Fluke Calibration 1586A
Super-DAQ Precision Temperature Scanner with DAQ-STAQ Multiplexer
The Fluke Calibration 1586A1DS120 Super-DAQ Precision Temperature Scanner with DAQ-STAQ Multiplexer is the most accurate and flexible temperature data acquisition system on the market. It scans and records temperature, DC voltage, DC current, and resistance for up to 40 input channels and scan speeds as fast as 10 channels per second. The Super-DAQ can be configured for use as a multi-channel data logger in the factory or as a precision reference thermometer for benchtop sensor calibration in the lab.
The 1586A/1DS 120 collects time-stamped precision temperature and electrical measurements for data analysis by technicians, engineers, and quality control personnel to verify process control, analyze interactive systems, ensure conformance to quality standards, or to correlate related events for R&D or troubleshooting. Measurement data and statistics can be viewed in tabular format for all active channels. With the graphing feature, up to four channels can be plotted at the same time, making it easy to quickly assess test setup and results before analyzing the data on a PC.
When configured with the DAQ-STAQ Multiplexer, the Super-DAQ has the accuracy of the best benchtop reference thermometer readouts for calibration of PRTs, RTDs, thermistors, or thermocouples. Lab efficiency can be increased when the Super-DAQ is connected to a Fluke Calibration drywell or bath and Automated Sensor Test routines are run.
The 1586A/1DS 120 is ideal for a number of applications such as thermal mapping, temperature validation, process sensor calibration, and more. These applications are found in a various industries including pharmaceutical, biotechnology, food processing, aerospace, and automotive.
Some temperature data acquisition applications require compliance to government and standards agency requirements. TQSoft and TQAero thermal validation software help engineers, technicians and lab managers to meet the key guidelines for temperature data collection. These software solutions provide a complete qualification, reporting, documentation, and audit trail management system.
Flexible Configuration for the Factory or Benchtop
For a calibration lab where accuracy is of primary importance, the Super-DAQ is best configured with a DAQ-STAQ Multiplexer. The external DAQ-STAQ features mini-jack thermocouple terminals-each with its own reference junction sensor-and patented mini-DWF, gold-plated input terminals, which accept bare wire, spade lug, or mini-banana-plug terminations. Easily connect and disconnect PRTs, thermistors, and thermocouples for benchtop temperature calibration. It can be stacked on the 1586 to reduce footprint in busy labs. Flexibility to configure the Super-DAQ for factory or calibration lab use reduces your equipment needs and cost.
Multiple Modes of Operation
The 1586A/1DS 120 can operate in four modes that let you scan, monitor, measure, or function as a digital multimeter from a single instrument. Sequentially scan through channels based on a user defined test. Monitor any single channel during a scan, without interrupting the scan. Measure and record data on a single channel without the need of a pre-configured test file. Or in DMM mode, use the front panel channel like a familiar benchtop digital multimeter to quickly measure dc voltage, dc current, or 2-wire and 4-wire resistance without the need to configure the channel.
Real-time Graphing in Color
Most data acquisition systems only let you view data on one channel. But now the 1586A/1DS 120 lets you view real time data for all channels in table format, or you can chart up to four channels in color at the same time. You can zoom in or out to see data of interest and monitor trends. A history mode lets you scroll through collected data within a scan file-all without a PC and expensive charting programs. Switch between chart view and table view of various measurement data and statistics
Data Portability and Security
The 1586A/1DS 120 includes 20 MB internal memory that can store over 75,000 time-stamped readings. Data and set-up files can be easily moved to a PC for analysis using a USB flash drive or over a network using the LAN interface connection. This Super-DAQ also includes two levels of data security to prevent unauthorized users from tampering with or forging test data or setup files. This security feature is especially important to industries that are regulated by government agencies where data traceability is required.
Automated Sensor Calibration
With the Automated Test feature, you can automate sensor calibration without a PC and software. When connected to a Fluke Calibration drywell or fluid bath via the RS-232 interface, the Super-DAQ takes control of the temperature source and runs your calibration automatically. You simply program the number of setpoint temperatures and their values, select a scan sequence (linear, alternate, up/down), assign a reference channel, and set the required stability band. The 1586A/1DS 120 monitors the temperature source's stability via the reference channel, collects the data once stabilized, and then advances to the next setpoint temperature. After you configure and start the test, you can walk away to work on other things. The Super-DAQ just made your day a whole lot easier.
