North Branford, Conn. Prime Technology, LLC has introduced the RTD-500 series of programmable temperature simulators that is designed specifically for performing highly accurate calibration of temperature controllers.
The RTD-500 provides a temperature simulation range from -200° to 850°C. Temperature stability is better than 1 ppm/°C and the unit is capable of 2-, 3- and 4-wire sensor simulation. The resistance range for the unit is 16 ohms to 10,000 ohms. The accuracy of resistance at 16-400 ohms is 0.003% (+/-3 milliohms); from 400-2,000 ohms the accuracy is 0.005%, and from 2,000-10,000 ohms, 0.015%. The simulator operates within a temperature range of 5°C to 40°C and a voltage of 100 to 240 Vac/50-60 Hz.
The unit also features a simple keypad operation for selection of temperature or resistance and a backlit LCD display for easy viewing. The RTD-500 is programmable via a RS232 computer interface. Weighing less than 9 pounds and enclosed in a metal housing make the simulator portable and rugged.
