Signal Generator Overview (1510A)

The 1510A Precision Portable Signal Generator is a must-have for engineers and technicians working in a variety of fields – from routine troubleshooting and maintenance, to calibrating and tuning advanced equipment such as eddy current probes, strain gauge amplifiers, charge amplifiers for gas turbine vibration analysis, or even medical equipment. Don Welch walks through the device and its capabilities in simulating precise signals in multiple wave forms including sinusoidal, triangle, square, and sawtooth where the frequency and amplitude can be varied as needed.

Video Summary

Keeping your test and measurement equipment operating accurately is critical to the efficient operation of your systems/engines.  Whether on your test bench or out in the field/shop floor, the MTI Instruments 1510A Portable Signal Generator is the ideal tool to validate the function of your equipment and calibrate it if needed.

This video introduces the capabilities precision signal generator highlighting its voltage and charge outputs and various waveform signals it is capable of producing.  The device is commonly used in aviation/aerospace, motor vehicle testing and maintenance, power generation, manufacturing equipment and medical devices.

The 1510A Portable Signal Generator can produce the following waveforms customized to appropriate frequencies and amplitude across two channels to simulate required source signals your equipment is likely to encounter:

  • Sine waves
  • Square
  • Sawtooth
  • Triangle waves
