Prices - USA and Canada
Standard US/Canada prices are listed below. We can also provide you with a formal quote.
|Semiconductor Test Pulser||AVR-EBF8-B
||Base model. Units with the -B suffix include the IEEE-488.2 GPIB and RS-232 computer control feature and a 2m/6ft GPIB cable. Includes one AVX-TFR-MIX, unless otherwise specified. Also includes one AVX-FILT-10NS rise time filter.|
|Alternative Test Jig Configuration|
|Alternative axial no-bend test jig||-ANB||$0||Option. Not recommended for new installations. Use the -LORAX version for tRR tests, and the -HPOST version for tFR tests.|
|Alternative AR1 test jig||-AR1||$3498||Option. This option replaces the standard test jig with the -AR1 version.|
|Alternative DIP and mil-style flat pack jig||-DIPFP||$14998||Option. This option replaces the standard test jig with the -DIPFP version.|
|High-current low-inductance axial test jig||-HPOST||$0||Option. This option replaces the standard -MIX test jig with the -HPOST version. This is the standard jig for the AVR-EBF10-B.|
|Alternative MELF jig||-MELF||$0||Option. This option replaces the standard test jig with the -MELF version.|
|Standard MIX jig||-MIX||$0||Option. This is the standard configuration for most models, if not otherwise specified.|
|Alternative SQMELF jig||-SQMELF||$0||Option. This option replaces the standard test jig with the -SQMELF version.|
|Alternative stud jig||-STUD||$0||Option. This option replaces the standard test jig with the -STUD version.|
|Alternative TO-254AA jig||-TO254AA||$0||Option. This option replaces the standard test jig with the -TO254AA version.|
|Ethernet port, for remote control using VXI-11.3, ssh, telnet, and web||-VXI||$898||Option. Adds a rear-panel Ethernet connector, allowing the 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 cabling. (This eliminates the need for a GPIB controller card and its proprietary drivers.)|
|Rack Mount Kit||-R5||$298||Option. For 17-inch-wide models only. Check datasheet for instrument dimensions. (All -B units are 17 inches).|
|Extra GPIB cable, 1 meter||-X1||$49||Option.|
|Extra GPIB cable, 2 meters||-X2||$69||Option.|
|Extra GPIB cable, 4 meters||-X4||$89||Option.|
|Test Jig Connectors|
|BNC input and output connectors on the test jig||-BNC||$0||Option. Current designs use SMA connectors by default.|
|SMA input and output connectors on the test jig||-SMA||$0||Option. This is the standard configuration, if not otherwise specified.|
|AC Power Cords|
|Power cord for United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia||-AC00||$0||Option. BS 1363, 230V, 50 Hz.|
|Power cord for Australia, New Zealand||-AC01||$0||Option. AS 3112:2000, 230-240V, 50 Hz.|

|Power cord for Switzerland||-AC06||$0||Option. SEV 1011, 230V, 50 Hz.|
|Power cord for South Africa, India||-AC17||$0||Option. SABS 164-1, 220-250V, 50 Hz.|
|Power cord for Japan||-AC18||$0||Option. JIS 8303, 100V, 50-60 Hz.|
|Power cord for Israel||-AC19||$0||Option. SI 32, 220V, 50 Hz.|
|Power cord for China||-AC22||$0||Option. GB 1002-1, 220V, 50 Hz.|
|ATA shipping case||-ATA3||$898||Option. Ships the instrument in a heavy-duty ATA-style transport case, instead of the normal cardboard box. It can also serve as a storage case. This option is recommended for shipments outside of North America and Europe, and is mandatory when using a freight-forwarder or when shipping by any method other than FedEx/UPS. It is strongly recommended for all shipments to China. Pelican model 1690 for full-rack-width (17 inch / 430 mm) units, including all -B units. Pelican model 1610 for half-rack-width (8.5 inch / 215 mm) units. This option increases the shipping weight by 45 lbs / 20 kg (1690) or 24 lbs / 11 kg (1610).|
|Ship to USA or Canada, on Avtech FedEx Priority account||$0||Included in base price.|
|Ship globally, on customer FedEx or UPS account||$0||Excludes Austria, China, The Czech and Slovak Republics, Germany, India, Japan, Korea, Russia, Switzerland, Taiwan and Turkey. Consult your local representative for pricing.|
|Ship globally, on Avtech FedEx Priority account||Contact Avtech for pricing.||Excludes the above countries.|
|Ship globally, using a customer-specified freight forwarder||Contact Avtech for pricing.||Excludes the above countries. Not recommended. Due to the increased likelihood of shipping damage, the -ATA3 option (heavy-duty ATA shipping case) is mandatory for -PS, -C, and -B models.|
These prices are in U.S. dollars, and apply only to orders placed directly with Avtech from the United States and Canada. Reseller prices may be higher. A 5% academic discount is available for North American universities. Orders are non-cancellable, non-returnable. First-time customers ordering customized models are required to pay 33% in advance (at least 2 weeks prior to shipping, preferably by bank transfer), and the remaining 67% within 30 days of the ship date. Both payments are non-refundable.

Prices - International
Customers in Austria, China, The Czech and Slovak Republics, France, Germany, India, Japan, Korea, Russia, Switzerland, Taiwan and Turkey should contact their local representative for pricing. International prices will be somewhat higher than the USA/Canada pricing shown above, depending on local documentation requirements, customs and shipping procedures, and other regulatory issues (for example, the European WEEE directive).
Customers in other countries should contact our Canadian headquarters directly for pricing. Avtech can ship internationally by FedEx (preferred), UPS, DHL, or Bax Global.
