    Keysight 34980A Low-cost alternative to VXI & PXI platforms

    The 34980A is an eight-slot mainframe that has an optional built-in 6.5 digit DMM with your choice of 19 different plug-in modules. These include switching from DC to 20 GHz, digital I/O, D/A converters, and counter/totalizer functionality. One mainframe can accommodate up to 560 2-wire multiplexer channels or 1024 2-wire matrix cross points. The 34980A also includes USB, Ethernet, and GPIB as standard interfaces to the PC. With Ethernet connections and the graphical web interface, you can access and control the unit remotely. Standard connectors on the modules also allow you to use standard, off-the-shelf 50- and 70-pin shielded cables to easily connect test signals from the instrument to the unit under test or other test points. Additional wiring options include detachable terminal blocks for discrete wiring needs and mass interconnect solutions.

    The 34980A includes a built-in graphical web interface that provides remote access and control of the instrument via any Java-enabled web browser. Using the Web interface, you can set up, troubleshoot, and maintain your system remotely.

    • View and modify instrument setup
    • Open, close, or monitor switches
    • Setup and initiate scans
    • Send SCPI commands
    • Define and execute switch sequences
    • View error queue
    • Get status reports on relay counts, firmware revisions, and more

    The internal DMM is mounted inside the mainframe and does not consume any of the eight user-available slots. It gives you the flexibility to measure 11 types of inputs:

    • Temperature with thermocouples, RTDs, or thermistors (with 34921A)
    • DC and AC voltage
    • 2- and 4-wire resistance
    • Frequency and period
    • DC and AC current

    The Keysight BenchLink Data Logger software for the 34980A provides a convenient way to collect and analyze your data. The software is a Windows based application that uses a familiar spreadsheet environment to define measurement data to be collected. The tab-based format makes it easy to set up and initiate scans. Simply identify the measurements you want to acquire, initiate the process, and see the data displayed real-time. More Info...

    NEW! Keysight BenchLink Data Logger Pro Software
    The new 34832A Benchlink Data Logger Pro software goes beyond the free Benchlink software that is included with the 34980A. Data Logger Pro is a valuable tool to set up multiple scans, initiate actions based on user defined limits, collect and analyze data in a Windows® environment. Details here.
