ELECTROMETER/HI RESISTANCE MTR
Keithleyâ€™s 5Â½-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 simplify 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.
Exceptional Performance Specifications
The half-rack-sized Model 6517B has a special low current input amplifier with an input bias current of <3fA with just 0.75fA p-p (peak-to-peak) noise and <20ÂµV burden voltage on the lowest range. The input impedance for voltage and resistance measurements is 200TW for near ideal circuit loading. These specifications ensure the accuracy and sensitivity needed for 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 Â±1kV voltage source with sweep capability simplifies performing leakage, breakdown, and resistance testing, as well as volume (W-cm) and surface resistivity (W/square) measurements on insulating materials.
