April 5, 2019 – AMETEK Sensors, Test and Calibration (STC) introduced the intrinsically safe HPC50 pressure calibrator. The pressure calibrator is part of the company’s Crystal line of pressure products and offers features, like scaling, percent error and flow calculations, as well as internal and external pressure modules into a single handheld unit.
The HPC50 pressure calibrator uses a similar non-menu interface to the one found in the HPC40 series calibrator. This single-layer interface has no deep menu structure, allowing users to perform tasks. Intelligent memory slots allow storage of up to five screens, for the recall of previously stored settings and user setups.
The calibrator offers deadweight tester accuracy along with features that deliver laboratory accuracy to an on-site, field usable instrument. The HPC50 is suitable for calibrating pressure ranging from vacuum to 15,000 psi / 1000 bar with accuracy up to 0.035% of reading. It is intended for process control applications, such as verification or calibration of pressure gauges, transducers, transmitters, pressure switches, and safety valves.
Units are available in single and dual pressure models. Users can equip each with one or two intrinsically safe external pressure or temperature modules.
All parameters on the HPC50 series are fully temperature compensated from -20 to 50°C, enabling it to deliver the same accuracy whether measuring pressure, current, voltage, or temperature.
