Help on 8009 test fixture for electrometer 6517B

Post by aravinth.iitm » April 4th, 2013, 12:32 am


Am planning to use the test fixture 8009 (used along with 6517B-resistivity meter) for AC impedance (z) measurement with the help of LCR meter, Here i might apply a voltage of 10 volts with a frequency sweep from 50 Hz to 12 MHz.

My query here is, even though the 8009 is insulated to work with 1000 V DC supply, will it work well for a 10 V AC input with few MHz frequency? because it may be designed to work only with DC..!

With Regards,

You are correct. The design of 8009 test fixture is different than an AC or two port type of measurement. The interconnect/cabling are totally different between CV and IV application. I am not sure why you wanted to use the 8009. Why not use a probe?

With our 4200-SCS parameter analyzer, you will find multiple application notes regarding this subject between testing IV, CV and Pulsed-IV. You will also see some examples on how to handle connection between AC & DC.

I hope this helps.
