F6 Multiple Amplifier Configurator Software

Password Protected - Current Registered F6XX instrument Users Only

F6 Multiple Amplifier Configurator is a software for configuring and controlling several F6 amplifiers (F6350 and F6300). The software is hosted on one computer and can control/configure up to 16 amplifiers.

Configuration of amplifiers is required to enable correct amplification of the low level signals that are provided by a host simulator such as the RTDS (Real Time Digital Simulator). The amplified signal must be of the correct magnitude based on conversion factors that are selected as part of the configuration process.

The configuration software configures both the AC analog outputs of the amplifiers and also the battery output of the F6350s. Since F6300 does not have a battery, it cannot be configured for battery output.

This software can run on both Windows XP and Windows 7 operating systems.

A password is required to unzip the installation package. To obtain the password, please send an e-mail to fserieshelp@doble.com with the subject line 'F6MultipleAmplifierConfigurator Password' (no quotes). Please state your name and affiliation in your e-mail. Download duration of this file will depend on your connection.
