Multi-function handheld pressure calibrators feature swipe screen technology

GE Measurement & Control introduces the new DPI 611 handheld pressure calibrators from the GE Druck family of products.

Building on the proven performance of the DPI 610, long acknowledged as the industrial workhorse of pressure test and calibration, the new DPI 611 handheld pressure calibrators feature a rugged design and innovative swipe screen technology for ease of use. Twice as efficient at generating pressure at half the size of its predecessor, the DPI 611 handheld pressure calibrator also delivers twice the pressure accuracy and three times better electrical accuracy.

The latest addition to GE’s integrated calibration and communication solutions platform, DPI 611 handheld pressure calibrators are designed for use throughout the process, oil and gas, power generation and general engineering sectors.

The first dedicated pressure calibrator to feature swipe screen touch technology, the DPI 611 incorporates an intuitive screen interface displaying a comprehensive application dashboard, and a task menu enabling simple, three-touch set-up for any pressure test or calibration. A ‘Favourites’ function enables quick access to frequently used tasks and custom configurations, which are easily stored. Results are displayed on the large screen and can be documented in the 8GB user memory.

Some of the advantages of the DPI 611 handheld pressure calibrators include ability to automate processes to significantly reduce calibration times by running pre-defined procedures, calculating errors and reporting PASS/FAIL errors; and seamless integration with leading calibration and maintenance software including 4Sight from GE, to help maintain compliance with industry standards and regulations and improve process and operational efficiency.

While retaining the comprehensive electrical measurement and sourcing capabilities of the DPI 610, the DPI 611 includes a 10VDC regulated supply and 24V loop power and is three times more accurate. Significant improvements can be seen in pressure generation wherein the device’s mechanical pressure-generating system has been totally redesigned to create 95 percent vacuum or generate maximum pressure of 20bar/300psi in just 30 seconds, while holding the instrument in one hand or on a tabletop.

Describing the DPI 611 as the new workhorse of instrument calibration, Mike Shelton, product manager at GE comments that the pressure calibrator is rugged, waterproof, light, compact and easy to use, offering reliable, fast and powerful performance in the most arduous of working conditions.
