COMPASS® for Pressure Enhanced
This most advanced level of COMPASS® provides the greatest value to most users. It supports complex tests, including custom user macros within the test sequence and multiple outputs from a single UUT. It includes automated support of third party transfer standards and can communicate with almost any device having an RS-232, IEEE-488 or TCP/IP interface.

COMPASS® for Pressure Enhanced includes features for advanced users and applications. These features allow more complex test sequences, which may include operating valves and other auxiliary equipment before/after tests or between points. These capabilities can be used, for example, to switch pressure references during a test, include a shunt calibration, or take a zero absolute pressure point from a vacuum gauge with a vacuum pump connected directly to the UUT.

COMPASS® for Pressure Enhanced supports environmental chamber control and/or a line pressure setting device. Test definitions can specify that a pressure sequence be repeated at multiple temperatures and/or line pressures.

COMPASS for Pressure Enhanced includes device macros using Visual Basic® Script to create commands for instruments that do not use simple ASCII character command strings and that may require multi-step communications.

COMPASS® for Pressure Basic
This version was developed for performing basic calibration and testing on UUTs, even those that may have complex outputs. The reference may be any Fluke Calibration pressure standard (PPC/RPM or PG7000) or any manufacturer’s piston gauge/deadweight tester. COMPASS® for Pressure Basic includes features such as security options and networked operation.

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.

Regenerative, bidirectional “Green” Power Solution

The RS Series features the ability to both source and sink current, i.e. bi-directional current flow. The RS amplifier is designed to reverse the phase relationship between the AC input



Programming sink (-SNK) mode operation.

 

Avionics
With an output frequency range to 819 Hz (or 905 Hz with -HF option), the RS Series is well suited for aerospace applications. Precise frequency control and accurate load regulation are key requirements in these applications. The available IEEE-488 remote control interface and SCPI command language provide for easy integration into existing ATE systems. The RS Series eliminates the need for several additional pieces of test equipment, saving cost and space. Instrument drivers for popular programming environments such as National Instruments LabView™ are available to speed up system integration.

Regulatory Testing
As governments are moving to enforce product quality standards, regulatory compliance testing is becoming a requirement for a growing number of manufacturers. The RS Series is designed to meet AC source requirements for use in compliance testing such as IEC 61000, 3-2, 3-3, 3-11, 3-12, to name a few.

Choice of voltage ranges
The RS Series includeds 150V and 300V line to neutral. These models provide 3 phase output capability of 260 Vac or 520 Vac line to line respectively. 
For applications requiring more than 300 V L-N (or 520 V L-L), the optional -HV output transformer provides an additional 400 V L-N and 693 V L-L output range for use in AC mode only.

High Crest Factor
With a crest factor of up to 3.6, the RS Series AC source can drive difficult nonlinear loads with ease. Since many modern products use switching power supplies, they have a tendency to pull high repetitive peak currents. The RS90 can deliver up to 720 Amps of repetitive peak current (150 V AC range) per phase to handle high crest factor three phase loads.

Remote Control
Standard RS232C & USB IEEE-488 along with optional LAN remote control interfaces allow programming of all instrument functions from an external computer. The popular SCPI command protocol is used for programming. 

Application Software
Windows® application software is included. This software provides easy access to the power source's capabilities without the need to develop any custom code. The following functions are available through this GUI program:
• Steady state output control (all parameters)
• Create, run, save, reload and print transient programs
• Generate and save harmonic waveforms. 
• Generate and save arbitrary waveforms. 
• Measure and log standard measurements
• Capture and display output voltage and current waveforms. 
• Measure, display, print and log harmonic voltage and current measurements.
• Display IEEE-488, RS232C, USB and LAN bus traffic to and from the AC Source to help you develop your own test programs.
1. Requires PC running WindowsXP™ or Windows 2000™ / 2007.

Harmonic Waveform Generation 
Using the latest DSP technology, the RS Series programmable controller is capable of generating harmonic waveforms to test for harmonics susceptibility. The Windows Graphical User Interface program can be used to define harmonic waveforms by specifying amplitude and phase for up to 50 harmonics. The waveform data points are generated and downloaded by the GUI to the AC source through the remote interface. Up to 200 waveforms can be stored in nonvolatile memory and given a user defined name for easy recall.

All RS Series configurations offer three phase waveform generation, allowing independent phase anomalies to be programmed. It also allows simulation of unbalanced harmonic line conditions.

