Special Order & Custom Products. We have over 34 years of experience of supplying "one-of-a-kind" pulse generators, laser diode drivers, constant-current pulsers, and amplifiers at near-stock prices!
IEEE 488.2 GPIB, RS-232, Ethernet. Many Avtech pulse generators are available in the "-B" format, which offers computer control through standard IEEE488.2 GPIB and RS-232 ports. These units are also available with the -VXI Internet Control Option, which adds an Ethernet port for remote control using the VXI-11.3, ssh (secure shell), telnet, and http (web) protocols.
Test Equipment Connection is an authorized reseller of Avtech equipment in the United States.
We are constantly adding new products in response to customer requests. The list below is just a partial selection of some recent designs that are now available as standard products. Contact us if your ideal product isn't here - maybe it will be our next new product!
AVRQ-5-B. A new CMTI tester for optocouplers and other devices, with transitions rates as high as 120 kV/us!
AV-156M-B. A new 1.5A current pulser, with a 0 to 350V compliance voltage range! Ideal for testing series arrays of LED lighting devices.
AVR-CC2-B. A new reverse recovery time tester, with peak currents of +80 and -40 Amps! Ideal for MIL-STD-750-4 Method 4031.5 Condition C tests!
AVR-D3-B. A +/- 250V, +/- 5 Amp pulser for high-power transistor switching and storage time tests (MIL-STD-750E Method 3251.1 / MIL-S-19500).
-VXI Option. The -VXI option adds a rear-panel Ethernet connector, allowing an instrument to be remotely controlled using the VXI-11.3, ssh (secure shell), telnet, and http (web) protocols. In particular, the VXI-11.3 features allows software like LabView to control an instrument using standard VISA communications drivers and network cabling, instead of using old-style GPIB controllers and cabling.
