PRESS RELEASE : Fluke offers procedures-with-purchase promotion

  • Multi-function meter with reference-standard accuracy and stability for a wide range of cal lab applications
  • Simple MET/CAL Plus procedures reduce integration time, enhance efficiency & permit greater productivity

    EVERETT, WA - Fluke Corporation, the world's leading supplier of test and measurement equipment, is offering the new Fluke 8508A Reference Multimeter, an 8.5-digit resolution instrument designed specifically for metrologists, with a MET/CAL® procedures CD/ROM that supports four metrology applications - at no additional charge.

    The Fluke 8508A is designed to serve as a versatile precision measurement tool for calibration laboratories that must meet increasingly stringent measurement uncertainty analysis requirements as well as the need for increased productivity. Extremely precise measurements are typically performed using the 8508A manual front panel controls. With the additional procedures, the 8508A combined with MET/CAL software allows the metrologist to now perform a multitude of fully automated measurements. The procedures support the following applications:

    • Calibrating a Fluke 5500A Multi Product Calibrator
    • Calibrating resistance temperature probes
    • Comparing voltage references
    • Calibrating the 5700A or 5720A resistance function.
    The procedures allow a user to automate the Fluke 8508A with industry-leading MET/CAL Plus calibration software which improves throughput and allows precise measurements to be performed repeatably. Procedures and test results are fully documented within MET/CAL, improving compliance to international quality standards.

    The performance of the Fluke 8508A with MET/CAL software offers metrology labs complete confidence and certainty with one-year accuracy as precise as 3 ppm and 20-minute transfer uncertainty of 0.12 ppm. Its clear control structure and context-sensitive menus provide a transparent, logical, and intuitive user interface that requires minimal training, even for metrologists who are new to the profession.

    The Fluke 8508A/01 Reference Multimeter with four free procedures worth over $4000 is now available at a US list price of $12,495.
