    Hi,

    I disassembled this damaged (I think...) capacitor from my Fluke 87 1°
    series.
    What value is it?
    May be 1µF?

    Hi,
    Because the Fluke use up battery also in OFF state.
    But now I am not sure that this capacitor is damaged, shoud be only a
    calibration?

    Looks like a spark-gap device

    Send your Fluke meter to Fluke service or their rep for proper service. The
    cap may not be the original problem. You cannot calibrate your Fluke meter
    yourself, without their dedicated setup, training, and factory service
    information.

    I think it is exactly that.

    Yes ... perhaps a combined spark-gap/capacitor.

    Why is that? Is a Weston cell not enough?

    Did removal of the capacitor fix the battery drain problem? If yes then it is
    likely the problem. You should be able to find a replacement from a parts
    vendor, or from Fluke. If not, put it back into the circuit and look elsewhere.
    Are you sure the battery is good? Is it possibly a rechargeable that has
    reached the end of its useful life?
