Product Details

Supports USBTMC

The M3500A multimeter unit supports USBTMC (USB Test & Management Class). All USB devices conform to USBTMC irrespective of the environment or operating system. These devices can communicate with a computer and can work under VISA assistance. Users do not have to spend money on expensive GPIB module as the control procedures for VISA to USBTMC and VISA to GPIB are the same.

Stability, Speed and Accuracy

Using 7.5 digit techniques for 6.5 digit digital multimeter provides a fast, accurate and table measurement from this unit.

19 Full-Featured Functions

The M3500A unit features 11 measurements and 8 mathematical functions that include DCI, DCV, ACV, ACI, 2Wohm, 4Wohm, Frequency, Diode Test, Period, Continuity, Temperature, Ratio, Limits, %, MX+B, dB, dBm, Min/Max, and Null. In addition to these, trigger and memory functions are also included to aid better measurement.

Temperature Measurements

The M3500A unit supports thermal measurements from thermocouples and RTDs. It supports J, K, T, E, N, S and R type thermocouples. ITS-90, IEC751 and Callendar-Van Dusen standards are applied for RTDs temperature conversions.


Multi-Point Scan

The M3500A unit supports 2-pole multi-point scanner cards like OPT01, OPT09, and OPT12. For general purpose measurements like DCV/ACV/Indirect DCI & ACI with Current Shunt/2W/4W/Freq/Period, OPT01(10-ch)/OPT09 (20-ch) scanner cards are used. Whereas, the OPT12 (10-ch) scanner card provides measurements for thermocouples RTDs apart from all the function supported by OPT01/OPT09 cards.

Dual Displays with 3-Colour Annunciators

The dual VFD displays with 5x7 dot-matrix and three-colour annunciators helps users in easily distinguishing between each colour coded symbols.

Noise Immunity

The multi-slope analog to digital converter helps the multimeter to attain fast sampling rates, remove most of the noise and maintain linearity of measurements. Four sets of earth ground on the front panel and usage of copper conductors help in eliminating environmental background noise and reduce thermal EMFs.

Built-in USB Interface

The USB port provided in the M3500A unit makes it easy to use. It delivers a high data-transfer rate of 2000 reading per second and helps the multimeter to reach fast sampling and I/O data rates.

Free Remote-Control Software

PT-TOOL & PT-LINK are remote control software supplied with the M3500A unit. These easy to use software are provided for free and help in better understanding and functioning of the multimeter.
