Lighten up your toolbox Pocket sized calibrator replaces toolbox of single function devices Milliamp • Voltage • Frequency Thermocouples • RTDs • Check Continuity
Technician friendly operation Intuitive EZ-DIAL Double Click Menu makes it easier to setup than other multifunction calibrators. Uses the same menus as the single function PIECAL Evolution Calibrators.
Use it as a milliamp and voltage calibrator Source 0 to 24.00 mA, 0 to 10.25 V dc and -10.00 to 110.00 mV Read to 24.00 mA, ±60.00 V dc and and -10.00 to 110.00 mV Simulate 2-Wire Transmitters Power up transmitters & loops with the built-in 24 V power supply. Simplify HART hookups with built-in 250 Ohm resistor
Calibrate directly in temperature (°C & °F) The PIECAL 820 works with the instruments you use. Types J, K, T, E, R, S, B, N, G, C, D, L (J DIN), U (T DIN) and P (Platinel II) Pt 100 Ohm (3850, 3902, 3916, 3926) & 1000 Ohm (3850) Copper 10 & 50 Ohm, Nickel 100 and 120 Ohm
Checkout flow and vibration systems Source & read frequency to 2000 CPM (Counts-Per-Minute), 999.00 Hz, 9999.9 Hz, 9.9999 kHz & to 20.000 kHz
Troubleshoot loop & wiring problems ‘Beep’ out connections with the built-in continuity checker
Easy to read Turn on the backlight & easily see the display in dark areas of the plant
Quickly set any three outputs plus automatic stepping & ramping Easily set any value quickly with the adjustable “DIAL” plus store any three output settings for instantrecall with the EZ-CHECK™ switch. Choose between 2, 3, 5 & 11 steps to automatically increment the output in 100%, 50%, 25% or 10% of span. Select RAMP to smoothly increase and decrease the output between Zero and Span. Set step/ramp time to match your system from 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 60 seconds.
Measure temperature sensors, frequency pickups, loop currents and voltage levelsCheck the values of your process sensors. Instantly recall MAX and MIN values to see process variability
Advantages of the PIECAL 820 over the Altek 820
Automatic stepping & ramping Setup 2, 3, 5 & 11 steps or continuous ramp from 5 to 60 seconds to match your test procedures
Larger Display with Backlight Easy viewing in dark locations
More Resistant to Accidental Damage Rubber Boot and Stronger Switches
More Thermocouple &RTD ranges with 0.1° resolution and better accuracy Compatible with smart transmitters, multichannel recorders, PLCs and DCSs (the Altek 820 RTD output is not compatible with many smart transmitters and system input cards)
Smaller & 25% lighter Pocket sized and easier to carry
LED for optical pickups LED flashes green in synch with frequency output. Illuminates red for overload conditions.
Prices The Altek 820 costs $2,384.42 – You save $689 and get a better product, along with the promise of a 2 year quibble free warranty.

1. To check, adjust, or determine by comparison with a standard (the graduations of a quantitative measuring instrument): calibrate a thermometer.
a. To make corrections in; adjust: calibrated the polling procedures to ensure objectivity.
b. To adjust (a display setting) so that recorded images are accurately reproduced: calibrated the tint on the computer monitor.
3. To determine the caliber of (a tube).
Pressure calibration is the comparison of the output of a device used to measure pressure with that of another pressure measurement device, or pressure measurement standard. This usually involves plumbing the device under test (DUT) to the standard device and generating a common pressure in the measurement circuit.
