6 1/2 Digit High-Performance DMM

The M3510A 6 1/2 Digit Multimeter is the newest generation of DMM from Picotest. This new DMM offers a compact size, light weight, fast measurement speed & throughput, expanded measurement functions, systematization capability and highly usable interface including a standard USB interface and a GPIB/RS-232 interface. The M3510A DMM is suitable for both production and research/development use.

50000 Readings/Sec Sampling Rate

The M3510A adopts the latest A/D technology and achieves 50,000 readings per second at 4 1/2 digits. When sending data to your computer, the M3510A can achieve high precision and stability compared to other DMMs with slow data transmission rate. With the M3510A your work efficiency will be greatly improved, and the operational cost will be greatly reduced.

Dual Measurements & Displays

The dual measurement display feature of M3510A offers two measurement results displayed at the same time and it is easy to set up and configure. For example, when measuring DCV, you may also conduct Thermocouple measurement on M3510A. This allows you to observe temperature change while making other measurements. The M3510A can function as a multimeter and a thermometer in one.

Temperature Measurements

The M3510A DMM supports the RTD temperature measurement and supports the standards such as ITS-90, IEC751 and Callendar-Van Dusen. The RTD function is recommended for more precise measurement. The M3510A also provides the Thermocouple (TC) function. It has a built-in cold junction compensator for improved TC accuracy. Without additional plug-in's and reference temperature settings, you can measure temperature directly via Thermocouples of K, J, R, S, T, E, N, C and B types.

Multi-Measurement & Math Functions

The M3510A DMM offers the capacitance measurement and dual measurement display, in addition to standard measurements, such as DCV, DCI, ACV, ACI, 2WΩ, 4WΩ, Frequency, Period, Thermocouple & RTD, and the math functions, such as Limits, Ratio, MX+B, %, dBm, dB, Min/Max & Null. Measurement ranges have also been expanded. For instance, DC and AC Current Ranges now go up to 10 A.

True RMS

The M3510A DMM adopts an analog conversion technique to provide true RMS value for ACV/ACI measurements regardless of the waveform shape. Only the “heating value” of the AC components of the input waveform is measured. For non-symmetrical waveforms, such as pulse trains, the DC components will be rejected by the RMS measurement.

Simple to Use

Configuring the M3510A is straightforward. Unlike other DMMs with complicated operation modes in the configuration menu, M3510A offers easy-to-use SHIFT, CONFIG, ENTER buttons, arrow keys and corresponding soft keys at the lower part of the display across all the measurement configurations. Using equipments from Picotest just gets easier than ever.

Built-in USB Interface & USBTMC Conformance

A high-speed USB interface is built into the M3510A. A GPIB/RS-232 interface is also included. The included USB interface conforms to the USBTMC protocol. The M3510A can be operated through USBTMC compliant software. So get the M3510A now to replace your old DMMs while keep your existing USBTMC compliant software.

Reliability

The M3510A DMM is of high reliability and complies with CE requirements, from well-packed cartons with the shock absorbing bumpers to careful component selection, circuit protection design, rigorous environmental tests and ISO9001 production. Defective products can be returned with free repair/calibration with one-year warranty.

A Sample Application (Current vs. Temperature)

The M3510A DMM is shipped with the PT-TOOL & PT-LINK software. With the software, you can quickly establish an error-free connection between your PC and the equipment. The M3510A conforms to Standard Commands for Programmable Instrumentation (SCPI). PT-TOOL is a virtual oscilloscope software, which can monitor the DUT with scope display style. PT-LINK is used to collect measurement data in Microsoft Excel or Word and analyze it with charts. In addition, engineers are allowed to compile our Labview Driver for specific applications.

Dimension Information

If problems occur while operating the M3510A, it is recommended to do the self-test first. If you need to perform basic adjustments for Zero & Gain, please follow the instructions in the M3510A Service Manual. A calibrator with at least 6 1/2-digit precision and a shorting plug are required. For a complete calibration with factory reports, contact your local service representative to return your DMM to PICOTEST.
