Portable high-precision sensor measurement tool from BursterNow available in the UK from Ixthus Instrumentation, Burster’s new TRANS CAL 7281 is a high-precision hand-held portable test and calibration tool for sensor components used on equipment such as hydraulic presses, torque tools, high-precision measuring devices and pressure-regulating systems on assembly lines. The battery or mains-powered instrument supports strain gauge/normalised signal +/- 5V, +/- 10V, and potentiometric sensors; and includes a strain gauge simulator up to 50mV/V.

Combined with a reference sensor the device provides a high-precision reference measurement chain for force or torque etc. The compact instrument can also be used for routine testing to measure and record isolation resistances and input/output resistances, and as a fault-finding tool for service engineers. An optional factory calibration certificate and/or German accredited DAkkS calibration certificate is available when the measurement device needs to be used as a reference.

The TRANS CAL 7281 can store up to 16 programs and has a data-logging capacity of 30,000 measurements which can be shared and transferred to a PC with Burster’s DigiCal configuration and data-acquisition software for display and reporting functions, which also includes test certificates compilation. Furthermore, Burster’s TEDS software can be used for automatically load measuring chain values.

A dedicated version for reference measuring chain of compression load from 20N to 100kN with DKD/DAkkS calibration certificate is also available. The 72-REF-EN version uses the full featured 7281 for the calibration of press-fit force measuring equipment and is typically used with Burster’s high-precision 8527 series sensor, and is supplied all connection cabling and DigiCAL PC software.
