5018 Precision Voltage and Current Calibrator

The 5018 is a versatile programmable calibrator capable of covering a wide range of testing applications. It can be configured as a single function DC voltage source or advanced AC/DC voltage and current calibrator controlled via PC or laptop, performing any number of tasks as part of a complex ATE test rig.

It is suitable for automated signal injection in R&D and manufacturing applications where a stable and accurate source is required. The compact form factor means it takes up minimal bench space in the lab, or an optional 19" rack mount kit is available for integration into a modular test equipment setup.

GPIB, RS-232 and USB interfaces allow the 5018 to be connected to a PC and controlled by an external program such as EasyCal calibration software. The 5018 uses a SCPI command structure for programming. This makes writing control programs in Visual Basic, C and Labview a simple task.

5018 calibrator deviation control

Simple Operation

Simple 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 (+/- 99.99%). All this information is shown on a clear, easy to read LED display

5018 Ramping Function


The 5018 includes an internal ramping feature. A ramp rate per range for each function can be set via a PC. The option to ramp the output can be turned on or off via the front panel. This is particularly useful in aviation and automotive industries for testing analogue gauges.

EasyCal Calibration Software

The 5018 can be controlled via Time Electronics EasyCal software to automate testing procedures. With EasyCal, users can control a wide range of programmable instruments so automated test rigs can be configured to control a variety of applications. 

It has full read back capability and therefore can perform closed loop testing. Conditional tests can be configured to allow decision making to further enhance the usefulness.
