PRESS RELEASE : Fluke introduces the 750 Series Documenting Process Calibrators

EVERETT, Wash. – Fluke Corporation, the global leader in portable electronic test and measurement technology, introduces the 750 Series Documenting Process Calibrators. Process professionals have long relied on the 743/744 Documenting Process Calibrators for advanced instrument calibration, especially in rugged environments. Operating the new 750 Series is similar enough to the 743/744 that existing users will be able to immediately start using the 750 Series – no training required to get substantially increased performance from the new models.

These field tools calibrate temperature, pressure, voltage, current, resistance, and frequency and have three operating modes — measure, source, or simultaneous measure/source — enabling technicians to troubleshoot, calibrate or maintain instrumentation with just one tool.

The 750 Series features an easy-to-follow, menu-driven display that guides users through tasks. Programmable calibration routines enable technicians to create and run automated as-found/as-left procedures to ensure fast, consistent calibrations. The recorded results can then be easily downloaded to a PC via the USB port, eliminating the need for manual transcription.

Improvements over the original model include a graphical display that is now bright enough to allow readings to be seen in any light condition. The multi-lingual interface displays instructions in English, French, German, Spanish or Italian. Another popular improvement is the new, rechargeable Li-ion battery pack, which provides enough power for an entire shift and can be charged from within the calibrator.

Brand-new and included with every 750 series calibrator is the C799 soft case. This unique case features a clear window to shield the calibrator from the elements while still allowing the operator full access to the calibrator’s controls and keyboard. The case design includes an input-output slot for test leads, open side pockets to connect a pressure module, and ample storage for a pressure module, hand pumps, test leads and interconnect cables.

Integrated HART communication capability
The 754 model is the first field calibrator for HART instruments that is both powerful and easy to use. The 754 offers fast HART communication and requires no external box or secondary tool to perform everyday HART calibration and maintenance. The 754 is easy to update as additional instruments are added and new HART versions are released, and is backed by the service and support of Fluke, a member of the HART Communications Foundation.

Support for popular instrumentation management software
The 750 Series works with the new Fluke DPC/TRACK™ 2 software for managing calibration records and data. It features an instrumentation database that makes it easy to manage instrumentation, create and schedule tests, load and unload the calibrator, print a variety of standard reports, and manage calibration data. The 750 Series also works with calibration management solutions from Honeywell Meridium, Emerson, Cornerstone, Yokogawa, Prime Technologies, Intergraph, and others.

The Fluke 750 series comes standard with three sets of stackable test leads, three sets of TP220 test probes with three sets of “extended tooth” alligator clips, two sets AC280 hook clips, C799 Field Soft Case, Li-ion battery pack, battery charger, USB communication cable, getting started guide, instruction manual on CD-ROM, NIST traceable certificate of calibration, DPC/TRACK 2 software sample, and a three-year warranty. Model Fluke-754 includes HART communication cable.

Pricing and Availability
The U.S. list price for the Fluke 753 model is $4,995; the 754 model is $6,295.
