Operates at rates of 50b/s to 15MB/s for testing digital communications circuits

   The JDSU/Acterna/TTC Fireberd 4000 will simultaneously measure bit errors, code violations, frame errors, block errors, pattern slips, and performs signal analysis. RS-232 and MIL-188-114 interfaces are standard.


   The FIREBERD 4000 Communications Analyzer is a flexible, cost-effective instrument that tests digital circuits and equipment. Combining convenience and reliable performance, the FIREBERD 4000 is ideally suited for a wide variety of test applications.

   Operating at rates from 50 b/s to 15 Mb/s, the FIREBERD 4000 provides a high degree of flexibility for testing G.703, T-Carrier, and DDS circuits, evaluating equipment performance, or performing long-term or unattended testing. THe instrument features a range of standard data rates, plus the ability to operate at non-standard data rates when the optional frequency synthesize is installed.
