Model 1040C and 1040CU Panel Meter Calibrator - 1

POWER CALIBRATORS AND METERS Panel Meter Calibrator The Arbiter Systems®, Inc. Model 1040C Panel Meter Calibrator (PMC) integrates eight calibration functions: voltage, current, frequency, power, power factor, phase, reactive power (VARs), and synchroscope into one compact, portable package. All of these functions in one lightweight yet rugged instrument, allow you to easily calibrate virtually every type of panel meter and many types of transducers, circuit breakers and overcurrent relays. A hand-held control is also provided, so you can operate the Model 1040C at a distance when calibrating panel meters in the control room or substation. The Model 1040C's precision ac/dc voltage and current sources may operate independently to calibrate voltmeters, ammeters and frequency meters, or together to calibrate watt meters, watthour meters, power factor meters, VAR meters, and phase meters. The Model 1040C is also an excellent source for calibrating high-accuracy transducers and revenue meters, when used with an external standard. The Model 931A Power System Analyzer is a good companion instrument for these tests, with basic accuracy of 0.05% and 0.05°, built-in transducer output measurement capability and timer. The Model 931A also performs a wide variety of other measurements. Together, these two instruments can calibrate and measure the vast majority of your work load requirements. The lower-priced Model 1040CU offers the same performance and features as the 1040C, but has binding post outputs instead of detachable output cables, and it has no hand-held control unit. There is also no storage compartment in the unit’s lid, and the maintenance manual is optional. For applications that do not require these features, the Model 1040CU offers significant savings. Extensive self-test, diagnostic and calibration features are standard on the Model 1040C. Upon power-up, the self-tests verify instrument performance; should a fault be detected, it is localized with the diagnostic functions. Calibration is performed either manually through the front panel, or automatically via the standard IEEE-488 interface. Built-in store-recall memory for voltage, current, power, frequency, and phase settings reduces test time in complex measurement sequences. With all these features and more, the Model 1040C is a real time saver. Put one to work for you today!

POWER CALIBRATORS AND METERS Model 1040C / 1040CU Specifications Output Signals Voltage Output Range Model 1040CU Operation Setup and operation of the Model 1040C for meter calibration is easy. The PMC output cables connect to the device under test, and the output values for current, voltage, frequency, power or phase are set either from the front panel or remotely via the IEEE-488 (GPIB) Interface Bus. Parameters selected from the front panel keyboard, or via GPIB, are displayed on a bright, easy-to-read vacuumfluorescent display. A settling indicator is provided to eliminate erroneous...
