Increasing Sampling rate of 6517B Electrometer

Dear sir, I am using 6517B electrometer for the low current measurements (0.1pA to 200pA). 6517B is controlled via KUSB-488B GPIB connector and a 6517A/B basic application software (- of the software panel attached). We need a high sampling rate for our measurement at least 300Hz . The 6517b Technic...

Can I use OSCILLOSCOPE for DAQ from 6517B electrometer for current signals?

Dear Sir/Mam, Greetings! I am Jagadeesh from Mechanical Engineering IIT Madras, India. We have bought a Keithley 6517B electrometer and KUSB KI-488 for measuring Ultra low currents. The only ISSUE we face is the SAMPLING RATE of the electrometer. Can the Oscilloscope be helpful in this case for incr...

Re: Can KICKSTART software be useful for DAQ f current signal from 657B Electrometer?

Thanks for your reply mam.

I am trying to use Labview (32 bit) & keithley's KUSB 488B for the aforementioned DAQ purpose.
I have the Labview program for DAQ, But 6517B is not communicating with the Labview.
What are the drivers I have to install for making it work?

Thanks & Regards,

Can KICKSTART software be useful for DAQ f current signal from 657B Electrometer?

Hii sir, I'm using 6517B Electrometer for ultra low current (pA) measurements. I don't have any DAQ software to store the current measurements. I found KICKSTART DAQ Control software recently. Can I use Kickstart software for Control and Data Acquisition of the CURRENT signal from 6517B Electrometer...

Re: UPS Selection for 6517b Electrometer

Thank you for your reply sir.
So minimum 100VA capacity UPS is enough for 6517b.

UPS Selection for 6517b Electrometer

Hi,
I bought a 6517bb electrometer. For that I'm planning to buy UPS. What specification UPS is needed for 6517B Electrometer.
Thanks in Advance

Data Acquisition from 6517B

Hi,
I'm buying 6517B electrometer with KUSB-488B.
Is it enough to get the data(charge and current measurement) from the 6517b in Digital form?
Or I need to buy any A/D Converter or NI data card for Digital form of data?

Thanks and Regards,

Re: FemtoCoulomb(fC) charge measurement is it possible in 6517 Electrometer?

Hi Dale,
Thanks for your kind reply. You said charge sensitivity is 0.01pF But I can measure charge accurately from 50fC.
In your reply You used Farad as a charge unit, Can you tell me the reason.

FemtoCoulomb(fC) charge measurement is it possible in 6517 Electrometer?

Hi, In my application, I'm using Faraday Plate to collect the charges. That Charge is in the range of SubFemtoCoulomb to 0.1pC. Can I use Keithley 6517 Electrometer to measure the charge Intensity? Give me the suggestion. and What is the minimum charge that 6517 can measure? Thanks a lot in advance.
