Fluke Australia announces the release of a new precision temperature scanner designed to deliver best-in-class accuracy for critical measurements.
The 1586A Super-DAQ precision temperature scanner from Fluke Calibration, a leader in precision calibration instrumentation and software, offers up to 40 analogue input channels and scan rates as fast as 10 channels per second.
Designed for data acquisition (DAQ) in the factory and temperature calibration in the lab, the Super-DAQ is ideal for applications such as thermal mapping, process sensor calibration, quality control testing, lifecycle testing, process monitoring and environmental testing common in various industries including pharmaceutical, biotechnology, food processing, aerospace and automotive.
Fluke’s 1586A Super-DAQ precision temperature scanners combine the flexibility of both internal and external input modules, and are designed for use on the factory floor where channel count and scan speeds are important, and in the calibration laboratory where accuracy and quick input connections are required.
The 1586A can measure thermocouples, platinum resistance thermometers (PRTs), thermistors, DC current, DC voltage and resistance. It offers best-in-class temperature measurement accuracy of ± 0.005°C for PRTs, 0.5°C for thermocouples, and 0.002°C for thermistors.
Key features of the Super-DAQ precision temperature scanners include a colour display with channel indicators that can chart up to four channels simultaneously, four modes of operation (scan, monitor, measure, and digital multimeter), alarms that indicate when a channel measurement exceeds an assigned high or low limit, 20 MB of on-board memory for storing data and configuration files, a USB port to collect and store files directly to a USB drive, a LAN interface for easy connection to PCs and networks, and a dedicated RS-232 interface to control Fluke Calibration drywells or temperature baths for automated tests.
