An external scanner, such as the Keithley 7000 Series switch control units equipped with Model 7168 cards optimized for nanovolt switching, may be used with the model 2182.
With a single differential input channel and a fixed gain of 64x in the high-performance chopper-stabilized instrumentation amplifier, noise performance is a very low 12 nanovolts per root hertz at 0.
Critical noise errors are limited to 17 nanovolts per root-Hertz in the CS3003 and CS3004 (22 nanovolts per root-Hertz in the CS3013/CS3014), which is held flat above 2 kHz bandwidth.
