Fluke 8502A Digital multimeter
Model: 8502A
Date: 1981
Category: Measurement instruments
Group: Digital multimeter

The Model 8502A Digital multimeter is a 6 1/2 digit instrument employing microprocessor control and a bus structure. Memory programming either from the front panel or through a remote Interface permits a number of operations to be performed on the measured input before it is displayed. The standard configuration allows for measurement of dc volts in 5 ranges. Four ranges are available for ac volts when either optional ac Converter is installed. Resistance can be measured in 8 ranges. Current can be measured in 5 ranges. Modular Construction Considerable versatility is realized through the 8502A’s unique construction. All active components are contained in modules which plug into a mainframe motherboard. This module-motherboard mating, combined with bus architecture and microprocessor control, yields both ease of option selection and reduced downtime. Microprocessor Control All modules function under direct control of a microprocessor based controller. Each module is addressed by the controller as a memory location. External reference values and offsets can be applied separately, stored in memory, and automatically used as factors in all subsequent readings. Digital filtering utilizes averaged samples for each reading. Recirculating Remainder A/D Conversion The 8502A adapts Fluke’s patented recirculating remainder (R2) A/D conversion technique to microprocessor control. This combination provides fast, accurate, linear measurements and long-term stability.
