4322 Automated Pressure Calibration System

sku Product SKU:  FCL-4322

4322 AUTOMATED PRESSURE CALIBRATION SYSTEM COMPONENTS

4322 PRESSURE CONTROLLER

The 4322 Pressure Controller is the primary component of the 4322 Automated Pressure Calibration System and is itself a highly capable calibrator. Very wide range measurement and control capabilities and advanced features are packed into one transportable, easy-to-use package.

SIMPLE, ACCURATE PRESSURE MEASUREMENTS

The 4322 Pressure Controller provides 0.1% of reading total one-year measurement uncertainty from low pressure to 10,000 psi (70 MPa). The simple yet accurate percent-of-reading measurement performance enables you to calibrate a wide range of workload with confidence that the test uncertainty radio (TUR) is adequate.

Four plug-and-play pressure measurement modules and a barometric pressure module are responsible for the pressure controller’s very wide measurement range. The 4322 switches module ranges automatically and seamlessly during use to utilize the best pressure module for each test point and operation mode.

All pressure modules store characterization and calibration information onboard and are interchangeable between systems to simplify calibration support and prevent downtime. Modules can be removed easily and replaced through the front panel with finger-tight fasteners.

Each 4322 Pressure Controller pressure measurement module features three redundant pressure sensors. The output of the three sensors is averaged automatically to reduce overall measurement uncertainty. The patented CalCheck feature automatically monitors and compares all three sensors to detect damage or out-of-tolerance conditions in the module, preventing potential measurement escapes before they can result in critical errors and costly recalls.

AUTOMATED PRESSURE GENERATION AND CONTROL

The 4322 Pressure Controller features automated pressure control from low absolute and negative gauge pressures to 10,000 psi (70 MPa). With breakthrough high-speed piezoresistive valve technology, the 4322 Pressure Controller can set and precisely control pressure to its highest range more quickly than even any other high-end benchtop or rack-mount controller available.

The pressure controller also features onboard automated vacuum and pressure generation and control, for calibrating devices from less than 1 inHg (0.5 psi, 3.5 kPa) absolute to 300 psi (2 MPa), without any external pressure or vacuum source. Patented pump-control technology enables the pressure controller to control faster, generate lower absolute pressure and control more precisely than other pump-based pressure calibrators.

The 4322 Pressure Controller offers adjustable control setting and multiple control modes to most efficiently meet the precision needs for the UUT being calibrated.

INTEGRATED CONTAMINATION PREVENTION SYSTEM

The 4322 Pressure Controller features an integrated contamination prevention system (CPS) to prevent contamination that can lead to costly downtime, damage and measurement errors. The CPS prevents liquid and particulate contamination from entering the pressure controller by maintaining unidirectional flow away from the controller. Upward pressure excursions are accomplished when the controller introduces clean supply gas into the test circuit through the CPS. Downward pressure excursions are accomplished through a purge solenoid valve located on the CPS, external to the pressure controller. Rather than being drawn into the controller, the gas and any liquid it has drawn out of the UUT are expelled through the CPS into a waste bottle for disposal.

As an extra level of protection against cross contamination of UUTs, Fluke Calibration designed the CPS to be modular and easily exchanged. You can remove and replace a CPS module from the 4322 Pressure Controller in just seconds and with only one hand. Color-coded CPS modules are available to separate “clean” from “dirty” service. You can open and clean the CPS assembly itself in just minutes without tools.

INTUITIVE USER INTERFACE

The 4322 Pressure Controller features rubberized direct function keys for common operations and a keypad for numerical entry. A rotary selection/jog wheel allows you to quickly increase and decrease pressure during a pressure calibration and navigate efficiently through the menus.

The advanced graphical user interface (GUI) makes it easy to review and edit calibrator settings; set up, store and execute test profiles; store results; and print calibration reports directly to any standard printer. The 4322 also features a full library of remote SCPI operation functions that you can access through USB 2.0 type B, IEEE 488.2 or RS-232 connections for full automation.

Despite being one of the most advanced, high-performance and feature-packed pressure calibrators available, the GUI makes the 4322 Pressure Controller remarkably easy to use. The “Normal” operating mode makes everyday calibration activities simple to perform, while the “Advanced” mode enables more experienced users to fully utilize the advanced features.

