Cloning a Pulse Generator
A unique feature of the Quantum Composers’ pulse generators is the ability to clone the settings of one unit onto a second unit. Cloning the settings reduces the amount of time spent setting up a recently purchased unit or even a loaner unit if your unit needs to be returned for calibration.
Programming with the Comm Terminal
The Communications Terminal program is a convenient way to remotely interface with Quantum Composers pulse generators and is provided with every pulse generator. This tech guide will give instructions on how to install, configure, and program the comm terminal software.
Pulse Generator Width and Delay
Quantum Composers pulse generators can provide an array of output pulse trains with precise timing and unparalleled flexibility. Each channel can provide independent width and delay control within some restrictions. This technical document explains the restrictions on width and delay and how those settings affect the channel output.
Delay Generator Multiplexing
One of the more unique features of the Quantum Composer pulse generators is the ability to combine the timing of any or all channels together and output them out of any of the output BNCs. The multiplexing function (MUX) can be set through remote communications via a computer or from the front panel of most units.
Pulse Generator Channel Modes
Quantum Composers pulse generators have two levels of mode selection: system modes and channel modes. Combining these two modes together allows for complex pulse trains to be generated by one unit. Most Quantum Composers pulse generators contain both system and channel mode settings to provide the most
comprehensive pulse generation solution available.
9730 Current Generator Parallel Configuration
The 9732 Series Current Generator allows for the outputs on Channels A & B to be wired together in a parallel configuration; thus, potentially allowing for current levels up to 12 Amps through the load. This can be
accomplished ONLY with the implementation of 2 external blocking diodes. When operating in this mode, the limitations on each channel remain constant; although, the current settings will now be additive through the load. The user may also incorporate a “piece-wise” current waveform by properly altering the pulse widths and delays.
