Test Equipment Connection announces new line of products from Practical Instrument Electronics (PIE) calibrators to replace discontinued Altek products.
The following Practical Instrument Electronics models are replacements for Altek products beginning October, 2012:
PIE 532 replaces Altek 934
PIE 541 replaces Altek 942 or 941
PIE 434 replaces Altek 434
PIE 311 replaces Altek 311
PIE 510B or 511B replaces Altek 11
PIE 520B or 521B replaces Altek 22
The Practical Instrument Electronics Model 311, 510B, 511B, and 525 are the industry’s premier handheld RTD calibrators. These small, lightweight, rugged calibrators eliminate the need for large and clumsy decade boxes and confusing RTD conversion tables. The models feature long battery life, selectable Celsius or Fahrenheit, and pulsed excitation current compatibility.
The PIECAL 434, 532 and 535 are the industry’s premier handheld milliamp (mA) calibrators. These units feature fuse-less protection, rugged design, long battery life, and displays measurements in either mA or %.
The PIE 541 is the industry’s premier handheld frequency calibrator. The unit features long battery life, rugged design, and a gate-time LED. The 541 can trigger up to 120V in read mode and can generate waves with amplitude of up to 12V in source mode. The unit also operates in a counting operation. The 541 can function as a totalizer with a user-defined stop time, eliminating the need for a stopwatch.
Features and benefits of the PIECAL 311:
Calibrate with Ease
Source and Read Multiple RTD Curves plus Ω
Automatically Detect 2, 3 & 4 Wire Connections
Guaranteed Compatible with all Instrumentation(Works with Rosemount & Honeywell Smart Transmitters, PLCs, DCSs, Multi-channel Recorders and other pulsed excitation devices).
Easily Change RTD Types & Scale
All PIECAL Calibrators come with a free signed and dated certificate.
Features and benefits of the PIE 541:
5 ranges from 1CPH to 20.000KHz for source and read
Totalize inputs/outputs from 1 to 99999 in 1.0 to 100.0 minutes
Read a wide range of frequencies and waveforms from 50mV to 120V peak
Source sine and square waves, zero based, or zero crossing
Gate trigger LED flashes in synch with the output frequency. This allows easy adjustment of the attenuation for proper gate triggering
Superior battery life of 45 hours under typical continuous usage
Small, tough and protected to 60V
NIST Traceable Calibration Certificate included FREE
