A system for calibrating and using a group of dc and ac standards has been developed at NBS to meet increasing needs for greater accuracy in the measurement of direct and rms alternating voltages at audio frequencies. With a group of saturated cells, a universal ratio set as a potentiometer, a simplified self-calibrating volt box, and a new differential-thermocouple ac-dc comparator, an accuracy of 10 ppm can be obtained for direct voltage measurements and 40 ppm for rms alternating voltage measurements between 20 and 20 000 c/s, in terms of the direct volt and the ac-dc transfer standards maintained at NBS.
