Keysight / Agilent 6942A Benchtop Multiprogrammer

  • Action-Oriented Instructions
  • Isolated Analog Inputs and Outputs
  • Built-in Self Test
  • Easy to Configure


The 6942A Multiprogrammer interfaces with your controller (desktop or minicomputer) using the HP-IB, Hewlett-Packard's implementation of IEEE Standard 488 and the identical ANSI Standard MC I. I. Data and status readback make use of the extended bus addressing features of the HP-IB.

The mainframe memory of the 6942A will accept up to 76 instructions from the controller at one time. This leaves your controller free for other processing activities while the Multiprogrammer works on the I/O operations. This mainframe memory may also be used to collect up to 1440 data readings and hold them until the controller is free to take them. For even more data storage, 4K Memory Cards, 69790B, may be used to store 4096 16-bit words of input or output data.

The 6942A can be operated with a wide variety of computers, including the HP Series 80, Series 200, Series 1000, 9825, and 9845 computers. Documentation packages are available for all of these computers. Each one contains a User's Guide with programming examples, a utility program tape or flexible disc, operating and service manuals, and a binder to hold this material. One no charge documentation option must be specified to select the documentation appropriate for your computer.

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!
