NEWBURYPORT, Mass., Nov. 30, 2011 — Gigahertz-Optik Inc.’s X1-RM multimeter, a rack-mountable version of the X1 series handheld universal optometer, can be used with a variety of detectors. It combines a powerful microprocessor and electronics for integration into standard 19-in. housings.

The multimeter can operate up to four photodiode detectors, with all four signals displayed on its four-line display with on/off backlighting. It is compatible with most of the company’s light detector heads for flexible use over a wide range of radiometric, photometric and colorimetric measurement applications.

It provides a high linear current-to-voltage-to-current amplifier, with seven manually or automatically selected gain ranges. The maximum error within this wide dynamic range is 0.2%. The four signal inputs operate in multiplex mode with one amplifier. Four additional analog voltage input channels enable the X1-RM to control signals of additional detectors such as temperature sensors.

Gigahertz-Optik says that manual operation is simple. Once set up, all settings are stored and recalled on next power-up unless reprogrammed. Measurement values are displayed in absolute quantities for the particular detector connected.

Front panel buttons (the menu function) control the operating mode, detector selection and measurement parameters. Remote control operation is possible via a USB, RS-485 or RS-232 interface (slave mode).

In both manual and USB remote modes, the multimeter can forward commands to the company’s LPS series lamp power supplies via its RS-484 interface.

Firmware is stored in flash memory, enabling simple update via the USB interface, without loss of calibration data. The device is powered by a 6- to 20-VDC supply.

Private label versions with custom design firmware and/or detectors designed to individual OEM customer specifications are available.
