Hi Todd,
Something struck me as odd about the *model* number LOM-510A.

When I google the Keithley 580, I see a *paid advert* for an IET Labs


But it looks nothing like the Cambridge LOM-510A on eBay


It seems a bit odd for two manufacturers (IET Labs and Cambridge
Instruments) to both have the exact same model number (LOM-510A) for an
instrument with identical functionality (micro ohms). Yet photographs of
the two instruments show they look similar, but are not identical. The IET
Labs one appears to have a couple of extra switches.

Just to make something appear even more odd, the IET Labs has a link to a
review on EEVblog.


but the picture shows Cambridge Instruments, but the title shows IET Labs.
