Java 7 Update 51 changed Java's security policy, which is preventing a number of Keithley instrument web applets from running. The following instruments are affected:
  • Series 2600B
  • Series 2600A
  • Series 2650A
  • Model 3706A
  • Models 707B and 708B
Firmware updates to correct the issue are in process. In the meantime, here is a simple workaround:
  • Open the Windows Control Panel -> Java
  • Click on the Java Security Tab and change the Security Level to Medium.
  • Click on OK to save changes
  • Note: In some cases it also necessary to click on the Site List button and edit the list to add the IP addresses of your instrument(s), for example http://134.63.79.93/
Please note that if your instrument's model number is not listed above, there are presently no plans to update that instrument's firmware for this issue.

Corrective Firmware Status:
  • Series 2600B - Rev 3.0.4 firmware is now available on the Keithley website
  • Series 2600A - Rev 2.2.5 firmware is now available on the Keithley website
  • Series 2650A - Rev 1.1.4 firmware is now available on the Keithley website
