A message from the President
It’s hard to imagine that B&K Precision has
been serving the electronics industry for
over 60 years now. From modest beginnings in a TV Repair shop in Chicago, to
today’s modern manufacturing facilities in
Taiwan, France and China; R&D and marketing offices in US, Israel and Romania; and
distributors in over 50 countries, B&K have
continued to innovate, strengthen, and expand our product offerings.
Today’s electronic engineers and students
may not recall the era of cathode ray tubes,
but our company started by making products to test, repair, and even rejuvenate
CRT’s, extending the life-span of TV sets.
With broad changes in technology over the
past 6 decades, we’ve continued to develop
diverse test and measurement solutions, including our oscilloscopes, LCR meters, DC &
AC power supplies, signal generators, and
DC electronic loads for solar and battery
testing, to name a few.
Many technical schools and universities
around the world use our instruments, particularly our function and arbitrary waveform
generators, multimeters and oscilloscopes,
to teach students about fundamental and
advanced electronics. Our commitment to
education has led us to the creation of a
program that rewards enterprising schools
and students with free test equipment.
As we look forward to the future with our
global team of dedicated employees, we are
committed to continuing our work of developing new, exciting and dependable test
equipment to serve your testing needs.
Sincerely,
Victor Tolan

Test modes for LED and other special applications
To address the growing LED market, the 9170/9180 series design incorporates special LED test modes which allow for efficient and safe electrical
tests of LED panels. Powering LEDs with conventional power supplies will potentially cause permanent damage of the UUT or limit its lifespan due
to excessive inrush current at power up and the non linear characteristics of the LED’s I-V curve. These power supplies feature three distinct
operating modes suitable for LED testing in a manufacturing or R&D environment and other special applications requiring a controlled rise time at
power up without generating any inrush current.
LED Mode
With LED mode active, inrush current will be eliminated or minimized to protect the UUT.
Inrush current
Example LED test setup
Output ON
LED mode OFF
Output ON
LED mode ON
Current flow during power up with LED mode enabled
Hot-swap Mode*
This mode is ideal for testing LED panels in
a mass production environment. Throughput
is significantly increased by eliminating the
need to turn the power supply on/off
between each test, while minimizing the
time interval of the surge current sufficiently
to protect the UUT. With the addition of a
handler interface, each UUT can be
“hot-swapped” to automatically connect to
the test station interface.
* Hot-swap mode (hardware option) and low current mode for
high voltage models 9184 and 9185 only.
Low Current Mode*
This unique function enables the power supply to minimize the voltage rise time in a controlled
manner. This mode is used when operating at a low current (< 1 A) and quick transitions from a
high-to-low or low-to-high voltage are needed.

Rated power
When selecting a DC load, it is important to
consider not only voltage and current
requirements, but also power ratings. The
power used when testing must fall within the
hashed region for the appropriate DC load.
Some applications may require high
voltage/low current and low voltage/high
current, which a single load may not be able
to handle. B&K Precision’s broad range of DC
loads will allow you to select the optimal
model for your requirements.
Input current
150 W DC Electronic Load
The 8540 DC electronic load is a compact,
economically priced instrument that can
reliably test a 5 V power supply to 30 A and
do it continuously.
The 8540’s performance is comparable to
most stand-alone bench DC loads, yet it does
the job at half the price and takes up half the
space on your bench.

six different modules ranging in power from
200 W to 600 W. Utilizing a modular, multichannel design, the electronic load provides
you with the flexibility to easily test a wide
range of power sources from multi-output
DC power supplies to batteries, fuel cells,
and photovoltaic arrays. The mainframe has
four slots and can be configured with any
assortment of the modules up to 2400 W (up
to 4800 W with mainframe extension).
Features & Benefits
Transient operation
Transient operation enables the module to
periodically switch between two load levels.
A power supply’s regulation and transient
characteristic can be evaluated by monitoring
the supply’s output voltage under varying
combinations of load levels, duty cycle, and
slew rate. The MDL Series can simulate these
conditions up to 25 kHz.
■ Power range up to 2400 W
■ Voltage range up to 500 V

Bandwidth:
Bandwidth is one of the most important
oscilloscope specifications as it represents
the range in which an oscilloscope can
display frequency accurately. It is defined
by the frequency response curve when the
attenuation is at the -3 dB mark. As a general
rule of thumb, the oscilloscope's bandwidth
should be at least five times the highest
frequency of the signal under test.
Delayed Time Base:
A feature in some analog oscilloscopes that
allows a single signal to be viewed at two
different time bases with the second time
base expanding a portion of the waveform
and starting at some point after the main time
base begins. This allows you to see events
that are not visible with the main time base
sweep.
Sampling Rate:
Specifies the rate at which a waveform or
signal is sampled. Sampling is the process of
converting a portion of the input signal into
a number of discrete electrical values for
the purpose of storage, display or further
processing. The unit of measure is samples
per second (Sa/s).

