SR550 - FET input preamplifier

Stanford Research Systems

The SR550 Voltage Preamplifier is designed to work with any SRS lock-in amplifier. Preamplifiers provide gain close to the experimental detector, before the signal-to-noise ratio is permanently degraded by cable capacitance and pickup. The preamplifier minimizes noise and pickup in the connecting lines and reduces measurement time in noise-limited experiments.
