Meri-Cal II
Model 3600 & 3610 Pressure Calibrator
Model 3600 Meri-Cal II is a microprocessor based pressure calibrator with 5 digit resolution and NIST traceability. Two pressure sensors and one electrical sensor installed in the Meri-Cal II will allow measurement of differential and static pressure, plus current and voltage in one unit. Any two of these measurements are displayed on a 4 line by 20 character alphanumeric display, making calibration of transmitters and transducers easy. The Model 3610 Meri-Cal II incorporates a convenient Data Logging mode and on-board memory to provide calibration documentation at the stroke of a key. Calibration procedures can be set up quickly using the Windows ‘95 Data Logging Program. Up to 20 PC Calibration files of up to 20 points each can be downloaded from a PC. This allows the 3610 to prompt the user with required calibration points. Another 20 Manual Calibrations files can be stored directly through the keypad.
