Title: A VERSATILE RECORDING POTENTIOMETER

Abstract

ABS>A recording potentiometer was modified to provide a versatile instrument that can be applied to a variety of problems without time-consuming changes. Ranges may be selected in six spans, from 0.5 to 100 mv. No adjustments of amplifier gain are required when switching from one range to another. Zero suppression is continuously variable over a plus or minus 100 mv range by means of coarse and vernier controls. Cold junction compensation is provided for four standard thermocouples, and chart speeds from 1/2 to 16 im- ./ hr may be selected at will. (auth)
