Rigol DG4162 Waveform Generator


Quick Overview:

As Rigol's newest waveform generator, the DG4000 series is part of a new family of fast, easy-to-use, ultra-modern testing instruments. DG4000 is a multifunctional generator that helps accomplish a range of testing by combining many functions into one instrument. Functions include Function Generation, Arbitrary Waveform Generation, Pulse Generation, Harmonic Generation, and Analog/Digital Modulation and Counting. The DG4000 utilizes Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS) technology, which delivers stable, precise, low distortion signals. The sleek new design features a high resolution 7” display screen, while user-friendly interface design and panel layout improves efficiency.


Product Description:

The Rigol DG4162 is two channel function / arbitary waveform generator to create high quality signals up to 160 MHz (Sine). Beside the analog output the devices include a USB-Host- and a USB-device and a LAN interface.

The Rigol Function-generators have a sophisticated and easy to use userinterface and offers multiple functions for all tasks. The menu navigation is very intuitional in use and all functions and parameters are easy to reach because of the graphical interface.

Special Features:

Filesystem and USB Stick Support

The devices have a filesystem for the storage of waveforms in the internal memory or on USB sticks.


Integrated Helpsystem

The integrated helpfunction will show descriptions of single functions and step-by-step instructions for often used tasks.

2 Channels

The extra large display with a diagonal size of 17.18 cm (7") and a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels can easily display the details from both channels of the device. Both channels feature the full range of functions and can be synchronized phase-dependently. This function turns the device into a true dual-channel generator.

Arbitrary signal generation

Almost any waveform can be reproduced by using the arbitrary signal generator. Operation of the device is simplified enormously by the 150 pre-defined waveforms.


Independent analogue and digital modulation

Since the DG4000 series function generators feature two independent channels which can be synchronized, it is also possible to output analogue and digital waveforms simultaneously.


Various sweep functions

The DG4000 signal generators can cycle through defined frequency ranges at a constant amplitude and output various basic waveforms at the same time, such as sine, square, ramp, and arbitrary signals.


Harmonic signals

The function generators are able to generate harmonic overtone signals up to the 16th order, with adjustable parameters such as frequency, amplitude, and phase for all frequencies. Even, odd, all, or user-defined harmonics can be generated.


High resolution frequency counter

These devices feature a standard high resolution frequency counter. It is able to measure the frequency, period, positive and negative pulse length, and the duty cycle – all at frequencies ranging from 1 µHz to 200 MHz.


Frequency counter with Statistics

The frequency counter features a history and statistics function with which signal changes over time can be detected and visualized.
