6½ DMMs Increase Measurement Confidence

6½ DMMs Increase Measurement Confidence

Truevolt technology reduces noise, injected current and input bias current.

Agilent's Truevolt Series digital multimeters purport to help engineers see their measurement data in new ways, get actionable information faster, and document their results more easily. Truevolt technology reduces extraneous factors such as noise, injected current and input bias current for increased measurement confidence. The 34461A DMM is a direct replacement for the industry-standard 34401A DMM. Designed for easy migration, the 34461A offers expanded current ranges from 100 µA to 10 A. The 34460A offers a basic entry point to the 6½ digit class of DMMs. Both devices have a temperature measurement function and expanded diode measurement capability to allow measurement of a larger full-scale voltage with the ability to test more diode types, such as LEDs. The new DMMs also include driverless USB file transfer to a PC and a 4.3-inch, high-resolution, color display to view numerical readings, long-term trends (34461A only), measurement histograms and statistical information. Available today, the 34460A Truevolt DMM is priced at $945 and the 34461A is $1,095.
