S e c t i o n Il. OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
This section contains operating procedures for the
voltmeter. It may be used as a voltmeter or
ratiometer to measure or compare voltages from 0
to 1100V DC. A printer output capability is also

a. Disconnect test leads from INPUT ter-
b. Set voltmeter controls as follows:
c. Select VDC and 10V range.
d. Connect a shorting jumper between the HI
and LO INPUT terminals. Verify that GUARD
terminal is connected to LO INPUT terminal.
e. Rotate DC ZERO control to obtain a readout
The voltmeter is capable of measuring voltages
from 0 to 1100V DC in four separate ranges (1, 10,
