Resolution & Accuracy per Range

Range Resolution Accuracy / Offset
(18° - 28° , 0 - 70% RH)*
2 nA 100 fA 0.5 +/- %   +500 fA
20 nA 1 pA 0.5 +/- %   +3 pA
200 nA 10 pA 0.4 +/- %   +20 pA
2 uA 100 pA 0.4 +- %   +200 pA
20 uA 1 nA 0.4 +/- %   +2 nA
200 uA 10 nA 0.4 +/- %   +20 nA
2 mA 100 nA 0.4 +/- %   +200 nA

*Temperature Coefficient: 0°–18°C & 28°–50°C. For each °C, add 0.1 × (% rdg + offset) to accuracy spec.


Voltage Burden

Voltage Burden is less than 26µV + (3.2 * I), where 26µV is the offset voltage specification of the input op-amp, 3.2 is the resistance of the fuse in ohms, and I is the current flowing into the instrument.
