The Series 3700 offers scalable, instrument grade switching and multi-channel measurement solutions that are optimized for automated testing of electronic products and components. The Series 3700 includes four versions of the Model 3706 system switch mainframe along with a growing family of plug-in switch and control cards. When the Model 3706 mainframe is ordered with the high performance multimeter, you receive a tightly integrated switch and measurement system that can meet the demanding application requirements in a functional test system or provide the flexibility needed in stand-alone data acquisition and measurement applications.
The high performance multimeter option provides up to 7½-digit measurements, offering 26-bit resolution to support your ever-increasing test accuracy requirements. This flexible resolution supplies a DC reading rate from >14,000 readings/second at 3½ digits to 60 readings/second at 7½ digits to accommodate a greater span of applications. The multimeter does not use a card slot, so you maintain all six slots in your mainframe. In addition, the multimeter is wired to the mainframe’s analog backplane, ensuring a high quality signal path from each card channel to the multimeter.
The multimeter supports 13 built-in measurement functions, including: DCV, ACV, DCI, ACI, frequency, period, two-wire ohms, four-wire ohms, three-wire RTD temperature, four-wire RTD temperature, thermocouple temperature, thermistor temperature, and continuity. In addition, the multimeter offers extended low ohms (1Ω) and low current (10μA) ranges. In-rack calibration is supported, which reduces both maintenance and calibration time.
