EUROTHERM's 0.015 per cent accurate process calibrator, the MemoCal 2000 is now available with a companion desk-top module stand incorporating RS232C/RS485 converter.
This new feature allows the MemoCal to be added onto an RS485 network, allowing multiple pieces of equipment to be sourced and measured simultaneously.
Interfacing multiple desktop cradles to a single PC, allows data from various sources can be monitored and controlled at a single source.
The MemoCal 2000 can measure and simulate all common types of thermocouple, RTD, mV, voltage, mA and resistance signals. Double linearisation standards are provided for thermocouples and RTD.
The calibrator has a very low temperature drift of 0.1μV/°C. It is powered from standard AA size batteries with standby mode for long battery life.
Supplied with an in-built bi-directional RS232 interface for remote programming and data recording by personal computer.
Advanced features include autoranging during measurement and generation, square root extraction and quadratic signal generation and programmable scaling for mA, mV and V measurement and generation.
A built-in 24V dc power supply for two-wires transmitter excitation and measurement is provided. For exact thermocouple measurement requirements a programmable external cold junction compensation value can be set.
Direct connection for all input types (no special connectors are required for thermocouple inputs). Peak and valley data hold functions are also provided.
For commissioning and batch testing up to 50 program steps (ramp, soak and step function) are available to create one or more programs. While two dry contact logic inputs for program advance/wait allow user interfacing once the program has been started.
The user interface is a two row by 16 characters alphanumeric LCD display with timed back lighted display. An ergonomic front panel with numerical multi function tactile keyboard and a menu driven display with parameters-naming capability allows user-friendly programming and information gathering from the MemoCal 2000.
