CALYS 50 is a basic multifunction calibrator within CALYS range. It is the perfect tool for advanced process maintenance and use on test bench in all industries. Suitable for all field and lab measurements, it can simultaneously measure and generate over two isolated channels various signals of temperature, resistance, process and frequency in one single instrument.

It provides extended functionalities (temperature simulation, scaling, steps, synthesizer, statistical functions…), easily accessible through quick menus by function.

The instrument simultaneously measures and simulates:

  • Temperature: Up to 0,014% RDG
  • Resistance: Up to 0,012% RDG, 4 KΩ range
  • Current: Up to 0,0175% RDG, 50 mA range + 24 V loop supply
  • Voltage: Up to 0,013% RDG, 50 V IN / 20 V OUT range
  • Frequency: Up to 0,005% RDG, 20 KHz range (10 KHz in simulation)

IP 54, fully protected by an antichoc rubber holster, CALYS 50 integrates "easyconnect" terminals and a wide backlite display that makes it easy to use in any severe or dark conditions.

Easy connection system

CALYS-EasyconnectConnect your probes by simply pushing on the terminal top and insert wires of up to 3 mm or 10 AWG diameter and compensated thermocouple connectors.

Wires are held tight between two brass plates ensuring thermal stability and a very good cold junction compensation for thermocouples.

This system also enables 4 mm banana plugs and security connectors to be connected on the terminal top.

Further features

Scaling in measurement and simulation modesScaling allows process signals to be displayed in % of FS or in all other units. This function also allows sensors to be corrected after a calibration.
Relative measurementThe features allows the following :

  • Programming a reference value different from the one of the instrument (NUL function).
  • Subtracting of constant value by measuring or programming it from a measured value (TARE function).
Simulation menuSimulation value is set by entering value on keypad or by changing the specific digit with the cursor.
Square rootIn current measurement and simulation, this function allows taking into account a quadratic signal coming from transmitter of type ΔP.
Statistical functionsContinuous display of average, minimum and maximum value of the signal under monitoring, as well as number of measurements.
Ramps generationStarting, ending and length time values of simple or cyclic ramps can be set to do simulation.
Number of ramps can also be adjusted in case of cyclic ramps for any signals.
Steps simulation2 modes are available:

  • Program mode: Starting value, number of steps and the length time have to be set
  • Manual mode: User has about a hundred preset values

In current simulation, user will have some additional preset values in function of range and according to 0%, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% from selected gauge. Choice is done between gauges:
0-20 mA: linear or quadratic
4-20 mA: linear or quadratic

SynthesizerWith 100 values manually set, CALYS 50 enables users to draw a generation curve.
Transmitter functionCALYS 50 is able to be used as a transmitter. Measurement input is copied on the output with scaling.
