I bought manuals for some of the Plug-ins for the Hickok DMS meter from Manualsplus before they closed down, I will have to add it to my backlog of tasks to photo the relevant bits for you.

Note: The Hickok DMS range was also sold in the UK rebranded by Farnell, I don't know the UK ones were made over here though, as I haven't got one.

thank you much for any information.
This DP200 displays in general around - some % from the true Capacitance.
So a 47F will be tested 44F , a 34nF is a 33.4nF and so on.

the power supply in the DMS3200 deliver 20.1V with a ripple of <5mV this may be OK.
I found a 549K 1% what is 560k, will change that.

I have tried a free app someone recommended to create some PDF's of the manual.
Here are PDF's of the specifications, calibration procedure, component locations, parts list and the circuit diagram, hope they help.
The calibration procedure requires 100pF-1.111uF & 1-999uF standards (both 0.05%), not sure many people will have those, I certainly don't.

DP200 Parts List.pdf

P.S. Do you want me to scan the operation instructions, circuit description & service procedure?
