Gigahertz-Optik Released New X1-RM Rack-Mountable Multimeter

Nov 21, 2011 Gigahertz-Optik launched new X1-RM Multimeter, that 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” 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.

According to press release, 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 %. 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 interface.

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 VDC.
