3110A Standards Waveform Generator: 3000+ Automotive & Industry Standards' Tests Included
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. When coupled with the AE Techron model 7234 amplifier,
the 3110A can create virtually all waveforms, DC offsets, dropouts and surges needed for EMC tests with rise/fall times of 2µs 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 3000+ 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.

How to Build a Test
Tests are created by combining wave segments together with other wave segments and/or control segments.
WAVE SEGMENTS (including sine, ripple, square, triangle, sawtooth, and DC offset) are the basic building blocks of each test.
The frequency, amplitude, and DC offset of each wave segment can be easily adjusted using the Wave Properties window and defined as fixed or linear, logarithmic or exponential sweep, with wave segment durations as short as 50 μs.
CONTROL SEGMENTS like Fixed Loop, Variable Loop,and Trigger make the 3110A able to reproduce very complex standards. The test shown below highlights several key abilities made possible by these control segments.
A multi-step waveform can start at one level/ condition, then be repeated, with up to four variables changing during the wave segment duration. Single or multi-step waveforms can be made to repeat (or loop) and these repeating waveforms can be nested within a larger simple or repeating waveform.
At any point during a waveform sequence, the program can be automatically paused (either holding the previous condition or muting) and wait for an external trigger before resuming.
THE RESULT is a complex waveform sequence that takes only minutes to setup, saving hours in both training and programming time compared to alternative EMC test generators.
