X1-RM multimeter from Gigahertz-Optik

November 25, 2011  By Gigahertz-Optik

gigahertzGigahertz-Optik’s X1-RM Multimeter is a rack-mountable version of the X1 series hand-held universal optometer for use with a wide variety of detector types. It combines a powerful microprocessor and electronics in a rack-mountable module for integration into standard 19-inch rack-mount housings.

A unique feature of the X1-RM is its capability to operate up to four
photodiode detectors with all four signals displayed on its four line
display with on/off backlighting. The X1-RM is compatible with most
Gigahertz-Optik light detector heads for flexible use over a wide range
of radiometric, photometric and colorimetric measurement applications.

The X1-RM 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 per cent. The four signal
inputs operate in multiplex mode with one amplifier. Four additional
analog voltage input channels enables the X1-RM to control signals of
additional detectors like temperature sensors for example.

Manual operation of the X1-RM 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.


Operating mode, detector selection and measurement parameter is accomplished by menu function using the front panel buttons.

The X1-RM also offers remote control operation via its USB, RS485 or RS232 interface (slave mode).
In both manual and USB remote mode the X1-RM can also forward commands
to Gigahertz-Optik LPS series lamp power supplies via its RS484

X1-RM firmware is stored in flash-memory allowing simple firmware
update via the USB-Interface without loss of the calibration data. The
device is powered by 6 – 20 volt DC.

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