I could not find any Triax to TNC adaptor by Keithley but I did find a TNC to Triax BNC by CNMC. Will this an a Model 6171 (3-slot male to 2-lug female triax adapter) work?
Alternatively, I found a Triax BNC Plug (M/F) [3-Lug] cable connector by RPD Inc. Will this fit the input connector on the 6517B?
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
If so we do offer the 237-BNC-TRX which has a female triax on one end and a male BNC on the other end.
Alternatively you can also use the 7078-TRX-BNC which has a male triax connection and then a female BNC connection on the other end.
Both will accomplish the same task but terminates at different points.

It is very common to have two or three adapters to change Keithley triax to something much more garden variety.
Do not use a triax adapter from another manufacturer unless you are 100% positive that it does not not short out an important signal and that it does not introduce leakage. Keithley triax adapters are the result of decades of refinement.
Assuming I use a 7078-TRX-BNC Adapter, I will lose the 3rd connection, so this is not a viable option.
I attach a - of a Triax BNC male to Triax TNC female adapter. Will this adapter fit a 6171 adapter? In other words, is a Triax connector the same as what other manufacturers call Triax BNC (disregarding the slots-lugs)?
