Customers in Europe can pre-order the 6½-digit Keithley DMM6500 for immediate shipment on 16 April 2018. The DMM6500 is a modern Bench/System digital multimeter (DMM) ideally suited for design engineers and production test engineers, delivering more measurement functionality and a price that will not break the budget.

The DMM6500 is equipped with all the measurement functions expected in a bench multimeter, eliminating the need to buy additional measurement capabilities.

It has 15 measurement functions including capacitance, temperature (RTD, thermistor and thermocouple), diode test with variable current sources, and up to 1 MS/sec digitising.

The digitising function can be used for voltage or current and is especially useful in capturing transient anomalies or to help profile power events such as the operating states of today’s battery operated devices.

Current and voltage can be digitized with a programmable 1 MS/sec 16-bit digitizer, making it possible to acquire waveforms without the need for a separate instrument.

The 5in. capacitive touch display makes it easy to observe, interact with and explore measurements with “pinch and zoom” simplicity.

Beyond its display technology, the DMM6500 superior analogue measurement performance delivers 25PPM basic DCV accuracy for one year and 30PPM for two years, allowing users to extend calibration cycles.

The instrument offers more measurement functions and wider measurement ranges (including 10 µA to 10 A and 1 mΩ to 100 MΩ) with more sensitivity to maximise the utility of the DMM and to enable measurements on new, low power components and products as well as 1Msample/s digitising to capture complex waveforms and transients.

Test script processing (TSP) reduces time-consuming communications with a PC and the ability to customise measurements for specific applications.

Optional scan cards expand the number of measurements that can be taken with a single DMM

The instrument has a large internal memory. It can store up to 7 million readings, additional USB host port for storing readings, instrument configurations and screen images.

Two year specifications are offered to reduce the cost of ownership and th instruments are covered by a three year warranty.
