Synchronising two arbitrary waveform generators

For applications that call for more than 2 channels, a built-in synchronisation feature allows for synchronising two 81180A Arbitrary Waveform Generators to create a fully synchronised 4-channel system. The synchronisation procedure is described in this document.

Two instruments can be synchronised only when cross-connected with a designated synchronisation cable. To connect the cable, turn the power off on both instruments. Locate the rear-panel Master/Slave connector and attach each side of the cable to these connectors. Note that the connectors do not lock into position without screwing in the bolts on each side. Use a flat tip screwdriver to latch the cables into their receptacle housing, making sure the connectors are straight and firmly locked into place. Once the cable is connected, the instruments can be powered on again.
