The Advanced Modular Calibration System from GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies is a hand-held test and calibration system that combines an advanced, multi-function calibrator with world class pressure measurement and generation capability, the company says. Its modular concept allows its discrete components to be used as stand-alone instruments, allowing flexibility in cost of ownership and in functionality.

It uses three basic components to perform duties formerly requiring a wide range of instruments: electrical, frequency, and temperature calibrators.

The compact and robust multi-function unit can measure and source mA, mV, V, Ohms, frequency, and a variety of RTDs and thermocouples, GE says. Pressure measurement is provided by interchangeable pressure modules that attach to the calibrator via a carrier. The calibrator and the pressure modules can also attach to a pressure generation station to form a fully integrated, high-performance pressure calibrator. Three pressure stations are available, enabling the generation of pneumatic pressure from 95% vacuum to 20 bar or up to 100 bar while hydraulic pressure capability is 0 to 1000 bar.

The weatherproof multi-function DPI 620 calibrator is said to be two to three times smaller, and weighs less than a third of its nearest competitor and has one of the largest and brightest displays, according to GE. www.gesensing.com
