QT-100A

Four Channel Test tone generator with channel ID marking.

Front

Back

QT100-A End confusion over where each channel is being routed. Each channel has a unique marker that will allow you to distinguish it from any other. The marker can be turned off for a solid tone and the tone can be turned off for silence.

Front panel switches allows complete control:

bullet

Select one of three preset frequencies. Default frequencies are 1000 Hz, 400 Hz, and 250 Hz. 

bullet

Select one of three preset amplitudes. Default amplitudes are 8 dBu, 4 dBu, and 0 dBu.

bullet

Select Continuous Tone, Tone OFF, and Tone With Marking. Default marking is equal intervals of  Silence and Tone each 133 ms long with repetition based on channel number. The sequence is repeated every 5 seconds.

bullet

Select Internal or External tone source. 

bullet

Standard full size XLR audio connectors. No special adaptors needed. 

Flexibility:

bullet

External audio input allows you to use your own special tone or audio. Markers can be added to the external audio signal.

bullet

Convenient 600 Ohm balanced input and output.

bullet

Internal frequencies are digitally synthesized and crystal regulated.

bullet

Amplitudes are controlled with a digital potentiometer. No wiper or switch noise.

bullet

Handy Front Panel LED indicates when markers are being sent. 

bullet

Compact low-voltage design can be easily used with mobile equipment. 

Optional Remote Control Software:  

Windows based software package allows full remote control and customization of the QT-100A. 

bullet

Override and emulate all four of the front panel functions including selecting the external input. 

bullet

Select more frequencies than the front panel allows. Programmable frequency selection range is 45 Hz to 7812 KHz.

bullet

Select more amplitudes than the front panel allows. Programmable amplitude selection range selection is 8 dBu to minus infinity (100 steps).

bullet

Program different frequencies and amplitudes into the front panel switches. 

bullet

Program different marker spacing and repeat rates. Marking period can be adjusted from 33 ms to 8 seconds. Repeat rates can be adjusted from 330 ms to 16 seconds plus 8x the marking period.

bullet

Any changes made to the control settings are retained indefinitely by saving them to EEPROM memory.

QT100A Specifications:

bullet

Tone: Single internal audio tone is created from a crystal controlled square wave filtered with an 8 pole Bessel digital filter sampled at 64 times the fundamental frequency. The third harmonic is attenuated more than 60 dB. Switch selectable frequencies are 1000, 400, and 250 Hz.

bullet

Amplitude: Maximum usable amplitude internal or external is 8 dBu. Switch selection for internal tone of 8, 4 and 0 dBu. 

bullet

Marking: Marking is 133ms OFF separated by 133ms ON, repeated times the channel number. Sequence is repeated every five seconds. Switch selection is Tone, OFF, Mark. An LED indicates when marking is being inserted.

bullet

External Audio/Internal Tones: Select from either internal tones or user provided external audio. Both modes allow marker to be added.

bullet

Input/Output: External Input: balanced 600 Ohm. Output balanced 50 Ohm.

bullet

Universal Serial Bus (USB) Interface: Standard USB-B interface. For connection to PC and optional customizing program. Interface is USB 1.0 compliant

bullet

Input Current: 200ma Maximum. 

bullet

Input Voltage: 12VDC or 9VAC to 12VAC 50/60Hz. Connector 2.1mm X 5.5mm X 11mm (inner x outer diameter x Length)

bullet

Input power adapter: 120VAC converter to 12VDC @ 200 ma. 

bullet

Temperature: 0 deg C to 50 deg C (32 F to 125 F) non condensing

bullet

Size L X W X H:  185mm x 107mm x 60mm (7.25in x 4.22in x 2.4in). Handsome black anodized aluminum box with yellow text that won't rub off.

bullet

Warranty: 90 days to cover normal operation, defects in materials, and workmanship.

 

Optional Software Specifications:

bullet

Complete computer remote operation of the QT100A through an USB interface.

bullet

USB drivers are included.

bullet

Selection of one of five preset frequencies, Default: 60, 250, 400, 1000, and 2000 Hz

bullet

Selection of one of five preset Amplitudes. Default: -10, 0, 2, 4, and 8 dBu

bullet

Select TONE, OFF, MARK, and SWEEP modes

bullet

Select Internal or External tone source. 

bullet

Sweep mode injects frequency sweep from 180 Hz to 7.8 KHz. The sweep repeats every 8.3 seconds and represents 256 distinct tones, each 33 ms long.

bullet

Calibrate/change any of the preset frequencies. Range: 45 Hz to 7812 Hz

bullet

Calibrate/change any of the preset amplitudes. Range:  – 32 dBu to 8 dBu in 99 steps

bullet

Modify the marker repeat rate from 0.067 to 16.8 seconds.

bullet

Modify the marker chirp size and spacing from 0.033 to 8.3 seconds.

bullet

Restore factory default settings or last saved calibration settings.

bullet

Save any changes/calibrations so that the QT100A can be operated with the new power-on settings without the support program.
