Manual temperature sensor calibration is expensive and time consuming. It takes roughly four hours to calibrate a sensor at three points, then another hour on top of that for paperwork to document the temperature data and to create the certificate. Now there’s a better way.
With MET/TEMP II software, simply place your test sensors in a heat source, connect them to a readout, enter your setup information, and start the test. Sometime later, print out the reports, sign them, and ship the sensors back to your customer. Your customers will love the fast turnaround.
It’s your choice. Spend four hours the old way and handle everything involved in temperature sensor calibration manually, or fifteen minutes with MET/TEMP II software.
This software package tests thermocouples (all types), RTDs, SPRTs, thermistors, and even liquid-in-glass thermometers (LIGs). Virtually any sensor with a resistance or voltage output can be tested, up to 100 sensors at a time. They don’t even have to be the same type. You can select as few as 1 or as many as 40 temperatures at which to test your sensors. Nobody makes more ultra-stable heat sources and thermometer readouts for temperature calibration work than Fluke Calibration. MET/TEMP II can use nearly every one of them. You don’t need to worry about special software drivers for each different piece of equipment. Just plug and play.
Use MET/TEMP II for temperature sensor calibration with these instruments:
MET/TEMP II can also interface with the 1620A “DewK” Thermo-Hygrometer to record ambient temperature and humidity conditions during the test process.
Besides performing comparison calibrations, MET/TEMP II also lets you perform semi-automated fixed-point calibrations. The software allows you to program soak times in the cell before taking readings. You may even mix fixed points with comparison points in the same calibration. Of course, we also include fixed-point information on the new report layout.
MET/TEMP II tracks the model and serial numbers, calibration and due dates of all test equipment and sensors under test. Optionally, this data may be synchronized with information in your MET/TRACK database. MET/TEMP II also stores customer names and addresses for printing on reports.
With MET/TEMP II, you make your own choices regarding precision and throughput. When setting up tests, you specify the required stability level at each set-point to ensure that readings are taken only under the conditions you require. You’ll get the exact level of precision you want based on the equipment you have and the calibration time you set
MET/TEMP II can optionally interface with MET/TRACK software to record calibration and maintenance history, traceability information, and even the location of your thermometer readouts and heat sources. Use it with MET/TRACK and watch your productivity take a big step up.
Calibration reports are automatically created from your setup data and test results. Each report conforms completely to the requirements of ANSI/NCSL Z540-1. It’s fast, it’s accurate, and it’s complete. MET/TEMP II even allows you to print your company’s logo on the report.
The MET/TEMP II Coefficients and Tables application is included and contains utilities for data analysis. It can calculate coefficients and residuals for each sensor tested. Tables can be generated with temperature versus- resistance, temperature-versus-ratio, or temperature-versus-EMF data. Each table can be generated in °C, °F, or K and in increments from 0.01 to 100.
For PRTs, MET/TEMP II can calculate coefficients for ITS-90, IPTS-68, Callendar-Van Dusen, and polynomial functions. For thermistors, it can calculate coefficients for polynomial functions, including Steinhart-Hart. Thermocouple coefficients can be calculated for types B, E, J, K, N, R, S, T, and AuPt. This software even allows you to verify that the appropriate temperatures are used to calculate coefficients.
Need subranges in ITS-90? No problem. Want to print tables for any temperature range and in any incremental amounts? No problem. Need to generate formatted reports that conform to ANSI/NCSL Z540-1 with your own logo? No problem.
Data can also be exported to spreadsheets or other statistical analysis software as comma-delimited or tab delimited text. MET/TEMP II does all of that and more, but best of all it does it automatically.
Control dry-wells, baths, readouts, and the entire calibration process. Store data on test equipment and on sensors under test.
MET/TEMP II uses a single RS-232 (COM) port. Hardware is included to connect up to six interfaced instruments to the PC. Additional null-modem cables are required to connect instruments to the hardware (not included). Don’t have an RS-232 (COM) port on your computer? No problem. Using a USB to RS-232 converter, you can add a virtual COM port to any computer.
In order to interface MET/TEMP II with the MET/TRACK database, you must have MET/TRACK v7.01 or later and you must purchase and apply a MET/TEMP II license to the MET/TRACK database (sold separately).
** MET/TEMP II software is not compatible with 64-bit operating systems. Additionally, you may experience some issues when running MET/TEMP II on 32-bit versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems.**
