Hewlett Packard 3478A Digital multimeter
Hewlett Packard
Model: 3478A
Date: 1981
Category: Measurement instruments
Group: Digital multimeter
                                    Your new 3478A is a fully programmable HP-IB* digital multimeter.
In an automatic test or on the bench, the 3478A offers 3 1/2 to 5 1/2
digit resolution for measuring dc volts, true RMS ac volts, 2- and 4-
wire ohms, and dc and RMS ac current. The 3478A offers dc voltage
performance from 100 nanovolt sensitivity up to 300 volts (full scale),
true RMS capability up to 300 kHz, and resistance measurements from
100µΩ sensitivity to 30MΩ (full scale). Its dc and true RMS
ac current measuring capability is from 1µA sensitivity up
to 3A. The fast autorange capability of the 3478A allows you
to make measurements over a wide dynamic range without
sacrificing throughput rates.

By selecting the number of digits displayed and using the
autozero feature, the 3478A allows you flexibility in
measurement speed and accuracy. Up to 71 readings per
second can be made with the 3478A in the 3 1/2 digit mode.
The 3478A has a fast trigger mode which lets you bypass the
built-in settling time delay to make fast true RMS ac
measurements in systems applications.
