Berkeley Nucleonics (BNC) has unveiled the Model 1105 universal counter, incorporating 40ps of time interval resolution along with 12 digits of frequency resolution.
Model 1105 also offers built-in statistics and maths functions for use when analysing display mean, min/max, delta and standard deviations.
Scale and offset can be easily used to compensate for systematic occurrences seen in some experiments.
Mark Slattery, a BNC applications engineer, works to accurately control impact velocity tests conducted in a large, vacuum-controlled impact chamber supported by time interval counters, oscilloscopes, digital recorders, and pulse power supplies.
Incorporating the Model 1105 into this test setup supports continuing development of shock wave metrology.
The Model 1105 features rise/fall time, period, phase, event counts, voltage peak measurement, easy LAN control using Ethernet IP with comprehensive GUI, and free software using widely accepted SCPI commands.
