The PM5 is similar to its predecessor the PM4, but has lower noise, improved response, a USB interface instead of RS-232, and open source LabVIEWTM code. The range of the PM5 can be changed manually or by sending commands through the USB interface. The PM5 also offers an autoscaling feature that allows the range to be automatically changed depending on the input power level.
