Test Equipment Solutions Datasheet
Test Equipment Solutions Ltd specialise in the second user sale, rental and distribution of
quality test & measurement (T&M) equipment. We stock all major equipment types such as
spectrum analyzers, signal generators, oscilloscopes, power meters, logic analysers etc from
all the major suppliers such as Agilent, Tektronix, Anritsu and Rohde & Schwarz.
We are focused at the professional end of the marketplace, primarily working with customers
for whom high performance, quality and service are key, whilst realising the cost savings that
second user equipment offers. As such, we fully test & refurbish equipment in our in-house,
traceable Lab. Items are supplied with manuals, accessories and typically a full no-quibble 2
year warranty. Our staff have extensive backgrounds in T&M, totalling over 150 years of
combined experience, which enables us to deliver industry-leading service and support. We
endeavour to be customer focused in every way right down to the detail, such as offering free
delivery on sales, covering the cost of warranty returns BOTH ways (plus supplying a loan
unit, if available) and supplying a free business tool with every order.
As well as the headline benefit of cost saving, second user offers shorter lead times, higher
reliability and multivendor solutions. Rental, of course, is ideal for shorter term needs and
offers fast delivery, flexibility, try-before-you-buy, zero capital expenditure, lower risk and off
balance sheet accounting. Both second user and rental improve the key business measure of
Return On Capital Employed.
We are based near Heathrow Airport in the UK from where we supply test equipment
worldwide. Our facility incorporates Sales, Support, Admin, Logistics and our own in-house
All products supplied by Test Equipment Solutions include:
- No-quibble parts & labour warranty (we provide transport for UK mainland addresses).
- Free loan equipment during warranty repair, if available.
- Full electrical, mechanical and safety refurbishment in our in-house Lab.
- Certificate of Conformance (calibration available on request).
- Manuals and accessories required for normal operation.
- Free insured delivery to your UK mainland address (sales).
- Support from our team of seasoned Test & Measurement engineers.
- ISO9001 quality assurance.

This series of linear-regulated
80-100 W DC power supplies is
designed to maximize the throughput
of DUTs through the manufacturing
test process. Both programming
and measurement are optimized for
speed. The active downprogrammer
can sink up to the full rated current
of the power supply, which quickly
brings the power supply output to
zero volts. The 6630B Series offers
many advanced programmable
features including stored states
and status reporting. Programming
is done using industry standard
SCPI commands via the GPIB or
RS-232. Test system integration is
further simplified by using the
VXIPlug&Play drivers. The optional
relays simplify system design and

Load regulation
The optional front panel binding
posts make the 6630B Series
convenient on the R&D lab bench.
The built-in microamp measurement
system helps the engineer to easily
and accurately monitor the output
voltage and current without a
complicated test setup.
Line regulation
Transient response time Less than 100 µs (50 µs in the fast mode) for the output voltage to recover to its previous
level (within 0.1% of the voltage rating of the supply or 20 mV) following any step change in load current of up to 50%
of the output current rating of the supply.
