Practical Guide to Maximizing DC Measurement Performance
The various methods covered in this guide can help you achieve greater accuracy in your applications requiring DC measurements. When applying these methods to your own measurement setup, remember what kind of error each method is designed to address.
This allows you to apply the right solution to the measurement issue you’re experiencing. For example, if you’re seeing slow rise times in your low-level current measurement, switching to triaxial cables and adding guarding could help. If you’re seeing power line noise, you can add shielding to your setup and set the aperture time to one power line cycle. Mastering these best practices helps you get the most out of your test equipment.
