Pressure gages now equipped with calibration reminder system

An automatic calibration-reminder system has been added to the XP2i pressure gage (photo). The new system greatly reduces the possibility of using gages after their calibration dates and potentially incurring regulatory fines. Manual record-keeping and notifications are replaced by customizable onscreen alerts prior to the due date, warning alerts on and after the due date, and an optional capability to lock the gage from use after its calibration due date. Dates, reminders and message types are set by supervisors using software. The intrinsically safe XP2i gage offers high-accuracy pressure recording in harsh environments from –10 to 50°C. Key features include an IP-67 rated, marine-grade enclosure, a fast pressure-safety-valve (PSV) mode, custom engineering units and a leak-free pressure fitting connection. — Crystal Engineering, a unit of Ametek Sensors, Test & Calibration, San Luis Obispo, Calif.
