Keithley introduces T&M Industry’s first graphical sampling digital multimeter
Keithley Instruments, a world leader in advanced electrical test instruments and systems, announced today the introduction of the Model DMM7510 7½-Digit Graphical Sampling Multimeter, the first of a new class of digital multimeters. It integrates a high accuracy digital multimeter, a digitizer for waveform capture, and a capacitive touch screen user interface. The Model DMM7510 is designed to give users confidence in the accuracy of their results, the ability to explore measurements further, and intuitive touchscreen operation. Its user interface continues the company’s “Touch, Test, Invent” design philosophy that lets users learn faster, work smarter and invent easier.
Jerry Janesch, a senior market development manager at Keithley, noted, “To get an in-depth understanding of their devices under test, engineers need to capture small signals at higher accuracy and faster speeds than traditional DMMs can provide. The Model DMM7510’s intuitive operation and high speed digitizer allow it to address a wide range of test applications, including device characterization, debugging, and analysis; production test/ATE; and applications in research labs and universities.”
The Model DMM7510 offers users a powerful combination of capabilities like higher measurement accuracy, so they can be confident of the integrity of their results and interactivity and waveform visualization via the five-inch capacitive touch screen interface.
The Model DMM7510 provides capabilities and functions most other digital multimeters can’t equal. Some of its major functions includes: five-inch touch screen displays more information simultaneously, lower swipe screen speeds access to often-used features, test results stored in any of the data buffers can be displayed in graph, histogram, or numerical/datasheet form, built-in graphing utility supports displaying and comparing measurements or waveforms from up to four reading buffers at once, test results and screen images can be stored quickly via the USB 2.0 memory port, built-in support is provided for low resistance applications, including dry circuit, offset compensation, and open lead detection, rotary control knob offers an alternative to touch screen navigation, front/rear input selector indicates the inputs currently in use, connections and controls simplify configuring multi-instrument test solutions, including input connectors, remote control interfaces (GPIB, USB 2.0 and LXI/Ethernet), a D-sub 9-pin digital I/O port (for internal/external trigger signals and handler control), and TSP‑Link jacks for connecting to other Keithley instruments with an embedded Test Script Processor (TSP), free KickStart instrument control start-up software lets PC users configure and take measurements quickly and online help is just a click away.