Function Generators
Common Features & Benefits
■ Sweep, gated, burst, and modulation
(AM/FM/FSK) capabilities standard
■ AWG provides built-in pulse, ramp,
triangle, noise, sinc, exponential, and
Gaussian noise waveforms. You can
utilize these waveforms to build your
own arbitrary waveform using the front
panel controls
■ Audio frequency sine waves have a
very low distortion level of -65 dBc
Model 4078
The 407x generators combine a full-featured
DDS function generator with an arbitrary
waveform generator (AWG). This gives the
user uncommon flexibility to generate any
waveform that can be described by a sampled
set of data within the generator's capabilities.
AWGs have revolutionized the generation of
stimulus signals by greatly reducing the need
to build special circuitry to generate custom
signals. This reduces costs enormously
because multiple design/build/debug steps
are avoided. Now, a user can write software
to generate the needed waveform shapes or
use the simple tools to graphically construct
special waveforms. With today's accelerated
development schedules, can you afford not to
take advantage of this powerful, enabling
technology?
■ Versatile noise generation: In Arb mode
you can conveniently add noise to your

Signal Generators
Function Generators
The model 4040A is an analog generator with
AM/FM modulation (internal or external),
linear/log sweep, and burst capability.
Includes a 5 digit 30 MHz frequency counter
with 30 mV sensitivity.
These analog function generators offer
familiar controls, stable output, and reliable
operation at budget-saving price points.
While DDS generators have eclipsed analog
generators at the high end, these analog
generators are the workhorses of industry,
education, and hobbyists. They are widely
used for characterizing and troubleshooting
electrical circuits.
Common Features & Benefits
■ Variable output: 10 Vpp into 50 Ω
(includes a 20 dB attenuator)
The model 4017A is a 10 MHz sweep
function generator with a 5 digit LED display,
linear/log sweep, variable duty cycle and DC
offset.
The model 4001A is an economy function
generator with the ability to provide linear
and logarithmic frequency sweeps -- a
feature usually not seen at this price point.
This feature is useful for the frequency
characterization of system behavior or the
discovery of resonances.
Models 4011A and 4012A are popular 5 MHz
generators for general bench and lab use with
an ideal mixture of features at a compelling
price. The 4012A is identical to the 4011A,
but with a sweep function added.
Model 4003A is similar to the 4001A, but
provides digital frequency setting and a
20 MHz frequency counter for external signals
with 100 mV sensitivity at a surprisingly low
price.
■ TTL/CMOS output
■ Adjustable DC offset
■ Sine/square/triangle/ramp/pulse outputs
Note: While only the 4040A offers FM modulation,
all units except the 4001A have a VCG (voltage
controlled generator) input that can simulate FM
modulation when driven by a modulating signal. In
addition, providing a ramp signal to this input can
effectively sweep the generator's output
frequency. On generators with sweep, the VCG
jack provides a DC signal proportional to the
instantaneous frequency, which can be useful for
driving XY plotters or scope displays.

Signal Generators
Pulse, Handheld, & RF Generators
20 Hz-150 kHz Sine/Square Wave Audio Generator
The model 3001 generates low-distortion sine waves at 46 discrete frequencies. Output
impedance is 600 Ω at the dual banana jacks and the output voltage is continuously
adjustable up to 1.2 V (RMS) into an open circuit. Output flatness is ±0.5 dB. A 5 Vpp square
wave is provided at separate banana jacks for synchronization. Frequency accuracy is 3% from
20 Hz to 100 kHz. The unit is powered by a 9 V battery.
10 MHz Pulse Generator with 4-digit
LED Display
The model 4030 pulse generator supplies
positive and negative 0.5-5 V pulses into 50 Ω
at up to 10 MHz pulse repetition frequency
(pulse periods from 100 ns to 100 ms). Pulse
widths are continuously variable between
50 ns and 50 ms and the pulses have rise
and fall times of 12 ns. A 4-digit frequency
counter and 8 crystal-controlled frequencies
let you use the generator for accurate
time-domain work. The generator can be
triggered from external signals.
10 MHz Handheld Sine & Square Wave Signal Generator
The 3003 generates up to 10 MHz sine (adjustable amplitude from 0 to
4.5 Vpp, no load) and TTL square waves using DDS technology in steps of
0.1 Hz. Output frequency accuracy is 0.02%. The sine and square waves
are available simultaneously from separate BNC female connectors. A 9 V
battery supplies power or an external 6-9 VDC adapter can be used.
The output frequency is adjusted by push buttons that increment or
decrement each digit. The unit is smaller than a typical paperback book
and is about 2 inches (50 mm) thick, making it a small, portable package.
Battery operation is useful to avoid ground loops and common mode
voltages.
150 MHz RF Signal Generator
Applications
■ Interfacing different logic families
■ Providing clock signals for digital design
The 2005B supplies sine wave outputs from 100 kHz to 150 MHz (harmonics usable to 450 MHz)
at up to 100 mV (RMS). The output can be amplitude modulated with an internal 1 kHz signal or
with an external audio signal up to 1 V (RMS). An external crystal can be plugged in for precise
frequency control. The output is provided via a BNC female connector.

