m. For greatest measurement accuracy, to eliminate the effects of DC reversal
error in the thermocouple heater, steps i through 1 should be repeated with the
opposite polarity of DC.
Use the average of the two DC voltages, corrected for
AC/DC transfer errors, to determine the RMS AC voltage.
n. Reduce the level of the DC source to its lowest level.
o. Disconnect the input of the Model 1395 from the DC source.

Learning Event 3:
DESCRIBE THE MODEL B7842 THERMAL CONVERTER
1. The second set of thermal converters used at the secondary level is the Model
B7842 (fig 2-15) which consists of the B7842-1, B7842-2, and the B7842-3.
maximum input voltage depends on the model; the B7842-1 has an input of 3 Vrms, the
B7842-2 is 1 Vrms and the B7842-3 is 0.45 Vrms.
The DC output voltage for full
scale input to any of the three is a nominal 7.5 mV with an output impedance of
less than 10 ohms. The input impedance is 50 ohms 0.15 ohm to 10 MHz and the AC-
DC error is 6 percent to 10 MHz.
