Introduction
This manual is a reference designed to familiarize you with the Quantum Com-
posers 9530 series pulse generator and is arranged so that you can easily find
the information you're looking for. Generally, each topic has its own section and
no section assumes that you've read anything else in the manual.
Technical Support
For questions or comments about operating the 9530 -- our technical staff can
be reached via one of the following methods:
- Phone - (406) 582-0227
- Fax - (406) 582-0237
- Internet - www.quantumcomposers.com
Warranty
In addition to a 30-day money back guarantee, the 9530 has a two-year limited
warranty from the date of delivery. This warranty covers defects in materials and
workmanship. Quantum Composers will repair or replace any defective unit.
Contact us for information on obtaining warranty service.
Package Contents
The box you receive should contain the following:
- 9530 Pulse Generator
- AC Power Cord
- User's Manual on Disk
Contact Quantum Composers (406) 582-0227 if any parts are missing.

Safety Issues
Normal use of test equipment presents a certain amount of danger from electri-
cal shock because testing must be performed where exposed voltage is
present.
An electrical shock causing 10 milliamps of current to pass through the heart will
stop most human heartbeats. Voltage as low as 35 VDC or RMS AC should be
considered dangerous and hazardous since it can produce a lethal current under
certain conditions. Higher voltages pose an even greater threat because such
voltage can easily produce a lethal current. Your normal work habits should
include all accepted practices that will prevent contact with exposed high volt-
age, and steer current away from your heart in case of accidental contact with a
high voltage. You will significantly reduce the risk factor if you know and observe
the following safety precautions:
*
If possible, familiarize yourself with the equipment being tested and the
location of its high-voltage points. However, remember that high voltage may
appear at unexpected points in defective equipment.
*
Do not expose high voltage needlessly. Remove housing and covers only
when necessary. Turn off equipment while making test connections in high-
voltage circuits. Discharge high-voltage capacitors after shutting down power.
*
When testing AC powered equipment, remember that AC line voltage is
usually present on power input circuits, such as the on-off switch, fuses, power
transformer, etc.
*
Use an insulated floor material or a large, insulated floor mat to stand on,
and an insulated work surface on which to place equipment. Make certain such
surfaces are not damp or wet.
*
Use the time-proven "one hand in the pocket" technique while handling an
instrument probe. Be particularly careful to avoid contact with metal objects that
could provide a good ground return path.
*
Never work alone. Someone should always be nearby to render aid if
necessary. Training in CPR first aid is highly recommended.

Front Panel Overview
9530 Front Panels
Display Layout and Indicators
A 4 line x 20 character vacuum fluorescent display module displays parameters
and status information. The status information is located in the upper-left corner
of the display, between the two brackets. There are four enunciators:
*
Vertical Arrow
Indicates there are additional pages to the current
menu.
*
Blinking Light
Indicates the unit is actively generating pulses, or
armed and waiting for an external trigger.
*
Musical Note
Indicates the function key has been pressed.
*
Question Mark
In external oscillator operation, indicates the internal
pll is not yet locked with the external clock signal.
The upper-right side of the display contains the title of the currently displayed
menu. The rest of the display is used for system parameters. The display
brightness may be adjusted, allowing the instrument to be used under various
lighting conditions.
Description of Front-Panel Area
Keypads
Three keypad areas provide fast access to various menus and easy editing of
system parameters.
*
Menu Keypad
Provides one touch access to the channel, trigger, gate
and system menus for setting up the appropriate pa-
rameters. The Page button will allow you to page
through the multiple levels of a menu, if multiple levels
exist.
*
Arrow Keypad
The up/down arrows are used to increment/decrement
the current parameter (indicated by the blinking cursor).
The position of the cursor controls the step size for
each increment. The right/left arrow moves the cursor
to different positions within the current parameter. The
NEXT key selects the next parameter in the currently
displayed menu.
