Abstract:

A fully automated self-calibrating electrical measurement test set for field use is proposed. The key features of the system are 1 a set of converters for reducing all measurements to quantities involving the basic three parameters voltage, resistance and time 2 direct electrical measurement capability, reducing the number of measurement devices in the field 3 computational capability for the solution of measurement network equations and the performance of error analysis 4 full automatic execution of stored program calibration procedures and measurement routines 5 self-check philosophy to insure fidelity of the system at all times 6 minimal standards package consisting of single standards of resistance, voltage and time. The standards package is replaceable on a periodic basis. The system is described on a technical basis after which a proposal for the fabrication of a prototype model is presented. Author
