The Model 3706A-NFP system switch with high performance digital multimeter (DMM) without front panel display and keypad contains six slots for plug-in cards in a compact 2U high (3.5 inches/89mm) enclosure that easily accommodates the needs of medium to high channel count applications. When fully loaded, a mainframe can support up to 576 two-wire multiplexer channels for unrivaled density and economical per channel costs. The high performance multimeter provides a tightly integrated switch and measurement system that meets the demanding application requirements in a functional test system or provides the flexibility needed in stand-alone data acquisition and measurement applications.

To provide users with greater versatility when designing test systems, the Series 3700A mainframes are equipped with many standard features. For example, easy connectivity is supported with three remote interfaces: LXI/Ethernet, General Purpose Interface Bus (GPIB), and Universal Serial Bus (USB). Fourteen digital I/O lines are also included, which are programmable and can be used to control external devices such as component handlers or other instruments. Additionally, system control can be greatly enhanced by using our Test Script Processor (TSP) technology. This technology provides “smart” instruments with the ability to perform distributed processing and control at the instrument level versus a central PC.
