This video describes how to setup the 34410A or 34411A Digital Multimeter using the front panel to view the 2nd display. While the main display shows DC Volts, the second display will show you the peak to peak voltage and therefore give you more information about the voltage you are measuring. Video:… (Show more)

The Agilent 34401A is the industries most popular 6.5 digit digital multimeter. The 34401A is a true multimeter as it offers DCV, ACV, DC and AC current, 2 and 4 wire resistance, frequency, period, diode test and much more. It is easy to use on the bench and provides 1000 rdgs/s in a system. Watch this short video:… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi   I have a multimeter Keysight 34410A. It was used a little.    It have a problem with switching autorange at funcion Resistance. If I switch range mannulaly  2W (ohms) and set autorange It working correctly.    Problem is: I switch from function ACV or CONT to function 2W, when it have running function ACV min. 5-8 second before. Multimeter… (Show more)

PreTrigger count does not seem to work when TrgSrc is Level and measuring DCV on 34465A FW A.03.00-02.40-03.00-00.52-02-01 The data acquired starts at the triggering level and not 10000 samples before the triggering level.   However, PreTrigger values are in the acquired data when TrgSrc is Ext.   Is this a bug or might I be missing something… (Show more)

This is an observation about the behaviour of the 34465A DMM which is different than the 34411A predecessor. Both DMMs have the DIGITIZING option (standard with the 34411A) and 2M Memory options fitted. When the 34465A is set to maximum sampling rate, (SAMPLE:TIM MIN) then read back  (SAMPLE:TIM?) it shows 2E-05 (20 uSec). Using a sig-gen using… (Show more)

Hi,   I am trying to take a large sample of DC current measurements. While the correct readings are displayed on the multimeter itself, the correct data is not being sent to my PC. I only receive the value '16' from the multimeter. Due to the error 'query interrupted', I believe that the problem lies in the full data not being read by my computer… (Show more)

What are the negative fluctuations that we expect with preferably the 34410A (or the 34401A) when we are in an open circuit or when a device is turned off for DC&AC Voltage&Current measurements?   I want to avoid the -0 issues with automated measurements, however I need to have a valid reason to put a negative value as a low limit.   Measurement… (Show more)

Hello - I have an Agilent 3458A unit (Malaysian built) and want to extend memory with option -001. Normally one needs to replace PAL device U102 with a modified logic content ...   On the Keysight website - there is a spare parts list for the 3458A that lists: - 03458A-88810         Programmed PAL-1819-0239 for 001          cost.: 26,71 euros… (Show more)

I recently had a battery leak on my U1242B. I cleaned up the corroded contacts the best I could. I also had one of the contacts on the back of the PCB corrode slightly where the battery cradle contacts touches the main board. There wasnt any other battery damage I could see. It was working fine until today.   Now I constantly get an AErr with… (Show more)
