I'm trying to locate a procedure for calibrating the Wavetek 9100 using Fluke Met/Cal software. I searched the Fluke website to no avail.

I know one company exists which writes programs for Fluke Met/Cal however I've forgotten their name. :mg:

Does anyone know if/where I can get this procedure at?

I have a pair of 9100's but I'm afraid I can't help with a CP. Because we use them as fairly high-level calibration standards, we send ours to Fluke (Carrolton TX) for calibration instead of doing them in-house. Also, we use the old Wavetek Portocal-II automation system instead of Fluke's.

OTOH, I will send you a PM with a contact who may be able to give you information on developers.

I presume these units were designed/built since Fluke bought Wavetek?
No, the 9100 was a Wavetek product for several years (at least 4) before Fluke bought the company. Likewise, the Wavetek Portocal-II automation software is actually older than that.

It's all part of the narrowing of the field of suppliers...

  • Danaher Corp Owns Fluke as one of at least 89 companies and/or brands. (Some other recognizable names may be Pomona Electronics, Hart Scientific, Pacific Scientific, K-D Tools, Matco Tools (a major customer for the hand tools group is Sears, for the Craftsman brand line), Gilbarco (gasoline pumps), Delta (toolboxes and work truck bodies) Jacobs Chucks and more ...
  • Fluke bought Wavetek several years ago.
  • Earlier in the 1990's, Wavetek bought Datron.
  • Hewlett-Packard spun off the test and measurement instruments (their whole heritage!) into Agilent Corp, which now does not make anywhere near the number of high-end calibration standards as they used to.
As a result, if you need a high-end multifunction calibrator or AC/DC voltage standard, there's now basically one major supplier where 15 years ago there were at least four or five.

and there are many more examples ...

I have two of these which were just collecting dust. I've finaly convinced the naysayers to do on-sites to our outlying plants. I wanted to calibrate them, however the manual procedure is so time intensive I had hoped to automate it.

I contacted a source Graeme mentioned to me and it looks like I should be getting a response.

Forgive my rash comments here......comes from many hours of repair/cal of pre-Fluke Wavetek products.......

I am a bit surprised that they work.....most of them that I have seen from that time frame make great boat anchors.......

Hello;

Would have or be able to point me to the service manual for the 9100 please. What I have found on the web are the user manuals...

Thanks!
Ken
