F18 Thermometry Bridge Primary Standard. Resistance Thermometry Bridge.
The Model F18 Thermometry Bridge Primary Standard is designed specifically for resistance thermometry to provide you with the best possible accuracy.
The 25Hz or 75Hz operating frequency provides fast, continuous measurement with high immunity to thermal emfs and supply frequency noise sources.
Practical measurements involve cables, connectors and imperfect operating environments, the F18 Thermometry Bridge achieves its full specification under a wide range of real operating conditions.
Thermometry Resistance Bridge
|F18||Thermometry Bridge Primary Standard.|
The F18 Thermometry Bridge includes a wide range of features specifically tailored for temperature metrology.
These include programmable excitation current, root 2 current, analogue outputs, selectable source impedance, gain and filter bandwidth. Manual or automatic bridge balancing together with manual or automatic control (IEEE interface) of the instrument ensure that the F18 can provide solutions in a wide range of measurement applications.
The F18 Thermometry Resistance Bridge can be used with one or more switchboxes for multi channel calibration.
