Well I finally got the 615nm Led's installed and the results seem so so.
The zero drifted was significantly on the 1uV range. So I used two
LT1634 1.25 Volt references with the current set by two 43k resistors
from the ±15 volt supplies. The previous reference used came from the
-0.4 volts at TP1 and +0.6 volts at TP8. Removed the 150k resistor at
the positive end of the zero control and lifted the negative end from
the circuit board the connected the ±1.25 ref to the zero pot. Much
better stability, drifts by noise about ±.1 to ±.2uv now on 1uv range.
Is this normal now? Never used a new Fluke 845ab before. The white led's
seemed to filter the noise better with its persistent, may go back. The
zero seems stable with ±2 F change in room temperature now.
