Ordering Info

The PDA-750 is a low noise, high gain, transimpedance amplifier designed to provide a direct digital readout of the current generated from a photodiode photomultiplier, or other similar current source. With full scale input ranges of ± 20 nA to ± 20 mA and a noise level of less than 1 pA, the PDA-750 offers superb dynamic range.

Digital entry of an Amps/Watt setting via the front panel controls permits the instrument to display current measurements in units of Watts. The A/W setting ranges from 1.000 to 0.100. 

A variable bias supply is built into the instrument and may be switched into series with the device under test. It can supply digitally selectable voltages ranging from -14.00 to + 14.00 volts.

The Offset control permits the nulling of background signals as large as ± 200% of the range currently in use.

Rechargeable batteries isolate the unit from the mains and eliminate the effects of ground loops and/or power line noise that may be present during sensitive measurements. They will power the instrument for approximately 10 hours between charges. The unit may be operated normally while the batteries are charging.
