Thank you

You may find the KickStart software to be helpful for data logging from the 3706A. It has a trial license mode. I suggest you download and give it a try.

In your previous posts, you have indicated that you have the model 3723 switch card. This card will provide no more than 60 two-wire channels.

Hello sir,

Thank you for the reply for my previous post.

But my question is about whether we can log the data from 120 channels at the same time using Kickstart software?

Thank you

Best regards,

> Yes. KickStart Data Logger app channels are determined by the cards that are installed in the model 3706A.

> Yes. NPLC can be configured in KickStart Data Logger app Settings for each channel group.

Hello sir,

Can you please explain me in detail how i can obtain a sampling rate of 1 sample/100 milliseconds/120 channels using keithley 3706(3723 card) for four wire measurement?
1)Do i need to adjust NPLC?If so what is the best NPLC setting?
2)Do i need to keep autozero,autorange,autodelay off?

I tried with different NPLC settings from 0.0005 to 10.0, I am getting around 112 samples/seconds irrespective of different NPLC settings.I am planning to buy the kickstart software if i know i can get the above measurement settings.It would be very helpful if you can help me with this.

Thank you

Regards,
Amith Kashyap

I was also looking for similar softwares for my project. I confess honestly I should say this is not quite easy to find it.Found some useful software notes here - https://www.oxagile.com/key-technologie ... velopment/
