High measurement accuracyCapacitance, inductance and impedance basic accuracy is an excellent ±0.05%. Dissipation factor accuracy is ±0.0005 and the quality factor accuracy is ±0.05%.Variable drive and bias levelsAC drive levels up to 1V or 20mA can be selected to evaluate components in realistic operating environments.The /D1 DC bias option provides 0 to +40V dc bias voltage and 0 to +100mA dc bias current while the /D2 option provides -40V to +40V dc bias voltage.External controlThe GPIB interface is used to control the instrument and read back measured values for applications such as quality control or for archiving purposes.An Ethernet interface similarly allows the instrument to be controlled and to send out data - allowing it to be integrated into many test environments.Wide range of interfacesAn external monitor or projector may be connected to the instrument's VGA output. The ability to provide a large screen display is invaluable in production environments or for teaching and training.Instrument control from both a keyboard and mouse is available. Any keyboard or mouse, with either PS/2 or USB interfaces, can be simply connected to provide an alternative method of instrument control and operation.Data storage and retrievalAll measurement and setup data can be stored using the Ethernet interface or a USB flash memory (supplied as standard).Setup dataUp to 20 instrument setups may be stored locally.Bin handlingThe /B1 option (non-isolated 5V) or /B2 option (isolated 24V) signals are available through a 25-way D-type connector. 10 bins can be set using absolute or percentage limits.Printer outputsHard copy printouts can be obtained in a number of ways including direct to an HP-PCL compatible graphics printer or Epson compatible text/ticket printer. A networked  HP-PCL compatible printer may also be used via Ethernet connection.Component connectionsFour front panel BNC connectors permit three or four terminal connections with the screens at ground potential.The 1J1011 component fixture, supplied as standard, ensures optimum performance when measuring a wide range of components of leaded components and devices.1J1012 (2 Terminal) and 1J1014 (4 Terminal) fixtures allow connection to surface mount devices.Protection against charged capacitorsHigh precision measuring instruments can be damaged by charged capacitors which can cause costly repairs and unacceptable downtime. All the models in the range incorporate protection against charged capacitors.Comprehensive and precise component tests at higher frequenciesThe 6500P series capabilities are best summarised by “Comprehensive and precise component tests at higher frequencies”. The instruments are the perfect solution for those who have demanding component measurement needs.
