CALYS 80 IS is an ATEX documenting multifunction calibrator within CALYS IS range. It is the perfect tool for advanced process maintenance and use on test bench in hazardous and non-hazardous areas. Suitable for all field and lab measurements, it can simultaneously measure and generate over two isolated channels various signals of temperature, resistance, process, pressure and frequency in one single instrument.

Providing extended functionalities (temperature simulation, scaling, steps, synthesizer, statistical functions…) and audit trails, CALYS IS series complies with both 21 CFR Part 11 and NADCAP Heat Treatment standards and makes advanced data exploitation and full data traceability easier. CALYS IS can store and recall up to 10 complete instrument configurations and values with manual or automatic recall for easy and quick work in the field.

The dual channel display allows a simultaneous indication of the measured and the simulated values. The graphic mode allows the trend to be displayed.

Pressure calibration:

Single or dual range internal pressure modules can be configured in CALYS 80 IS and 120 IS to provide gauge, absolute and differential pressure measurements. External interchangeable pressure module can be connected to any model in order to extend the pressure range up to 700 bar.

Using this user-friendly instrument, calibration tasks can be quickly carried out over the whole process chain. Take the 1.4 kg documenting process calibrator to the field with you during the whole week with 10 calibration procedures stored in the device. Run the procedure after connecting the probes to the instrument and save the results for onsite easy and quick calibration. Back to the office, you can then upload the data on a computer in order to issue customized calibration certificates with dedicated calibration software DATACAL.

Further features

Scaling in measurement and simulation modesSetup of zero and span programmable within -399999 and +999999
Scaling 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.
Square rootIn combination with scaling function
Statistical functionshold, max, min, offset, zero, average
Transmitters testsThe feature enables any pressure or temperature transmitter to be controlled and calibrated with simultaneous display of input and output values in % F.S. or in actual unit.
The measuring circuit is also able to power the loop for a direct connection to the transmitter under test.
Ramps generationAutoramp and Autostep capability with Start, End, and Step programmable parameters
Single and continuous cycle with Start, End, Rises, Soaks, and Falls programmable parameters
The signal value setting uses a unique in-line single-digit setting mode or a direct numeric entry
Direct keypad access to n.10 programmable memory stored values
Transmitter functionCALYS IS can be used as a transmitter. Any input signal (electric or pressure) can be converted into a 4-20 mA output.
The galvanic insulation between the input and output channels allows this function o be used on the prcess directly.
Switch testTemperature, signal and pressure switches can be tested using this advanced procedure. The calibrator will hold the display reading when the contact changes status.
