Cropico RS3 Laboratory D.C. Resistance Standards

16 Standard Values Available

• Available in a Wide Range of 0.0001W to 1 MW
• Excellent Load Coefficient
• Special Values Made to Order
• 4 Terminal Construction
• Can be used in Air or Oil Bath
• Each Standard Supplied Complete with Calibration Certificate

Detailed Description
The most desirable feature in which any resistance standard should excel is permanence of calibration. This has been achieved by the experience gained over many decades in the manufacture of precision resistors; the careful selection of resistance material, a rugged strain-free construction and a carefully controlled heat treatment and ageing process. To obtain the optimum performance from these standards, we recommend regular annual certification. A resistance standard which has been carefully used within the limits of the manufacturer's specification increases in usefulness with time, as its complete history is recorded, enabling the user to determine its value at any time.

The RS3 range of resistance standards are constructed using carefully selected low temperature coefficient Manganin or Zeranin wire, depending on value, mounted on formers which have a high mechanical stability. The wires are wound in a strain-free manner and heat treated to remove any stresses. They also are artificially aged under the strictest control. The result is a standard of high-quality with long-term stability and permanence of calibration combined with a low temperature coefficient.

We offer the widest range of standard values available today. In addition we are able to manufacture for specialist applications (e.g Pt100 simulation) special values to customer requirements. The RS3 range also offers a high-current carrying capability which makes them ideal for applications where precise current needs to be measured.

Model 414 - Annealling Furnace

30C to 1000C (1832F)

Ideal for Annealing and Conditioning SPRTs
Remove Strain and Hardening from your Platinum Coils

• Maintenance Free Use
• Available with programmable controller with communications
• Temperature Range: Ambient to 1000C
• Control: 0.1C Resolution
• Communications included as standard
• Supply: 110VAC, 3kw, 50/60Hz CTE (230VAC and 110VAC to 110VAC Isolating Transformers are available)

Detailed Description
The Annealing Furnace, model 414, is designed to heat, anneal and cool SPRT's (Standard Platinum Resistance Thermometers) prior to calibration. The temperature range of the Furnace - from ambient to 1000C enables all types of SPRT's to be annealed.

One of the duties of a calibration laboratory manager is to ensure that the SPRT's used in the Laboratory are fully annealed and still within specification.

Just using the thermometers within the laboratory will cause work-hardening to take place within the platinum coil of the SPRT.

Therefore regular annealing is required to ensure the SPRT's are in an ideal condition.

In 1990 the new temperature scale ITS-90 specified the use of SPRT's up to the Silver point (961.78C). At these temperatures quartz is very porous and in reducing atmospheres the SPRT's can quickly become contaminated.

The Isotech Annealing Furnace offers a safe solution for those who wish to anneal SPRT's up to 1000C.

To prevent contamination at high temperatures a constant flux of pre-heated air passes the SPRT's being annealed.

A comprehensive handbook accompanies the Furnace.

This Furnace is installed simply and requires no maintenance.

Model 670 - S.P.R.T

-200C to 670C (1238F)

Our Best Standard Platinum Resistance Thermometer

• Resistance Value (C): 25.5WRo
• Resistance Ratio: WGA>1.11807 as required by ITS-90
• Sensitivity: 0.1W/C
• Long term drift from 0.001C/year
• Calibration (UKAS): Water T.P., Tin F.P., Zinc F.P., Aluminum F.P. with print-out of temperature at W-intervals of 0.01

Detailed Description
This is the first new thermometer, after the introduction of ITS-90, to be specifically designed to give optimum performance up to the aluminum point. Its construction permits the four internal platinum lead wires to expand and contract in the same manner as those of silver-point thermometers. The all-quartz construction of the support-members gives the most stable performance with minimal drift, and a unique platinum radiation shield prevents heat radiating up the inside of the sheath. The temperature range and design of this new unit means that we offer 25.5W(Ro). The construction, including the coiled sensing element, heat-shunt baffles and light scattering barriers, creates a thermometer of unsurpassed stability. Because the 670 goes beyond the temperature range of oxide growth to the level at which the oxide dissociates, the 670 is filled conventionally with argon containing 10% oxygen.

A 2-metre length of low thermal emf, high temperature, screened cable is connected in the handle, via a strain-relieving transition, to the all pure-platinum construction of the thermometer. Gold-plated U-shaped terminals complete the cable construction, and the 670 is delivered in an elegant soft lined carry-case of our own design.

A 670 is delivered only after a stabilizing process which is complete when the reproducibility of RTPW is within 0.0005C after excursions to the extremes of its temperature range. Values of RTPW and WGA are routinely provided with the 670.

The 670 can be supplied with RTPW and WGA only or with full UKAS calibration. "With calibration" means that you will get an internationally accepted Fixed Point calibration.

For best accuracy, recommended maximum measuring currents for the 670 is 1mA although up to 10 times this current should not permanently damage the standard.

A comprehensive handbook and tutorial will help you get the very best performance and stability from your 670.

The thermometer has a standard length of 650mm.
