3110A Standards Waveform Generator: 1500+ Automotive & Industry Standards' Tests Included

3110 standards waveform generator


Up to 1 MHz EMC Testing

  • Easiest-to-use LF wave sequence generator
  • 1550+ automotive and aviation standards' tests included
  • Dramatically reduces test time for repetitive test sequences
  • Semi-automatic calibration routine significantly reduces labor-intensive tasks (like CS101)
  • Very easy to modify included waveform sequences or create new ones

Key Performance Capabilities:

  • Bandwidth - DC to 1 MHz
  • Rise Time - Under 1µs
  • Minimum Pulse Duration - Under 50µs

The 3110A is a simple-to-use yet powerful standards waveform generator. It can be combined with other AE Techron products to quickly create a wide range of powerful and intelligent EMC test solutions.

The 3110A outputs a standard analog signal that can work with any AE Techron amplifier or other LF amplifiers that you already have. It has a scalable output, so the values entered in the 3110A interface will result in your desired system output. When coupled with the AE Techron model 7228 amplifier, the 3110A can create virtually all waveforms, DC offsets, drop outs and surges needed for EMC tests with rise/ fall times of 1 μs or greater and frequencies from DC to 1 MHz.

The 3110A software is built around the simple concept of a waveform segment. Each waveform segment can have a unique waveform, (sine, square, triangle, and/or DC offset). Frequency, amplitude and DC offset can be clipped, fixed, variable or swept. Segments can be calibrated (as required in CS101) and set to continue on to the next segment or to hold for an external trigger.

The power of the system occurs when waveform segments are linked to create test sequences. These test sequences can be of any length and can be run as a single sequence, looped, or looped with multiple variables changing within the test sequence (as required in multiple Toyota and GM standards). Finally, multiple sequences can be combined to create a single customized extended test.

An extensive library of 1500+ tests for many automotive, aviation and industry Standards makes it possible for the 3110A to save time from day one. And, for customers that require over-testing or testing for products that have no predefined standard, tests from the Standards Library can be easily modified and saved for later use

The 3110A delivers extensive capabilities for LF EMC testing with very short training-time requirements. Plus, it makes it easy to automate repetitive and labor-intensive tasks, making the 3110A a very efficient and cost-effective solution for LF EMC testing.

Build a System

Together, the 3110A and 7220- and 7700-series amplifiers create an intelligent, engineered, modular test system. Continuous DC power ratings from 15A to 240A DC are possible with various combinations of the 3110A and off-the-shelf AE Techron audio-bandwidth amplifiers. For aviation testing, systems can be created for 115 VAC/230 VAC with surge voltages up to 380 VAC.

Key System Features

  • Output voltages are entered into the 3110A which automatically scales its output to achieve the requested voltage at the output of the amplifier.
  • The 3110A has provisions for system (3110 + amplifier) DC offset and gain correction.
  • Modular construction allows you to create a system with the voltage and current needed. If, at some point in the future, test requirements change, you are able to add to or change the system as needed.

DC System Example:

3110A + 7228
  • 13.5 / 14 / 18 VDC
  • 16A continuous<; 50A surge/li>
  • DC to 1 MHz bandwidth
  • ±80 VDC voltage potential

DC System Example:

3110A + 2 x 7796
  • 13.5 / 14 / 18 VDC
  • 120A continuous
  • 400A surge
  • ±100 VDC voltage potential

  • 115 / 230 VRMS
  • 16A continuous (at 115V or above)
  • 50 ARMS surge
  • 0 - 380 VRMS voltage potential
