3000A Series
Precision Multiproduct Calibrator


Introduction


The 3000A Series multi-product calibrators have been designed to help you and your business, allowing a wide range of calibration work to be performed quickly, accurately and economically. Modern calibration is a competitive market, and cost effective equipment and software are key considerations. 

The 3000A Series calibrators offer the widest workload coverage of any calibration system presently available. The unique concept of external calibration adapters, combined with built-in measurement capability, dramatically extends the range of instruments that can be cost-effectively calibrated.

Consisting of 3 models ranging from 8ppm to 50ppm, the 3000A Series Multi-Product Calibrator provides a solution for your laboratory workload requirements.

3000 Series FAQ

Transmille oscilloscope calibration options have amplitude ranges up to 300V to offer calibration of a wider range of oscilloscopes than our competitors.

Examples of oscilloscopes that require verification at these ranges are the Tektronix THS700A series and the Hanascope 801.

Transmille's EA001/EA001A has been designed to minimise typical errors associated with calibration of thermocouple meters that are ignored by other designs.

By making the thermocouple option external, the low voltage output (in the order of 0mV to 100mV, with accuracies in the microvolt level required for accurate simulation) is away from any heat generating components in the calibrator therefore reducing any localised thermal EMF effects.

The inclusion of a Thermocouple plug removes the need to find compensation cables of the correct type, which is a considerable source of error. If the wrong type of compensation cable (for example, when simulating a K type thermocouple, a J type compensating cable) is used there will be a significant error introduced through use of the wrong cable.

Finally, a temperature measurement is conducted at the connection with the UUT, in the thermocouple plug itself. This is measuring the cold junction as close to the internal measurement of the UUT as possible, removing localised differences in temperature.

For further information on the design of our thermocouple option, please view our YouTube video HERE.

Transmille products have been designed to most accurately represent the requirements of modern commercial laboratories and the typical equipment that is found inside.

Almost all modern computers are fitted with a USB interface, so to enable direct connection without the requirement for additional adapters a USB connection is provided.

IEEE 488/GPIB interfaces are typically quite expensive, and are another lead/connection to remember when performing on-site calibration work. 

GPIB interface options are available on our multiproduct calibrators, and are included as standard on the 8000 series multimeters.

The 30A output on Transmille multiproduct calibrators is included to ensure not only calibration of clamp meters up to 1500A, but also for calibration of low value high current shunts that would otherwise require a dedicated power supply which is an additional instrument that requires calibration.

The 30A function is limited by a thermal cut-out, that when the units internal temperature reaches a predetermined limit the output will be turned off.

The length of time that the 30A output is active for depends mainly upon the load that is connected, a higher resistance of load will mean that more power is dissipated within the load, reducing the self-heating of the high current section of the calibrator.

The worst-case scenario is that of a short across the output terminals, where all of the heat is being dissipated inside the heatsink of the calibrator. In the case of a coil that provides a considerable load (especially at AC, where the resistive and inductive effects of the coil take effect) the 30A can be present for much longer as the heat is being dissipated inside the coil.

We believe that safety is a prime consideration of a laboratory, second only to performance of our products.

Imagine a situation where a laboratory technician has finished calibration for the day, and has disconnected the instrument under test, but left the voltage source on at a setting of 1000V AC.

Later that evening, a cleaner comes into your laboratory or facility and touches the test leads left on the bench, potentially receiving a very nasty shock. Transmille have added this safety feature to avoid situations of this type from happening.

There are, however, cases where the timeout wishes to be extended, or even disabled. This can be performed through the Calibrator Setup program via your computer, or can be disabled prior to shipping on request.
