Figure 7 shows the circuit arrangement.
To obtain this, the generator function switch is placed in the STAB position.
In operation, the reference generator amplifier compares the voltage at the top
of the bridge with the reference voltage set by the 6-place divider and adjusts

available output current is given under the reference generator specifications
in Table 1.
(1) The operation amplifier marked X107 in Figure 9 is comprised
primarily of Q609, Q614, and Q615 on the B600 board (refer to Figures 11 and
12). The error signal, due to bridge unbalance, appears at terminals E4 and E5
and is amplified by the differential pair Q609.
The output from Q609 is
buffered by Q614, with a voltage gain of approximately 1, into operational
amplifier Q615. The output of Q615 is then returned to the base of Q601 which
drives the top of the bridge through terminal E13.

appear at terminals E4 and E5 as the bridge current varies. The use of this
circuit arrangement affords a common mode rejection ratio typically in excess
of 126 dB, if Q608 and Q613 are matched. Matching is accomplished by measuring
the change in the gate-source voltage at a constant source current of 30
microamps while the gate voltage is changed from 0 to 10 volts. Units which
exhibit the same change in the gate source voltage to within 1% are selected as
(3) The output resistance of the differential input stage is 200,000
ohms at each output. This is buffered by Q614 to isolate the relatively high
bias currents drawn by the inputs of Q615. Both Q609 and Q614 are integrated
circuits which utilize a heated, temperature-controlled chip to maintain
constant offset voltage and bias currents. The differential output from Q614
passes through polarity reversing switch S601B and S601C, two sections of the
thermistor-barretter switch. Diode D605 disconnects Q615 from power amplifier
