Spread sheet aided design of compensation for 7V to 10V step up resistor set

<< < (3/3)

That is a proven solution.

Winding the insulated copper wire on the original mica card resistor much improves the thermal tracking.

The compensation can be easily trimmed by making a double folded link in the copper wire and shorting the required length by soldering.

They 'improve' it in specification to 2ppm/year from 3ppm/year of 732A, but still use the same hermetic WW pair.

And even though the specs of the 732B are better, the 732A has the better behaviour (as can also be seen from the Fluke diagrams you show).