In “Normal Mode” operation, only necessary information is displayed as you are prompted through setup and execution of a calibration. The top half of the display consists of a window that clearly communicates pressure measurement and control values and settings. The bottom half of the display houses an instructional menu system that guides you step by step as you set up and execute pressure calibration sequences in an intuitive, linear workflow process. Calibration results with pass/fail criteria are displayed during the calibration and can be saved for electronic download at a later time. You can generate and send a calibration report directly to a standard printer via a USB connection on the pressure controller.

“Advanced Mode” allows you to control and measure pressure without stepping through a structured calibration sequence. Use this mode to access settings, data, and less-frequently needed information.

4322 PRESSURE INTENSIFIER

The 4322 Pressure Intensifier boosts supply gas from the N2 gas cylinder or other source of clean gas medium to as high as 10,500 psi for high-pressure calibrations.

The pressure intensifier employs a patented rotary cam design that drives four pistons to quickly generate the targeted output pressure. Because pressure is generated by four pistons operating in series with alternating compression cycles, the 4322 Pressure Intensifier produces smooth high-pressure output, instead of the significant pressure surges typical with traditional single-piston gas boosters.

The pressure intensifier is powered by a high-performance brushless servo motor drive with variable speed control, resulting in quiet operation that does not require facility-grade compressed air to drive it, or liquid lubrication.

To operate, simply select the target intensifier pressure from 1,000 to 10,000 psi (7 to 70 MPa) in 1,000 psi (7 MPa) increments by pushing the appropriate key on the pressure intensifier’s membrane keypad. The pressure intensifier controls the variable speed motor to generate and actively maintain the pressure supplied to the pressure controller.

The 4322 Pressure Intensifier generates pressure fast enough to keep pace with the 4322 Pressure Controller’s gas consumption during a typical calibration. On-demand pressure generation saves you from having to pre-charge a highpressure accumulator, thus reducing setup and operation time and improving safety.

4322 ACCESSORIES

Accessories enable you to optimize a 4322 Automated Pressure Calibration System for various applications.

HANDHELD REMOTE CONTROL PENDANT

Worksites do not always allow easy access to pressure measurement devices for calibration. The 4322 Handheld Remote Control Pendant enables you to calibrate even the most difficult-to-reach pressure devices while safely and effectively positioning both user and equipment.

The remote pendant is lightweight, compact and rugged. A rotary wheel, rubberized function keys and backlit graphical user interface mimic the controls and user interface on the 4322 Pressure Controller to allow one-handed pressure control and step-by-step execution of calibration sequences. The remote pendant features electrical switch test connections and test leads for fully automated pressure switch testing.

When combined with an optional 10 ft. (3 m) test hose, you can operate with agility in a tight or difficult workspace.

You might use the pendant to perform tasks like these:

  • Operate the calibrator while reading the output of the UUT at a remote terminal, or from an otherwise obstructed angle.
  • Set the calibrator on the floor or other stable surface while reading the output of the UUT at a different height.
  • Stand at a safe distance or behind a barrier when performing calibrations in a hazardous location.

PORTABLE COMPRESSED GAS CYLINDER ASSEMBLY

An optional portable compressed gas cylinder is available to supply gas to the 4322 Pressure Calibration System for operation above the maximum pressure controller pump pressure of 300 psi (2 MPa). The lightweight, aluminum cylinder features a shut-off valve with protective valve guard and a soft shoulder strap for portability.

The cylinder can be charged with up to 2,000 psi (14 MPa) supply gas for in-situ calibration. A removable self-venting regulator and high-pressure supply hose with quick-connection adaptors are included so you can quickly and safely connect the cylinder to the 4322 Pressure Controller or Pressure Intensifier.

Note: The 4322 Portable Gas Cylinder is certified according to United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) regulations. Use, refill and transportation of the gas cylinder may be subject to local regulation and/or prohibited from use in certain locations.

HIGH-PRESSURE FLEXIBLE HOSES AND ADAPTORS

The 4322 Automated Pressure Calibration System features test connection and hose options to further improve ease of use and safety.

