New high-performance multi-product calibrator

August 2023 Analytical Instrumentation & Environmental Monitoring

The Fluke 5560A high-performance multi-product calibrator provides the broadest electrical workload coverage and highest accuracy. Satisfying demand at the high end of the multi-product calibrator market, the 5560A sits neatly in Fluke’s product range under the high accuracy, multi-function 5730A calibrator designed for calibrating 8,5-digit resolution DMMs. The 5560A is an ideal solution for calibrating up to 6,5-digit DMMs.

A new class of multi-product calibrator

With demand for calibration growing yearly, the Fluke 5560A defines a new class of multi-product calibrator by catering for new and inexperienced workers joining the calibration business without much training. Key features of the Fluke 5560A include a large 18 cm display with an intuitive touchscreen for ease of use, Visual Connection Management terminals, and an optional accessory for efficient digital multimeter (DMM) calibration, with minimal or no lead changes. The rugged and portable calibrator can also be automated using MET/CAL Calibration Management Software.

Among the key benefits to users of the 5560A are minimal training requirements, reduced maintenance, and the ability to calibrate a broader range of equipment using a single calibrator. These all contribute to significant reductions in the cost of ownership for calibration laboratories. The 5560A is also protected against expensive damage caused by incoming voltages or overload conditions.

In its quest to offer calibration laboratories the next generation of advanced tools, Fluke Calibration has also launched the 5550A Performance Multi-Product Calibrator, which enhances the highly popular multi-product 5522A to provide a better match for a customer’s existing DMM workloads. The 5550A dramatically improves the accuracy delivered by the 5522A 5.5-digit DMMs, and offers greater functionality. Featuring an intuitive graphical interface, the 5550A can calibrate the most popular handheld DMMs with increased test uncertainty ratios (TURs) and clamp meters to 1500 A with continuous current output (30 A).

Flexible calibration on-site and in the field

The 5540A Multi-Product Calibrator is another new addition to enhance Fluke Calibration’s improved range. It extends the capabilities of the 5502A, with better performance levels, making it an ideal solution for on-site or mobile calibration of the most demanding field instrumentation workloads. The 5540A is perfect for calibrating handheld 4,5-digit resolution DMMs with increased TURs and clamp meters to 1500 A with continuous current output. Improvements in comparison to the 5502A include an increase from 20 A to 30 A of continuous current output and cutting waiting times during heavy usage. A more comprehensive range of thermocouple types and a new easy-connect thermocouple connector widens the temperature workload coverage of the calibrator. The 5540A can be fully calibrated with a Fluke 8588A 8.5-digit Reference Multimeter plus one shunt for the highest current range.

“Fluke Calibration is committed to providing calibration laboratories with the widest workload calibration capabilities, and our latest additions to the range will enable lab technicians to expand their existing workloads with confidence. The 5502A and 5522A have been the workhorses of calibration laboratories for many years, and we are delighted to take their capabilities to a whole new level with the 5540A multi-product and 5550A performance multi-product calibrators. Backed by more than 50 years of continuous engineering improvements, our comprehensive range of powerful tools are the result of lifelong dedication from some of the best calibration experts in the world. At Fluke Calibration, we are passionate about measurement science.”
