AMETEK Test & Calibration Instruments introduces a new portable multi-signal calibrator featuring an intuitive interface that allows all functions to be controlled from the main screen for ease of use.
Designed to provide laboratory accuracy for field calibration, process monitoring and maintenance functions, the new JOFRA ASC-400 multi-signal calibrator allows technicians to use as many as 11 different functions without referring to documentation.
The multi-signal calibrators meet the calibration demands of modern sensors and transmitters for numerous functions in process control, systems engineering and maintenance. The instrument finds use in power generation, process engineering, oil and gas production and distribution, chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, food processing, precision manufacturing, pulp and paper, water supply and sewerage treatment, metalworking, hydraulics and electrical applications.
Key features of the JOFRA ASC-400 multi-signal calibrators include high contrast, full-colour screen and full numeric keyboard; compact profile allowing operation with one hand; capable of sourcing with simultaneous read-back from device-under-test of mA, V, pulsed transmitters, pressure and temperature; time saving functions such as automatic switch test, leak test, scaling and online % error calculation performed; and fast RTD simulation. The calibrator works with pulsed transmitters and PLCs, and can be used as a high-accuracy thermometer.
When paired with the new CPF Series pressure modules from AMETEK Crystal Engineering, the ASC-400 becomes a true pressure calibrator achieving accuracies down to 0.025% of reading unaffected by temperature in the range from -10°C to 50°C.
The ASC-400 offers simultaneous input and output, allowing a transmitter to be calibrated and adjusted with no need for additional equipment.
