Analog Meters for sale - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

There is one on that list I definitely want.

(email address posted in a manner that makes it tough for the spambots to read it.)

I have a 'broken' HP 425A that reads down to +/-10 pA DC full scale.
The HV filter cap went and killed the supply. Sure wish I had a schematic for it.

Back whenever that was made they called it micromicroamperes. The smallest division on the meter is 0.2 pA To read this small of a current it uses a chopper amp. The 'chopper amplifier' is literally a small motor turning a disc with holes in it. #12 lamps on one side and photocells on the other. I wish they had these things in college. When it worked I showed other engineers that if you just grabbed a couple of 'test leads' out of a drawer and 'shorted them' you would read several pA at room temperature and the current would change when I exhaled on the 'shorted' leads. Using a meter that reads that low requires very careful choice of conductors and connectors.

    Kirt Blattenberger,

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...
