    This is used in a MI 5010 programmable multifunction interface.
    The 50M10 Analog Measurement Card (A/D Converter) is able to measure analog voltage in four ranges: 100mV, 1V, 10V, 100V. Unlike traditional integrating digital millimeters, the 50M10ís short 400nsec aperture time enables the measurement of voltages which hold their value for short time intervals. A Guard signal at the input connector can drive guard conductors adjacent to the input signal conductor. TTL compatible front panel control lines permit the 50M10 conversions to be triggered or gated.

    Conversion Results Available over GPIB or Front-Panel Connector.
