Fluke 1586A-120/C Offers

Collects time-stamped precision temperature and electrical measurements for data analysis by technicians, engineers, and quality control personnel to verify process control, analyze interactive systems, ensure conformance to quality standards, or to correlate related events for R&D or troubleshooting. Measurement data and statistics can be viewed in tabular format for all active channels. With the graphing feature, up to four channels can be plotted at the same time, making it easy to quickly assess test setup and results before analyzing the data on a PC.

Flexible configuration for the factory or bench-top

To simplify applications such as temperature uniformity testing, the Align Channels feature allows you to automatically "zero" offsets between sensors relative to a designated reference channel. An Mx + B offset is stored for each channel and an indicator let's you know that an offset has been applied. Includes 20 math channels and 15 different mathematical operations that can be applied to measured results. Combining calculated results of multiple math channels lets you compute complex operations such as F0 calculations.

For a calibration lab where accuracy is of primary importance, the scanner is best configured with a DAQ-STAQ Multiplexer. The external DAQ-STAQ features mini-jack thermocouple terminals - each with its own reference junction sensor - and patented mini-DWF, gold-plated input terminals, which accept bare wire, spade lug, or mini-banana plug probe terminations. Easily connect and disconnect PRTs, thermistors, and thermocouples for bench-top temperature calibration. It can be stacked on the scanner to reduce footprint in busy labs. Having the flexibility to configure the scanner for factory or lab use reduces your equipment needs.

Multiple modes of operation

The scanner can operate in four modes that let you scan, monitor, measure, or function as a digital multimeter from a single instrument.

Sequentially scan through channels based on a user defined test. Depending on your application, select a fast, medium, or slow scan rate. With scan speeds as fast as 10 channels per second, you can collect data on all 40 channels in less than four seconds. Easily capture time-stamped measurements and correlate related events. Scans can be initiated through six different trigger types to include: external trigger, time interval, remote SCPI command, alarm trigger, manual trigger, and an automated test trigger.

Monitor any single channel during a scan, without interrupting the scan. Measure and record data on a single channel without pre-configuring a test file. In DMM mode, use the front panel channel like a familiar bench-top digital multimeter to quickly measure dc voltage, dc current, or 2-wire and 4-wire resistance. Function keys are backlit so that you always know the mode of operation and recording status.

Real-time graphing in color

This scanner lets you view real-time data for all channels in table format or chart up to four channels in color at the same time. You can quickly see the current process state at-a-glance, or easily verify that your channels have been connected and configured properly.

You can zoom in or out to see data of interest and monitor trends. A history mode lets you scroll through collected data within a scan file - all without a PC and expensive software. Switch between chart view and table view to see measurement data and statistics, including average, standard deviation, minimum, maximum, peak-to-peak, and rate of change.

Not only does it include a rich graphical display, but you can also select between nine different languages including English, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, or Russian.

Each channel can be assigned two independent alarms which indicate when either an upper (HI) or lower (LO) range has been exceeded. If an alarm trips, the out-of-range condition is indicated on the display. Alarms can also be assigned to any of the six TTL outputs for control of external devices.

Data portability and security

Includes 20 MB of internal memory that can store over 75,000 time-stamped readings. Data and setup files can be easily moved to a PC for analysis using a USB flash drive or over a network using the LAN interface connection. It also includes two levels of data security to prevent unauthorized users from tampering with or forging test data or setup files. This security feature is especially important to industries that are regulated by government agencies where data traceability is required.

Automated sensor calibration

With the Automated Test feature, you can automate sensor calibration without a PC and software. When connected to a Fluke Calibration dry well or fluid bath via the RS-232 interface, the scanner takes control of the temperature source and runs your calibration automatically. You simply program the number of set-point temperatures and their values, select a scan sequence (linear, alternate, up/down), assign a reference channel, and set the required stability band.

Monitors the temperature source's stability via the reference channel, collects the data once stabilized, and then advances to the next set-point temperature. After you configure and start the test, you can walk away to work on other things.
