Operation and Reference Manual for the NIST Automated Ac/dc Calibration Systems and Software

Published

Author(s)

Thomas E. Lipe

Abstract

This document provides a reference for the NIST automated systems for the determination of the ac-dc difference of thermal converters. It presents the structure of the LabVIEW software routines that control the systems, as well as explicit instructions for operating the systems. Detailed descriptions of subroutines are presented, as well as instructions for calibrating many different types of thermal converters. A developmental history of the NIST automated systems is included, as is an extensive list of references.
