(AMETEK: Largo, FL) -- AMETEK Test and Calibration Instruments has expanded the capabilities of its versatile JOFRA HPC600 handheld pressure calibrator. The instrument’s built-in electric pump now allows the calibrator to achieve pressure and vacuum generation up to 20 bar/300 psi with the single touch of a button. Previously the top range was 10 bar/150 psi. Each unit also is individually temperature compensated from –10°C to 50°C (14° to 122°F) for accurate on-site operations, regardless of temperature conditions.
In addition to its enhanced capabilities, the HPC600 offers a true multifunction solution for a broad range of high-accuracy pressure calibration applications, from simple tool-type jobs to complex custody-transfer systems. The device features a user-configurable information display, 15 different pressure units, mA input/output, percentage-error calculation, voltage measurement, serial communications, and an external pressure module capability.
The HPC600 is a superior pressure calibrator for field use. The accuracy of the HPC is specified in percentage of reading to ensure an even better accuracy and more applicable pressure range. The multifunctional device features an intuitive operating system and is designed to work as a pressure indicator, pressure calibrator, a complete mA loop calibrator (including 24-volt supply), a voltmeter, thermometer, and pressure/vacuum generator. All are in a single rugged housing that fits in the palm of the hand.
The calibrator is delivered as a ready-to-test system, complete with hose, fittings, and soft case equipped to meet any need for pressure calibration. A calibration certificate, which includes vacuum and electrical parameters, comes standard.
More than 60 different JOFRA APM pressure modules extend the application base of the HPC600 by allowing calibrations in additional ranges. The APM modules are engineered for on-site or laboratory use and are compatible with several other JOFRA calibrators.
The JOFRA HPC600 family of handheld pressure calibrators are part of a comprehensive line of pressure, temperature, and force-measurement and calibration products marketed by AMETEK Calibration Instruments under the JOFRA, Lloyd Instruments, Chatillon, and Mansfield & Green brand names.
