Can RT Box 1 be set for various load settings (like a function generator?)

0 votes
Can the RT Box 1 be setup to drive a 50 Ohm load? When using a function generator there are settings to change output impedance (high and low.)

It seems like the digital output impedance is fixed at 220 Ohms according to the user manual. Can this be changed on the analog outputs?

Hi Todd, the output impedance of the digital and analog output components are fixed and are specified in the RT Box manual.  They cannot be configured.

The output impedance setting of the function generator is used when the load resistance matches the internal resistance of the function generator.  Is that the case with your hardware?  Can you please provide more information if so.

My load is a custom built board.

Since the output impedance is fixed I will change my board to work with the RT box, thank you.
