Promess Intros Hand-Held Calibration Meter
Handheld calibration meter.
Brighton, MI — Promess, Inc. has added a new microprocessor-based, handheld meter for calibration, certification, and verification of both laboratory and production measuring equipment. The new PRO-CM16 includes a digital sensor interface for automatic detection of torque and force sensors, and a USB interface.

The PRO-CM16 is a battery- or USB-powered precision amplifier designed to work with the company's transducers and standard strain gauge load cells to calibrate and certify force and torque measuring systems. It has a sampling rate up to 1,600/s and an instrument accuracy stated at 0.01-percent. It can measure in tension or compression, and provides an overload warning in both the positive and negative directions.

The new instrument can store up to 16 different transducer calibration settings, and can be connected to an unlimited number of sensors with TEDS interface which provides plug-and-play sensor identification.

Once calibration tooling is in place, the instrument allows calibration of the company's MotionPRO systems. All calibration data for sensors with the digital interface TEDS are stored in a memory chip on the sensor and not in the display unit. The data are automatically uploaded to the PRO-CM16 when the sensor is plugged in, avoiding crucial user mistakes.

The PRO-CM16 has a robust enclosure, a graphic display, and menu buttons, all designed for ease of use on the shop floor. It can display minimum, maximum, and actual values in units the user can select from a list.
