Product Details

Great Features

The U6200A comes packed with great features that include Frequency & Ratio (11 Digits/Sec.), Period (2.5 ns to 1000s), Time interval, Pulse Width, Duty Cycle, Peak Volts (100 Hz~300 MHz), Rise/Fall Time, Totalize, Phase, Temperature Stability (< 1 PPM), Aging Rate (< 2 PPM per year), a timebase reference channel and complete Front-End Isolation. It comes with 20, easily accessible, memory locations that store most frequently used functions for convenient operation.

Full Maths Functions & Easy Operation Panel

The U6200A from PicoTest offers a wide array of mathematical and statistical functions that allow you to make measurements and simultaneously perform other functions like measure and report min/max, delta, mean and standard deviation. You can also use scale and offset functions to provide compensation as required by applications. This counter allows you to use the numerical keypad to define settings for carrying out measurements.

Fast Measurement & Special Application

You can take advantage of the digital signal processing technology provided by U6200A to analyze data and obtain new readings, simultaneously, to carry out speedy measurements. You can also use the Limit Modes feature that allows you to set the range of measurements. This counter can continue to measure or stop measuring if the limit is exceeded and generate an output signal accordingly to trigger devices connected to it.

Free Software & Familiar SCPI Commands

The U6200A can be connected to a PC with the provided USB interface and can collect data using the Microsoft Excel software. It can also be connected to the computer using the LAN interface and accessing the web-based control software.

Measurement of Cable Dielectric Constant Using the U6200A Frequency Counter.

This video demonstrates how to calculate the dielectric constant of a length of cable using the U6200A Frequency Counter. The counter is used to measure the time delay of a test signal passing through the cable under test. The dielectric constant can then be calculated. This procedure is more economical than using a Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR) and the resulting value calculated is of similar accuracy.

Demonstrating the Accuracy of the U6200A Frequency Counter

This video uses a calibrated accurate Tektronix AFG3102 Arbitrary Waveform Generator to demonstrate the accuracy of both low and high frequency signals being measured by the U6200A Frequency Counter.
