The Keithley 196 System DMM is a five function autoranging~ digital multimeter. At 6 1/2 digit resolution, the LED display can display +-3,030,000 counts. The range of this analog-to-digital (A/D) converter is greater than the normal l,999,999 A/D converter used in many 6 1/2 digit DMMs. The built-in IEEE-488~ interface makes the instrument fully programmable over the IEEE-488 bus.
