6517B Electrometer/High Resistance Meter

Tools

The 5½-digit Model 6514 and Model 6517B Electrometers offer 1fA sensitivity, >200TΩ input impedance on voltage measurements, and charge measurements down to 10fC. The 6½-digit Model 6430 Sub-Femtoamp Remote SourceMeter SMU Instrument can measure current with 1aA sensitivity. Its low noise and drift performance make it ideal for research on single electron devices, highly resistive nanowires and nanotubes, polymers, and electrochemical applications.

Keithley Series 2290 High Voltage DC Power Supplies

Tools

Series 2290 High Voltage Power Supplies are ideal for high voltage device and material testing, as well as high energy physics experiments. Choose the Model 2290-5 Power Supply for voltage outputs up to 5000V or the Model 2290-10 Power Supply for up to 10,000V. These supplies measure both output voltage with 1V resolution and output current with 1μA resolution. In addition to the voltage and current output displays, a third display shows one of four settings: output voltage, voltage limit, cu...

Keysight E3631A DC Power Supply, Programmable

Tools

This 80-watt triple output supply offers three independent 0 to +6 V / 5 A and 0 to ± 25 V / 1 A outputs. The 6V output is electrically isolated from the ± 25 V supply to minimize any interference between circuits under tests. The ±25 V outputs can be set to track each other.

NI 9213 Vacuum Chamber DAQ Sysyem

Tools

The NI 9213 is a high-density thermocouple module for NI C Series carriers designed for higher-channel-count systems. With this module, you can add thermocouples to mixed-signal test systems without taking up too many slots.

The NI 9213 is similar to the NI 9211 four-channel thermocouple module except it features four times the channel count and almost 100 times the sample rate. In high-speed mode, each channel can sample at 75 S/s. When 12 or fewer channels are used, the maximum sample r...

SP-300 Modular Research Grade Potentiostat/Galvanostat/FRA

Tools

The SP-300 chassis offers two slots. The first one is used by a potentiostat. The second one remains available for an option such as an additional potentiostat board (either standard or EIS) to reach a bipotentiostat configuration. It is also a multiple user system as the two channel boards can be used independently by two different users.
