Multimeter offers extended current ranges of 100µA to 10A
A digital multimeter that helps engineers see their measurement data in new ways, get actionable information faster, and document their results more easily has been introduced by Amplicon. The 34461A from Keysight Technologies features exclusive Truevolt technology that reduces extraneous factors such as noise, injected current and input bias current for increased measurement confidence.
The instrument is a direct replacement for the industry-standard Keysight 34401A DMM, and was designed to make migration easy for current users of the 34401A. The new digital multimeter offers a basic entry point to the 6½ digit class of DMMs.
It offers expanded current ranges from 100µA to 10A. Both the 34460A and 34461A have a temperature measurement function (RTD/PT100, thermistor) and expanded diode measurement capability to allow measurement on a larger full-scale voltage (5 V) making it possible to test more diode types, such as LEDs.
