Programmable DDS Function Generators
Arbitrary/ Function Generators
B&K Precision’s 4080 series are versatile laboratory grade
synthesized function generators with a wide frequency range up to
120 MHz. Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) techniques are used to
generate stable, accurate output signals for all 27 built-in standard
and complex (arbitrary) waveforms. The generator produces high
purity, low distortion sine waves and provides a full suite of
analog modulation capabilities including AM, FM, FSK, PSK, pulse
modulation, burst mode and linear/logarithmic sweep combined
with multiple trigger modes.
Unmatched affordability and high performance make the 4080
series a perfect fit for many applications in Electronic Test and
Design, Sensor Simulation and Education and Training.

In addition to the built-in complex waveforms, you can use the
4084AWG & 4086AWG to generate custom arbitrary waveforms
with 10 bit vertical resolution, 16k memory depth and a sample rate
of 200 MSa/s. Increase your productivity with the included intuitive
Windows Software: Generate and edit waveforms and download
them to the instrument with a single click.
■ Clean and stable output of very small signals down to the
1 mV – 10 mV range (50 Ω)
■ Support of internal and external modulation sources as well as
internal, external and gated trigger sources

You can adjust parameters via knob or numeric keypad. Enter
amplitude values directly in Vpp, mVpp, Vrms, mVrms or dBm and
display the correct voltage by entering the actual output
configuration used (terminated with 50 Ohm or open circuit).
You can enter frequency in terms of frequency or seconds using
time values s, ms, Hz, kHz or MHz. Submenus are used for
modulation modes and other complex functions. The instrument
also provides 10 memories to store and recall instrument settings.
Additionally the current state is saved at power off and can be
restored at power up.

Power Supplies & DC Loads
Model 1550
Model 8540
Switching DC Power Supply
with USB Charger
150 W DC Electronic Load
Coming this winter
The model 1550 is a compact 108 watt power
supply delivering 1-36 V and 0-3 A from its main
isolated output. A unique feature of the 1550
supply is the USB 1.1 charging port located on
the front panel allowing the user to charge a cell
phone or MP3 player. Clean power and quiet
operation make this power supply ideal for any
bench in laboratories, work shops and schools
where bench space is limited.
The 8540 DC electronic load is a low-cost,
small form-factor instrument that is at home
on both the bench and the production floor.
Although this is an instrument in a small
package, it can reliably test a 5 volt power
supply to 30 amps and do it continuously.
■ Operates between 0-60 VDC, 1 mA-30 A
(150 W maximum)
■ Two current ranges: 3 A (1 mA resolution)
and 30 A (10 mA resolution)
■ Easy operation
■ USB 1.1 charging port
■ Bright, easy-to-read display
on front panel*
■ Rear panel security loop
■ Digitally controlled
■ Output On/Off control
■ CC/CV/CR operation
■ Large bright easy to read LCD display
■ Over-current protection from 10 mA to 30 A
■ Constant voltage and constant current operation
■ Short mode to simulate shorts
* USB 1.1 Charging port will not charge products compliant with USB 2.0 only
■ Save up to 400 instrument settings
Model 9110
8500, 8510, 8520 Series
Multi Range DC Power Supply
The 9110 is a new type of power supply.
Unlike conventional power supplies with fixed
output ratings, the 9110 automatically
recalculates voltage/current limits for each
setting. The 9110 provides 100W output power
in any Volt/Amp combination within the rated
voltage (60 V) and current (5 A) limits.
By providing greatly expanded choices of
Volt/Amp combinations, users can cut down
on the number of power supplies required and free up valuable
bench space.
