Product Overview

The Keithley 485 Autoranging Picoammeter is a low-cost, highly sensitive, easy-to-use instrument. The input can withstand extrememly high overloads for flexibility in a wide range of applications in test, research, and student labs. An analog output linearly converts the incoming current to voltage for hard copy output or control loop applications. The Keithley 485’s input voltage drop (burden) is actively constrained by feedback techniques so that this picoammeter makes high accuracy current measurements even in circuits with very low source voltages.

The Keithley 485 has several features that facilitate measuring low current. In the autorange mode, this picoammeter maximizes resolution. The REL button makes readings relative to the baseline (the reading prior to touching the button). The LOG button converts the display to the logarithm (base 10) of the absolute value of the measured current. Digital calibration is performed from the front panel or over the bus. A 100-point data store buffer collects and stores measurements at one of six automatic reading rates from three per second to one per hour, or manually with the STORE button. Minimum and maximum readings are continuously updated at three per second in the data store mode.

Features and Specifications of the Keithley 485 Autoranging Picoammeter include:
