[volt-nuts] Calibration of voltage standards

A Data Proof scanner seems to be the standard of some primary labs. They
don't show up often on the auction site.

This company makes one that fits the front of a 732B. I have never seen it
in use.


There also appears to be a Guildline 9600 up for auction. It is misspelled
Guideline. I don't know the specs of that item, I have just noticed it has
been listed for a while.

Some of the Keithley instruments take "low thermal" cards, but they are not
reversible as far as I can tell. You might be able to do so with two
separate inputs. It is a Keithley 7168 nanovolt scanner card. If you can
get one, I am pretty sure you can plug it into a 7001/7002 scanner.

A home made switch might be cheaper if you can source some good low thermal
latching relays.
