The Model Keithley 617 performs four functions: current, resistance, voltage and charge measuremnets. It is capable of detecting currents from 1X1016 to 2X102A and resistances up to 5X1016 Ω. It provides more than 2X1014 Ω input impedance on voltage measurements from 10V to 200 V and can detect charge over a range of 1014 to 2X108C. In addition to standard resistance functions using constant current, the 617s variable voltage source can supply from 50mV to 102V, which can be applied to a resistance and the resulting current or resistance displayed.

The 617s built-in IEEE-488 interface makes all controls programmable. The built-in V-Ω GUARD switch lets you drive the inner shield of the triaxial input cable at guard voltage, minimizing leakage current and time constants. 100-point data storage is also built in, with Min/Max readings available from front panel or bus.
