Re: Voltage difference between terminales

There's no specification for maximum allowable voltage between the input and sense terminals, however, there are still some limits present in other specs. In terms of safety, there should never be a voltage difference larger than 350 V between either sense terminal and input Lo (this is independent ...

Re: How Do I add Pre-amp to 4200 configuration?

Hi Liam,

Pre-amps are matched to a specific SMU when they're ordered since they need careful calibration. Are you connecting it to the same SMU it's been connected to before? Or did you purchase this Pre-amp separately?

Re: Easiest way to implement HOLD button?

Thank you! For both the feedback and the advice, it helps us make better products in the future. Some of our engineers have posted a few times on EEVBlog, but we don't want to make it seem like we're there to sell stuff, so we'll mostly only chime in if someone misquotes one of our specs or asks a q...

Re: Easiest way to implement HOLD button?

My pleasure! Yes, the names of the trigger model blocks are a bit vague, and the builder doesn’t offer too much help, that’s something we’re looking to address in the future. It has much fuller documentation in the Reference Manual ( https://www.tek.com/tektronix-and-keithley-digital-multimeter/dmm6...

Re: Easiest way to implement HOLD button?

Ah okay, yes I think we can make this easier for you. Try using the script I'm attaching here. It won't actually run as a script but will import a trigger model. Once it's initiated, you can press the TRIGGER key on the front of the instrument to switch between Continuous measurement and pausing (a ...

Re: KULT cannot find VC++

Im having the same issue as mentioned above. Im using 4200-SCS. I tried initialising and rebooting. Still the same error exists. But im using the student edition of Visual stdio Is it not possible to run KULT if Visual Stdio is of Student edition? If you haven't been able to get KULT working yet: T...

Re: Easiest way to implement HOLD button?

So you'd like the instrument to continuously make measurements, but when you press the trigger button you want the instrument to stop/pause/hold so you have time to review what's just been captured. Then, I'm assuming, be able to press trigger again to go back to making continuous measurements? That...

Re: Easiest way to implement HOLD button?

You can start a trigger model from the Home screen (and a couple other screens) by pressing the CONT/MAN label in the top right of the screen. That does the same thing as holding down the trigger key so that you can select to initiate a trigger model. It sounds like you already have a trigger model,...
