DIY Metrology Oil Bath for Standard Resistors

<< < (8/8)

In "Long term characterization of voltage references" they used "...a bath of perfluoropolyther heat transfer fluid (Galden HT 110) which has a high resistance (about 10e15  ? · cm) and a low viscosity (hence a good temperature homogeneity). This configuration also prevents any influence of the hygrometry and reduces the thermo-electric voltages at the soldered junctions on the electronics boards...".

Very nice :-+
The markings on the second photo, was is laser engraving?
One small thing about arranging 4W is a straight line is it won't allow current pair and sense pair at the same time, and a standard ‘wind screen’ won't fit, of course that situation may rare to happen.

I have some photo of real oil bath from web.

The markings are engraved. The front panel is from schaeffer-ag.de. Not cheap, but quite convenient. Not cost efficient for multiples.

Where did you get that enclosure? And what is the part number or series of the Vishay resistors you used?

The case is from a Wandel & Goltermann instrument, very distinctive. Possibly from a PDA3 or DF64
