Signal Generators & Analysers

Our high-quality range of signal generators includes numerous types of test equipment and accessories.


To supply accurate and reliable signal generation hardware and accessories, we work with advanced tech brands like Rohde & Schwarz, Tektronix, BK Precision, Keysight Technologies, and Metrix, complementing the enhanced value signal generator and analysis products in our own RS PRO line.


What are signal generators used for, and what types are available?


There are many different kinds of signal generators and analysers for sale on today’s market, including:



  • Frequency Counters: Used for measuring frequency in a number of oscillations/pulses per second for a periodic electronic signal.


    • Typical test subjects include transmitter carriers, oscillators in a circuit, signals on a line, or any component through which the frequency of a steady repetitive signal can be tracked




  • Waveform Generators & Accessories:

  • Used to inject waveforms into a DUT (device under test) for tracking/analysis testing.

    • Arbitrary waveform generators (AWGs) can generate a broad range of arbitrarily defined signals, unlike function generators

    • Common accessories include various options for memory and bandwidth upgrades




  • Pulse Generators: Used to inject pulse signals (digital, analogue or both) into DUTs.


    • Some pulse generators also function as digital delay generators and can be used as a stimulus or clock signal to drive lasers, modulators, optical components and more




  • Spectrum Analysers & Accessories: Used for analysing the spectrum of radio frequency (RF) kit and audio signals to test and diagnose circuit performance.



  • Function Generators & Counters



  • TV & Video Test Equipment


Whatever the specific generator or analyser type you require for your workplace testing and development tasks, all signal generators are essentially designed to produce various electrical signals in the form of waves.


These waveforms are then used as direct stimuli for other items of equipment, including many different types of radio hardware, logic boards, and other electronic/electroacoustic devices that can be fed with particular waveforms during testing or troubleshooting processes.
