Adventest R6871E

7 1/2 Digit Lab



Advantest R6871E Digital Multimeter

This digital multimeter provides a great combination of high performance, versatility and ease of use.  It is in Excellent physical and electrical condition.  It comes with a set Kelvin Test Leads with alligator clips and a tri-axial test lead with the opposite end not terminated. The reserve on this item is $599.00

The R6871E series is a 7 1/2 digit multimeter. It is provided with the measurement functions for DC voltage and current, AC voltage and current, and resistance.  The R6871E series provides a sampling rate of up to 2,000 times per second (in the 4 1/2-digit measurement mode), making it possible to change the integral time according to the accuracy required. Up to 10,000 measurement data can be stored in the built-in memory for further numerical operation and/or direct indication.

In addition, the R6871E series has an input impedance of 1010 Ohms or higher over input ranges of up to 20 V, allowing high precision and high-resolution measurement of DC voltage.  When used as a multimeter for a measurement system, the standard GPIB interface exhibits its power for remote control of functions and ranges.



A Single R6871E Incorporates the Measurement Functions for DC Voltage/Current, AC Voltage/Current and Resistance


DC & Ohms Measurements Maximum Display of "19999999"


AC Measurements to 1 Mhz with maximum display of "1999999"


Measuring Rate of Up to 2,000 Times/Second


Powerful Calculation Function Facilitates Data Analysis


Smoothing Function Enables Stable Measurement in Environment Subject to Noise


Multi-Sampling Bulk Output Function


Front and rear inputs and tri-axial low noise current input (rear only).


The multi-sampling bulk output mode allows high-speed data measurement and collection in real-time. The multimeter outputs data while performing measurement in regular intervals (in 10-msec intervals for one seconds) in the 6 1/2 digit display mode.
