5011 Precision RTD Calibrator

The 5011 is a versatile, high accuracy calibrator that can be used in a wide range of applications across various industries. Primarily used as a programmable resistance / RTD source, the 5011 provides precision resistance with a best accuracy of 0.01 % and 1 mΩ resolution (50 Ω to 1 kΩ). 

Internal options for increased capabilities can be fitted as per customer requirement. These include DC voltage and thermocouple simulation, DC current, and frequency. 

The 5011 can be used as a laboratory grade resistance and temperature calibrator, or incorporated into an automated test system for dedicated signal injections. A rack mount kit option is also available.

  • RTD and thermocouple simulation
  • DCV and DCI options
  • 10 MHz frequency option
  • RS-232 / GPIB / USB interfaces
  • Front panel operation
  • EasyCal Software compatible
5011 Operation

Simple Operation

Front panel operation allows the user to quickly set the function and output required. Using the jog / shuttle dial deviation the user can finely adjust the output value as a percentage (+/- 9.99%). All this information is shown on an easy to read LED display.  As standard the 5011 uses a SCPI command structure for programming. It also supports the Time Electronics 9811/19/20 command set making it an ideal replacement for these legacy models.

5011 Options

Flexible Options

A range of internally fitted options are available for the 5011, providing added functionality and features. The DCV / Thermocouple option provides a DC voltage source (+/- 20V) and simulates thermocouple types K, J, T, R, S, N, E and B. With the DC current option fitted the 5011 can source up to 220mA. This makes the instrument ideal for accurate process control calibration. Also available is a 0.1Hz to 10MHz frequency option (Period 100ns to 10s). The output is variable with a best resolution setting of 0.1Hz.

EasyCal Calibration Software

The 5011 can be controlled via Time Electronics EasyCal software to automate the calibration process. This provides increased speed of calibration and consistency of results. 

Produce traceable calibration certificates and test reports for quality standards with additional uncertainty information for ISO 17025 conformance.
