3.4.18 RESP - Frequency Response
The frequency response test, RESP, may be used to check that the variation in power loss of a telecommunications or audio transformer over a specified frequency range is less than specified limits.
The RESP test consists of a number of Insertion Loss (ILOS) tests repeated at different frequencies.
To program the test:
- Enter the voltage and frequency parameters of the reference test signal.
(If in doubt, refer to Chapter 7 - ‘Test Conditions’, which lists recommended test conditions.)
- Select the integration time required. 'Medium' is the default setting. 'Long' will give more stable readings (for tighter limits) at the expense of an increased test time, and 'Short' will test at the maximum speed, but may give a slightly noisier reading.
- Enter the names of the Hi and Lo input terminals.
- Enter the names of the Hi and Lo output terminals.
- Add test frequencies as required by entering the frequency and clicking 'add'. See Chapter 7.
- Set the frequency response limits. See Setting Limits
- Select OK. The test specification will then be displayed in the program window.
