Agilent 34461A vs Fluke 289 microamps accuracy
« on: January 14, 2014, 09:56:17 pm »
Hello,

I have both of them and was trying to figure out which one to consider 'more accurate'. Agilent is 6.5 digit, did a quick test with a 73K2 0.1% tolerance resistor and a TTI Precision power supply.

Got the following results (unless I screwed computing percentage), seems Agilent is actually a better tool for micro amps, but when do you get to care about that level of precision anyway?

289 max. error at 1µA is 20% of reading
34461A max. error at 1µA is 2.55% of reading  7.8X more accurate on paper.
