Fluke 750 Series Documenting Process Calibrators. The Fluke 750 Series does the work of several tools—sourcing, simulating, and measuring pressure, temperature, and electrical signals—in one rugged, hand-held device. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineers’ Choice finalist.The Fluke 750 Series Documenting Process Calibrators allow technicians to perform field calibrations and troubleshoot operations with superior speed. Process professionals have long relied on the 743/744 Documenting Process Calibrators for advanced instrument calibration, especially in rugged environments. Operating the 750 Series is so similar to operating the 743/744 that existing users will be able to immediately start using the 750 Series. No training is required to get substantially increased performance from the new models, according to Fluke Corp. These field tools calibrate temperature, pressure, voltage, current, resistance, and frequency and have three operating modes—measure, source, or simultaneous measure/source—enabling technicians to troubleshoot, calibrate, or maintain instrumentation with just one tool.

The 750 Series features an easy-to-follow, menu-driven display that guides users through tasks. Programmable calibration routines enable technicians to create and run automated as-found/as-left procedures to ensure fast, consistent calibrations. The recorded results can then be easily downloaded to a PC via the USB port, eliminating the need for manual transcription.

Improvements over the original model include a brighter graphical display that allows readings to be seen in any light condition. Another improvement is the rechargeable Li-ion battery pack, which provides enough power for an entire shift and can be charged from within the calibrator.

The 754 model is the first field calibrator for HART instruments that is both powerful and easy to use. It offers fast HART communication and requires no external box or secondary tool to perform everyday HART calibration and maintenance. The 754 is easy to update as additional instruments are added and new HART versions are released, and is backed by the service and support of Fluke, a member of the HART Communications Foundation.
