4342A Agilent Meter

Used

The 4342A is a meter from Agilent. A meter is an instrument used to test and measure alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC) voltage, resistance, RF, electric current, and much more.

Additional Features:

  • Automatic indication of meter scales, frequency dials and frequency multipliers
  • Frequency range from 22 kHz to 70 MHz in seven bands
  • Q range: 5 to 1000 in four ranges
  • Incorporates a direct-reading, expanded scale

The direct-reading expanded scale of the Agilent HP 4342A permits measurement of Q from 5 to 1000 and readings of very small changes in Q resulting from variation in test parameters. The Agilent HP 4342A is solid state with the elimination of specially matched, fragile thermocouple components.

The Agilent HP 4342A will measure dissipation factor and dielectric constant of insulating materials. The Q meter can measure coefficient of coupling, mutual inductance, and frequency response of transformers. RF resistance, reactance, and Q of resistors and capacitors can also be determined.

Pushbutton operation of frequency range and Q/ΔQ range selection provides straightforward measurement. Automatic indication of meter scales, frequency dials and frequency multipliers are featured, adding to simplicity and reading speed.

The Agilent HP 4342A measures dissipation factor and dielectric constant of insulating materials, measures coefficient and frequency response; RF resistance, reactance, and Q of resistors and capacitors can also be determined. The Agilent HP 4342A uses push button operation of frequency range and Q/Delta Q range selection provides straight forward measurement.
