At home in the cal lab
The 525B is a compact bench instrument well suited for traditional calibration laboratories with a large temperature workload. Its 0-100V output and 0-100 mA current capabilities – plus its ability to serve as a highly-accurate pressure standard – make it a versatile performer.
Filling the gap in the instrument shop
In process plant environments, instrument shop technicians responsible for maintaining the equipment pool need to calibrate and repair a wide range of instruments, transmitters, field calibrators, P/I converters, transducers, and temperature probes. With its ability to simulate almost any temperature sensor, precise pressure monitoring capability, and dc voltage and current accuracy rivaling any calibrator in its price range, the 525B fills the gap between lower accuracy handheld field calibrators and more expensive high-end multifunction calibrators.
A good fit for ATE test applications
With precise calibration-grade instrument control enabled via an IEEE bus, the 525B is a hard working addition to automated test systems in quality and manufacturing test applications requiring capabilities such as voltage and current sourcing, sensor simulation, and temperature monitoring and validation.
Powerful functionality that is easy to use
From start to finish, the 525B is designed for ease of operation. The intuitive front panel design features large keypads and display that help reduce training time and make the 525B comfortable to use even for long periods of time. Plus, you can store frequently used constants for a variety of probes in memory for faster setup on the job
MET/CAL® Plus automates 525B calibration and documentation management
You can use the 525B with MET/CAL Plus Calibration Software (v 6.11 or later) to meet the stringent documentation and reporting requirements imposed by quality standards such as ISO 9000. MET/CAL Plus is a powerful software environment for creating, editing, testing, and documenting calibration procedures, and for performing automated calibrations
An optional set of external pressure modules provides pressure measurement capability. The 525B can accept either the Fluke Calibration 700 Series pressure modules or the Fluke Calibration Model 525A-P series pressure modules. These modules plug directly into the calibrator’s front panel Lemo connector; the 525B firmware auto-detects the type and value of the attached module
