Pulse Instruments PI-720
The Pulse Instruments PI-720 is a programmable bipolar DC source plug-in for the TM500 system.
It consists of two DC sources that are manually adjustable or digitally programmable in the −25 V to +25 V range, and two 4½ digit DVMs with LED displays for measuring the output voltage or load current.
The manual advises that a PI-952 Bidirectional Instrument Coupler is needed for interfacing to GPIB.
|Output voltage||−25 V to +25 V (digital to +24.9878V)|
|Output current||−150 mA to +150 mA|
|Output resolution||11 bit plus sign, 12 mV per step; with option HR, 1 mV (dual channel) or 0.5 mV (channels combined)|
|Output resistance||< 75 mΩ|
|Line regulation||< 5 mV for ±10% change|
|Ripple + Noise||<1.2 mVp-p @ 25 mA, <2 mVp-p @ 150 mA|
Note - for biasing FPAs and CCDs in a multi-channel system, the modern equivalents from Pulse Instruments are:
- PI-41702 Programmable Low-Noise DC Card, ± 8.188 V
- PI-42750 Programmable Low-Noise DC Card, ± 20.47 V
