Negative to positive TTL signal

Model 6482 is giving an negative TTL signal. What would I need to use to change that signal to positive TTL signal?
The device that I am trying to trigger can only accept following external signal parameters
Low 0V to +0.8V
High +3V to +5V
4ns or wider
1kOhm input impedance

On the TLINK lines the signal goes from High (3.4V typical) to Low (0.25V typical) which would make it appear as if it was giving a negative signal. This can be referenced in the 6482 user manual on page 7-13, the triggering occurs on the falling edge of the signal which is why it is done this way.
