Universal Counter

Picotest U6200A + U8220A - 400MHz Universal Counter

The Picotest U6200A + U6220A universal counter, whose production procedures conform to ISO 9004, has frequency resolution of 12 digits per second (Figure-1), 40 ps time interval resolution and a complete set of test and analysis features. The standard U6200A’s CH3 comes with the range from 375 MHz to 6GHz and the standard CH 1 & 2 from 1 mHz to 400 MHz => Complete Specification for U6200A + U6220A!


The Picotest U6200A also provides great features including Frequency & Ratio (11Digits/Sec.), Time interval, Period (2.5 ns to 1000s), Duty Cycle, Pulse Width, Rise/Fall Time, Peak Volts (100 Hz~300 MHz), Phase, Totalize, Temperature Stability (< 1 PPM), Aging Rate (< 2 PPM per year), timebase reference channel (Figure-2) and complete Front-End Isolation. Moreover, it offers 20 memories (Figure-3) for storing frequently-used operations.

The Picotest U6200A offers built-in statistics and math functions. Users can do measurements, simultaneously measure, count in mean, min/max, delta & standard deviation (Figure-4). And scale & offset can be easily used for compensation purpose according to users’ applications. In addition, to reach these measurements, user can easily use the numeric buttons to define settings. Moreover, the U6200 also provides users the visible light buttons as functions are working (Figure-5).

The U6200A supports real-time digital signal processing technology, which is applied to analyze data as simultaneously getting new readings and speeding measurement. The “Limit Modes” is worth to be mentioned, i.e. users can set margin according to their specific measurements, and via Go-On or Stop and USB Output settings (Figure-6), the U6200A can be keep or stop measuring as a limit is exceeded, and generate an output signal to trigger external devices.

Users can get data logs (Figure9) by PC software (Microsoft Excel®) via a USB, or an optional GPIB interface. Furthermore, U6200A supports a webserver function, so users can easily control it via a LAN interface (Figure 10) by inputting an Ethernet address (Default: on web browsers. In addition, by the SCPI commands compatible to Agilent 53132A, the Picotest U6200A can provide familiar syntax string for users’ applications. For more command information, please refer to the U6200A User’s Manual in Chapter 7.
