ADT223 Process Calibrator by Additel  

The ADT223A by Additel is a highly integrated multifunction calibrator featuring several patented technologies, the ADT223A is an ultra-compact, rugged, and easy to  use hand-held device for sourcing, simulating and measuring pressure, temperature, and electrical signals. Its smartphone-like menu and interface make the operation simpler and easier. With HART communication capability, the 223A is ideal for calibrating, maintaining, and troubleshooting HART instrumentations. Automation and documentation capabilities make the ADT223A a turnkey solution.

  Applications
 

Additel's ADT223A multifunction calibrator is a process tool for measuring, sourcing and simulating mA, mV, V, RTDs, thermocouples, ohms, frequency, pulses and pressure, captures switch values and provides 24 V loop power.

Sourcing, simulating and measuring temperature and electrical signals

  • Sources and measures mV, mA, ohms, RTDs, thermocouples, frequency, and pulses 
  • Simulates and measures 13 thermocouples and 11 RTDs to calibrate transmitters 
  • Measures and sources pressure using 160 series Intelligent Digital Pressure Modules from -15 psi to 10,000 psi (-1 bar to 700 bar) 
  • 24V loop power supply 
  • Simultaneous dual reading capability 
  • Automatic switch test 
  • Supports square root transmitter 
  • Pulse frequency output for the calibration of flow totalizer

Easy to use 

  • Smartphone-like menu and interface make the operation simpler and easier 
  • Ultra-compact, size 3.9” x 7.6” x 2.0” (100mm x 192mm x 52mm), and weight 1.6 lb (0.7 kg) 
  • One hand operation

Calibrated cold junction compensation (Patented) 

  • Cold junction equivalent block in the calibrator 
  • A calibrated PRT element with flexible leads is installed in the equivalent block for thermocouple cold junction compensation 
  • This PRT element can be pulled out from the calibrator and re-calibrated and corrected at ice point by users

Built-in temperature readout 

  • CVD coefficients of a calibrated PRT can be input into the calibrator for accurate temperature measurement

Multi lingual interface   

  • English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese (Traditional Chinese, Japanese and Russian are available per request)  

Documenting and automated procedure capability 

  • Manage the information of the device under test. 
  • Set up automated calibration procedures, and ADT 221A performs the test, calculates the errors, displays and/or stores the results in the memory, and highlights the out-of-tolerance points.   
  • As-found and As-left functions allow recording and documenting results for quality control. 
  • Download tasks and upload the results. 
  • Snapshots allow you to capture and save work.

Build-in unit conversion tool 

  • Build-in converters for pressure units, temperature units, temperature vs. resistance (RTDs), and temperature vs millivolt (thermocouples)

Display  3.5 inch TFT color screen

Rugged 

  • Rugged design for harsh environments. 
  • Passed a 1-meter drop test. 
  • Three year warranty for the 223A, and one year for the battery pack

Hart Communication capability Support HART® instrumentation

Misuse protection 

  • Up to 30V voltage on any two sockets and up to 1A current on current sockets will not damage the calibrator.
  • The calibrator will return to normal condition as soon as the voltage or current is removed.

Rechargeable battery 

  • Rechargeable Li-ion battery for 15 hours uninterrupted use. 
  • Battery life will be reduced when 24V is applied. 
  • The rechargeable battery is replaceable.
