DMM provides numerical and graphical displays

The DMM (digital multimeter) is a basic measurement tool for nearly every electrical engineer and many other engineers. With the push to constantly improve power efficiency in electronic designs comes a need to not only measure voltage and current, but to dynamically see them as well. Keithey’s DMM7510 combines a 7½-digit DMM with an 18-bit, 1 Msample/s digitizer, which lets you see measurements both numerically and graphically.

Having the ability to see waveforms lets you uncover problems that used to require an oscilloscope. The DMM7510 also features a 5-in. capacitive touch screen. You can use gestures such as swipes and pinches to sweep though setup menus or zoom in or out of waveforms. I tried it firsthand just prior to today’s product launch, as the short video below shows.

Because it’s a DMM, the DMM7510 lets you make the measurements you expect from a bench or system meter. Measurements include:

  • DC and AC voltage and current
  • Two-wire and four-wire resistance
  • Capacitance
  • Frequency and period
  • Temperature (thermocouple, thermistor, and RTD—3 and 4 wire)
