The Solar 9355-1 Pulse Generator is designed to provide impulse excitation by means of an injection probe placed around interconnecting cables or power wires. The unit uses a charged transmission line (50 ohms) to generate a pulse with less than 2 nanoseconds rise and fall time, and duration of approximately 30 nS, calibrated in a 50 ohms fixture to deliver up to 5 amperes at a rate of 30 p.p.s. for one minute as required by MIL-STD-461D/E, test method CS115.
The charged line potential of the Solar 9355-1 is adjustable from less than 2 volts to greater than 2000 volts. The repetition rate is variable from less than 0.6 p.p.s. to greater than 150 p.p.s., or single pulses manually triggered by a panel mounted push button. Digital displays monitor the charging voltage and pulse repetition rate. This unit can also be used as an impulse calibrator to provide an adjustable spectral output up to 150 dB V/MHz over the frequency range of 1 KHz to 10 MHz constant within +1 dB.
