At long last the wait is over. The new generation of the popular Fluke handheld Documenting Process Calibrators (DPCs) is ready and waiting to get to work. If you used previous Fluke DPCs, you’ll find that the Fluke 753 Documenting Process Calibrator and the Fluke 754 Documenting Process Calibrator-HART® have retained many of the familiar features that made the original 74x series so beloved. But you’ll also find a wide assortment of new safety, accuracy, and usability improvements, many of which resulted from feedback from customers.
Before we started designing the Fluke 753 and 754 we went into the field and talked to frequent users of the previous 74x DPC models. We talked to technicians, engineers, and others who are responsible for maintaining and troubleshooting critical systems. Those customers came from all over the world and from virtually every industry that uses process instrumentation, including petrochemical, pharmaceutical, power generation, mining, waste water management, and steel operations.
We heard you
We learned a lot from those conversations. We learned that you don’t want to have to search around for features. You can’t afford to train everyone on a new system. You need test leads that stay connected. You don’t want your team to have to manually write down and transcribe results. You need a screen that presents a clear display regardless of the lighting or the angle from which you view it. You also need protection from an occasional accidental connection to the wrong signal. From those who calibrate multiple different HART Smart devices every day we heard that you don’t want to have to wrangle multiple connections.
We took that feedback to heart and translated it into the new Fluke 750 series DPC design. The results include all of the best of the previous DPC models plus several updates that make them easier to read, safer to use, and more accurate - so you can work faster and smarter.
Before we get into the specifics of the changes, perhaps we should describe the basics of what the 753 and 754 DPCs offer. These handheld multi-function tools calibrate temperature, pressure, voltage, current, resistance, and frequency all in a handheld unit. They measure and source, so users can troubleshoot and calibrate with the same tool.
Keeping the best and then improving
Those of you who have used the Fluke 743 and 744 DPCs will be happy to know that the new 750 series DPC functionality follows the same logic as those earlier models, so you won’t need to retrain your staff. If this is your first experience with a Fluke DPC don’t worry; the easy-to-follow, menu-driven display takes you step-by-step through any task so you can get up to speed in minutes. What’s more, there are 20 videos to show you everything from unpacking the box and charging the battery to end-to-end calibration of a HART smart pressure transmitter.
You can use these DPCs to source and measure almost any parameter in process instrumentation. The most common uses include testing:
The Fluke 753 and 754 DPCs have kept virtually all of the favorite features from the popular 74x series DPCs, only now they’re easier to find, to see, and to use. Check out the specifics:
Fluke 754 connects to HART instrumentation.
For even more convenience every 750 series DPC comes with a Fluke - C799 Field Soft Case that allows you to operate the calibrator inside the case, and carries all accessories - from hand pumps, and pressure modules, to test leads, power supplies, and hand tools.
