Keithley Releases Four New "How-To" Videos on Operating Electrometers
The titles of the new videos are:
- How to Enable Humidity and Temperature Measurements
- How to Set Up the Model 6517B Electrometer for a Staircase Voltage Sweep
- How to Make a Proper Low Current Measurement
- How to Enable the Meter Connect Feature on the Model 6517B Electrometer
The 5-1/2-digit Model 6517B Electrometer/High Resistance Meter offers accuracy and sensitivity specifications unmatched by any other meter of this type. It also offers a variety of features that simplifies measuring high resistances and the resistivity of insulating materials. With reading rates of up to 425 readings/second, the Model 6517B is also significantly faster than competitive electrometers, so it offers a quick, easy way to measure low-level currents. It is well-suited for making accurate low current and high impedance voltage, resistance, and charge measurements in areas of research such as physics, optics, nanotechnology, and materials science. A built-in ±1kV voltage source with sweep capability simplifies performing leakage, breakdown, and resistance testing, as well as volume and surface resistivity measurements on insulating materials.
