Alternative to Keithley 225 current source?
« on: July 23, 2013, 11:31:14 am »
I was re-watching some of Dave's old videos - and thought that his Keithley 225 would be a good thing to add to my own lab.

Unfortunately - I can't seem to find any for a decent price(what is a decent price?).

Is there an alternative for a hobby/home lab?  Something used for around $100-$150 would be great.

Any recommendations?

You can get one for that price or less if you are patient.

The most common alternative is an HP 6181B or 6181C.

Try this one: http://bit.ly/15g16tI (ebay link), it just went up for auction.
To be responsible, but never to let fear stop the imagination.

The old HPs are very nice. I have a 6186C and it is a nice piece of gear.
