Keysight (Agilent/HP) 34980A Multifunction Switch/Measure Unit

Product Documentation


The Keysight (Agilent/HP) 34980A handles system switching up to 26.5 GHz and provides basic measurements and system control. It also offers DMM measurements, counter/ totalizer functionality, digital I/O with pattern capabilities, and analog outputs with basic waveforms— all in one low-cost, compact box. And with its standard connectors and software drivers, computer-standard I/O, and Web browser interface, the 34980A easily integrates into electronic functional test and data acquisition systems.

The Keysight (Agilent/HP) 34980A Multifunction Switch/Measure Unit accommodates up to 8 plug-in modules to give you the flexibility you need. Choose from 21 different modules to define your own configuration. You can buy what you need now and add to it or reconfigure it as your requirements change.

Whether you are measuring temperature, AC or DC voltage, resistance, frequency, current, or custom measurements, the 34980A offers the functionality you need in a single box. Switch in different measurements with high-performance signal switching up to 300V with no external signal conditioning required. Choose between different switch types and topologies with frequency ranges from DC to 26.5 GHz. The Keysight (Agilent/HP) 34980A offers high-density multiplexers for scanning multiple channels, matrices for connecting multiple points at one time, and general purpose switches for simple control and high power needs.

Use the Keysight (Agilent/HP) 34980A to route individual signals or monitor multiple signals over a specified period of time—monitor a single channel or multiple channels, set alarms, and identify irregularities.
