RF Signal Generators

Saelig Co. (Fairport, NY) announced Rigol DSG800 RF signal generators with output frequencies from 9 kHz to 3.0 GHz. They provide an RF signal source with a maximum output of +20 dBm and frequency resolution of 0.01 Hz at any frequency. Featuring SSB noise of -115 dBc/Hz, they feature a stable internal clock for creating RF test signals. The instruments provide conventional sweep functions (step, list, logarithmic, and linear) as well as analog modulation functions including amplitude modulation, frequency modulation, phase modulation, and pulse modulation. They also offer an optional pulse train generation capability for translating serial data onto an RF link without additional hardware. The pulse train can be used as the modulating signal of pulse modulation, and can also be output as an independent pulse generator.

Product of the Month: March 2016

Paul N. Gardner Co., Pompano Beach, FL, announced the SmarTest coating thickness measurement system that consists of an app and a wireless sensor for measuring coating thickness with the help of a smartphone or tablet. The system uses Sensor-integrated Digital Signal Processing (SIDSP®) sensors combined with wireless technology to measure coating thickness. The digitally generated readings on the sensor are relayed by Bluetooth to a smartphone or tablet. The SmarTest App functions as an evaluation device, replacing a conventional coating thickness gauge. The app displays current measuring value, statistical evaluation, storage of measuring values in files, 2-point calibration, measuring unit metric/imperial switchover, and export of the series of measurement in the CSV format. All the functionalities of a smartphone are available for data transfer. The sensor can function for up to 8 hours in continuous operation, and the dual Bluetooth module ensures a long operating time in modern devices. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/61059-120

Radiation Hard Lens for Color Sensors

The new Model 346 non-browning lens from Resolve Optics Ltd. (Chesham, UK) has been designed to operate with color sensors in areas subject to radiation. For any camera lens to survive even quite low levels of radiation, without degradation, they should be produced from non-browning ceriumdoped glass. Unfortunately most non-browning glasses are yellow tinted, which gives color images acquired by CMOS cameras a yellow appearance.

High-Speed Infrared Cameras

FLIR Systems (Wilsonville, OR) has added the FLIR RS8300 to its RS-Series of long-range infrared camera systems. The new FLIR RS8300 couples a proprietary highspeed HD MWIR detector with a 10x continuous zoom lens in a sealed, ruggedized enclosure. The FLIR RS8300 delivers infrared imagery at up to 200 megapixels per second. Four active preset operating modes provide adjustable integration times, embedded non-uniformity correction, bad pixel replacement, and window size adjustments.
