How do you know that the Datron 4000 requires an option to output current
and ohms? From looking at the limited specifications that are available
online it appears that no additional options are called out and that all
4000/A units have DC V, I and ohms. This Datron multifunction calibrator
shopping experience has been a very frustrating one thus far. I feel that
no matter how much research I do, I get conflicting information and end up
spending thousands on units that lack the capabilities I need. :( not fun...
