Keithley 2400 spark followed by smoke...

Post by Joe E19 » March 10th, 2016, 7:41 am

We have a Keithley 2400 SMU that produced a spark from a probe and now doesn’t read anything sensible, reading 23v without anything connected. It was not currently measuring or under any load at the time. It seems something has blown inside the unit however it still turns on fine without displaying any error message. I'd like to repair the unit as it still seems to function. Any ideas what I could try next for troubleshooting?

Sounds like the instrument needs to come back for servicing.
To set up an RMA please call our service department at 503-627-2445.
