Londonderry, NH, United States, 2007/06/27 - Martel Calibrators releases the next generation in precision lab calibration instruments, the Millennium Series 3001 Calibrator. It is a calibrator for voltage, current, thermocouples, RTDs, pressure & has an isolated measurement channel - MartelCorp.com.
Martel Electronics Corporation (martelcalibrators.com) announces the availability of the Millennium Series 3001 Precision Laboratory Calibrator, the newest and most advanced of its family of laboratory grade multi-function calibrators. The precision laboratory calibrator combines the power and features of the M2001 (voltage, current, thermocouple, RTD and pressure) with a second completely isolated measurement channel for a single laboratory calibration instrument.
The 3001 calibrator’s extensive feature set is accessed through a simple-to-use and intuitive user interface with pushbutton selection of functions and two (2) clear brightly backlit displays. As a laboratory instrument, the DC accuracy is rated at ±0.0025% of reading. This great DC accuracy specification translates into similar performance for measuring and simulating temperature with thermocouples and RTDs.
The 3001 laboratory calibrator also includes a second isolated measurement channel to provide the complete loop for process instrument and transmitter calibration. The isolated measurement channel has two (2) voltage ranges (10 VDC and 100 VDC); milliAmp measurement to 52 mADC; available 24 VDC loop power; a user switched 250 Ohm in loop HART resistor and an accuracy of ±0.005% of reading on voltage ranges.
In voltage mode, the 3001 precision calibrator offers four (4) output ranges of 100 mV, 1 V, 10 V and 100 V DC. All voltage outputs settle to full specification in less than 200 milliseconds allowing use of the 3001 in automated calibration and testing systems.
As a high performance temperature calibrator, the 3001 has a typical RTD measurement accuracy is ±0.02° C, and simulation accuracy is an extremely stable ±0.05° C. Resolution is another strong point at 0.001° C for 100 Ohm Platinum RTDs. The lab calibrator can read or source any of 11 thermocouple types and millivolts, 9 RTD types and YSI 400 thermistors and Ohms.
As a pressure instrument, the pressure interface is compatible with Martel’s BetaPort-P digital pressure modules, which are available in 29 ranges and types from 10” WC to 10,000 PSI full scale. The calibrator is also compatible with pressure modules from Mensor and Fluke.
The 3001 calibrator includes both RS-232 and IEEE-488 serial interfaces for remote control applications using Martel’s fully documented ASCII protocol. The lab calibrator is also fully compatible with Fluke Met-Cal® metrology software.
Some of the other important and useful features include 5-way copper alloy binding posts, nine (9) user defined setpoints for each output mode and curve, 25 Ohm and 100 Ohm SPRT custom curves, separate bright backlit displays for I/O modes and the isolated measurement channel (each display is a large 16 character by 2 line LCD display) and standard 19” rack mounting ability.
