LARGO, FLORIDA – AMETEK Calibration Instruments has introduced a new generation of handheld pressure calibrators designed to meet high accuracy pressure calibration applications. The JOFRA® HPC500 and HPC502 calibrators combine deadweight tester accuracy in a modern digital package with a host of user friendly capabilities. The HPC500 brings laboratory accuracy to an on-site, field-usable instrument.
The HPC500 and HPC502 family offers such features as user configurable information display, 15 different pressure units, transmitter supply, mA input, % error calculation, voltage measurement, serial communication and external pressure module capability. Each unit is available as an independent calibrator or in one of six ready-for-test systems that are complete and equipped to meet any pressure calibration need.
The HPC500 and HPC502 are suited for a broad range of applications from simple tool type jobs to complex calibration applications in custody transfer systems. The accuracy of the HPC is specified in % of reading to ensure even greater accuracy and wide applicable pressure range. The HPC500 is temperature compensated from 0 to 50oC (32 to 122oF) for on-site operation.
The HPC500 and HPC502 have a sixteen pressure ranges from 25mbar (0.35psi) to 700 bar (10,000 psi) with F.S. Absolute, differential and gauge sensors. It is accurate to +/- 0.025% of reading, 0.01% F.S. Single or dual sensor versions are available, eliminating the need for two separate calibrators. A whole selection of useful functions and features are available including damp, leak test, % error calculation, min/max, and switch test.
The rugged compact device has a large backlit graphical display a user friendly menu with icons that show current status and mode and one, two or three measurement windows to suit specific applications or needs. A dedicated zero test button to provide convenient zero before test helps ensure accuracy.
The HPC500 Series offers one installed transducer that is customer selectable up to 10,000 psi/700 bar including differential and absolute ranges. The HPC502 offers two installed transducers that are customer selectable.
More than 60 different JOFRA APM pressure modules extend the application base of the HPC calibrators by allowing calibrations in additional ranges. The APM modules are compatible with several other JOFRA calibrators. Instrument calibration can be performed locally without returning the unit to AMETEK. Adjustment software is art of its design. If factory calibration is required, the pump and calibrator are independent units, so only the calibrator needs to be returned.
The JOFRA HPC500 and HPC502 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®, CHATILLON® and MANSFIELD & GREEN® brand names.
