Multiproduct calibrator

10 November 2010 Test & Measurement

Comtest Technologies has released Fluke’s 5500E entry-point multiproduct calibrator to the South African market.

Aimed at calibration laboratories, small in-house calibration and repair workshops and meter manufacturers who require production and test calibration capabilities, the 5500E has the basic performance and functions needed for electronic test instrument calibration. These include the ability to calibrate digital multimeters and clamp meters to comply with ISO 9000 or other quality standards. It can also be used to calibrate bench multimeters (up to 4,5 digits), panel meters, electronic thermometers, chart recorders, oscilloscope recorders, XY recorders and data loggers.

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 M. The calibrator 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.
