New Fluke temperature calibrators deliver high accuracy in easy-to-use, single function tools

Fluke 712B Process CalibratorApril 7, 2014Fluke Corp. introduces two single function calibrators for simulating process temperature sensors. For technicians who don’t want the complexity of multifunction test tools yet need highly accurate temperature calibration, the Fluke® 712B RTD and 714B Thermocouple Temperature Calibrators let instrument, process and plant maintenance technicians quickly and easily test process temperature instrumentation.

The Fluke 712B measures and simulates 13 different resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) types and resistance and the 714B measures and simulates 17 different thermocouple types as well as millivolts, to verify process sensors by direct comparison of measured versus reported temperatures.

The calibrators also measure 4 to 20 mA signals with 0.001 mA resolution while simultaneously sourcing a temperature signal with both readings displayed on the large, backlit display for easy transmitter calibration. They can scale the measured mA to the programmed 0 and 100 per cent temperature settings to verify the 0 and 100 percent values scaled in a temperature transmitter.

Fluke Calibration 9190A Ultra-Cool Field Metrology Well delivers best-in-class stability

Fluke 9190AFebruary 19, 2013 – Fluke Calibration, a leader in precision calibration instrumentation and software, introduces the 9190A Ultra-Cool Field Metrology Well, a small, lightweight, and accurate dry-block calibrator with best-in-class stability.

The 9190A is ideal for pharmaceutical, biomedical and food processing applications that demand strict quality control and regulatory process compliance. This includes on-location validation and calibration of RTDs, thermocouples, thermometers and other temperature sensors.

The 9190A conforms to EURAMET cg-13 guidelines for best measurement practices for temperature dry-block calibrators. This means its specifications for accuracy, stability, axial (vertical) uniformity, radial (well-to-well) uniformity, loading and hysteresis have been thoroughly and carefully defined and tested.

The 9190A has a wide temperature range (-95 to 140 degrees Celsius) to cover the coldest and warmest temperatures required in pharmaceutical, biomedical and food processing applications. Operating at ultra-cold temperatures is not typically available with a calibration bath. The 9190A uses no bath fluids, which keeps clean rooms clean, makes it easier to transport and delivers faster heating/cooling rates. It offers best-in-class temperature stability (plus-or-minus 0.015 degrees Celsius) for consistent and accurate results.

New Fluke 5500E, Multi-Product Calibrator – The economical way to calibrate meters, clamps, thermometers and more

Sydney, July 27, 2010 – Fluke Corporation, a global leader in electronic test and measurement technology, has introduced the new 5500E Multi-Product Calibrator.

Based on the established 5500 Series MPC, the 5500E has the basic performance and functions needed for electronic test instrument calibration. The new 5500E offers exceptional value to those customers that have a basic yet varied workload, with a better performance specification in the more popular and flexible 5500 series instrument platform.

The 5500E has a wide range of outputs available from a single calibration source. These include dc and ac voltages up to 1020 V, dc and ac currents up to 550 A (using the 5500A/COIL, 50 turn current coil accessory) and variable resistances up to 330 MΩ. The 5500E also provides continuously variable capacitance values up to 1.1 mF.

For temperature calibration applications, thermocouples and RTDs are simulated and thermocouple signals can be measured. It also generates digitally synthesised extended bandwidth sine, truncated sine, triangle and square waveforms. The 5500E offers a broad workload coverage in one economically priced package.
