Exploring the Battery Option of the EDC/Krohn-Hite MV216A DC Voltage Standard

In my previous blog post, I did a teardown of the EDC/Krohn-Hite MV216A DC voltage standard and measured the temperature coefficient of its reference Zener diode. And as I promised, this time I will explore its internal and external battery options. Continue reading ‘Exploring the Battery Option of the EDC/Krohn-Hite MV216A DC Voltage Standard’ »

EDC/Krohn-Hite MV216A DC Voltage Standard Teardown and Tempco Measurement

In this blog post, we are going to take a look at Electronic Development Corporation’s (EDC, acquired by Krohn-Hite in 1998) MV216A battery/external powered DC voltage standard and also measure its voltage reference’s temperature coefficient (tempco). A teardown video is also included towards the end. MV216A is a six decade precision DC voltage standard, it can output from 0.1µV in 100mV range all the way up to 11.1111V in 10V range. Voltage standards of this caliber are usually used as calibrators to calibrate multimeters and other test instruments.