High-pressure connections in the 4322 Automated Pressure Calibration System feature the Fluke Calibration IQC70 system. IQC70 adaptors are Interlocking quick-connect pressure fittings with working pressure of up to 10,000 psi (70 MPa). The male adaptor (stem) inserts easily into the female adaptor (coupler), where it snaps in and is held in place by retaining pins in the coupler. To disconnect, simply push a collar on the coupler, which releases the stem from the retaining pins. Applying pressure to the connection locks the collar and pins into place, preventing the stem and coupling from disconnecting until pressure is removed from the system.

The supply, output and test ports of the 4322 Pressure Controller, CPS and Pressure Intensifier are IQC70 couplers. IQC70 stem adaptors are available for various pressure connection types and sizes, allowing you to mount UUTs directly and easily to the 4322 Pressure Controller test port during calibration. The innovative IQC70 design allows the stem to rotate in the coupling even when pressurized, so you can position the UUT for best visibility.

Optional 10-foot (3 meter) test hoses are available to extend the test port if the UUT cannot mount directly to the pressure controller. The 4322 test hoses are rated to 10,000 psi (70 MPa) working pressure, yet are extremely light and flexible. A stainless steel braided sheath protects the durable high-pressure hose from accidental pinching or shearing. Test hoses are color-coded consistently with the CPS modules, so you can easily see the difference between “clean” and “dirty” service plumbing.

CONFIGURING A 4322 AUTOMATED PRESSURE CALIBRATION SYSTEM

4322 Automated Pressure Calibration System components can be combined in different configurations to meet a variety of needs for portability and performance.

4322 PRESSURE CONTROLLER UNIT ONLY

With only ac mains power, the unit delivers automated vacuum and pressure control and measurement from 0.5 psi (3.5 kPa) absolute to 300 psi (2 MPa).

4322 PRESSURE CONTROLLER WITH PORTABLE NITROGEN GAS CYLINDER ASSEMBLY

PG9602 Piston Gauge

sku Product SKU:  FCL-PG9602

INNOVATIONS TO MINIMIZE UNCERTAINTY

Two decades ago, DH Instruments PG7000 family of piston gauges introduced the advantages of on-board sensing and monitoring technology, as well as other performance and ergonomic enhancements. The PG9000 platform adds several innovations to improve pressure measurements even further.

The platform consists of a piston gauge base, terminal and new remote electronics module. The terminal is the user interface. It stores metrological component data, reports operating and ambient condition status and calculates pressure.

The PG9000 piston gauge base supports automatic piston-cylinder rotation and mass handling, but all of the electronics to support the sensors and rotation control have been relocated to a remote electronics module. This architecture supports the best possible temperature stability at the base, even with prolonged vacuum operation, since any significant sources of heat are located away from the base.

The PG9602 mounting post has two integrated PRTs for reduced piston-cylinder temperature uncertainty. The PRTs are easily removed for calibration. A capacitance diaphragm gauge is included in the optional vacuum reference hardware for making residual vacuum measurements in absolute mode. PG9602 can also integrate the measurement output from virtually any user-supplied vacuum sensor.

METROLOGY SUPPORTED BY AUTOMATION

AMH automated mass handling technology is expanded on PG9602 to provide gauge and absolute operation with up to a 100 kg mass load. Eliminating manual mass loading minimizes mechanical wear, improving mass stability. The automated mass handler operates inside the evacuated bell jar, so the time to release and draw a vacuum while changing masses between test points is eliminated. The sustained vacuum produces lower and more static residual vacuum values. Total test time and productivity are greatly improved, especially on absolute pressure tests. More importantly, full automation promotes highly consistent measurements and allows extensive tests with many test points that would be impractical to perform manually. And with the help of calibration management software like COMPASS® for Pressure, tests can be run fully unattended.

MIC-9611B

Microchip Technology 9611B

sku Product SKU:  MIC-9611B-02

The 9611B switch and distribution system is an intelligent switching, monitoring and distribution system, packaged in a 1U rack-mount chassis.
The 9611B can be set up to distribute a wide range of signal formats; low noise sine waves, IRIG timecodes or pulse formats from either one of two inputs to all twelve outputs. The 9611B allows the user to deploy one model type to support multiple signaling formats which lowers support and logistics costs.
The 9611B provides for both manual and auto-switching signal distribution. When in auto-switching mode, the 9611 will detect any input or output failure based on the signal type being propagated. In the Auto mode, any input failure causes the unit to switch from Primary to Secondary source. Alarms will be indicated by all user interfaces including the front panel and Command Line Interface

 User Interfaces 

The 9611B is controlled through two user interfaces: front panel controls and indicators, and a command line interface (CLI) over a RS-232 serial port connection. 

