Noise Generators and NPR Tests

Applied Instruments noise generators and NPRT (Noise Power Ratio Test Set) tests are easy to use and offer high-quality design at a great price. They are used to test signals for measuring noise figure, frequency response, intermodulation distortion (IMD), and other parameters. The test looks for and measures the quietness of an unused channel in a multi-channel system. Sound like what you're looking for? Come shop with us today!

NPRT 2200 Return Path Noise Power Ratio Test Set 

The NPRT 2200 Return Path Noise Power Ratio Test Set measures the NPR of a device across a range of power levels. This test quantifies intermodulation distortion (IMD) and determines the dynamic range of optical transmitters, amplifiers, and other active HFC network devices. 

NS-1 Handheld Broadband Noise Generator

The NS-1 Handheld Broadband Noise Generator generates an analog signal at a low power additive white Gaussian noise, a wide band from 1MHz up to 2150MHz, and is flat within 5dB across the band. The total RF power across the band is fixed at 42 dBmV ± 1dB. The NS-1 is popular for testing network components and aligning a building's coaxial cable network. 

NS-3 RF Noise Source

The NS-3 RF Noise Source for Bench and ATE Test Applications is an older sister of the NS-1. She provides higher power and more flexibility output compared to her little sister, NS-1. The NS-3 generates a wide-band AWGN (Additive White Gaussian Noise) analog signal from 5MHz up to 2150 MHz and the flatness is within 5dB across the band. The total output power across the band is 52dBmV ± 1dB and level adjusts in 0.1 dB steps over a 30 dB range.
