1.INTRODUCTION
al Handling While the Meteor Counters have been designedto be rugged, severeshocks can be destructiveand should be avoided. Suitable precautions against static should be taken as the unit contains CMOS components. Do not exposeto radiant heat, includingdirect sunlight for prolonged periods, or high humidity including conditions conducive to the formation of ice. Remove batteries if storing for prolonged periods. lf accidentallyimmersed,rinse in fresh water, dry as far as possibleafter removing batteries, then stand in a dry warm atmosphere (40oC - 60oC) away from direct heat until dried. bl Equipment To check a Meteor 100 Frequency Counter, Signal Generatorsmust be availablecovering the band 2Hz t o 1 0 0 M H z . I n a d d i t i o n . g e n e r a t o r sc o v e r i n g t h e b a n d 1 0 0 M H zt o 6 0 0 M H z o r l G H z ( a s a p p r o p r i a t e ) are required to check Meteor 600 and 1000 models. The output level of all generatorsmust be adjustable by a calibratedcontrol. lt is helpful (though not essential) if the output impedanceis 50 Q . Frequency calibration requiresa highly stable signal source of better than 1 x 10-7error. ldeallyan Off-Air Frequency Standard should be used. In the U.K. a Burns Frequency Standard SD-12 locked to Droitwich transmissions would be appropriate. For routine servicing a 20MHz bandwidth Oscilloscope, preferably dual beam, with a sensitivity of 5mV must be available, equipped with x10, 10MA input impedance probes. An accurate Multimeter, preferably digital, capable of measuring 20V and 500mA must be available. The following sundry equipment may also be needed:Screwdriver- pozidriveNo. 2 point. Solderingiron I solder. Desolderingtool (desolderwick may damage p.c.b.). Insulatedtrimming tool (or suitable insulatedscrewdriver). Small hand tools (pliers,cutters etc. ) Black Star Mains Adaptor or appropriate bench power supply (9V 600mA). Set of 6 Nickel Cadmium cells, 'C' size, with a capacity of 1.2Ah or greater. Through termination ( 50 Q or as appropriate for signalgenerator). Appropriate BNC connecting leads (at least one with crocodile lipsl. c c) Dismantling i l i R e m o v ei n s t r u m e n t r o m p a c k i n g . f ii) Remove knob from front panel by pulling from shaft. lf it is necessary apply leverage, to be careful not to apply side thrust to the potentiometer spindle.
