The 8300A Offers You

The 8300A is a versatile digital voltmeter with five full decades of digits plus a 6th digit for 20% over-
range. Its mainframe will accept options in any sequence for expansion from a bench DVM into a
bench or systems multimeter.
The 8300A uses the Fluke developed Recirculating Remainder A-to-D conversion system which
determines the most significant digit by a very accurate direct comparison process, stores a sample of
the remaining input voltage, and serially determines the value of succeeding digits from this sample.
This process requires only one decade of BCD counter and one decade of precision resistive ladder
network for five complete decades of conversion. Multiple use of components results in low parts
count, and low power consumption, thus ensuring high reliability . Complete isolation of digital data
outputs is yet another outstanding characteristic of this Fluke developed technique.
The basic instrument offers 3 ranges of DC voltage measuring capability including autorange, auto-
polarity, and switchable active fittering. In addition , the 8300A-1O configuration offers 5 ranges of
DC Volts, and the 8300A-02 version offers both 5 ranges of DC Volts and 5 ranges of ohms measure-
ments.
The 8300A's sample rate can be manually varied from the front panel or it can be remotely controlled
(optional).
Full guarding is accomplished by box -in -a-box construction and use of a FLUKE custom-designed is-
olating power transformer. Guarding is not compromised when the isolated Data Output and Remote
Con trol units are added.
Calibration is accomplished through the guard via labelled ports.

All optional functions may be installed in the field . The analog options are fully within the guard,
their installation automatically enables the appropriate function light of the display. Options may
be field installed.

AC volts features a 50 Hz to 20 kHz midband with excellent accu racy to 30 Hz and 100 k Hz.
Mv function extends the DC capabi li t y of the 8300A to 100 mv at full range with 1 uv of resolution.
The ohms function includes 5 resistance ranges, using a modified four-terminal configuration on the
two lowest_
DC External Reference can be used for true four-terminal ratio or for systems measurements related to
a master reference_

Data Output is completely isolated from the analog input and is available in a 8-4-2-1 BCD logic level
format . Data is transferred serially via guarded toroidsfrom the 8300A to the Data Output unit. Single
decade code conversion and serial-character, parallel -bit acquisition are unique capabilities in addition
to standard full parallel output.
Remote Control is fully isolated from analog input and may be fully isolated from the Data Output
unit but is normally used in conjunction with it. Control is exerted by logic levels or contact closures.
1501<1 tion from analog circuitry is accomplished through the use of light-emitting diodes and photo-
transistors .

AC Current Clamp-On Probe 801600
The Model 801 - 600 AC current probe is a true current
transformer which is designed to clamp afound the current
carryi ng conductor to be measured. This conductor be-
comes the primary of the current transformer probe. Wind
ings in the probe are the secondary. The current flow in the
secondary is measured by placing iii known smal1l1alue of
resistance across th e probe's output. Th e voltage across
this resistor may then be preci sely measured.

The 1900A is a breakthrough in the price of multi -function counters.
This new, autoranging, 80MHz multi -counter features advanced L. S.I.IM.O.S. circuitry providing grea ter
rel iability with much reduced power consumption .
In addi t ion to autoranging the 1900A provides manual selection of gate times from 10msec to 10 seconds,
.1 Hz resolution. A~toranging seeks to fill all display digits wi t h a maximum resolution of 1 Hz or for period
measurements, 10 periods. The autoranging circuitry provides a unique 20% hysteresis which prevents
ambiguous readings caused by ,up range and down range commands. A simple example is seen when the input
signal is approximately lOMHz.
Signal conditioning is provided with a 1MHz low pass filter and a times ten attenuator. T hese features are
necessary when measuring signals in the presence of high level RF or when the signal amplitude is so high
that a noisy reading results.
T he dynamic range of the , 900A in the frequency mode is 5Hz to 80M Hz and 5Hz to lMHz in the period
mode. In totalizing operations the 1900A will accept frequencies of 5Hz to 80M Hz.
Sensitivi ty over the range of 5Hz to 80MHz is 25mV and typically will respond to a 15mV input.

I The 1900A provides a six di git LE D display with automa ti c decimal point posit ioning and automatic units
annunciation of MHz , k Hz, msec and usec.
In addition to a standard reset control al l functions, gate times and signal condition ing buttons activate auto
reset. This means that whe n functions are changed the counter logic and di spl ay are reset to zero and the next
reading is correct. T he most illust rative example is when selecting the ten second gate t ime. T he auto reset
assures the operator that he wi l l not have to wait twenty seconds for correct reading.
T he 1900A utilizes highly sophisticated packaging concepts. T he result is a very du rable package tha t wi ll
provide years o f dependable service.
Options ava ilable for the 1900A include an rechargeable NiCad battery and a data output option.
The rechareable battery mounts internally and provides the operator with a light weight field operable
multi function counter. The convenient carrying handle makes it ideal for field service application s.
The data output option provides paral lel BCD informati on in 8.4 .2.1 code. The information provided
includes six digits, decima l point, units annunciation and overflow indication.

