The Tektronix 2707 is an external Tracking Generator for use with the 2711, 2712, 2714, and 2715 Spectrum Analyzers.

The Tektronix 2707 Tracking Generator is used to characterize filters, test duplexers and cables, measure frequency response, SWR measurements (with a return-loss bridge), and EMI site attenuation tests. The 2707 performs swept measurements from 100 Hz to 1.8 GHz with output from –48 dBm to 0 dBm (–1.2 dBmV to 46.8 dBmV) in 0.1 dB steps and at least 100 dB dynamic range to see filter, ultimate rejection, or circuit isolation characteristics.

The 2707 Tracking Generator connects to 271X spectrum analyzers equipped with factory Option 15, which provides a rear panel SMA-F and a female DB15 (three-row, 15-pin) connector, using a single LO coax cable and one 15-pin interconnection control cable.

2711s, 2712s, and 2714s ordered without Option 07 or Option 15 have a female DB9 nine pin rear panel connector and will not work with the external 2707 Tracking Generator. In the 2715, Tektronix replaced the DB9 with a female DE15, but these instruments do not have the SMA-F connector unless Opt. 15 is installed.

2707 External Tracking Generators with Option 01 have a 75 Ω output for use with 2714 and 2715 75 Ω analyzers.
