Hello,

I'm looking for a Keithley 776 counter manual. Is there a PDF version available somewhere?

Thanks,

I have uploaded the Model 776 Instruction manual to the KI FTP site.
Here is how to access it.
ftp://ftp.keithley.com

User name is kicust
pass word is w3lc0m3
This spells welcome, but the vowels are integers.
Look for Model 776 manual folder.

Dale C...
I'm also looking for a Keithley 776 counter manual in PDF version.
I went to the link and signed on with Name & Password but
all I get is the empty folder. Matter of fact most of the folders are empty.
Is there a time limit on the files in the folders.
I do have a 776 manual in PDF but the schematic portion is blurry.
I'd liked to get a little better copy. So if you could upload it again I'd appreciate it.
My 776 is getting error code "2009" but my TCXO is working fine.
I think I'll have to trouble shoot the main board logic.

I reposted the 776 manual.
It will be there on the ftp site for about 30 days.
Hope this helps.

Dale C...
Thanks for the upload.
Although your PDF is better than mine,
it's still difficult to discern all the parts numbers.
I'll just have to print the PDF and write the parts numbers on it
after tracing & confirming them on the actual board itself.
Dale, would you or anybody know if a battery failure in the zeropower sram
would cause the 776 counter to display the error code "2009"??
It doesn't seems likely but maybe there is a logic quirk somewhere!
Error "2009" means 'no valid external timebase'.
But the internal timebase is connected and functioning.

I do not know error “2009”. I have has some 776’s where the battery backed sram was dead but the only way I saw this was by trying to save ieee address. This was in version 1.24 and 2.0 firmware. I don’t know if 2.03 or version 3.0 has this error code.

Would it be possible to have this manual uploaded one more time? I'm trying to find the list of GPIB commands for the device. Thanks very much,
NV

Hi!

Can you make the 776 Manual and addendum documents available in the FTP site again ?
It look like there is a regular demand for those documents
can you put them on a permanent base in the technical support 776 page with the drivers ?

Thanks in advance !

The manual and addendum have been reposted.
I did not see any "drivers" to post.
