Equipment information:

Keithley 580 Digital multimeter
Model: 580
Date: 1985
Category: Measurement instruments
Group: Digital multimeter
Description: Micro-ohmmeter
                                    The Model 580 Micro-ohmmeter combines high
accuracy, resolution, and sensitivity with three special
capabilities that make micro-ohm measurements
easier and more versatile than ever:
1. When measuring contact and connector resistances,
it is important not to puncture oxides
and films that may have formed. The Model 580
ensures this dry-circuit condition by clamping
the open-circuit test voltage to 20mV on the
200mΩ, 2Ω, and 20Ω ranges when the 20mV
MAX button is pressed.
2. The Model 580 can test more devices by
enabling both test current polarity and waveform
(DC or pulsed) to be selected. When
using pulsed test current, the Model 580 automatically
compensates for thermoelectric EMFs.
Tests on inductive devices are best performed
using DC test current, as this avoids the effects
of time constants on pulsed current resistance
measurements. For temperature-sensitive
components, a single trigger mode of operation
minimizes power delivered to the device.
3. The optional IEEE-488 bus interface permits
operation as a stand-alone unit as well as in a
PC-based system.
