Method to determine uncertainty of a selfmade or unknown resistance standard?

They do have transfer spec of ohm ranges for HFL version of 3458A.
The spec for 100k is better probably because the measuring voltage is 5V.

And expecting your measurement.

Hi Zlymex,

Good explanation, more logical.. I always thought about this item, that this 0.1ppm is due to the fact, that the 100kOhm range is closer related to the 40k internal resistance.

I already have shown such a T.C. measurement in the 'resistance' thread, maybe I still find that link..


Thanks for all your replies.

I don't need to calibrate 8,5 digit DMMs, only 6,5 digit instruments (34401, 34410, 34465, K2000...).

Could I use this approach for?

Then applying the tolerance of UUT and narrow it by uncertainty of 3458A?

I think, long therm stability and tempco doesn't matter (too much), if I measure the standard resistors every time I need to calibrate a 6,5 digit DMM. Room temperature is 23+/-0.5°C.

What do you think?
