New precision pressure calibration products from Fluke satisfy accuracy and measurement range needs of instrumentation technicians

Fluke LogoNovember 11, 2013Fluke Corporation is broadening its suite of precision pressure calibration products with the addition of 14 new 700G Series Pressure Gauges and two new models of pressure calibrators: the Fluke® 719Pro and 721 Dual Range Pressure Calibrator.

Instrument, process and plant maintenance technicians now have a complete line of rugged, trusted pressure calibration devices ranging from 10 inH20 to 10,000 psi in 18 different engineering units letting them customise the gauge to meet their specific pressure calibration requirements.

The 700G Series Precision Pressure Test Gauges feature pressure measurements ranging from 10 inH20/20 mbar to 10,000 psi/690 bar and 0.05 per cent accuracy with new absolute pressure measurement ranges and reference class accuracy gauges with reading accuracies of 0.04 percent of reading. Combine 700G gauges with the Fluke 700PTPK or 700HTPK pump kits for a complete pressure testing solutions for up to 600 psi (40 bar) with the PTP-1 pneumatic pump and up to 10,000 psi (690 bar) with the HTP-2 hydraulic pump.

The 719Pro Electric Pressure Calibrator is the ideal test tool for calibrating high accuracy transmitters, pressure switches and pressure gauges. It features high accuracy pressure measurements and an onboard electric pressure pump that can generate up to 300 psi (20 bar), eliminating the need for an external hand pump. It also measures, simulates and sources 4-20 mA loop current signals and can also measure up to 30 V dc. Its internal 24 loop power supply can power a transmitter under test.

The Fluke 721 Dual Range Pressure Calibrator with dual isolated pressure sensors lets technicians take simultaneous static and differential pressure measurements in a single tool for gas custody and transfer applications. It can be configured by selecting either a 16 psi (1.1 bar) or 36 psi (2.48 bar) low pressure sensor and then add any of seven high pressure ranges including 100, 300, 500, 1000, 1500, 3000 or 5000 psi (6.9, 20, 24.5, 69, 103.4, 200, 345 bar).

Fluke 700G Precision Pressure Gauges are backed by a three-year warranty.

Fluke Calibration COMPASS® for Pressure version 4.0 software automates pressure calibration

SoftwareSeptember 12, 2011Fluke Calibration, a leader in precision calibration instrumentation and software, introduces COMPASS for Pressure version 4.0 pressure calibration management software.

This latest version of the industry-leading pressure calibration software provides calibration professionals an off-the-shelf tool that maximises the automation of calibration and testing processes.

COMPASS for Pressure is a universal platform for all pressure calibration software needs. From piston gauges calibrating individual devices in the calibration lab to transfer standards characterising racks of sensors in production, the software lets calibration professionals advance from individual automated hardware components to a fully automated calibration system quickly without consuming internal engineering resources.

The new software integrates calibration functions with pressure-specific dependencies that are missing from more generic software. It lets users export test data directly to the MET/CAL Plus Calibration Management System, so users can easily manage inventory, calibration locations, maintenance and customers.

Version 4.0 features an improved interface between COMPASS and MET/CAL Plus, so that customised fields can be used easily and the migration process is even more transparent.

Version 4.0 adds auto-detect support for Ruska references and integrated support of Ruska auto-float controllers and piston gauge monitors, letting WinPrompt software users easily upgrade to the full-function COMPASS platform. It also features fully automated calibration and adjustment of Fluke 700 pressure modules when used with a Fluke controller reference.

For the laboratory manager who wants to grow into COMPASS software by purchasing licenses as needed, COMPASS 4.0 offers a new flexible and affordable seat-based licensing structure.

New Fluke COMPASS® for Pressure 3.0 software helps automate pressure calibration processes

DHI-compass_01a_c

Universal platform for automating pressure calibration

Sydney, July 16, 2010  – Fluke Corporation, a global leader in electronic test and measurement technology, has introduced COMPASS® for Pressure 3.0 software that helps calibration professionals organise and accelerate the task of calibrating pressure devices.

COMPASS for Pressure is a universal platform for all pressure calibration software needs. It provides an off-the-shelf software tool to maximise the automation of calibration and testing processes. COMPASS for Pressure integrates calibration functions with pressure-specific factors that are missing from more generic software packages.

This industry-leading pressure calibration software enables calibration professionals to advance from individual automated hardware components to a fully automated calibration system quickly, without consuming internal engineering resources.

COMPASS software, and the expert assistance available from the product application specialists at the Fluke DH Instruments Division, removes the unknowns often associated with getting automated systems online.

COMPASS Software is structured around unit under test and test definitions. Unit under test definitions identify devices to be tested with all their characteristics. Test definitions define test sequences and all the details of test execution.

The pressure reference devices, data acquisition equipment and auxiliary measurement and control devices available to COMPASS software are set up and stored in a hardware database.

All DH Instruments devices and many commonly used data acquisition products are already set up as examples to simplify the implementation of actual test hardware.

Users can change hardware selections without programming or interfacing skills. COMPASS software also enables users to export test data directly to MET/BASE database used by the MET/CAL® Plus Calibration Management System. Users can now manage their inventory, calibration location, maintenance and customers through MET/TRACK® software. Users gain the benefits of COMPASS software’s specialisation in pressure calibration while maintaining the link to their organisation’s overall calibration management system.

COMPASS for Pressure 3.0 is available in two versions. The basic version performs basic calibration and testing on units under test, even those that may have complex outputs.

The enhanced version supports complex tests, including custom user macros within the test sequence and multiple outputs from a single unit under test. Each version is available for a single user or for a multi-user worksite.
