Fluke temperature calibrators deliver high accuracy in easy-to-use, single function tools

April 11, 2014 — Fluke Corp. introduces two single function calibrators for simulating process temperature sensors. For technicians who don’t want the complexity of multifunction test tools yet need highly accurate temperature calibration, the Fluke 712B RTD and 714B Thermocouple Temperature Calibrators allow instrument, process and plant maintenance technicians to quickly and easily test process temperature instrumentation.



The Fluke 712B measures and simulates 13 different resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) types and resistance and the 714B measures and simulates 17 different thermocouple types as well as millivolts, to verify process sensors by direct comparison of measured versus reported temperatures.

The calibrators also measure 4 to 20 mA signals with 0.001 mA resolution while simultaneously sourcing a temperature signal — with both readings displayed on the large, backlit display for easy transmitter calibration. They can scale the measured mA to the programmed 0 and 100 percent temperature settings to verify the 0 and 100 percent values scaled in a temperature transmitter. They also feature linear ramp and 25 percent step auto-ramp based on 0 and 100 percent settings.
 
Settings at power down are saved for easy restart of tests when the calibrator is powered back up. Both calibrators have built-in magnetic hanging tools for easy mounting while taking measurements.
