Research picoammeter with Wifi

ILT5000-P from International Light Technologies

The ILT5000-P Picoammeter brings sensitive electrical current measurement capabilities into the 21st century with its broad dynamic range, multi-unit monitoring software and advanced auto-ranging capabilities.

The ILT5000-P Stand-Alone Picoammeter boasts a very broad dynamic range from 1 mA to 100 fA with 1 fA of resolution. The built in Accuspan™ control software eliminates harmful /error inducing range changing spikes and samples at a rapid rate of over 50,000 samples per second. The picoammeter silently changes from femtoamps to milliamps with no clicking sounds, no dials and no range buttons to change. Accuspan can be set to automatic, or fixed ranges using the programmable controls in Datalight II.

  • Measures negative DC current femtoamps, picoammps, nanoamps, microamps, milliamps
  • Picoammeter Range: 100 fA - 1 mA (calibrated 1pA - 1mA)
  • Picoammeter current logging and graphing software included
  • Automatic or programmable current sampling rates
  • N.I.S.T. Traceable ISO 17025 accredited calibration and certification

Further information


The ILT5000-P comes with DataLight II software, a complementary basic Labview DLL and 5 versions of
software including: CLI, BAR, TREND, DATALOG and the ALL NEW METERS app. designed to cover a wide
range of applications.


Designed to maintain the look and feel of the industry standard ILT1700 research radiometer. Designed for wireless use with windows 8 tablets and touch screen computers, the larger, user-friendly panel includes buttons for hold, zero, integrate, factor, range, average and units selection.

Note: The ILT5000-P is backwards compatible with the ILT1700 “D” type sensors, as well as all of ILT’s vast supporting filters, input optics, integrating spheres and ISO 17025/NIST traceable calibrations.


Records all six parameters while displaying the trend over time for the user switchable parameter. Multiple examples of trend can be run simultaneously to allow multi-unit comparisons. Trend also has a user-friendly calibration feature.


Allows multisystem, datalogging and displays the user switchable parameter in a bar graph. The expandable graph can accommodate up to 32 systems simultaneously with use of hub(s). User can enter nicknames for each unit to define the location, application, version, serial number, etc. Customer can program max and min warning levels and use color coded bar responses for easy troubleshooting.


CLI is a very basic command line interface program that allows customer to type commands from the API and record readings into the device memory.


Datalog is a user interface that allows remote ”set it and forget it” datalogging.

All software is provided with an open source (MIT) license for ease of customization. A full version API is also available.
