Keysight / Agilent E6173A Arbitrary Dual-Channel Real-Time Waveform Generator VXI Module

  • Single-Slot, C-Size VXI Module
  • Opto-Isolated Inputs
  • Selectable Filtering
  • Deep On-Board Memory
  • Internal or External Timebase


The Agilent E6173A (formerly Agilent Z2471A) is a register-based, two channel, isolated arbitrary waveform generator. Each independent channel provides a waveform output, a marker output, and an input trigger BNC connector. Additionally, a BNC connector is provided to allow the use of an external timebase (the external timebase is common to both channels).

The module is controlled via register access in A24 VXIbus addressing. Multiple waveforms can be downloaded into memory. Waveforms can be sequenced in any order, linked to other waveforms, and repeated. The sample rate can be set by the internal 10 MHz timebase or by using an external timebase.

A programmable marker output on each channel can be used to synchronize other instruments. Each channel also accepts an external trigger input to allow both channels or multiple modules to start simultaneously.

Product Family: E6173A, E-6173A, E 6173A, 6173A, 6173-A, 6173 A, Z2471A, Z-2471A, Z 2471A, 2471A, 2471-A, 2471 A, Z2472A, Z-2472A, Z 2472A, 2472A, 2472-A, 2472 A

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!
