Ideal for 6.5-digit resolution DMMs, Fluke Calibration’s 5560A is complemented bythe new 5550A (5.5-digit) performance multi-product calibrator and the 5540A (4.5-digit) multi-product calibrator, enabling laboratories to increase accuracy while reducing costs and increasing bench space.
Eindhoven, Netherlands. 12 January 2023: Fluke, a global technology leader in the manufacture of compact, professional electronic test and measurement tools and software, has today introduced the Fluke 5560A High-Performance Multi-Product Calibrator, which provides the broadest electrical workload coverage and highest accuracy.
Satisfying demand at the high-end of the multi-product calibrator market, the 5560A sits neatly in Fluke’s product range under the high-accuracy, multi-function 5730A calibrator designed for calibrating 8.5-digit resolution DMMs. The 5560A is an ideal solution forcalibrating up to6.5-digitDMMs.
New class of multi-product calibrator
With demand for calibration growing every year, the Fluke 5560A defines a new class of multi-product calibrator by catering for new and inexperienced workers joining the calibration business without muchtraining. Key features of the Fluke 5560A include a large7-inch display with intuitivetouchscreen for ease of use, Visual Connection Management™ terminals and an optional accessory for efficientdigital multimeter (DMM) calibration with minimal or no lead changes. The rugged and portable calibrator can also be automated using MET/CAL™Calibration ManagementSoftware.
Among the key benefits to users of the 5560A are minimal training requirements andreduced maintenance as well as the ability to calibrate a wider range of equipment using a single calibrator. These all contribute to significant reductions in cost of ownership for calibration laboratories. The 5560A is also protected against expensive damage caused byincoming voltages or overload conditions.
In its quest to offer calibration laboratories the next generation of advanced tools, Fluke Calibration has also launched the 5550A Performance Multi-Product Calibrator which enhances the highly popular multi-product 5522A to provide a better match for a customer’s existing DMM workloads.The 5550Agreatly improves the accuracy delivered by the 5522A 5.5-digit DMMs as well as offering greater functionality. Featuring an intuitive graphical interface, the 5550A can calibrate the most popular handheld DMMs with increased test uncertainty ratios (TURs) and clamp meters to 1500A with continuous current output (30A).
Flexible calibration on-site andin the field
The 5540A Multi-Product Calibrator is another new addition to enhance Fluke Calibration’s improved range. It extends the capabilities of the 5502A with better performance levels, making it an ideal solution for on-site or mobile calibrationof the most demanding field instrumentation workloads.The 5540A is perfect for calibrating handheld 4.5-digit resolution DMMswith increasedTURsand clamp meters to 1500A with continuous current output. Improvements in comparison to the 5502A include an increase from 20A to 30A of continuous current output and cutting waiting times during heavy usage. A wider range of thermocouple types and a new easy-connect thermocouple connector widens the temperature workload coverage of the calibrator. The 5540A can be fully calibrated with a Fluke 8588A 8.5-digit Reference Multimeter plus one shunt for the highest current range.
Wim Sibon, Fluke Calibration Technical Sales Manager for ElectricalCalibration in Europesaid:“In recent years, we have experienced increasing demand from laboratories for greater accuracy in their calibrators while also wanting multi-product solutions that free up bench space and keep costs down.The 5560A calibrator provides exactly what the market requires and will deliver a significant boost to the productivity of calibration laboratories around the world. This will enable our customers to cope with thedemand for more accurate measurements but with a less experienced workforce.
“Fluke Calibrationis committed to providing calibration laboratories with the widest workload calibration capabilities and our latest additions to the range will enable lab technicians to expand their existing workloads with confidence. The 5502A and 5522A have been the workhorses of calibration laboratories for many years and we are delighted to take their capabilities to a whole new level with the 5540A multi-product and 5550A performance multi-product calibrators. Backed by more than 50 years of continuous engineering improvements, our comprehensive range of powerful tools are the result oflifelong dedication from some of the best calibration experts in the world. At FlukeCalibration, we are passionate about measurement science.”