Arbitrary Waveform Generation
Using the provided GUI program or custom software, the user also has the ability to define arbitrary AC waveforms. The arbitrary waveform method of data entry provides an alternative method of specifying AC anomalies by providing specific waveform data points. The GUI program provides a catalog of custom waveforms and also allows real-world waveforms captured on a digital oscilloscope to be downloaded to one of the many AC source's waveform memories. Arbitrary waveform capability is a flexible way of simulating the effect of real-world AC power line conditions on a unit under test in both engineering and production environments.

RS Series - AC and DC Transient Generation
The RS Series controller has a powerful AC and DC transient generation system that allows complex sequences of voltage, frequency and waveshapes to be generated. This further enhances the RS's capability to simulate AC line conditions or DC disturbances. When combined with the multiphase arbitrary waveform capabilities, the AC and DC output possibilities are truly exceptional. Transient generation is controlled independently yet time synchronized on all three phases. Accurate phase angle control and synchronized transient list execution provide unparalleled accuracy in positioning AC output events.

Transient programming is easily accomplished from the front panel where clearly laid out menu's guide the user through the transient definition process.

RS Series - Measurement and Analysis
The RS Series is much more than a programmable AC, DC or AC+DC power source. It also incorporates an advanced digital signal processor based data acquisition system that continuously monitors all AC source and load parameters. This data acquisition system forms the basis for all measurement and analysis functions. These functions are accessible from the front panel and the remote control interface for the RS Series.

Conventional Measurements [All controllers]
Common AC and DC measurement parameters are automatically provided by the data acquisition system. These values are displayed in numeric form on the front panel LCD display. The following measurements are available: Frequency, Vrms, Irms, Ipk, Crest Factor, Real Power (Watts), Apparent Power (VA) and Power Factor.

Harmonic Analysis
The RS Series provides detailed amplitude and phase information on up to 50 harmonics of the fundamental voltage and current (up to 16 kHz). Harmonic content can be displayed in both tabular and graphical formats on the front panel LCD for immediate feedback to the operator. Alternatively, the included GUI program can be used to display, print and save harmonic measurement data. Total harmonic distortion of both voltage and current is calculated from the harmonic data.

Waveform Acquisition
The measurement system is based on real-time digitization of the voltage and current waveforms using a 4K deep sample buffer. This time domain information provides detailed information on both voltage and current waveshapes. Waveform acquisitions can be triggered at a specific phase angle or from a transient program to allow precise positioning of the captured waveform with respect to the AC source output. The front panel LCD displays captured waveforms with cursor readouts. The included GUI program also allows acquired waveform data to be displayed, printed, and saved to disk.

GFS dynamic gravimetric mass flow system

sku Product SKU:  FCL-GFS

The GFS dynamic gravimetric mass flow calibration system consists of an electronic mass balance, enclosure, and electronic instruments required to make accurate real-time measurements of depleted
gas mass in flow control systems, and the time duration over which it has run. In order to improve thermal stability and dampen vibrations, the balance is placed upon a large granite plate and surrounded by a draft enclosure. In this system the test gas is supplied by a pressurized cylinder which rests on the balance and whose mass is measured continuously to determine the quantity and rate of depleted mass during a test. The elapsed time over which this takes place is measured by a high-speed USB counter/timer connected to the system controller. Various non-corrosive gas species can be used with this system, simply by evacuating the reference cylinder and pressurizing with the media of choice.

A dedicated PC-based software program (GFSTools™) has been developed to act as the central control of the instrument and interface to the user. Discrete and averaged values of balance and device under test output are recorded and the results are calculated and displayed in terms of total mass and mass flow. Compensation of measurements for ambient pressure, temperature, and humidity, and balance drift are all performed by GFSTools. Automated test setup, data reporting and flow control are also handled by the program.

GFS™ delivers a true Primary Mass Flow Standard and makes the fundamental measurement of low gas mass flow rates in flow control systems practical. GFS primary mass flow measurements offer very low uncertainty values for independent metrology support of precision transfer standards like molbloc-L and molbloc-S, used for gas flow controller and other gas flow controlling device calibrations.

Fluke 6270A Pressure Controller / Calibrator

sku Product SKU:  FCL-6270A

CALIBRATE A WIDE WORKLOAD—QUICKLY, ACCURATELY, DEPENDABLY

The 6270A features pressure ranges from low differential pressure to 20 MPa (3000 psi), which covers the requirements of most gauges and sensors. Two levels of accuracy, 0.02 % FS or 0.01 % reading, let you balance your need for accuracy with the limits of your budget.

