RF Explorer Signal Generator

RF Explorer Signal Generator

R 6,357.12



The RF Explorer Signal Generator (RFEGen) is a powerful, wideband fully programmable RF signal generator. It is the perfect companion for the Spectrum Analyzer RF Explorer product line.

As a standalone unit, RFEGen can generate CW and Sweep signals by selecting embedded menu options. When connected to a PC, it can be fully programmed with the RF Explorer for Windows software tool. 

Furthermore, the unit can work as a powerful Tracking Generator when used with RF Explorer Spectrum Analyzer connected to the same PC, offering full Scalar Network Analyzer (SNA) capabilities. The SNA feature allows full characterization of filters, amplifiers, and any 2-port RF device.


Hardware is final and fully calibrated, but RF Explorer for Windows Software and embedded Firmware are delivered BETA and are under development.
