  2. LAN
    Connect the generator to the local area network for remote control throughthis interface. This generator conforms to LXI-C instrument standards and can quickly build test system with other devices to easily realize system integration.
  3. Security Lock Hole
    Users can use the security lock (buy it by themselves) to lock the instrumentat a fixed location.
  4. USB Device
    PC can be connected through this interface to control the generator remotelythrough PC software.
  5. 10MHz In/Out
    BNC female connector with 50Ω nominal impedance. The function of this
    connector is determined by the type of clock used by the generator. DG4000
    can use internal or external clock (refer to the introduction in Clock Source ).

    • When internal clock source is used, the connector (used as 10MHz Out) can output 10MHz clock signal generated by the internal crystal oscillator of the generator.
    • When external clock source is used, the connector (used as 10MHz In) accepts a 10MHz external clock signal.
    • This connector is usually used to synchronize multiple instruments (refer to the introduction in Sync).
  6. CH1: Mod/FSK/Trig
    BNC female connector with 50Ω nominal impedance. Its function is determined by the current working mode of CH1.

    • Mod:
      If AM, FM, PM, PWM or OSK is enabled for CH1 and external modulation source is used, this connector accepts an external modulation signal.
    • FSK:
      If ASK, FSK or PSK is enabled for CH1 and external modulation source is used, this connector accepts an external modulation signal (users can set the polarity of the signal).
    • Trig In:If CH1 is in sweep or burst mode and external trigger source is used, this connector accepts an external trigger signal (users can set the polarity of the signal).
    • Trig Out:
      If CH1 is in sweep or burst mode and internal or manual trigger source is used, this connector outputs a trigger signal with specified edge.
  7. CH2: Mod/FSK/Trig
    BNC female connector with 50Ω nominal impedance. Its function is determined by the current working mode of CH2.

    • Mod:
      If AM, FM, PM, PWM or OSK is enabled for CH2 and external modulation source is used, this connector accepts an external modulation signal.
    • FSK:
      If ASK, FSK or PSK is enabled for CH2 and external modulation source is used, this connector accepts an external modulation signal (users can set the polarity of the signal).
    • Trig In:
      If CH2 is in sweep or burst mode and external trigger source is used, this connector accepts an external trigger signal (users can set the polarity of the signal).
    • Trig Out:
      If CH2 is in sweep or burst mode and internal or manual trigger source is used, this connector outputs a trigger signal with specified edge.
  8. External Signal Input (Counter)
    BNC female connector with 50Ω nominal impedance. It is used to accept an external signal to be measured by the counter.

Standard identical 2 channels
with frequency and phase coupling
The extra large display with a diagonal size of 17.18 cm (7″) and a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels can easily display the details from both channels of the device. Both channels feature the full range of functions and can be synchronized phase-dependently. This function turns the device into a true dual-channel generator.
