5430 Standard AC/DC Resistors

sku Product SKU:  FCL-5430

Six resistors in Fluke Calibration's Model 5430 series cover resistance values from 1 ohm to 10,000 ohms. Each one has an actual resistance within 10 ppm of its nominal value and holds its resistance within 2 ppm per year.

Each resistor comes with a Tinsley certificate on AC performance, traceable to NPL, including calibration uncertainty of 3 ppm. Additionally, Fluke Calibration can provide an optional DC certificate, traceable to NIST and NVLAP accredited, with uncertainty below 1 ppm.

Designed originally by a national lab, Tinsley resistors are bifilar wound to minimize reactance and are filled with oil to minimize both time- and temperature-caused instabilities. AC/DC transfer error at 90 Hz is only 0.1 ppm.

For maintaining your oil resistors, Fluke Calibration provides baths that range from 25- to 155-liter capacity with enough inside shelf space to maintain all your standard resistors. Each of these baths maintains your resistors within 1 mK in the short term (30–60 minutes) and within 5 mK for months at a time.

In our lab, we use both AC and DC bridges in addition to Super-Thermometers. We calibrate SPRTs in fixed points, and we calibrate reference resistors. We use standard resistors every day, and we understand the value of being able to rely on resistors that won’t drift. Tinsley makes the best AC/DC resistors around, and Fluke Calibration makes the best maintenance baths. Ask people who know. Then don’t compromise.

7750i Air Data Test Set

sku Product SKU:  FCL-7750i

  • The Model 7750i Air Data Test Set represents the latest generation Air Data Test Set (ADTS), incorporating a unique quartz sensor having unequalled precision and long term stability with the latest pressure control technology. The Model 7750i ADTS provides high performance measurement and control of all air data parameters.

    The Model 7750i is a laboratory ADTS for calibrating a wide variety of avionics instrumentation such as altimeters, airspeed indicators, rate of climb meters, Mach meters, air data computers and engine-based control systems that rely on accurate control and measurement of pressure. The 7750i can be used to calibrate devices that are required to meet the Reduced Vertical Separation Minimal (RVSM) requirements, controlling altitude to within two feet (better than 0.003 in Hg) at sea level. Additionally, the 7750i provides precision rate control for both altitude and airspeed.

    The Model 7750i is ideal for use in Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) systems. The seven-inch height (4U) allows easy integration into comprehensive test systems. Additionally, an IEEE-488 interface is provided for PC-based control. The 7750i can be set to emulate previous generation ADTS (Model 6610), eliminating the need to alter existing software.

    Automatic go to ground

    Upon selecting the go to ground command, the 7750i safely controls the pressure to the current, local barometric pressure. The user can then disconnect the device under test (DUT) without exposing sensitive instruments to a potential pressure transient or shock.

    Leak test mode

    A separate mode is provided for performing leak checks prior to beginning an actual calibration.

    Protecting the device under test

    In order to protect the DUT, the operator can program high and low limit settings for:

  • Altitude
  • Airspeed
  • Rate of climb
  • Mach
  • Negative Qc
  • ARINC 565 envelope
  • As with any instrument, regular zeroing is suggested to achieve maximum performance. This task is now automated and can be performed at the push of a button, or over the PC interfaces. The 7750i incorporates the vacuum sensor onboard; no separate or external vacuum gauges or sensors are required. In addition, only one vacuum pump is required to operate and zero the 7750i ADTS. Zeroing is performed in 30 to 45 minutes using the specified vacuum pump.

    Avionics and pressure units

    The Model 7750i displays the common avionics units including feet and meters for altitude, calibrated airspeed in knots, km/hr, and Mach with corresponding rate displays for each unit per minute. It can also display pressure units.

    High performance for fixed-wing or rotary aircraft

    Although the standard configuration offered is a Ps range of 32 in Hg and a Qc range of 68 in Hg, we also offer custom ranges. For example, for exclusive testing of rotary aircraft, a Qc range of 32 in Hg can be provided, increasing performance in the lower airspeed ranges. For other custom ranges please consult factory.   