Thanks to its modular design, the 6270A is flexible enough that you can install modules with different accuracy classes within the same chassis. You can buy the highest level of accuracy for the pressure ranges that require it and a lower, more economical level of accuracy where applicable.

The 6270A’s accuracy specifications are provided in full and supported by a Technical Note that details its measurement uncertainty, so you know exactly what you are getting. As with all Fluke Calibration instruments, these specifications are conservative, complete, and dependable.

CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY AND PERFORMANCE

The PM600 Pressure Measurement Modules use the Fluke Calibration Quartz Reference Pressure Transducer (Q-RPT) technology to provide 0.01 % reading measurement uncertainty from 30 % to 100 % of the modules span. The modules are available in 14 different ranges including modules that are inherently absolute mode and gauge mode. The absolute mode modules include an onboard barometer. The barometer provides dynamic compensation of changes in atmospheric pressure, allowing for the modules usage in both absolute and gauge mode. The wide percent of reading capability combined with its ability to measure both gauge and absolute gives the PM600 Pressure Measurement Module the ability to cover an extremely wide workload.

The PM200 Pressure Measurement Modules use a highly characterized silicon pressure sensor to provide an economical method of making accurate pressure measurements. The 0.02 % FS specification includes the short term performance of the module (linearity, hysteresis, and repeatability) as well as its long term stability and the uncertainty of the calibration standard. Users can be confident in the PM200 measurement performance.

WIDE RANGEABILITY ASSURES WIDE WORKLOAD COVERAGE

The standard pressure control module can handle a wide range of pressures. A flexible range control module is also available if you need to handle an even wider range.

The 6270A features pulsewidth- modulated control, a proven technology that enables it to deliver wide rangeability, the ratio of the maximum to the minimum specified measured value at which the instrument performs correctly. A wide rangeability is what enables you to calibrate a wide workload.

SAFETY FEATURES PROTECT OPERATORS AND INSTRUMENTS

Each measurement and control module, as well as the main chassis, has pressure relief valves to protect the instrument and its operators from accidental overpressure. The 6270A has been designed using Sound Engineering Practices (SEP). With the internal relief valves, user-setable pressure limits, and emergency abort button, safety is the highest priority.

CONTAMINATION PROTECTION

If your workload includes devices that contain different substances like water, oil, and gas, you could be at risk for contamination—something getting into your system that isn’t supposed to be there. Contamination can clog a calibrator’s valves, wear out its parts, and make it difficult to maintain pressure. If the contamination gets into the sensor, it can actually change the calibrator’s behavior and throw off your readings. If contamination is a concern for you, order the optional 6270A Contamination Prevention System to help keep the calibrator’s valves clean and free from debris.

MODULAR CONFIGURATION GIVES YOU ALMOST UNLIMITED FLEXIBILITY

Install up to five pressure modules in a single 6270A chassis, mixing and matching module types and ranges to get the combination that best suits your needs. Buy just what you need to calibrate the pressure ranges in your current workload. Add modules later as your workload grows and changes.

Modules snap in and out quickly and easily; just slide each one into a specially-designed track and tighten the knob until you hear it click into place. The click tells you that the module is safely in place; a special “anti-torque” guard on the knob prevents over-tightening. You never have to wonder if you tightened it too much or not enough.

Modules are installed and uninstalled through the front of the chassis. You can easily install and remove both the measurement modules and the control module from the chassis, even if the 6270A is installed in a rack mount.

Each module uses an enhanced face-seal design that has been leak tested to pressures that are three times higher than the maximum working pressure. You don’t have to worry about a leak in the system affecting your ability to measure and control pressure.

CREATE AN AUTOMATED PISTON GAUGE SYSTEM

The 6270A is a flexible workhorse on its own, but you can also use it as the first step in creating an automated piston gauge system. Use the 6270A with a Fluke Calibration PG7601 or PG7202 Piston Gauge to automate the flotation of the piston. Add a PG7000-AMH Automated Mass Handler for PG7000 Piston Gauges to complete the automated system.

SO EASY TO MAINTAIN, YOU CAN DO IT IN HOUSE

We designed the 6270A to be easy to maintain, making your cost of ownership very reasonable. We publish a Service and Calibration Manual with detailed instructions on how to replace valves and components. An onboard screen capture routine can be used for troubleshooting help.

