Product Overview

The Keysight (formerly Agilent) 34970A data acquisition/data logger switch is a compact, economical, one-box solution for data logging, data acquisition, and general-purpose switching and control applications.

The 34970A is a full-featured, three-slot data acquisition mainframe that includes a built-in 6.5-digit DMM and can operate as a stand-alone device. Its 50,000 readings of non-volatile memory holds data even when power is off.

Each channel measures up to 11 different functions, eliminating the need for additional signal conditioning accessories. The screw-terminal connections remove the need for terminal blocks. The module 34901A comes with a built-in thermocouple reference and 20 two-wire channels.

You can use eight optional plug-in modules to create a compact data logger, full-featured data acquisition system, or a low-cost switching unit. The unique relay maintenance feature counts every closure on every switch for easy, predictable relay maintenance.
