How often have you found yourself touching the end of an
audio cable and listening for the 50Hz buzz, or shorting the ends of a video
cable so that you can meter the other end to confirm its destination?
How often have you needed a video source then reached for the
VCR in the corner only to find that you don’t have a power lead or a tape with
anything on it?
No matter which facet of the electronic industry you work in,
once you’ve experienced the convenience of this portable audio/video test signal
generator, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
It is an essential piece of test gear for any techo’s toolkit.
Whether you’re in CCTV, broadcast, TV/VCR repair, AV installation or just a
devoted hobbyist, you’ll find that this will become one of the most useful and
best value-for-money products in your arsenal.
The Pocket AV Signal Generator literally is pocket-sized
at just 123 x 80 x 25mm, including signal output sockets. An RCA socket provides
the composite video, with nine fields (screens) to choose from, cycled through
with the touch of a pushbutton.
In addition, two more RCA sockets provide stereo channels of
approximately 1.5kHz audio, with the right channel clearly identifiable to
assist in cable troubleshooting. And to make it completely portable, it operates
from either a 9V battery or a 9V DC plugpack.
