Can someone tell me if the Keithley 590 CV analyser be used as a LCR meter in the sense that a frequency scan can be done?
I need to do a frequency scan using the 590 CV analyser but only two static frequencies are available on the meter, which are 100 kHz and 1 MHz.

The 590 is an ancient and simple CV meter, and its not capable of doing frequency scans but only reading CV at two distinct frequencies; 100kHz and 1MHz.
You should consult the manual here for full details - https://www.tek.com/manual/model-590-cv-analyzer-instruction-manual-rev-d-197mb
Keithley doesn't seem to make modern stand-alone LCR meters, but Keysight does - https://www.keysight.com/en/pc-1000000391%3Aepsg%3Apgr/lcr-meters-impedance-measurement-products?cc=...

Thank you for your reply.
Yes, I did look into the manual and I didn't find anywhere if it can do frequency scan.
I am actually trying to measure interstrip capacitance of silicon sensors and I can't seem to figure out how to do the frequency scans.
I'll have a look at the LCR meter you recommended, thanks
