Test Equipment Connection Announces Product Support for Discontinued Altek Calibrators.

Test Equipment Connection Announces Product Support for Discontinued Altek Calibrators. The PRACTICAL INSTRUMENT ELECTRONICS calibrator products are the models 820, 334plus, 434, 422, 311 & 541. The models 311 & 434 for Altek have been discontinued so these are the best and easiest RTD & mA calibrator on the market with some patent features and back lit displays. The model 820 is a great hand held calibrator that does over 7 different calibration operating in one small package. The new mulitfunction calibrator model PIECAL 820 is now available and is CE approved.

Key features of the PIECAL 820 (new for 2012) include:

  •     Lighten up your toolbox

Pocket sized calibrator replaces toolbox of single function devices
Milliamp • Voltage • Frequency
Thermocouples • RTDs • Check Continuity

  •     Technician friendly operation

Intuitive EZ-DIAL Double Click Menu makes it easier to setup than
other multifunction calibrators. Uses the same menus as the single
function PIECAL Evolution Calibrators.
•Use it as a milliamp and voltage calibrator
Source 0.00 to 24.00 mA, 0.00 to 10.25 V dc and 0.00 to 80.00 mV
Read to 24.00 mA, 00.00 to 10.25 V 0.0 to 60.0 V and and 0.00 to 80.00 mV
Simulate 2-Wire Transmitters
Power up transmitters & loops with the built-in 24 V power supply.
Simplify HART hookups with built-in 250 Ohm resistor

  •     Calibrate directly in temperature (°C & °F)

The PIECAL 820 works with the instruments you use.
Types J, K, T, E, R, S, B, N, G, C, D, L (J DIN), U (T DIN) and P
(Platinel II)
Pt 100 Ohm (3850, 3902, 3916, 3926) & 1000 Ohm (3850)
Copper 10 & 50 Ohm, Nickel 100 and 120 Ohm

  •     Checkout flow and vibration systems

Source & read frequency to 2000 CPM (Counts-Per-Minute), 999.00
Hz, 9999.9 Hz, 9.9999 kHz & to 20.000 kHz

  •     Troubleshoot loop & wiring problems

'Beep' out connections with the built-in continuity checker

  •     Easy to read

Turn on the backlight & easily see the display in dark areas of the plant

  •     Quickly set any three outputs plus automatic stepping & ramping

Easily set any value quickly with the adjustable "DIAL" plus store any three output settings for instant recall with the EZ-CHECK™ switch. Choose between 2, 3, 5 & 11 steps to automatically increment the output in 100%, 50%, 25% or 10% of span. Select RAMP to smoothly increase and decrease the output between Zero and Span. Set step/ramp time to match your system from 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 60 seconds.

  •     Measure temperature sensors, frequency pickups, loop currents and voltage levels

Check the values of your process sensors. Instantly recall MAX and MIN values to see process variability
