The Practical Instrument Electronics (PIE) Model 511 RTD Simulators simulate standard RTD curves over the entire industrial temperature range. Choose between seven standard RTD curves.

The PIE 511 will simulate RTD resistances into all types of instruments such as transmitters, recorders, controllers, alarms, data acquisition, and computer systems. Rest easy knowing these calibrators are 100% compatible with pulsed systems and transmitters like the Rosemount 3144 Transmitter. The PIE 511 is a superior replacement for decade boxes, so there is no need to lug a decade box around or be prone to error by reading RTD tables incorrectly. The PIE 511 has better accuracy, functions and compatibility than many higher priced RTD calibrators.

The EZ-Check function allows the user to store three output temperatures for real convenience. This will save time for repetitive calibrations by instantly recalling the three stored temperature values. Three output settings can be stored, and all settings are saved, even with the power off. This PIE instrument also comes with a NIST certification.
