The 3000A Series multiproduct calibrators have been designed to help you and your business, allowing a wide range of calibration work to be performed quickly, accurately and economically. Modern calibration is a competitive market, and cost effective equipment and software are key considerations.

The 3000A Series calibrators offer the widest workload coverage of any calibration system presently available. The unique concept of external calibration adapters, combined with built-in measurement capability, dramatically extends the range of instruments that can be cost-effectively calibrated.

Consisting of 3 models ranging from 8ppm to 50ppm, the 3000A Series Multiproduct Calibrator provides a solution for your laboratory workload requirements.

Wide Workload Coverage

The 3000 series offers the widest workload coverage of any multi-product calibrator, with the ability to calibrate 18 types of instrument. It has the power to drive older analogue instruments alongside the accuracy to calibrate modern digital instruments.

The 3000 series features three models designed to suit every budget and accuracy requirement, and with a wide range of options that allow your calibrator to be tailored to meet your needs, the 3000 series is expandable for future needs.

AUTOMATED CALIBRATION

Internal Options (Choose At Time Of Order)

PRT/RTD Temperature Simulation (Option PRT, Included in -SYS Models)

The PRT option simplifies calibration of high-accuracy resistance thermometers. Reliable readings are guaranteed regardless of measurement technique, because the calibrator uses passive precision resistors.When the PRT option is calibrated, the precise temperature values on the ITS-90 scale for PT-385 resistors are stored in the memory.  The values can be recalled and displayed every time a specific resistor is chosen, to allow accurate calibration.

When combined with the SIMRC option, an additional 2-Wire variable output is available, which enables simulation of any value.

Simulated Resistance & Capacitance (Option SIMRC, Included in -SYS Models)

This option allows for resistance calibration between cardinal points. It has a continuous resistance range between 0 Ohms and 1 GOhms, with variable capacitance from 0.95uF to 100mF.

This option enables calibration of multimeters with non-decade calibration points.

In addition to the functions provided by PWRSINE, PWRDDS enables harmonics and distortion to be added to the power output for calibration of power quality functions of advanced power meters.

Pre-programmed harmonics are loaded into memory, with custom waveform shapes able to be loaded into the calibrator through the included computer software for completely customized testing with waveforms with custom harmonic content.

 

For both PWRSINE and PWRDDS:

Any voltage up to 1025V can be set, with a maximum current output of 30A without the need for external current amplifiers, allowing up to 1.5MW of power to be simulated.

The power function is very easy to use through intuitive menu design.
