Voltage difference between terminales

Post by zvikae » June 21st, 2018, 11:26 pm

when measuring resistance, is there a limit for max voltage difference between input High and sense High? and input Low and sense Low? (like the limit in SMU's).

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 of whatever voltage is present on input Hi). Specifically for 4-wire resistance, page 3 of the DMM6500 Specifications list a "Maximum 4-wire lead-resistance". These resistances, multiplied by the Test Currents for the proper range listed at the top of page 3 would give you the maximum voltage drop between terminals before you may start to see measurement errors.
