Recommend me electronics testing equipment

  1. Oct 19, 2005 #1
    What I really need is an analogue function generator of some sort. Right now im using a tektronix cfg250 which can put out up to 2mhz frequencies (square, sine, sawtooth, etc). Is there anything similiar to this? I dont want anything with a screen on it...but it looks like tektronix doesnt sell anything under $2500 anymore.

    I also need a power supply...40volts and 500mA would suffice. Any recommendations from the electronic savvy people out there?


    PSU im using now: http://www.tek.com/site/ps/0,,3M-15099-INTRO_EN,00.html

    The best company is hp/agilent which makes the highest quality test equipment, you can find pretty good deals on ebay.

    tek only makes good oscilloscopes, besides that other companies aren't really reliable.

    I'm not sure HP and Agilent is within his budget. Sometimes good enough is truly good enough.
