Anyone have a VC2002 Function Generator?
 
Hi all

I've been intending to build myself a function generator, but spotted this on Ebay, from China. I couldn't buy the bits for that price! Anyone have one? Is it good?

Hi

I have one and i'm happy with it.

It is spoted on with my Fluke 1900A counter.

D'ont ask why I have both... :D

Of course you needed both. Otherwise you might always doubt the Fluke!

(I always wondered about the wisdom of calling precision measurement devices by the name Fluke. In the Australian vernacular, a fluke is a chance happening. I fluked it, it was just a fluke, that sort of thing. But perhaps that isn't a widespread usage.)

Thanks Tube_Dude!

Hi Terry

Some information about the VC 2002... ;)

Greetings.

Hmmm, now I'm confused. I had been asking about the Victor VC2002 Function Generator, but the file you've loaded appears to relate to the Victor VC3165 Frequency Counter!

Sorry, my mistake about the file. Actually I have both, the Victor VC2002 Function Generator and the Velleman DVM13MFC2U Frequency Counter, that is a rebranded Victor VC3165 Frequency Counter.

And how do you find the frequency counter? (I was wondering about getting one of these too.)

Here you have one in your corner of the world...

Whoops, sorry, I fell for the old trick. When an Australian says How did you find something, he means, "was it any good"! I remember when the Beatles visited Australia in 1964, a reporter asked them, And how did you find Australia? They all looked a bit puzzled, and then Ringo said brightly, It was easy, we just turned right at Hawaii!

So let me rephrase my question. Have you found the counter to be good?

Thanks, I'll have a good look at it.

I guess one of the things that makes me nervous about buying modern test equipment is repairability. In the "good old days", the manual included a schematic (or at least a maintenance manual was available), and you could readily fix anything that went wrong. Modern equipment isn't so obliging. A few years back, needing a mic preamp urgently and not having the time at the time to do the decent thing and build it, I went down to the local music supply place and bought a Behringer. It proved a total heap of rubbish - first one channel went intermittent, and then the other. A look inside told me it wasn't something that would be easy to fix, or even worth fixing. I'm still limping along with it, but its days are severely numbered....
