Fluke 729 improves calibration integrity
The new Fluke 729 Automatic Pressure Calibrator simplifies the calibration process by automatically generating precise test pressures, improving calibration integrity by compensating for leaks, and automatically documenting the pressure calibration process to help meet compliance and regulatory requirements.
With the rugged, portable 729, technicians simply input a target pressure and the calibrator automatically pumps to the desired set-point while the internal fine adjustment control stabilizes the pressure at the requested value, delivering more accurate results and speeding the calibration process.
The 729 features:
- Automatic pressure generation and control for multiple tests to 300 psi, (20 bar, 2 MPa).
- Easy calibration documentation using defined templates for transmitters and switches. Input the starting and ending test pressures and number of test points and the calibrator documents the applied pressure, measured mA, and percentage error for each test point.
- HART communication enabling mA output trim, trim to applied values, and pressure zero trimming of HART pressure transmitters, eliminating the need for an additional HART calibration.
- Measurement of mA signals on transmitter outputs and sourcing and simulation of mA signals for testing I/Ps and other mA loop devices. It includes a 24V loop power supply for testing and powering transmitters in standalone tests disconnected from the control system.
As part of the Fluke Connect® reliability platform, the 729 allows technicians to remotely monitor calibrations using the Fluke Connect mobile app as well as manage, store, and share pressure measurements and logging events.
