The QUARTZ temperature calibrator is a compact instrument used to calibrate transducers,
RTD and temperature-measuring sensors in the field and in the laboratory. The possibility to
generate positive and negative temperature ramps makes it suitable for use in calibrating and
The QUARTZ oven consists of a metal block measuring 35 mm in diameter and 140 mm in
height, it doesn’t use external refrigerating liquids and the metal block is heated and cooled by
The QUARTZ is equipped with a new PID microprocessor controller with a resolution up to
0,01 °C, setting of the standard of measurement in °C / °F, programming of ascent/descent
ramps and storage of the thermostats’ operative temperature.
In the QUARTZ-2I version, the instrument is equipped with an acquisition card having two
adjustable inputs (PtT00 3/4 wires; thermocouples: J, K, N, R, S) with bushes fitted with goldplated
contacts and automatic compensation of the cold junction.
The first input is provided for the reference sample probe, thus obtaining a complete
calibration system which can be certified by S.I.T. centres, in compliance with ISO 9000
The second input is provided for probes that are being tested; hence, the instrument can
display the temperature of the well, the temperature of the sensor to be checked and of the
reference sample probe, at the same time.
The QUARTZ is furnished with the RS232 serial interface to operate in automatic mode
connected to the PC by means of the AQ2sp software which enables to carry out probe
calibrations, test of thermostat and cyclical life tests; test results can be stored and printed,
so they are easily traceable in compliance with ISO 9000 standards.
