Calibration, loop checking, plant startup, troubleshooting, maintenance, and repair are some of the varied duties that need a 1523/ 24 thermometer. Use it for a handy temperature reference and temperature logger in baths, dry-block calibrators, thermowells, clean rooms, engines, heat exchangers, furnaces, freezers, or anything else that must be calibrated, checked, or maintained.
Tolerances of RTDs, thermocouples, transmitters and temperature controllers improve over time. Calibrations determine which instruments to accept against their tolerances. If you make comparisons to an inaccurate reference standard, the risks of false accept and false reject increase. Test uncertainty ratios (TURs) that keep the reference four times more accurate than the test unit greatly reduce this risk. The 1523/ 24 lets you get better TURs on a wider range of workload.
The 1523/ 24 can also help boost cal lab productivity with fast sample rates and dual channel measurement. Accurately measure up to seven samples per second, or calibrate two sets of workload at the same time, with the two reference channels.
Test and measurement
Testing the performance of internal and external combustion engines, turbines, steam systems, cooling towers, heat exchangers, and refrigeration systems requires measuring differences between inlet and outlet temperatures. The 1524 can simultaneously measure, calculate and record these differences.
The high sampling rate and logging capability of the 1524 make it easy to determine the response time of temperature sensors. In addition, graphing in the 1523/ 24 makes it easy to see temperature trends in a system and quickly identify stability.
With a precision thermistor in stainless steel or Teflon coating, the 1523/ 24 combines laboratory accuracy with speed, reliability, and intuitive measurement. And forget about waiting 20 minutes for equilibration; you can see graphically when the temperature trend is stable.
Logging and validation
Whether you are testing a product, validating a process, troubleshooting or doing research, multi-channel logging with the 1524 can help you get the data you want, where, how and when you want it. Gather data independently of a computer. If space is a limitation, the compact size of the 1524 is ideal. In addition, you can choose your sample rate, monitor values in real time, directly transfer data to a computer, and record up to 15,000 time and date stamped measurements.
