Fluke 5080A instrument calibrator.

International quality standards and regulations including safety, nuclear and environmental (among others) require a variety of electronic test tools that must be calibrated to nationally recognized standards. Fluke Corp., a manufacturer of electronic test and measurement technology with Canadian headquarters in Mississauga, Ont., has come up with a tool that calibrates both analogue and digital test instruments.

The Fluke 5080A’s built-in protection circuitry guards against potentially damaging input AC/DC voltages, handling up to 800 mA with a maximum compliance voltage up to 50 V.

Use it for the calibration of analogue meters, panel meters, digital multimeters, watt meters and, with optional accessories, clamp meters, megohmmeters, oscilloscopes to 200 MHz and other instruments.

Optional 5080/CAL Software provides automated calibration as well as reporting and record management capabilities.
