ACV Calibrator
« on: March 22, 2019, 01:28:30 am »
I picked  up a dcv calibrator a couple of years back and did not expect to use it as much as I have. Turns out to be really handy. Now I’m thinking of getting an ac voltage calibrator. Something to spot check the 34401A meters and for calibration of ac measurement circuits in general. I’m thinking of an older Fluke or Datron unit. Can anyone chime in on what to look for and what to stay away from? I will be watching eBay for a lab pull for under $1k

find any model who has a service manual available ... my 2 cents

Im restoring a fluke 343,  still stuck with an overload  when i select 1000v,  but the service manual is a big help ..

One thing I’m curuios about is after a repair what type of equipment is required to calibrate the calibrator?

Also, ask for a picture of the transformer if you buy a Fluke 5200A, it's prone to fatal rust-induced defects.

For an example  in the fluke 343, you have to calibrate a 15.000 or 15.0000  volt reference, so i needed an 6.5 digit meter
