Resolution measuring a resistor
I'm creating a procedure to measure a resistance decade with the 8508A.
I have some doubt on the resolution for the uncertainty calculation.
Let's assume that I use the following procedure:
9.004 8508 900Z OC D6 N 4W9.005 MATH MEM = MEM - Zero9.006 MEMC 100 900.00Z 0.5%
Where Zero is the zero residual of the decade.
I understand that in this case Metcal will not consider the resolution of the 8508A, but it will take 0.01 as resolution. In this case I will have a much larger uncertainty.
Do there is a method to automatically take the resolution of the 8508A? Or I really have to manually calculate for every step the correct resolution and write the appropriate zeros?
