    Hi,
    I just bought an older Fluke DMM 8060A together with an temperature
    probe 80T-150.
    As I do not have a manual for the probe (I found a manual for the DMM
    on the Fluke website), I'm wondering how to set the probe for °C
    (currently it is set for °F). There is no switch inside or outside the
    cabinet, but it must be possible in general, as the specifications show
    values both in °C and °F and there is a small box on the back, that
    can be ticked (with a sharpie) for the current setting. I have no clue.
    Does someone out there know about this or has even a manual available
    for scan or photocopy?
    That would be great!
    Thanks OLLI

    I lost my first detailed post ! Look on solder side of board, there
    should be two places where parenthesis ( ) are silkscreened. Place
    solder across the pads within the parenthesis in both places. That will
    set it up for Celcius. If there are no parenthesis, your unit is very
    old and you will need the documentation. Let me know how it goes.

    thanks a lot for your reply. In the meantime someone also sent me a
    PDF-manual but I guess you where right with "very old":
    I checked my probe yesterday evening against your description and the
    PDF-manual. Unfortunately it seems to have a different PCB design (no
    silkscreening at all, older?). The PCB revision is "V". The layout is
    different as the one described in the manual, as the resistor network
    is not in a single DIL Package, but in two independant 7- or 8-pin RC
    modules. I tried to check the schematics to find out, if I can identify
    the pins to jumper anyway, but had no luck.
    Until now I got no reaction from Fluke.com regarding my question for
    help or a manual.

    If you are in the USA send me your FAX number. I looked again and REV
    "V" shows parenthesis and REV "F" doesn't. Take a closer look for the
    parenthesis, sometimes documentation is wrong too.

    Hi,
    I'm located in Germany.
    I had a close look on the PCB, but there are no parenthesis anywhere on
    the solder or component side. The board does not have a silkscreening
    at all, so the parenthesis must be there in copper.
    I can make a photo or scan of the board and send it via mail. Could
    this help?
    Thanks a lot for trying to help me!

    Make a digial image (of the solder side, non-component side) out of it,
    send it to my email and I'll try and place a ( ) using a photo program
    and email back. Won't be able to do it until next week. You are
    looking at the non-component side ? Take Care. email =
