1017 Multifunction Calibrator

A high performance portable multifunction calibrator with voltage, current, and resistance ranges. The 1017 combines precision with simple operation, making it suitable for use in the workshop or field. Constructed in a compact and durable plastic case with a tilt stand/carry handle, the instrument takes up minimal bench space and is easily transportable.

Five DC voltage ranges from 10 mV to 100 V full scale are available, with 6-digit (1 ppm) resolution. The DC current range is 100 mA full scale with a 100 nA (1 ppm) resolution. Resistance from 0.01 Ω to 10 kΩ is available 0.01 Ω steps.

Stability and Temperature Coefficient
Long-term stability is achieved by the use of high quality components and modern resistor technology. The 1017 features a precision reference diode that provides the input to the units active circuitry. The special low-thermal emf terminals reduce errors when working with microvolt signals.

1017 Deviation Control

Digital Deviation Control

Allows the output to be increased/decreased in % terms from 0 to ± 0.999 %. This provides a direct read-out of error and simplifies the recording results for calibration certificates. 

It enables the user to immediately see if the unit under test is within specification.

Safety Terminals

Portable Operation

The 1017 can be powered from mains supply or by the internal rechargeable battery pack. Battery operation enables good performance where earth loop and noise pick-up occurs. 

When the calibrator is plugged into the mains supply the internal batteries will automatically start to recharge. If unplugged from the mains during operation the internal batteries will continue to power the instrument. Full charge allows 12 hours typical use. An LED indicator on the front panel displays the battery condition.

1017 Applications

The 1017 is suitable for calibration and simulation work on a wide range of instrumentation and test equipment. These include thermocouples, transducers, 4 to 20 mA and 0 to 10 V transmitters, and platinum resistance thermometers.

It is commonly used in manufacturing, process control and R&D as a highly stable calibration source for various applications. It can also be used for testing functions on multimeters and electrical test tools with measurement capabilities.
