New handheld calibrator is rugged

5 May 2004 Test & Measurement

Digital Process Measurement is now producing a range of handheld process control calibrators with trend functions. Designed for precision calibration and measurement, the company says that Calog fits comfortably into the palm of a hand, can hold enough charge for up to 20 hours of continuous work and is robust to withstand tough environments. For quick source value set-up, Calog uses the 'key-per-digit' numeric setting feature that enables the user to scroll each digit up or down for the five digits of the required value.

The base product is a loop calibrator for all powered and non-powered milliamp loops. The unit measures and sources up to 24 mA with a programmable 1 µA resolution, measures 32 V with a 1 mV resolution and there is a continuity check feature. Display can be in actual value, percentage or trend logging with programmable time interval. Calog has a selectable built-in 24 V power supply for field transmitters.

All the necessary capabilities in a sophisticated calibrator such as increment, auto-step, auto-ramp and valve stroking functions are available.

In the design of Calog, particular importance was given to the housing to ensure a rugged construction. A rubber boot - supplied as standard - has raised upper and lower ends to protect the keypad and screen. This non-slip boot also holds the calibrator firmly when working on smooth surfaces.

Other models in the Calog calibrator range are versions for thermocouples, process, loadcell, pressure and RTD.
