MTX 3240 – MTX 3250 Efficiency displayed with elegance An attractive structure and a shape that makes room The MTX family's appealing and modern design, which is especially compact, will fit perfectly into your workspace. Placed directly on a counter top, their design leaves room in front of them. Their height has been calculated so they fit nicely in half-shelf spaces. Having a standard length and not very deep, they can be placed on top of another instrument. Since they have a built-in handle and are light in weight, these instruments are easy to displace and carry. Even at a distance or in poor light (sun, neon), the measurements are perfectly readable, perfectly legible thanks to its large (50 x 140 mm), dark background display and adjustable led-matrix backlighting as well as the exceptional height of the main display (20 mm). Situated on the front panel, the operations zones are large, coherent, and organized; and the measurement connections are easily accessible. Primary functions are selected directly with keys that are marked with their function and a led. A high-performance encoder makes it possible to make settings, and contextual keys located at the edge of the screen clearly show the configuration.

With the latest 16-bit microprocessor, a downloadable software and a 100% digital calibration, these instruments are smart too. As for safety, a resettable electronic protection eliminates the need for the mains fuse. Generator-Measurer MTX 3240 Multimeter-Analyzer MTX 3250 The MTX 3240 and MTX 3250 are available in their programmable version using an insulated and rapid RS232 optical interface, guaranteeing the complete safety for the user and associated equipment. Even the selection keyboard is the latest in technology with its microswitch contacts that have an exceptionally long life span: more than 100,000 maneuvers. The markings on the keys are made with permanent laser engraving. So smart, you can choose them just for their looks! With the MTX family, Metrix makes it possible for each professional to access instruments which are the best of the best.

Also for recording up to 4 channels and 12 parameters in the laboratory, the “data logger” version of this multi-purpose instrument offer highperformance service with its associated PC software. All the members of the MTX Compact family have the same heritage: they have attractive and ergonomic stature, are highly intelligent and good natured, yet show much character in their respective roles. A generator with innovative features Its advanced technology allows each user to benefit from its new, yet essential functions: Associated features Frequency settings - guarantees stability to the nearest digit, and intelligent accelerator - with automatic range change for frequency A multimeter at the leading edge of modes Another advantage of these innovations: full functionality for the user's investment. The MTX 3240's associated features give it stand-alone implementation which means that, when simply testing settings, one can avoid the systematic use of an oscilloscope or multimeter. Frequency control loop and display AMPLITUDE vpp (peak/peak) and OFFSET VDC check and display Duty cycle check and display The MTX 3240 is also a rational investment for it is also a 100 MHz frequency meter (Cat. I, 300 V), which means that it is not necessary to purchase an instrument that one doesn't use that often. Automatic range changing optimized for “LEVEL and OFFSET” amplitude Duty cycle adjustable without varying or dividing the frequency For metrology control, the “SPEC” Mode calculates and displays the instrument's uncertainties according to the ranges and the measured value And in order to meet the user's expectations of automated systems in an economical way, a 100% programmable version of this generator exists via a rapid, SCPIcompatible link. “LOGIC” function for a fast and simple answer to generating logic signals with directly adjustable thresholds A robust generator with protected 60 VDC / 40 VAC outputs It all begins with a connection reduced to 3 terminals which limits maneuvers and errors and allows complete current “AUTORANGING” between 50 µA and 20 A. Then with its 3-way display, the MTX 3250 gives measurement combinations that meet current applications simply and efficiently, as for example, bandwidth measurement (attenuation in dB and frequency display). “RELATIVE” Mode, expressed in absolute, percentage or dB (ratio), makes direct operations Associated features Like the generator of the same family, the MTX multimeter is an exceptional, multifunctional device. Thanks to its signal analysis, there is no need for the user to use other instruments (an oscilloscope for example) when verifying made measurements. Temperature is measured directly starting from Pt 100 or Pt 1000, and in the same way that frequency is measured, up to 1 MHz, with period and duty cycle. Impossible to make errors, which are so frequent and yet often ignored, due to very high crest factor. In fact, the MTX 3250 measures rapid peaks at 500 µs non-stop and lets you know when it finds a fault. Better still, when “AUTO PEAK” Mode is validated, the multimeter automatically switches to the range best suited to the type of signal measured. Since crest factor is displayed, one can also make an initial quantitative diagnosis on signals. MTX 3250 in relative mode Mode gives a direct reading of the measured quantity, as well as the corresponding physical unit “Surveillance” Mode records the minima and maxima so to catch and date faults And in order to better meet the users' expectations of automated systems, a 100% programmable version of this instrument exists via a SCPI-compatible, RS232 optical link at 57,600 bauds. The MTX 3250 is a rational investment for it is also a frequency meter, a thermometer and even a logger, which means that it is not SPECIFICATIONS MTX 3240 with built-in frequency meter SPECIFICATIONS Display Frequency range Signal forms Outputs Sweep External frequency Power supply Dimensions meter HxLxW LCD 50 x 140 mm Main display 20 mm 4 variables at a time 0.1 Hz to 5.1 MHz 7 ranges + fine-tuning to the nearest digit + accelerator Accuracy: 0.05 % Sine, square, triangle, pulse, ramp, TTL, LOGIC Distortion < 0.5 % 1)Main: up to 20 Vpp open circuit, automatic range 2) TTL Protection: overload 60 VDC / 40 VAC LIN or LOG CONTINU 1: 50 Min 10 ms to 10 s Internal or external 0.1 Hz to 100 MHz Accuracy: 0.05 % Input 300V, Cat.
