Offering fast measurement speed and outstanding performance at both low and high impedance ranges, the E4980A is the ultimate tool for general R&D and manufacturing test of components and materials. LAN, USB, and GPIB PC connectivity enhances your design and test productivity. For materials measurements, the E4980A with the N1500A-005/006 materials measurement suite provides ease-of-measurements, from setting-up fixtures to report generation.
Accurately LCR Meter
The E4980A is a 2 MHz LCR Meter from Agilent. An LCR meter is a piece of electronic test equipment that measures inductance (L), capacitance (C), and resistance (R) of electronic components. The LCR meter accurately measures these elements on an electronic device, usually one subjected to an alternating current (AC) voltage source. The LCR meter measures the current through and the voltage across the device under test.
Agilent E4980A Features:
- 20 Hz to 2 MHz, with 4-digit resolution in any range
- Standard configuration includes Option 200 – DC resistance measurement
- 0.05% basic accuracy with superior measurement repeatability at low and high impedance
- High-speed measurements up to 5.6 ms
- Measurement parameters: |Z|, |Y|, θ, R, X, G, B, L, C, D, Q, Rdc, Idc, VDC
- 20 Vrms test signal
- Built-in 40V DC Bias
- 40 A DC support with the Keysight Agilent HP 42841A Bias Current Source
- 201 points list sweep
- GPIB, USB, LAN (LXI-C)
The Agilent E4980A offers the industry’s highest accuracy and repeatability from 20 Hz to 2 MHz, fast measurement speed, and outstanding performance at both low and high impedance. As a follow-up to Agilent HP’s market-leading 4284A, the compact Agilent E4980A includes a modern PC interface and is five times faster, resulting in enhanced productivity and a lower cost of test.
The unit’s high speed (5.6 ms at 1 MHz) improves test throughput and increases production yields, allowing manufacturers to make lower-cost devices. And the meter’s support for LAN, USB, and GPIB, as well as powerful test signal support (20 Vrms signal, 40 V DC bias), makes it easier to manage multiple instrument setups and improves data collection time.
Additional features built into the Agilent E4980A include support for 40 A DC bias current source for conducting highly accurate and efficient DC current-biased inductance measurements, a DC resistance/voltage/ current measurement readout for performing simultaneous evaluations of DC characteristics, and 10 V DC source output port for evaluating three-terminal devices.
For users that do not require the ultimate measurement speed in a short length of time, the economical Agilent E4980A with option 005 is available. This version offers the same level of accuracy only with 2 to 5 times less speed than the standard model, yet it is still faster than the Agilent 4284A. For testing power inductors and transformers, choose Option 002, 42841A, and 42842A to get up to 20 A DC bias current.
