Measure with unquestioned Truevolt confidence
Worry about the quality of your design, not the quality
of your measurements
In a rack or on a bench real-world signals are never flat. They have some level
of AC signal riding on top from power line noise, other environmental noise, or
injected current from the meter itself. How well your meter deals with these
extraneous factors and eliminates them from the true measurement makes a big
difference to your accuracy. Behind the scenes, Agilent’s Truevolt technology
accounts for measurement errors created by these real-world factors so you can
be confident in your measurements and it is only available on Agilent DMMs.
Truevolt technology starts with an analog-to-digital converter that enables a
patented metrology-grade architecture. Using this architecture, Agilent delivers
a good balance of measurement resolution, linearity, accuracy, and speed at a
value price, all derived and guaranteed per ISO/IEC 17025 industry standards.

Measure with unquestioned Truevolt confidence
What Truevolt technology means to you:
You can measure your real-world signals,
not instrument error
Noise and injected current: Agilent Truevolt DMMs contribute less than
30% of the injected current than alternatives. Compared to some lower cost
alternatives, Truevolt DMMs offer almost 100% less noise.

You can measure your real-world signals with confidence
All Truevolt DMM specifications are tested and guaranteed for compliance
with ISO/IEC 17025 standards so you can prove the effectiveness
of your lab or production line’s quality management system.
Many lo
lower-cost DMMs in this class do not carry a guarantee

Input bias current: Ideally, no current flows into the measurement terminals
of your DMM. In real measurement situations, there are always input currents
creating additional measurement errors. Truevolt DMMs take care of input bias
current. Some alternative DMMs offer 20% to infinitely poorer performance
(some are too noisy to measure).
Compared to the 34401A DMM, Truevolt DMMs offer expanded
current ranges from 100 µA to 10 A. We have also added a temperature measurement function (RTD/PT100, 5 kΩ thermistor).
Additionally, diode measurement capability has been expanded
to allow a larger full-scale voltage to be measured (5 V) to
enable the measurement of more diode types such as LEDs.

Digital AC rms measurements: For meters in this class, only Agilent uses
digital direct sampling techniques to make AC rms measurements. This results
in a true rms calculation technique that avoids the slower response of analog
RMS converters used in all other vendor’s 6½ digit DMMs. This allows for
crest factors up to 10 without additional error terms. This is a unique, patented
technique – only used by Agilent.
Crest factor: the ratio of the
peak value to the RMS value
of a waveform

Like most 34401A DMM owners, you rely on your
DMM and you trust the answers it gives you. Now,
with the Agilent Truevolt 34461A DMM, you can
get all of the advantages of the 34401A and more.
Now you can get faster answers and have even
more confidence in your results.
The best news of all? You can migrate from the
34401A to the 34461A without a hassle. No need
to rewrite your software programs or spend hours
learning a brand-new, complicated interface.
Use your existing programs: The 34461A
DMM is the industry’s only 100% drop-in, SCPIcompatible replacement for the 34401A DMM.
Other DMMs may claim 34401A SCPI compatibility, but only a subset of SCPI commands are
implemented.
MIGRATION Q&A
QUESTION
ANSWER
Program
compatibility
Will my existing programs still work
if I switch to the 34461A?
YES
Measurements
Will I have the same performance so it
doesn’t affect the results on my line?
YES
Cost
Will it cost the same to buy, use,
maintain, and repair?
YES (and potentially less since
the DMMs now include a 3-year
standard warranty)
Reliability
My 34401A never breaks. Are the
Truevolt DMMs going to be as good?
YES That’s why we can offer
a 3-year standard warranty
Use
Will we be able to use it easily? Quickly?
YES
No long learning curve: The Truevolt DMMs
were designed by the same team that created the
34401A. The team kept 34401A measurements,
reliability and familiarity in mind as they created the
Truevolt family of DMMs. So you can use it without
spending hours learning how.
The 34461A represents everything you have known
and trusted with your Agilent DMM measurements
for decades – it just keeps getting stronger.

Frequency and period
Measurement method:
Measurement settling considerations
ACV, ACI, Frequency, Period
Default delays are selected to give first reading right for most measurements. Errors will
occur when attempting to measure the frequency or period of an input following a DC
offset voltage change. The input blocking RC time constant must be allowed to fully settle
(up to 1 second) before the most accurate measurements are possible.
Applying >300 V ACrms or >1 Arms will cause self-heating in signal-conditioning components. These errors are included in the instrument specifications. Internal temperature
changes due to self-heating may cause additional error on other functions or ranges.
The additional error will generally dissipate within a few minutes.
DCV, DCI, Resistance
Applying >1 A DC will cause self-heating in signal-conditioning components. These errors
are included in the instrument specifications. Internal temperature changes due to selfheating may cause additional error on other functions or ranges. The additional error will
generally dissipate within a few minutes.
Reading settling times are affected by source impedance, cable dielectric characteristics,
and input signal changes. Agilent recommends the use of PTFE or other high-impedance,
low-dielectric absorption wire insulation for these measurements.
AC crest factor and peak input
Crest factor:
10:1 maximum crest factor, (3:1 at full-scale). Measurement
bandwidth limited to 300 kHz for signal plus harmonics.
Peak input:
300% of range or maximum input
Overload ranging :
Will select higher range if peak input overload is detected
during auto range. Overload is reported in manual ranging.
