New Releases...B&K Precision Corp.
B&K Precision Corp. has announced the addition of the Model 1856C to its expanding line of cost-effective instruments. Capable of frequency measurements from 5Hz to 2.4GHz, this compact, versatile, highly reliable counter is ideal for a broad spectrum of laboratory and service applications. This tool is used for counting frequencies and for totaling measurements.
The Model 1856C features a special input for use in high frequency VHF/UHF/microwave/cellular telephone systems, as well as a standard input for frequency measurements of up to 100MHz. The counter utilizes an eight-digit display, which provides frequency measurements from 10Hz resolution to 2.4GHz, 1Hz resolution to 100MHz, and 0.1Hz resolution to 10MHz. In Period Mode, the unit measures the period required in microseconds for one cycle, over the range of 5Hz to 3.5MHz. Totalize Mode permits counting of individual events. The counting process can be gated, either manually by a front panel switch, or by a gating signal applied to a rear panel jack for more exact electronic control. Front panel push-button switches select the Operating Mode and one of four decades of resolution. B&K Precision Corp., Placentia, CA, (714) 237-9220, www.bkprecision.com.