Front Panel Controls and Indicators 

The 9611B processes two signal inputs (A and B). Either input may be designated primary and the other as secondary. In auto mode, the unit will automatically switch from primary to secondary in the event that the primary input fails. There are three push buttons (input A, auto, and input B) that allow the input mode to be selected. Pressing input A or input B will force the selected input to be sent to all channels to use the selected input. Pressing auto will activate the automatic switchover mode. The twelve LEDs, numbered one through twelve, are either green to indicate that the channel signal is present and active or red to indicate that the channel signal has failed.

 When any alarm (A, B, or 1–12) is set, the alarm indicator turns from green (normal) to red (alarm). Once the failure is remedied, the alarm can be deactivated by pressing the alarm pushbutton, or issuing a command over the CLI. If the alarm is cleared, all alarm indicators return to the normal green color. 

Command Line Interface 

The 9611B instrument has a serial port interface. Communication between the instrument is achieved by running a communications program on a PC and connecting the RS-232 serial ports of the PC and 9611B through a serial cable.

Fluke Calibration 5901 Triple Point of Water Cells

sku Product SKU:  FCAL-5901

Must-have, primary temperature standards

  • Easy-to-use, inexpensive standard with uncertainty better than ± 0.0001 °C
  • Four sizes and two shells (glass and quartz) to choose from
  • Isotopic composition of Vienna Standard Mean Ocean Water

The triple point of water (TPW) is not only the most accurate and fundamental temperature standard available, it’s also one of the least expensive and simplest to use.

Water cells are essential!

Triple point of water cells fill four critical purposes. First, they provide the most reliable way to identify unacceptable thermometer drift between calibrations—including immediately after a calibration if the thermometer has been shipped. Interim checks are critical for maintaining confidence in thermometer readings between calibrations. Second, they provide a critical calibration point with unequaled uncertainties.

Third, for users who characterize probes using ratios (that is, they use the ratios of the resistances at various ITS-90 fixed points to the resistance of the thermometer at the triple point of water, indicated by “W"), interim checks at the triple point of water allow for quick and easy updates to the characterizations of critical thermometer standards, which can be used to extend calibration intervals.

And lastly, the triple point of water is where the practical temperature scale (ITS-90) and the thermodynamic temperature scale meet, since the triple point of water is assigned the value 273.16 K (0.01 °C) by the ITS-90 and the Kelvin is defined as 1/273.16 of the thermodynamic temperature of the triple point of water.

Good triple point of water cells contain only pure water and pure water vapor. (There is almost no residual air left in them.) When a portion of the water is frozen correctly and water coexists within the cell in its three phases, the “triple point of water" is realized. Fluke Calibration water cells achieve this temperature with expanded uncertainties of less than 0.0001 °C and reproducibilities within 0.00002 °C.

In simple terms, water cells are made from just glass and water, but there’s much more to it than that!

For starters, that’s not just any water in there.

IMG-BlueSkyGNSSFirewall

Microchip Technology BlueSky GNSS Firewall

sku Product SKU:  MIC-BlueSkyGNSSFirewall

Protects GNSS Systems against spoofing and jamming threats

The vulnerability of GNSS systems to various signal incidents is well documented. The rapid proliferation of GNSS systems has embedded these vulnerabilities into critical national infrastructure as well as corporate infrastructures that rely on GNSS-delivered position, navigation and timing (PNT) for daily operations. The widespread deployment of GNSS makes it impractical to replace all fielded GNSS systems in a timely or cost-effective manner.

Microchip provides a portfolio of technologies, products, and services that enables operators of Critical Infrastructure to construct a secure and robust PNT network that is resilient to GNSS errors as well as errors coming from other sky-based delivery channels such as Galileo, GLONASS, BeiDou, or another.  Details of this complete portfolio are described in the Virtual Primary Reference Time Clock (vPRTC) architecture which can be found here.

The BlueSkyTM GNSS Firewall protects already deployed GNSS systems by providing a cost-effective overlay solution installed between existing GNSS antennas and GNSS systems. Similar to a network firewall, the BlueSky GNSS Firewall protects systems inside the firewall from untrusted sky-based signals outside the firewall.

