Various features and options make the VI-700 an effective choice for many manual and programmable voltage and current source applications.

The VI-700 Voltage and Current Source is a versatile precision dialable or remotely programmable voltage and current source. Its three ranges provide up to 20 V full scale (200 V with the HV option), and down to 100 mV resolution; and 20 mA full scale down to 0.1mA resolution. Both voltage and current outputs are available simultaneously. The output is set by a range selector and thumbwheel switches in the LOCAL mode, or by a digital input at the rear panel. The REMOTE mode control can be a RS232 or IEEE-488 interface.

This voltage and current source offers many full performance features; fulfilling a variety of laboratory needs. Its wide outputrange (up to 200 V), very low output impedance (5 mΩ, typical), low noise and ripple, and 200 mA load current capability suit the VI-700 to a variety of applications, such as simulation, calibration, A/D andD/A converter evaluations, and product development.  Front panel overload indicator lamps warn of exceeding voltage load or current compliance limits. This feature assures the user that the output is within specifications without having to make any measurement or computations.
