Signametrics Announces Lowest Cost 5-1/2 Digit PXI Digital Multimeter
Most economical DMM for PXI and cPCI, Signametrics SMX2055 features fastest measurement rate for 5-1/2 digit DMMs
Seattle, WASignametrics introduced its newest 5-1/2-digit PXI/cPCI Digital Multimeter, pioneering a new price-performance breakthrough for PXI DMM users. The SMX2055 boasts fastest measurement speeds in its class with over 100 readings per second (rps). Employing newly available technologies, Signametrics introduces best accuracy, highest reliability at the lowest price.
The SMX2055, plug-and-play PXI/cPCI DMM features true 5-1/2 digits of resolution and the highest dynamic range of +/-240,000 counts. With 100 reading per second it is 10 times faster than its leading competitor. The SMX2055 features true 2-Wire and 4-Wire resistance measurements with six (6) ranges from 240 ohms to 24 Mohms. Five (5) Ohms current sources of the SMX2055 facilitate the higher accuracy, measurement range and lowest floor, as compared to its competitor's two (2) sources. Additional features included in this new low-cost PXI DMM are: Wide band TRMS AC voltage and current measurements, Diode test at five different currents, Auto-range and relative measurements, Min/Max, dB, and percent deviation functions.
"The large number of current sources implemented in the SMX2055 is the key to its superb resistance resolution and the widest resistance range in this DMM class," says Tee Sheffer, president of Signametrics Corporation. "Measurement speed over 100 rps, and DCV input resistance of 10 Gohms make the SMX2055 far superior to any 5-1/2 digit DMM on the market. With its lowest price, the SMX2055 is hard to ignore."
Touch and Feel; software support
The SMX2055 has the same "touch and feel" of bench-top digital multimeters. It is fully compatible with the existing Signametrics line of PXI and PCI DMM families, facilitating painless shift up or down. All Signametrics DMMs are accompanied by "front panel" software, DLLs for all Windows applications, LabView and Linux drivers.
Price and Availability
Available off the shelf, the SMX2055 is priced at $795.
A Family of Test and Measurement Plug-in Cards
Preserving a DMM's accuracy demands instrumentation- quality switching. Signametrics' switching modules for the PXI/cPCI, are the natural complements to its high precision PXI DMMs with their high isolation, and extremely low noise and thermal EMF. The combination of the SMX2055 or any other Signametrics DMM, with the fully isolated SMX4032 Switching modules makes up the foundation for a precision Test and Measurement system.
