Keithley 428 configuration

Keithley 428 is a amplificator that converts fast, small currents to a voltage, which can be easily digitized or displayed by an oscilloscope, waveform analyzer, or data acquisition system.

It cannot measure a current, just change the gain of the amplifier which can be read via a V2F and a P201.