Defending against GNSS Threats needs to be part of a Cybersecurity Plan

Systems which rely on GNSS for reception of Position, Navigation and Time (PNT), have been determined by national security agencies across the globe as potential cybersecurity attack vectors. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently published the Resilient Positioning, Navigation, and Timing Conformance Framework document providing a common reference point to help critical infrastructure become more resilient to PNT disruptions.  Described in the DHS Resilient PNT Conformance Framework, a cybersecurity approach has been proposed:

Prevent: The first layer of defense. Ideally threats are prevented from entering a system, however, it must be assumed that it will not be possible to stop all threats.

Respond: Detect atypical errors or anomalies and then take action such as mitigation, containment and reporting. The system should ensure an adequate response to externally induced, atypical errors before recovery is needed.

Recover: Return to a proper working state and defined performance. It serves as the last line of defense.
 

Four Levels of Resilience

Based on the Prevent-Respond-Recover cybersecurity model, the PNT Conformance Framework document describes 4 levels of resilience. Note that the resilience levels build upon each other, that is, Level 2 includes all enumerated behaviors in Level 1, and so forth. Using the BlueSky GNSS Firewall either as a standalone security barrier or in combination with Microchip’s high-performance atomic clocks and timing distribution systems, all four levels of resilience can be achieved and exceeded.


The new BlueSky GNSS Firewall Software Release 3.0

Contained within the BlueSky GNSS Firewall is a software platform that analyzes GNSS signal reception.  GNSS signal data is received and evaluated from each satellite to ensure compliance along with analyzing received signal characteristics.  Release 3.0 further enhances the BlueSky GNSS Firewall's already field proven GNSS protection capabilities with new features such as Trusted Time Anomaly Detection, GPS Subframe Reference Detection, embedded GNSS observable tools combined with new TimePictra Performance Monitoring features to better secure, monitor, prevent, respond and recover to GNSS threats.  Critical Infrastructure providers now have the most advanced set of tools for defending against all intentional or unintentional vulnerabilities and threats and achieving Level 4 Resilience as defined by the DHS PNT Conformance Framework.

Integrates seamlessly between existing GNSS Antenna and GNSS system

Microchip’s BlueSky GNSS Firewall is deployed in-line between an existing GNSS antenna and GNSS receiver system and can be placed near the GNSS receiver system or near the point at which the GNSS antenna cable enters the building.  Thus, nearly all currently deployed GNSS antennas are supported without modifying the existing installation.

Optional Rubidium MAC (Miniature Atomic Clock) for enhanced threat detection and holdover

Upgrading the BlueSky GNSS Firewall with the MAC enhances anomalous GNSS detection capabilities while also extending holdover performance of the hardened GNSS signal output for multiple days.

1PPS and 10 MHz timing reference inputs for extended holdover

10 MHz or 1 PPS inputs allows for connection of autonomous references sources such as Microsemi's 5071A or TimeCesium products to extend the holdover performance in case of a complete loss of GNSS reception for long periods of time.

Upgradeable Software in addition to secure and easy-to-use web interface

At the core of the BlueSky GNSS Firewall is a programmable anomaly detector that validates the GNSS subframes for spoofing incidents based on defined data validation rules. A wide range of rules have already been built into the BlueSky GNSS Firewall to detect suspicious time and position inconsistencies. As with traditional security firewalls, new validation rules are made available with each new release of software for the BlueSky GNSS Firewall to defend against new threats that are identified.

Wide scale management using TimePictra platform

Management of wide scale deployment of 10's, 100's or 1000's of BlueSky GNSS Firewall units is simplified using Microsemi's TimePictra management system. TimePictra enables a regional, national, or a global view of your PNT infrastructure to provide early alerting of threats before your PNT network is violated.

BlueSky Performance Monitoring

Integrated within TimePictra, BlueSky Performance Monitoring enables visibility of GNSS reception parameters across a wide-scale deployment of BlueSky GNSS Firewalls.  GNSS signal measurements such as GNSS phase deviation, GNSS satellites in view, and GNSS signal strength can be plotted for selected time periods.  This aids critical infrastructure operations to more quickly identify and isolate GNSS incidents.