Control and measurement modules are separate, allowing for quick and easy repair. Just pull out the module and replace it; no auto-tuning required. You can change the pressure ranges just as easily by installing a new module and possibly changing the supply pressure. No need to send the 6270A back to the factory.

The modules can be calibrated either in the chassis or outside the chassis using the optional PMM Calibration Kit. Once calibrated, you can use them in any 6270A chassis without impacting the uncertainty of your measurements. Modules can be removed and replaced, easily; no specialized tools required.

Every component in the system is designed for simple, modular replacement, from the front panel to the rear pressure connections.

Internal components, like the main CPU, are designed to be easily replaced. The pressure connectors on the back of the 6270A are made from anodized aluminum, a robust material that stands up well to normal usage. However, if threads are stripped or there is galling from metal connectors sliding against it, you can easily remove the block without having to open the chassis. Simply remove the screws holding it in place and pull it out. The block does not have any items attached to it, so replacement simple and low cost.

The removable rear manifold makes it easy to remove the 6270A from a rack-mounted system. Simply vent the test and supply ports and disconnect the connection manifold from the back of the chassis. You won’t need to question which pressure line is the supply port and which one is the test port; they stay connected to the manifold, and the manifold can only be connected one way. Three types of manifolds—NPT, BSP, and 7/16- 20—are available to meet the needs of different geographic regions. The isolation valves on the main manifolds are easily removed from the top of the 6270A chassis.

AUTOMATE WITH COMPASS SOFTWARE FOR IMPROVED CONSISTENCY AND THROUGHPUT

Fluke Calibration COMPASS for Pressure software is designed specifically for pressure calibration. It enables you to automate the 6270A and run complete pressure calibration sequences on single or multiple devices under test (DUTs). COMPASS software removes the unknowns often associated with getting automated systems online.

The 6270A also features a full remote interface that enables you to use it with custom software or other data acquisition equipment. Details about the interface are provided in the 6270A User Manual.

Calibration Bath Fluids

sku Product SKU:  FCL-Calibration Bath Fluids

Fluke Calibration carries a full line of bath fluids covering temperature ranges from –100°C to 550°C.

Finally, there’s a convenient source for small quantities of bath fluids for any temperature range. Why pay for more than you need?

Viscosity, volatility and other properties that change with temperature affect the performance of fluids in controlled baths and circulators. Fluke Calibration has tested and used each of the fluids we sell. Over the ranges recommended in the following table, each fluid remains at a low enough viscosity to be adequately pumped or stirred. Whether your application is industrial or critical lab calibration work, Hart fluids give you top performance and stability.

For temperature ranges too high for oils, we have a bath salt with a viscosity in the molten state similar to the viscosity of water. For your convenience, it is shipped in a granular form, making it easy to fill your bath.

Between its melting point of 150°C and 550°C, this salt has the highest temperature stability and uniformity available in a bath fluid. It does not smoke like oils or give off dust like “sand" or fluidized alumina baths. Check with your bath manufacturer before using this salt to make sure your equipment is compatible. Fluke Calibration offers three standard bath models and custom-designed units for use with this salt.

Fluid specifications 
It’s important to understand a few specifications before selecting a bath fluid. We’ve seen bath fluids advertised with a temperature range that spans from the freezing point to the flash point or beyond.

For example, type 710 silicone oil has a freezing point of –22°C, but freezing point has nothing to do with the point at which the oil becomes so thick it cannot be properly stirred. Type 710 oil should really only be used down to about 80°C. It’s a viscosity issue, not a freezing-point issue. Usable range is the question. Suitability for calibration work is the specification that counts.

The usable viscosity range is determined by your bath’s stirring or pumping design. Fluke Calibration baths can be operated using fluids with up to 50 centistokes viscosity. This gives you additional usable range in the lower temperature levels of the fluid.

Some baths advertised as calibration baths require fluids with 10 centistokes or less viscosity to operate properly. The usable ranges in our table on the previous page assume the use of a Fluke bath.

In addition to range and viscosity issues, there are a number of other issues to consider when choosing a bath fluid. The other considerations are:

  • Thermal characteristics
  • Lifetime
  • Change in characteristics due to temperature cycling
  • Absorption of water from the air
  • Vaporization—fumes and fume hood requirements
  • Expansion due to heat
  • Contamination—mixing oils or introducing contamination with unclean probes
  • Conductivity properties
  • Effects of using fluids outside of their range—fire, explosion, polymerization
  • Effects of altitude on boiling point
