See the Communication Settings in Chapter 15, on how to configure each of these methods.

ScreenElementDescription.png Invert Gain Command The gain of an Amplifier Research amplifier can be remotely configured. However for some Amplifier Research amplifiers the "G0000" command to set the gain is used to select the maximum gain, while for other Amplifier Research amplifiers, the "G0000" command is used to select the minimum gain. It cannot be determined for a specific Amplifier Research amplifier, which gain setting should be used for a maximum gain. The 'Invert Gain Command' checkbox can however be used to use inverted gain logic to select the maximum gain. If it is observed that the amplifier is using minimum gain, then toggle the checkbox to send the opposite gain command to select the maximum gain for this amplifier.


ConfigurableFrequencyRangeTab.png

The frequency range of the Amplifier Research 200T1G3 as provided by the manufacturer is shown and selected as default. It is possible to overrule these frequencies and to manual adjust the allowed frequency range of the Amplifier Research 200T1G3.

ScreenElementDescription.png Use default start frequency If the checkbox is checked, the default start frequency will be used as the lowest usable frequency in a test for this device.
ScreenElementDescription.png Custom start frequency If the Use default start frequency checkbox is unchecked, another start frequency (expressed in MHz) can be specified. The customized start frequency will then be used as the lowest usable frequency in a test for this device. The customized frequency can be a limitation or an extension of the default start frequency.
ScreenElementDescription.png Use default stop frequency If the checkbox is checked, the default stop frequency will be used as the highest usable frequency in a test for this device.
ScreenElementDescription.png Custom stop frequency If the Use default stop frequency checkbox is unchecked, another stop frequency (expressed in MHz) can be specified. The customized stop frequency will then be used as the highest usable frequency in a test for this device. The customized frequency can be a limitation or an extension of the default stop frequency.


Be careful changing these setting as RadiMation® is no longer able to verify if the Amplifier Research 200T1G3 is used outside frequency range that is specified by the manufacturer. This may result to serious damage of your measurement device.