Channel Power Measurement
Electric Field Strength Measurement
Easy Operation
Allows you to measure the total power or
noise power in a user-specified bandwidth.
A dipole antenna (options M401 – M406)
connected to the RF input enables the
measurement of electric field strength.
Users can choose from 6 antennas based on
the frequency range under investigation.
The 2650A series are straightforward to
operate and provide many functions to
facilitate quick and easy measurements:
Adjacent Channel Power
Measure the ratio of power leakage (from the
wanted signal) into adjacent channels. Center
frequency, adjacent channel
bandwidth, and offset between main carrier
and adjacent channels can be set.
Combined with the MAX HOLD function and
a 10 ms sweep time, the M404 dipole antenna
is capable of measuring the electric field
strength of Bluetooth systems and systems
using direct sequence spread spectrum/
frequency hopping modulation techniques.
■ Smart one button “Auto Tune" function
which automatically scans the full
frequency range, detects and centers the
maximum signal, and configures
optimum values for RBW, VBW, sweep
time and reference level
■ Input attenuator and internal preamp are
set automatically to optimal values
■ 200 setups and reference spectrum
measurements can be stored and recalled
from either internal memory or USB flash
drive
PC Software for Simple and Flexible
Documentation of your Measurements
Marker Function
Two different modes are available for marker
measurements:
■ Normal marker mode measures the
frequency and level of the marked point
■ Delta marker mode measures the
frequency and level differences between
the two markers (see image below)
Magnetic Field Strength Measurement
Using a magnetic field probe (option PR 26M),
the 2650A series is capable of accurately
measuring the magnetic field distribution on
a PCB (printed circuit board) or IC
(integrated circuit) over a wide frequency
range of 10 MHz to 3 GHz. Since the probe’s
compensation data is already preloaded into
the analyzer, the magnetic field strength is
displayed directly in dBµA/m.
The 2650A series includes easy-to-use
software for documentation and further
analysis of your measurements. Connect
the analyzer via USB cable to your PC,
configure the analyzer remotely, then
download measurement data and
instrument settings for storage and further
analysis.
■ Continuously sweep and transfer trace
data to the PC
■ Capture 1001 trace data points (twice the

Component Testers
Selection Guide
B&K Precision offers a wide range of component testers that can measure and identify values of capacitors, resistors, inductors, diodes, ICs, and
transistors. Major applications are component sorting or circuit troubleshooting.
LCR Meters are versatile instruments as they can measure most common passive components used in electronic circuitry. Capacitance meters on the
other hand are dedicated to testing capacitors only, and typically offer a wider capacitance measurement range. Our transistor testers and meters
that measure ESR can be invaluable tools when testing and troubleshooting components “in-circuit”, while logic probes are always used in-circuit. IC
Testers are used to identify and test certain analog and digital ICs.

Capacitance Meters & Transistor Testers
Dual Display Handheld Capacitance Meters
The 830C and 890C are 11,000-count
handheld capacitance meters that measure
capacitance up to 200 mF and 50 mF
respectively. Straightforward to operate,
these meters make measurements quickly
and simplify the capacitance sorting process.
Unlike other handheld instruments such as
LCR meters that make measurements using
an AC signal with a specific test frequency,
these meters measure capacitance by
applying a constant current that briefly
charges, then discharges the connected
capacitor. The compare mode which supports
25 sets of High/Low limits, provides a convenient means to sort capacitors without
needing to set up the meter each time. Data
logging, Hold/Min/Max Average recording,
tolerance, and relative mode features offer
additional component troubleshooting tools.
Model 810C
The 810C is a compact manual ranging
capacitance meter, designed for accurate
cost-effective measurement of capacitive
components. It features fused direct-plug-in

