11683A Range Calibrator replaced by a DC Calibrator

Dear members

I have an HP 11683A Range Calibrator that I use to calibrate various HP/Agilent power meters, like for example the E4416, E4418B, E4419B, etc.  I have seen the schematics of the 11683A on his service manual, but I'm having trouble on understanding how could I simulate the use of this calibrator with a DC Voltage source and a 3458A DMM.

I don't see on which pins of the power meter cable should I apply a controlled DC voltage to calibrate the power meter, nor how these DC voltage translates in a power measurement.  Any help on how to achive this would be most welcome.

Sincere regards,
