Fluke Calibration introduces the 1586A Super-DAQ Precision Temperature Scanner. With up to 40 analog input channels and scan rates as fast as 10 channels per second, the device is suitable for applications such as thermal mapping, process sensor calibration, quality control testing, lifecycle testing, process monitoring and environmental testing that are common in various industries including pharmaceutical, biotechnology, food processing, aerospace and automotive. With both internal and external input modules, the scanner is designed for use both on the factory floor where channel count and scan speeds are important and in the calibration laboratory where accuracy and quick input connections are required. It can measure thermocouples, platinum resistance thermometers, thermistors, dc current, dc voltage and resistance and features four modes of operation (scan, monitor, measure, and digital multimeter) as well as alarms that indicate when a channel measurement exceeds an assigned high or low limit. The device has 20 MB of on-board memory for storing data and configuration files, a USB port to collect and store files directly to a USB drive, and a LAN interface for easy connection to PCs and networks. It also includes a dedicated RS-232 interface to control drywells or temperature baths for automated tests.