    Automatic volume characterization

    The 7750i automatically tunes the controller into external volumes ranging from 80 to 1000 cubic centimeters (5 to 60 cubic inches). This allows a large degree of flexibility for the configuration of the test system and the type of aircraft and components to be tested. For component manufacturers, a large number of devices can be tested simultaneously on a single manifold.

Liquid Trap

sku Product SKU:  FCL-Liquid Trap

The 7000-102 Liquid Trap can be used with most any pneumatic test or calibration system where liquid contamination may be present in the device under test. Although the preferred procedure is to insure the device under test is free of both liquid and particulate contamination prior to calibration, the 7000-102 provides a degree of insurance to protect the calibration instrument.

The 7000-102 can be used with any calibrator, including the Model 7010 and complete line of Series 7215 Digital Pressure Controllers. It can assist with minimizing the possibility of contamination of the unique Ruska quartz sensor found in these instruments along with the control valves and solenoid valves, all of which are designed for pneumatic operation and can be damaged when exposed to liquids.  

The 7000-102 is also compatible with Druck’s line of pressure controllers including the DPI 515 and DPI 520 Digital Pressure Calibrators.

Further, the 7000-102 can be used with virtually any test or calibration system where the pressure does not exceed 3000 psi. 

A convenient drain valve allows periodic removal of accumulated liquids. Due to the pressure range, the level inside the Trap cannot be observed. Therefore it is recommended that the drain valve be opened on a frequent basis or prior to each test. A fitting is provided on the drain valve to allow connection to tubing that can run to a container for disposal.

The 7000-102 Liquid Trap is provided with a bench mount stand with two mounting holes for a sturdy installation.

AMETEK-CSW Series

sku Product SKU:  AME-CSW S

The CSW Series represents a new generation of AC/DC power sources that address the increasing demands on test equipment to perform additional functions at a lower cost. By combining a flexible AC/DC power source with a high performance power analyzer, the Compact CSW Series is capable of handling complex applications that have traditionally required multiple systems. The sleek integrated approach of the CSW avoids cable clutter that is commonly found in test systems. All connections are made internally and the need for digital multimeters, power harmonics analyzers, and current shunts or clamps is eliminated.

Since many components in the CSW are shared between the AC/DC source and the power analyzer, the total cost of the integrated system is less than the typical cost of a multiple unit system.

Easy to use controls 
The CSW Series is DSP controlled and can be operated from an easy to use front panel keypad. Functions are grouped logically and are directly accessible from the keypad. This eliminates the need to search through various levels of menus and/or soft keys. A large analog control knob can be used to quickly slew output parameters. This knob is controlled by a dynamic rate change algorithm that combines the benefits of precise control over small parameter changes with quick sweeps through the entire range.

AC, DC or AC+DC Output 
A direct coupled, transformerless design allows AC and DC on separate phases or on the same phase. The CSW can be used as a true DC power supply. High DC content waveforms (up to 312 volts) can be created with no derating of output power, even with 100% reactive loads, eliminating the need for a separate DC supply. Waveform programming is easily accomplished using the Graphical Users Interface software. Waveforms can be uploaded and modified from a digital scope. The waveforms can then be downloaded to the CSW and output to precisely simulate real-world conditions.

Ametek DC Power/Energy Absorber

sku Product SKU:  AME-DC Power/Energy Absorber

The Energy Absorber Test System includes power supplies and a regenerative energy absorber with a rating of 400VDC at ±150A. The system consists of DC power supplies, an AC distribution and interlock system, an energy absorber chassis and an absorber load resistor chassis. The power sources are equipped with a remote control option allowing control via GPIB or with front panel controls in local mode. The operation of the specific parts of the system is described in the sections below.

DC Power Supplies
The power supplies consist of two model types each rated for 0-400VDC at 75A. The SGI supply includes a GPIB programming interface and operates as the Master supply. The SGA supply is used as a Slave, operating as a voltage controlled current source. This Master/Slave operation is used to provide up to 400V at 150A for 60kW of output power. By operating in a Master/Slave configuration, the supplies operate as one unit that can be controlled from the Master unit through either local control or IEEE-488 operation. 
The DC power supplies contain a provision for voltage and current readback. The current readback on the front panel of the supplies is set up so that the SGI supply indicates the sum of both supplies. As used in this system, the power supply current monitoring indicates the actual power supplies output current. Regenerative current is not conducted through the power supplies due to a blocking diode in the Energy Absorber chassis so the system current readback is available separately.