In-Circuit ESR & DCR Capacitor Tester
Component Tester
The 570A interfaces with analog ICs and the
575A with digital ICs. Both versions emulate
passive circuitry around the IC under test to
ensure that a comprehensive test takes place.
High integrity verification offers guaranteed
levels of reliability in the results. Conditional
and unconditional loop testing modes ensure
that intermittent and/or temperature related
faults are detected. The units automatically
sense the functionality of the device to
be tested and display a list of possible
equivalents for replacement. Unmarked
and house-coded ICs can be identified and
tested.
The 881 is a portable In-Circuit ESR Meter
that measures the equivalent series
resistance of electrolytic capacitors in or out
of circuit and can also be used to measure
low value non-inductive resistors. In-circuit
measurements are dependent on the circuit
design of the capacitor being measured.
The 815 is a handy meter measuring
capacitance up to 20 mF and resistance up
to 20M Ω and can also test transistors,
diodes, SCRs, LEDs, and batteries.

industrial motors, transformers, electrical
wiring, and cable insulation. Low readings
may point to insulation deterioration that
can indicate impending failure. Early
detection permits replacement during routine
maintenance rather than risking production
downtime. Insulation testers are also useful
for safety testing of TV sets and appliances
to assure that no hazardous leakage current
is present.

Digital Earth Resistance Meter
Digital Milli-ohm Meter
True RMS AC/DC Power Clamp Meter
The 309 digital earth resistance meter (also
known as an earth ground meter) is a small,
compact, battery-powered, professional
meter that is easy-to-use and invaluable
to electricians and contractors who need
to ensure the "ground" quality and
effectiveness of buildings, structures,
equipment or electrical systems. A good
earth ground is required for new buildings
or structures needing to pass required
electrical codes. Older buildings can lose a
good effective earth ground connection over
time or after being struck by lightning.
The 310 digital milli-ohm meter is used to
ensure continuity and integrity of a wire,
cable, conduit, or any electrical connection.
The 310 has a display resolution of 100 µΩ
and include a professional 4-wire Kelvin test
lead set to ensure accurate readings. The
heavy duty case comes with a convenient
shoulder strap and has a rubber seal to make
the unit water resistant.
The 325 AC/DC true RMS power clamp
meter provides safe, non-invasive measurements of up to 400 kW, 400 A AC, and measures up to 600 V AC/DC utilizing the pair of
standard test leads. The lightweight,
portable, battery-powered clamp meter
measures parameters needed to
troubleshoot residential and small
commercial electrical systems such as ACV,
DCV, ACA, DCA, Ω, W, frequency and
continuity.

At B&K Precision, we’re
committed to providing
excellent product support
and customer service to
both current and future
users of our products, and
strive to continuously
improve our operations.
We’re regularly upgrading
our existing capabilities
and services, and adding
new methods of support to
meet the changing needs
of our valued customers.
Technical support
To help our customers determine quickly and
efficiently which instruments best fit their
application and budget, we provide
comprehensive and growing resources on our
website such as: data sheets, user manuals,
high resolution product images, selection
guides and tools, software, videos,
application notes, product guides, and
“where to buy” information. If you can’t find
the information you are looking for using our
website, you can call us and talk to an
experienced engineer with in-depth
knowledge of our products who will be able
to discuss your application and requirements.
If you need help with an instrument you’ve
already purchased, we are here to assist you
with product setup, usage or
troubleshooting. You can find additional
support by browsing our knowledge base
or you can contact us directly via email or
phone, which are answered in a timely
manner by a qualified engineer.
Calibration and repair
Every new B&K Precision instrument comes
standard with a 1, 2, or 3-year warranty
against defects from the original date of
purchase. Our warranties are valid worldwide,
and we provide service and support through
our global network of partner companies and
dedicated service centers to guarantee your
satisfaction.
The following calibration and repair options
are currently available: NIST traceable
calibration with or without data, warranty
repair with a guaranteed turnaround time of
10 business days (excluding shipping time
to/from B&K Precision, Yorba Linda, CA, USA),
reasonably priced out-of-warranty instrument
repair with fixed prices, and pre-paid
calibration packages.
We make every attempt to support our
customers even long after a product has been
discontinued. Our goal is to service and
repair B&K products up to 7 years after their
obsolescence date, provided spare parts are
still available. In many cases, we provide user
manuals, calibration procedures, spare parts
and schematics for selected discontinued
products well beyond the 7-year period.
