1-2. Organization of the Service Manual
The following descriptions briefly describe each chapter in the manual. Chapter 1 Introduction and Specifications
This chapter describes use of the Service Manual and application of special terminology (conventions) to describe the meter's circuitry. A complete set of specifications appears at the end of this chapter.
This chapter first categorizes instrument circuitry into functional blocks, with a description of each block's role in overall operation. A detailed circuit description is then given for each block. These descriptions explore operation to the component level and fully support troubleshooting and repair procedures defined in Section 3.
Provides complete maintenance information, from general maintenance and cleaning instructions to detailed troubleshooting and repair procedures to the component level. Troubleshooting and repair procedures rely heavily on both the Theory of Operation presented in Chapter 2 and the Schematic Diagrams shown in Section 5.
Chapter 4 List of Replaceable Parts
Includes parts lists for all standard assemblies. Information on how and where to order parts is also provided.
Chapter 5 Schematic Diagrams Includes schematic for the A1 Main PCA.
Through the manual, certain notational conventions are used. A summary of these conventions follow:
• Instrument Reference
The Fluke 77 Series III Multimeter is also referred to throughout this manual as "the meter".
• Printed Circuit Assembly
The term "pca" is used to represent a printed wiring board and its attached parts.
• Circuit Nodes
Individual pins or connections on a component are specified by a dash (-) following the component reference designator. For example, pin 19 of U30 would be U30-19.
• User Notation
Generally, push buttons, function positions, input terminals, and display notation are presented in this manual as they are seen on the meter.
Special terms (mnemonics) used in text descriptions of meter circuitry correspond to terms used on the schematic diagrams in Chapter 5.
Specifications for the meters are presented in Table 1-1.
