- Sub-picoamp offset current
- Maintains current path for unselected channel
- BNC connectors
- For use with Models 7001 and 7002
The Keithley 7158 10-Channel Low-Current Scanner Card w/BNC Connectors provides quality low-current switching at an affordable price. The offset current error generated is specified less than 1pA, with typical performance at less than 30fA. When used with a voltage source and electrometer or picoammeter, this card can easily automate insulation resistance tests, reverse leakage tests on semiconductor junctions, or gate leakage tests on FETs.
The 7158 is designed to maintain the current path even when the channel is deselected. Input connectors are BNC for shielding of the sensitive measurements and for compatibility with low noise coaxial cables such as Keithley accessory cables 4801 and 4803. Two outputs are provided to allow for chaining several scanner cards to one measurement instrument, and an isolation relay in the output HI minimizes interaction between cards.
