SECTION I IDENTIFICATION AND DESCRIPTION 1. Test Instrument Identification. This bulletin provides instructions for the calibration of Voltage Standard, John Fluke Models 332A, 332B, and 332B/AF. The manufacturers instruction manuals were used as the prime data source in compiling these instructions. The equipment being calibrated will be referred to as the "TI" (test instrument) throughout this bulletin. a. Model Variations. On model 332A with serial numbers 123 through 332, the X position of voltage dials 2 through 7 is labeled 10. b. Time and Technique. The time required for this calibration is approximately 4 hours, using the dc and low frequency technique. 2. Calibration Data Card, DA Form 2416 a. Forms, records, and reports required for calibration personnel at all levels are prescribed by TM 38-750. DA Form 2416 must be annotated in accordance with TM 38-750 for each calibration performed. b. Adjustments to be reported on DA Form 2416 are designated (R) at the end of the sentence in which they appear. When adjustments are in tables, the (R) will follow the designated adjustment. Report only those adjustments made and designated with (R). 3. Calibration Description. TI parameters and performance specifications which pertain to this calibration are listed in table 1.

DEATH ON CONTACT may result if personnel fail to observe safety precautions. NOTE Unless otherwise specified, verify the results of each test and take corrective action whenever the test requirement is not met before continuing with the calibration. 4

TB 9-4931-383-50 NOTE Unless otherwise specified, all controls and control settings refer to the TI. c.
