The HP-3457A is capable of post-processing measurements with up to thirteen Math functions, including Extended Resolution that allows resolving up to 7-1/2 digit readings.
Another powerful feature of this instrument is the built-in, user-accessible Auto-Calibration routines that maintain optimum accuracy; just press a couple of front-panel buttons to perform Auto-Calibrations.
The HP-3457A has both front and rear terminal connections that can be used to measure 2- and 4-Wire Ohms, Voltage, Current, Frequency and perform Reference Measurements between two sources. Front and rear input is easily selected from the front panel or through HP-IB. The HP-IB interface is located at the right of the rear panel.
The HP-3457A does not need a cooling fan, so the instrument is quiet and pleasure to use.
This HP-3457A is even equipped with new, quality, screw-on rubber feet (no stick-ons!) to keep it your multimeter from sliding around during testing.
A similar instrumentation setup was used to calibrate this HP-3457A. Calibration requires several hundred steps and more than 1000 operator inputs. Needless to say, this can take several hours for a technician to complete and is susceptible to human error. By using an HP-85 and our custom calibration software, we ensure that each step is performed in the right sequence and with the correct calibration inputs. In addition, the HP-85 provides a permanent printed record of the process.
This HP-3457A is fully refurbished, 100% operational, and comes with a 30-day warranty against malfunctions. Unit includes HP-IB (GP-IB) and front and rear terminal connections. Complete with HP User & Service Manuals on CD. Unit is in excellent electronic and cosmetic condition.
