SECTION 2

OPERATION

2.1 INTRODUCTION

This section describes the basic operation of the Model FMB3002. It includes the proper power requirements, the recommended turn-on procedure and a detailed explanation of all operating controls, modes of operation and special optional features.

2.2 POWER REQUIREMENTS

The Model FMB3002 is designed to operate from a single phase, 50-60Hz, ac power source of 105-132, 210-264 volts (FMB3002AC), from an external +/-10V to 15V dc bipolar power source (FMB3002DC), and from ±9V batteries

(high energy recommended). A rear panel line switch for selecting power line voltage to 120V or 240V is provided. A

1/8A slow blow fuse is internal and can only be changed by removing the top cover (please remove the power line from the unit before changing the fuse).

For DC battery operation, unplug the FMB3002 from the ac line. The FMB3002 will automatically switch to DC battery operation when batteries have been installed in the unit and the power switch is turned to the ON position.

2.3 TURN-ON PROCEDURE

2.3.1. AC Operation (FMB3002AC)

Set the line switch for the correct voltage range. For 120 volts, set the voltage range to the 120V position. For 220V operation, set the voltage range switch to the 240V.

The FMB3002AC is provided with an AC receptacle for AC line operation.

Make sure the POWER switch is in the OFF position.

Plug the line cord into the unit and into an ac outlet.

WARNING!

The chassis of this instrument is connected to ground. For safety purposes, connect the line cord to a grounded, 3 terminal ac outlet.

Turn the POWER switch ON.

CAUTION!

Because of the potentially dangerous voltages that exist within the unit, the cover of this instrument should not be removed when the instrument is connected to an ac power source.

2.3.2. DC Operation (FMB3002DC)

The FMB3002DC is not provided with an AC receptacle for power but is provided with a 3-terminal block connector for connecting the +11 to +15V, -11V to -15V and ground to an external dc bipolar power supply.

To get the maximum output performance, the external supply must be a ±15V. The output performance will be reduced as explained in the Input and Output Amplifier sections of Section 1.

Figure 2.6

– DC Offset Adjustment Locations

2.7.3.1 Single-Ended Input

For units with single-ended input and fixed gain, do the following:

1. Short the input BNC to ground of the channel of interest.

2. Connect a DVM set to DC mV scale to the output BNC of the same channel.

3. Adjust the OUTPUT DC Offset Adjust for 0mV.

For units with only input G1 and/or G2 gain option.

1. Short the input BNC to ground of the channel of interest.

2. Connect a DVM set to DC mV scale to the output BNC of the same channel.

3. Set the Input Gain to minimum and the Output Gain to maximum.

4. Adjust the OUTPUT DC Offset Adjust for 0mV. If the adjustment runs out of range, adjust the INPUT DC

Offset Adjust for 0mV.

5. Set the Input Gain to maximum and the Output Gain to minimum.

6. Adjust the INPUT DC Offset Adjust for 0mV.

7. Repeat 3 to 7 for fine adjustment.

For units with only output gain, do the following:

2.7.3.2 Differential Input

1. Short the both input BNC connectors to ground of the channel of interest.

2. Connect a DVM set to mV scale to the output BNC of the same channel.

12

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Section 2 – Operation

2.7.4 Option G1 and G2 Front Panel Input (G1) and Output (G2) Gain Switches

The FMB3002 has an optional input and output gain switch for each channel. The input gain is selectable in 10dB steps from 0dB to 40dB. The output gain is selectable in 2dB steps from 0dB to 16dB with a final setting of 20dB. This will give a total gain of 60dB.

Custom switch selectable gains are also available for the input and output.

Example of possible 3F module part number with gain options:

1. 3FS8TL-20k-EG1

This is a single-ended input, 8-pole, Butterworth, low-pass with a 20kHz cutoff and External Input Resistor Gain

Control.

2. 3FD4SL-1k-EG2

This is a differential input, 4-pole, Bessel, low-pass with a 1kHz cutoff and External Output Resistor Gain Control.

3. 3FD16TH-5-EG1/EG2

This is a differential input, 16-pole, Butterworth, high-pass with a 5Hz cutoff and External Input and Output

Resistor Gain Control.

2.7.5 SE and DIFF Options

The FMB3002 must be specified with an SE or DIFF when a 3F Filter Module is installed with the EG1 and/or EG2 options in order for the gain switches provided (G1 and/or G2 option) to operate correctly. If the FMB3002 has not been specified with the SE or DIFF option, and 3F Modules are installed with the EG1 and/or EG2 options, the gain values will not be correct as indicated on the front panel.
