Agilent expands PXI Digital Multimeter offering

Agilent Technologies announced the launch of M9181A digital multimeter to complement its PXI DMMs. This new 6 digit PXI DMM offers basic measurement features, without compromising resolution and reliability, at a competitive price point.

With the M9181A, test engineers in aerospace/defense, electronic manufacturing, and automotive industries now have an economical PXI DMM alternative.

The M9181A 6 digit PXI DMM measures common parameters such as DCV, DCI, ACV, ACI, and two- and four-wire resistance. The DMM offers 90-parts-per-million basic DCV and 800-parts-per-million basic ACV one-year accuracies and inputs up to 200 volts.

The M9181A DMM is compatible with PXI, PXI Hybrid and CompactPCI instrument mainframes, including Agilent’s PXI chassis & accessories.

The M9181A PXI DMM is a complementary member to our high-speed family of PXI DMMs providing a lower cost solution for basic measurements,” said Gary Whitman, vice president and general manager of System Products Division, Agilent.
Like our market-leading family of bench and system DMMs, this new PXI DMM delivers trustworthy results that today’s test industry demands,” Whitman added.

Each PXI DMM ships with a full suite of software to enable easy system integration regardless of what software environment end-users have on their PCs. An intuitive software front panel enables DMM setup, measurement and system troubleshooting without programming.

The DMMs include IVI-COM, IVI-C and LabVIEW G-drivers that are compatible with C++, Visual Basic, LabVIEW, and many other PC software environments.

Agilent Technologies recently signed a research sponsoring agreement with Amrita University, India for one year. Agilent will also provide consumables valued at $10,000 and extensive service
and support during the contract period.

In exchange, Amrita University will let Agilent use the lab facility as a demo and training centre for customers. Amrita University has agreed to collaborate with Agilent’s Life Sciences Center India in Bangalore by sharing samples and by providing expert support for developing application solutions and joint publications.
