Multifunction Calibrator CA71 (Portable)

The CA71 Portable Calibrator is a small, lightweight, multifunction calibrator by Yokogawa that can simultaneously source and measure voltage, current, resistance, TC, RTD, frequency, and pulse signals with high accuracy. The Handy Calibrator incorporates rotary switches for simple handling. Just open the carrying case cover and connect the cables, and you're ready to take measurements.

Product Overview

Easy Operation The Handy Calibrator incorporates rotary switches for simple handling. Just open the carrying case cover and connect the cables, and you're ready to take measurements.
A Wide Array of Useful Functions
  • Source
    Values set in steps of 4-20 mA 24V DC Power Supply to Transmitter
  • Divided output (n/m) function
    Output settings are divided, eliminating the need for bothersome calculations for percentage output.
  • Autostep function
    Changes the output value in step form based on the setting from the divided output (n/m) function. Changes can be sourced automatically every 10% or 25%.
  • Online communication (CA71 only) RS-232C-compliant optically isolated interface
  • Sweep function
    Linearly increases or decrease the output. The increasing/decreasing time can be set to either 16 or 32 seconds.
  • Memory function
    Source values and measurements forming individual value sets can be saved to or read from the Handy Calibrator's internal memory (maximum 50 value sets).
  • Temperature monitor function

The communication function of CA71 Communication Software enables users to set output values of the CA71 on a PC. However, the range for generation/measurement should be selected using the rotary switch on the calibrator.

The following operations can be executed while monitoring the CA71 on the PC.

Data Receiving Memory-mode data or real-time data can be received
from the CA71.
Data Transmission Setting value of generation can be set and sent to the CA71.
Data Processing The data can be saved and forwarded to EXCEL.
A trend graph is created and shown on the PC screen.
