Default Nice problem - Dmm6500 + 2000-SCAN

A place had to close and the owner was so nice to give me a DMM-6500 that has a 2000-SCAN card installed.
Unfortunately were the amazing gift, without any cables at all, but beggars cant be choosers and I am happy as can be!! :-)
I am uncertain on how to connect probes to the 2000-scan card, I have read the manual bur it does not tell anything about the other end of the 20 (22 awg) wire ribbon. Do anyone know how to make it usable?

If you have this Keithley DMM6500 https://www.tek.com/tektronix-and-ke...imeter/dmm6500 then you probably have this scanner card. The manual should show details on using it. Its not really that useful a feature on a bench meter but great for some specialized measurement tasks. You would need software to make real use of it to plot stuff. The meter looks quite nice.

Yes it's that card but no cables. The manual does not tell anything about connection to DUT.

All the software that are used for graphs and so on, is already in the meter.
The manual looks like this: https://assets.testequity.com/te1/Do...CAN-manual.pdf

From the picture it looks like a terminal strip with screws. Insert wire and tighten screw. That has been typical for both Keithly and HP scanners for some time. My Prema uses a DB25 connector which is actually a bigger pain.

1audio yes that part is no problem:-) Now do I have a ribbon with 20 wires, each 22awg, fasten to the card.
But what about the other end, how do I connect the 22 awg gauge to something that let me use probes for each wire?
