Automatic calibration alert added to crystal digital pressure gauge
Crystal Engineering, a unit of AMETEK Sensors, Test & Calibration has added an automatic calibration reminder system to its XP2i pressure gauge.
The new system is said to reduce the possibility of using gauges after their calibration dates and potentially incurring regulatory fines.
Manual record-keeping and notifications are replaced by customisable on-screen alerts prior to the due date, warning alerts on and after the due date, and an optional capability to lock the gauge from use after its calibration due date. Dates, reminders and message types are set by supervisors through free software.
Because they measure critical performance metrics of a wide range of equipment, properly calibrated pressure gauges can be important factors in worker safety, pollution control and/or product quality.
The rugged, intrinsically safe XP2i gauge offers high-accuracy pressure recording, even in harsh. Key features include an IP-67 rated, marine-grade enclosure, a fast pressure safety valve (PSV) mode, custom engineering units, and a leak-free pressure fitting connection.
