Equipment and Components for the RF and Microwave industry

Signal Generators
Ethernet Control

  • Satellite Bands – L, S, C, X, Ku, DBS, Ka, Q
  • Frequency Steps from 1KHz
  • Local and Remote Control with GUI
  • Internal or External Reference
  • Ethernet or RS485 Control
  • Good Phase Noise
  • Choice of Housing

The ESG series of Ethernet controlled signal generators provide economical and versatile solutions where there is a need to input microwave frequencies for test purposes at remote locations, antenna sites, equipment cabins and laboratories related to satellite communications, radar systems, EW systems, scientific apparatus and similar applications.

Covering frequencies from 0.5 to 46 GHz in bands specific to individual industries and also for general purpose applications, these instruments are controllable in frequency and level either locally or remotely via a GUI thereby facilitating the application of more efficient testing regimes.
