Keysight DAQ970A Data Acquisition (DAQ) System

The DAQ970A Data Acquisition System by Keysight is a successor of the well-known 34970A and 34972A. The next-generation data acquisition (DAQ) system is a mainframe with up to three out of eight updated plug-in modules. Use one of the intuitive interfaces of the DAQ, like: Keysight BenchVue DAQ software, the graphical front panel with task oriented, self-guiding menus, or the integrated web browser.

Key specs at a glance:

  • Advanced 6½ digit internal DMM with improved accuracy and faster measurement speed.
  • Multiple format displays (number, bar, meter, trend chart, and histogram) to easily monitor measurement results.
  • Ability to measure very low current ranges (1 μA DC and 100 μA AC) and higher resistance range (1000 MΩ).
  • Measures and converts 12 different input signals: temperature with thermocouples, RTDs and thermistors; AC/DC volts; 2- and 4-wire resistance; frequency and period; AC/DC current and capacitance.
  • New auto-calibration for compensating internal drifts caused by time and temperature changes.
  • 3497XA programming compatibility.


  • All modules have been updated to have improved switching speeds and accuracies.
  • NEW DAQM900A solid state multiplexer with a scan rate speed of up to 450 channels/sec.
  • LAN and USB for easy connectivity to your PC.

What is in the DAQ970A?

Keysight took the benchtop DMM 34465A, striped it down to the measurement engine and built a 3-slot mainframe around it. With its well-known measurement performance, you now have universal inputs with a built-in signal conditioning and all available in a modular, flexible and compact data acquisition package.

In Detail:

The DAQ970A features 6½ digits (22 bits) of resolution with ultra-low reading noise and a basic DCV accuracy of 0.004%. Used with the new updated modules you can achieve scan rates of up to 450 channels/sec, now you have anything you need to get the job done right the first time.

Acquiring your Data, easy as never before

Access the DAQ970A over a standard web browser. Use the DAQ970A and its built-in Gigabit LAN interface and benefit of a graphical web interface for easy configuration of measurements and monitoring of results.

Run the DAQ970A as standalone system, with the featured built-in USB memory port, and log your data directly on a mounted USB flash drive. Either to extend the internal memory, or copy the data to transfer it to a computer in another location.
