The Keithley 2701/R Digital Multimeter Data Acquisition Data Logging System w/2 Slots, Ethernet Support & Rear Input Locking combines precision measurement, switching, and control in a single, tightly integrated enclosure for either rack-mounted, or for benchtop applications. This cost-effective, high-performance test platform offers an affordable alternative to separate DMMs and switch systems, dataloggers/recorders, plug-in card data acquisition equipment, and VXI/PXI systems. The Integra Series plug-in switching and control modules offer unmatched flexibility and testing efficiency for a wide range of industries and applications. System builders can create test solutions with a combination of channel count, cost per channel, and system performance unmatched by any other, single-box measurement system. The input modules provide the flexibility to vary the channel count from 20 to 200 (2-pole), apply a stimulus to the device under test, route signals, control system components, and make precision measurements with up to 14 functions. Robust digital I/O capabilities can be used for triggering, handshaking with other automation equipment, and alarm limit outputs. Scan rates of up to 500 channels/second (up to 3500 readings/second on a single channel) will increase test productivity.

Fast Setup and Operation

The 2701/R is a fully-integrated, off-the-shelf measurement and control system. Its DMM-like interface makes it easy for users to collect data and/or perform troubleshooting within minutes of installation and startup. Once sensor or DUT leads are hooked to the instrument's input, use the front panel controls to select the measurement function, range, filtering, scaling, trigger source, scanning sequence, alarms, and more. The TestPoint runtime start-up software makes it easy to configure and use the system in a graphical "point-and-click" environment. This gives developers the basic tools necessary to create a simple application without writing program code.

The Advantage of Integrated Design

The 2701/R offers a variety of advantages over existing solutions for ATE and data acquisition applications. For example, its flexible modular architecture and integrated measurement, switching, and control capabilities save rack space by reducing the number of separate instruments needed. This design also simplifies expanding the system as the number of channels grows, or it can be re-purposed as new test requirements evolve. Integrated signal conditioning, scaling, stimulus, filtering and I/O capabilities eliminate the need for external circuitry when designing and building data acquisition systems. The 2701/R provides accuracy and repeatability superior to plugin data acquisition boards, while providing faster test times than typical DMM/switch systems. This makes it possible to combine higher test yields with higher test throughput.


The 2701/R offers a 10/100 BaseT Ethernet connection for high speed and long distance communication between a computer and a virtually infinite number of instruments. Any PC with an Ethernet port can connect to a single Model 2701/R in a point-to-point configuration, to multiple 2701/Rs through a hub, or to multiple 2701/Rs distributed on a network.

The 2701/R Ethernet port uses the industry-standard TCP/IP socket interface. This provides data rates up 100Mbits/sec. and allows the instrument to be located up to 100 meters from the nearest computer or network hub in hardwired systems and miles in wireless Ethernet systems. The maximum distances between a control PC and the instruments are limited only by the size of the network. The instrument also provides a built-in diagnostic web page for easy remote access to the 2701/R. Entering the instrument's IP address in the URL line of Microsoft Internet Explorer will allow communication with and control of the 2701/R. This Web page allows users to read and set network parameters, such as IP address, subnet mask, gateway, MAC address, and calibration dates, and to send commands to and query data from the Model 2701/R.

Web-Enabled Data Acquisition and Control via Standard Ethernet

A built-in 10/100BaseTX Ethernet interface makes the 2701/R the best choice for distributed data acquisition applications that demand stable, high precision measurements. Just connect it directly to an Ethernet port— there's no need for additional interface cards, proprietary cables, or software. The Model 2701/R is a cost-effective solution for industrial monitoring and control applications. It combines remote communications with high measurement precision for research and development tasks, such as remote equipment diagnostics and economical monitoring of lab environments.

Software Solutions

Whether the task calls for a simple start-up package to acquire several channels of data or the tools to create a fully custom acquisition and analysis solution, Keithley has the software needed to get the most performance from a 2701/R Logging System with a broad range of software solutions. This makes it easy to get applications "up & running" quickly and economically.