Energy Absorber Load Chassis
The Energy Absorber Load chassis contains the regenerative resistive load element. The load consists of numerous high power resistors connected in series/parallel banks, creating a total resistance of approximately 1.5 Ohms at 30kW continuous and 60kW peak.

Energy Absorber Control Chassis
The Energy Absorber Control chassis contains primary and secondary voltage clamps consisting of an IGBT and an SCR. In addition, it contains a GPIB programmer and measurement circuitry and controls that provide drive signals to the power components. In the chassis, high current bus capacitors are connected between the output to limit the rate of rise of voltage (slew rate) allowing the IGBT to operate at a controlled frequency when an external Regen current pulse occurs and to store energy to provide high peak current pulses to the load. A blocking diode in series with the input power supplies is used to detect the direction and amplitude of current flow. A differential amplifier is used to monitor the voltage across the blocking diode and regulate it to a value programmed by the internal GPIB controller which is independent of the input voltage level. Since it is desirable in some tests to allow the voltage to increase above the normal voltage level during the Regen pulse event, the output occurring across the blocking diode is scaled so that the voltage that is fed to a comparator is proportional to the controllers D-A converter that is calibrated to this same voltage range. When currents from the actuator conduct back into the absorber chassis, the bus capacitor charges until the input to the comparator reaches the programmed threshold and activates a drive signal to turn on the power IGBT connecting the absorber load resistor across the output bus. The resistor discharges the output capacitor until a lower threshold voltage is reached on the comparator. In this manner, with the actuator Regen current providing the charging current and the absorber load resistor providing the discharge current, the bus capacitor bank voltage can be maintained at a constant level with approximately 5V peak to peak of ripple during the charge and discharge intervals. The Energy Absorber Control chassis also contains circuitry to activate AC input contactors, relays and power supply shutdown signals, which are enabled through a control connector. Also available are high bandwidth 0-10V analog circuitry proportional to the DC output voltage and current for monitoring with an oscilloscope or external analog system. The voltage and current monitors are also available on an internal GPIB controller in the Absorber chassis so that their values can be queried over the bus. Additional functions in the chassis include an OVP detector for a secondary protection SCR in the case of a power interruption, and front panel status LEDs to show the operating status of the OVP circuit, relays and contactors. The oscilloscope photo example shows the action of the power supplies and regen circuitry to a specific loading condition. The photo shows an expanded view of the output voltage where the charge and discharge intervals are more visible. The bottom trace is output current that on the Energy Absorber power rack during a pulsed regenerative event. The top trace (1) shows the output voltage programmed to 270VDC at 10V/div AC coupled. The lower trace (3) shows the load current at 100A/div being switched between a resistive load of 100A and the Regen current at 150A. The arrow at the center of the scope trace is the zero current level. The scope trace is shown at 4msec/div.

Communication
Communication to control the power supply outputs and readback of voltage and current in the power supplies is accomplished with a GPIB interface using standard SCPI commands. The power supplies can also be operated manually from the front panels. The Energy Absorber chassis includes a GPIB interface for programming the Regen clamping limit, input contactor closure, dropout relay closure and voltage and current readbacks. A GPIB connection is provided on the rear of the rack for both interfaces.

AC Control and Distribution
The power rack system includes an AC distribution system. With a DC output power rating of 60kW at 480VDC and 150A, the AC input current to the rack is 120A per phase with a 400VAC, 3 phase, 4 wire connection. AC power to the racks is through two pin and sleeve type connectors and routed through circuit breakers and the mains disconnect interlock contactors. The AC interlock operates by energizing relays which are operated by ON/OFF switch closures located on the front panel or with auxiliary switch closures which are available through a rear I/O panel connector. The ON/OFF panel contains two pushbutton switches, an ON pushbutton and a twist to lock OFF button. A door interlock and single point ground connection are also provided.

DC Output
DC output is through an MS type connector of suitable type and ampacity on the panel depicted in the image above. A mating connector is provided.