St andard in the 1900A is full leading zero suppression and automatic decimal position.

In addition to the au t omatic units an nuncia t ion, the control panel is colour keyed for ease in descrimination
between frequency and period un its.

attenuatar can be engaged to immunize the counter logic from high amplitude transients and spikes.

A display offset option permits the 1941 A to be used in applications whe re the desired reading is some
thing other than the frequency input. As an example, the I. F. of a receiver may be subtracted from the
frequency input. Th is is accompl ished by subtracting a number equal to the receiver I F from the dis-
play , the result will enable the operator to track the actual received freq uency. In many instances where
unskilled operators are using counters it is considerably easier to reduce the reading to zero thus re-
ducing eye fatique. A negative offset of the desired reading will provide a reading of 000000.

The "count" or totalize mode wi ll provide unit counting up to 999999 then wi ll activate an overflow
ind ica tor. Using the 1941 A's preset capability, th is counter wil l provide a TTL signal at a predetermined
number. An example of using the complementa ry offset in the totalize mode wou ld be counting "N"
bearings during the packaging stage and provid ing a TTL pulse to a conveyor control ler. The resul t is
simply " N" bea rings per box .

80
The 1941A preset can be hard wired for dedicated appl ica tions or varied easily by interfacing the rear
panel connector to a commercially available , 6 dig it thumbwheel switch. Thus the offset amount can
be adjusted within seconds.

This instrument also provides an RPM mode , and, depending on the type of tranducer used , can pro
vide resolution to a single RPM in 600 milliseconds.

The large , 112", gas discharge type display offers easy viewing of six digits from distances in excess of
20 feet away.

The 1941A enables frequ ency measurements to be made from 5Hz to 40MHz, providing a choice of
four gate times for resolution selection . A reset command will return the counter's logic and display
to zero and will initiate a new measurement.

An external clock input will permit this counter to be tied to an in plant standard .

As a 50 MHz counter, the 1950A offers superb performance in the low-priced general-purpose cou nter
market. Operating from line vol tage or 12 Vdc the 1950 A is a rugged and ve rsa tile performer.

The 1950A performs frequency, frequency rat io, period, multiple pe riod average and totalizing
measurements. Inpu t sensitivity over the entire range of 5 Hz to 50 M Hz is 50 mVrms . For improved
noise rejection in electrically noisy environments an input attenuatar on Channel " A " desensi tizes the
inpu t by a factor of 10. Both chan nels have an overload capability to withstand 150 V rms withou t
damage.

A variabl e trigger level control with trigger status lamps enables the operator to quickly esta blish proper
triggering. Thi s feature is extremely usefu l for measuring waveforms conta minated by ringing and noi se
sp ikes that can cause erroneous readings on cou nters with prese t trigger leve ls.

83
With ootional temperature compensated crystal oscil lators, the 1950A will meet or exceed FCC spec
fications. When the instrument is turned on, there is no need to wait for an oven controlled oscillator
to stabilize.

For users who requi re a BCD output or enVISion futu re needs for recorded data, Fluke provides an
inexpensive field install able BCD output, Option 02, providi ng 842' parallel TTL compati ble logic
with print command. The 1950A02 can be easily mated with digita l printers, and an interface kit to
the Fluke 2010A printer is available as an accessory.

72Vdc OPERATION

In the lab, in a van, or strapped to a technician's side, the 1980A V HF , UHF Telecommunications
Counter can be used to service mobile land, sea and air communications systems quickly. accu rately
and dependably, Ready to use when it is turned on, this performance engineered counter operates
under conditions of OoC to SOCC. The standard TCXQ in the 1980A will provide specifications that
meet or exceed FCC requ irements. from OoC to +50o CI An optional TC XO further improves the
1980A's temperature dependence .
A standard 1980A wi l l operate from line vol tages, 115/230 Vae or 100 Volt at request . For mobile
applications a 12Vdc external power sou rce may be used. When total portability is requi red an optional
battery pack and ca rrying case provide approximately 5 hours of conti nu ous operation. Because of
bui ltin protecti on circuitry, recharging can be accomplished whi le operating the 1980AOl on line
curre nt without fear of overcharging. The instrument can be used ....mile chargi ng the battery .
Sinewaves with noise spikes and ringing square waves can cause erroneous readings on counters with
fi xed positive or negative trigger levels. To help eliminate this problem the 1980A provides a variable
trigger level control on the d irect input. With this control proper triggering can be quickly and easi ly
established.
The 1980A, used with a sniffer antenna or inductive loop can be used to quick ly measure R F ca rrie r
frequencies, squelch tones, beeper tones and local oscillator frequencies. R F carrie rs can be measured
to a resolu tion of 1 Hz and frequencies below 50MHz to .1 Hz.
