498 Hybrid AC Current Pre-amplifier-DC Nanoammeter Module

  • 498 modular hybrid AC current pre-amplifier-DC nanoammeter unit

In the AC mode, the 498 is deployed as a pre-amplifier for lock-in amplifiers employing current source detectors, i.e. photomultipliers and photodiodes.

In DC mode, the 498 nanoammeter represents the main detection electronic. Offering short-circuit detector operation and an impressive six decades of gain, wide dynamic range measurements with excellent linearity can be realised.

The 498 can be operated from the front panel or fully automated over the USB interface. Over-load and under-load flags are included to enhance optimal remote operation.
