The Crystal HPC50 calibrator from Cameron Instruments is said to combine the features from Crystal 30 Series intrinsically safe wide range pressure IS33 calibrators, such as ease of use, ruggedness, compactness, and reliability with improvements such as a larger display, more measurement options, temperature measure and external modules.

Similar to the 30 Series, the HPC50 is also CSA intrinsically safe rated for the North American market. Continuing Crystal’s specifications, it is also fully temperature compensated for pressure, temperature, and electrical measurements.

The connection ports on the side of the HPC50 support new intrinsically safe pressure (APMi) and temperature (ATMi) modules. The ports are identical, so users can connect two separate temperature modules, which allows them to measure both ambient and process temperatures.

When combined with the standard internal pressure ports, users can read two pressure and two temperature inputs with the same device. Alternatively, if it is necessary to connect to multiple pressure sources, users can equip the HPC50 with four pressure ports, using the new pressure modules, and view all four at the same time.

The HPC50 also features an “Advanced Simplicity” user interface. The easy-to-learn and even easier-to-use interface is said to make navigating between functions quick and easy. No deep menu structures, no confusing or hidden icons, just advanced simplicity, the company says.
