New Fluke 750P Series Pressure Modules provide more options and premium measurement accuracy

Fluke 750P Pressure Module SideApril 16, 2014 – To meet the requirements of evolving pressure calibration standards and reference class accuracy pressure instrumentation, Fluke Corp. introduces the 750P Series Pressure Modules.

The 48 precision modules enable gauge, differential, dual range, absolute and vacuum pressure measurement with Fluke 750 and 740 series Documenting Process Calibrators and 725, 726 Multifunction Process Calibrators.

The 750P Series is designed for the different use models specified in new calibration requirements. For applications in pharmaceuticals or custody transfers in oil and gas, there are 11 new modules with two-times more accuracy than standard modules. For industries like nuclear and pharmaceutical that now require calibration every six months, the 750P Series offer a six month specification that provides better accuracies between these shortened calibration cycles.

The new modules cover pressure calibrations from 0 to 1 in H20 to 10000 psi (2.5 mBar to 690 bar) with a 0.025 per cent reference uncertainty. Digital communication to calibrators eliminates errors due to poor connections and electrical interference.

Gauge pressure modules have one pressure fitting and measure the pressure with respect to atmospheric pressure. Differential pressure modules have two pressure fittings and measure the difference between the applied pressure on the high fitting versus the low fitting. Each module is clearly labelled for range, overpressure and media compatibility. All modules include NPT, metric (BSP) and M20 adapters.
