PIE 525Plus Diagnostic Thermocouple, RTD & Loop Calibrator

The ONLY 3-in-1 thermocouple, RTD, and FULL FUNCTION milliamp calibrator on the market!

The new Model 525Plus from Practical Instrument Electronics is the only calibrator that combines ALL the functions of a diagnostic milliamp calibrator with the accuracy of a laboratory thermocouple and RTD calibrator.

Calibrate all your Thermocouple, RTD instruments AND your milliamp loops with the PIE 525Plus. It has all the functions of a 12 type RTD calibrator, 14 type thermocouple calibrator and can source 0 to 24 milliamps or simulate a two wire transmitter like a milliamp calibrator. You can also carry out stand alone calibrations of two wire transmitters, by simultaneously supplying the RTD or thermocouple input signal while supplying the 24 volts to power up the transmitter and monitoring the milliamp output signal.

The PIE 525Plus allows you to quickly diagnose ground fault and current leakage with the patented loop diagnostic technology (US Patent# 7,248,058).

Stop carrying around a decade box and RTD resistance tables. The PIE 525Plus works with the RTDs you use including Platinum 10, 50, 100, 200, 500 & 1000 Ohm (alpha = 3850), Platinum 100 Ohm (alpha = 3902, 3916, 3926), Copper 10 & 50 Ohm, and Nickel 120 Ohm. Or calibrate from 0.000 to 400.000 and 0.00 to 4000.00 Ohms. For RTDs the fixed or pulsed sensor current is measured by the calibrator. Use thermocouples too?  Choose from  J, K, T, E, R, S, B, N, G, C, D, L (J DIN), U (T DIN) or P (Platinel).  Or calibrate from 13.000 to 80.000 mV.

Trouble shoot sensor connections and find broken wires with patented technology. Connect your two, three or four wire RTDs and the PIE 525Plus automatically detects the connections and measures the RTD in degrees C or F. Secondary display shows the resistance value corresponding to the RTD temperature. No competitor’s calibrator is compatible with as many process instruments; also displays excitation current to confirm your RTD transmitter is working properly.

The internal cold junction thermistor is accurate to ±0.05°C and is traceable to NIST. The sensor is thermally bonded to an isothermal mass including brass blocks with screw terminals for connection of bare thermocouple wires along with a miniature thermocouple connector for fast connections. An extremely stable voltage reference and low drift components make it more accurate than most other handheld & benchtop thermocouple calibrators. The PIE 525Plus is capable of meeting the requirements of an AMS 2750 Field Test Instrument when certified by an accredited laboratory.

Troubleshoot thermocouple probes by measuring the resistance of the cables and sensing element, allowing you to replace high resistance probes before they burn out.  Open thermocouples and ones with impending failure are indicated by  “OPEN TC” and the resistance value on the 525Plus display.

With the built-in milliamp calibrator you can check, calibrate and measure all your current signal instruments in a 4 to 20 milliamp loop. It can be used at any access point in your loop. Source & Read 0.000 to 24.000 mA, Simulate a 2 Wire Transmitter or use the PIE 525Plus to simultaneously power your 2 Wire Transmitter and measure its output while simulating the sensor input.

Choose between 2, 3, 5, 11 and 21 steps to automatically increment the output in 100%, 50%, 25%, 10% or 5% of span. Select the step time to match your system from 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 60 seconds.
