34970A DAQ Switch Unit

The Keysight 34970A DAQ switch unit combines simplicity of user interface with low per-channel cost, modular flexibility and impressive measurement performance. Its versatility includes use as a data-logger, data acquisition front-end and switch system. It measures and converts temperature with thermocouples, RTDs & thermistors, dc & ac volts, 2-wire & 4-wire resistance, frequency & period and dc & ac current. Each channel is independently configurable. Built-in signal conditioning means users can measure 11 different functions without the added cost or hassle of external signal conditioning accessories. With an emphasis on flexibility, the 34970A also allows user to specify measurement functions by individual channel and take advantage of user-definable units, Mx + B scaling and alarm limits.

Intuitive front panel - task-oriented, self-guiding menus
50k readings of non-volatile memory holds data when power removed
6.5 digit internal DMM measures 11 functions without external signal conditioning
Monitor display mode for tests in progress
Scaling function for converting raw inputs into user-defined units
HI/LO alarm limits on each input channel plus 4 TTL alarm outputs
