RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Keithley Instruments - Press Release 6-26-2007


Keithley's Model 2100 6½-Digit USB Digital Multimeter (DMM)

Cleveland, Ohio – June 26, 2007 - Keithley Instruments, Inc. (NYSE:KEI), a leader in solutions for emerging measurement needs, announces the release of the Model 2100 6½-Digit USB Digital Multimeter (DMM), a high precision, low-cost USB-based instrument. The Model 2100 is ideal for a wide range of production test, burn-in, and manual and semi-automatic R&D applications in bench, portable, or small system measurement configurations and is available for a limited-time introductory price of only $795 USD. As the newest member of Keithley's family of high-performance, precision DMMs, the Model 2100 complements Keithley's line of premium GPIB-based DMMs and combines advanced measurement performance with Keithley's reputation for worldwide service and support. To learn more about the Model 2100 6½-Digit USB DMM and view a short, on-line product tour, visit www.keithley.com/pr/071.

High Precision and Accuracy

The Model 2100 features precision 10VDC accuracy of 38ppm 6½-digit resolution at a fast measurement rate of 50 readings/second (at 6½-digits) over the USB bus, a reading rate that is more than twice as fast as competitive offerings. At 4½-digits, the Model 2100 reads more than 2000 readings/second into its internal, 2000-reading data buffer.

Eleven measurement functions cover the most commonly measured parameters, including Volts, Ohms, Amps, and RTD temperature measurement capability, as well as MX+B, dB, and dBm math modifiers. Fully specified accuracies are valid for one year on all functions for ISO-compliant applications and facilities.

The Model 2100 also offers selectable front and rear inputs plus two- and four-wire remote sense resistance inputs that facilitate use as both a stand-alone, benchtop DMM or in small systems applications.

Easy to Set Up and Use

The Model 2100 6½-Digit USB DMM is easy to set up and begin using right out of the box, needing no additional accessories. All units include standard USB cable, power cord, safety measurement probes, and free utility software to ensure quick startup and a lower total cost of ownership.

The Model 2100's USB interface supports the TMC (Test and Measurement Class) protocol, allowing SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable Instrumentation) commands to be sent over the USB bus for added data transfer and control options. This TMC-compliant USB interface ensures preservation of existing SCPI test code, saving development time and cost.

The Model 2100 includes KI-Tool, a built-in graphic utility that enables trend plotting and data transfer to a PC. It also includes an add-in tool that is used for importing data directly into Microsoft® Excel and Word documents. USB drivers are also provided with each Model 2100 DMM.

Supports a Wide Range of Applications

Keithley's Model 2100 6½-Digit USB DMM is suited for test engineers performing manual and semi-automatic electrical function tests and development and R&D engineers performing electrical validation in emerging electrical design and manufacturing regions. It is also suited for service and calibration technicians working in instrument repair and metrology, research scientists, and engineering students in science and engineering laboratories.

The rugged and durable construction of the Model 2100, including a heavy gauge chassis and cover and rubberized front and rear bumpers, makes it suitable for bench applications as well as portable and field applications.

Price and Availability

Keithley's Model 2100 6½-Digit USB DMM is available for an introductory price of $795 USD through September 30, 2007. After that time, the list price will be $845.
