732A Fluke Standard
The 732A is a used Voltage Standard from Fluke. Engineers use direct current (DC) voltage standards to calibrate, standardize, normalize, and monitor drift, verify linearity, and establish regulation in electronic equipment. Standards are important during electronics compliance testing. Phase angle standards are ideal for calibrating many different electronics, including power analyzers, vector voltmeters, phase meters, phase sensitive instruments, and resolvers.
- 10 V, 1 V, and 1.018 V outputs
- 0.5 ppm stability per month (10 V output)
- 18°C to 28°C operation at full accuracy specs
- Short circuit proof
- Line and rechargeable battery powered
- 12-hour battery life for calibration transfer
The Fluke 732A is a solid state, DC reference standard which provides significant performance improvements in stability, ruggedness, and transportability. Its 10V output offers better resolution, lower noise, and simpler operation than standard cells. The 732A also includes outputs of 1.0 and 1.018 volts.
The accuracy and stability of the 732A allows direct substitution for saturated standard cells in many applications. Its stability of 0.5 ppm for 30 days provides the confidence necessary to calibrate high-performance instruments. In addition, the use of the 10V output as a primary reference standard means that the effects of thermal emfs and noise are reduced.
The 732A can be shorted, even for extended periods of time, without damage and recovers without loss of stability. The unit may be powered by line voltage or will operate 12 hours on its internal battery-even longer on external batteries. Either line power or the battery may be removed without affecting the output.
Saturated standard cells are fragile and susceptible to shock and vibration during traveling. The 732A was designed for air or ground shipment with no special handling.
The internal oven has high thermal gain allowing full accuracy to be specified over an operating range of 23°C ±5°C. Therefore, this reference standard may be used outside of the conventional standards laboratory environment in areas where saturated cells or other transfer standards would not be reliable.
