May 31, 2018 - Crystal Engineering, a unit of AMETEK Sensors, Test & Calibration, has added an automatic calibration reminder system to its XP2i pressure gauge. The system is designed to reduce the possibility of using gauges after their calibration dates and potentially incurring regulatory fines.
Manual record-keeping and notifications are replaced by customizable on-screen alerts prior to the due date, warning alerts on and after the due date, and an optional capability to lock the gauge from use after its calibration due date. Dates, reminders and message types are set by supervisors through free software.
The intrinsically safe XP2i gauge offers pressure recording in the harshest environments, from offshore to desert to the Arctic. Features include an IP-67 rated, marine-grade enclosure, a fast pressure safety valve (PSV) mode, custom engineering units, and a leak-free pressure fitting connection.
Active Digital Temperature Compensation corrects the sensor for changes in temperature. It is guaranteed to 0.1% of reading accuracy from -10 to 50° C. Every XP2i comes with an ISO 17025 calibration report – NIST-traceable, A2LA accredited, internationally recognized by ILAC–with test data at 5 temperatures.
