Having listened to customer feedback, we've added several new features to our Source Measure Unit for improved practicality and user experience. As a result, the X200 Source Measure Unit was born!
If you want to set voltages and measure currents in your experiments, but don't have any programming knowledge (or just wish there was a simpler and faster way to collect data), then the redesigned X200 Source Measure Unit is perfect for your needs!
In the short video above, Dr. Nick Scarratt explains and demonstrates some of the X200's key feature upgrades, in comparison to its predecessor (the X100).
Upgrades & Improvements
Sleek, durable casing: The Source Measure Unit is now fully encased in a static-free metal casing, which protects the internal circuitry.
Outstanding simplicity: With a new easy-to-use PC software included, you can utilise the Source Measure Unit's basic functionality - without needing any programming knowledge!
Easier, integrated user control: You can now adjust the range switches via the PC Software - no need for manual adjustment on the circuit board! The software interface shows you a live feed of the 4 different measurement channels, which can be adjusted and monitored in real-time.
Range capacities doubled: Compared to the X100, the X200's current and accuracy range limits have increased by up to twice as much (full details coming soon).
Convenient BNC connector positioning: The connectors have been rearranged in a sequence that helps reduce the likeliness of your cables getting tangled.
Intelligently change range: If you are a more advanced user, you can take advantage of the new 'autorange' function to programmatically change ranges based upon measured current.
