I was hoping to use an old 610C to measure a pulsed current. The peak current will be on the order of microamps, but it will be only 5 us long and run at 1 kHz. From what I can gather from the manual I don't believe I can do it due to the long rise times (somewhere it was written 3 ms in "fast" mode for uA range). I actually measure something but I don't believe it is a correct average. My first question is, does it make sense to use this to measure such a pulsed and short signal? If not, can I use the current integration function to perform such a measurement? Thank you
PS I wasn't sure if this or the electrometer sub-forum was the appropriate place for this, I apologize if this is the wrong one.

I think that the 610C cannot be used as an amplifier at the speed you require. The 610C was designed as a DC or very low frequency AC instrument.
