The MT220 can measure pressure with outstanding accuracy, high resolution, minimal tempco, and excellent stability. It offers a wealth of functions for field calibration, including transmitter output measurement (DCV/DCA functions), 24-V DC output, percent error readout, measurement data memory, and Ni-Cd battery operation. The D/A conversion output makes it simple to output data to a recorder or other equipment. And of course, data output through a GP-IB or RS-232 interface is also possible-including data output during operation on a 12 V DC power supply or Ni-Cd batteries.
Numerous calibration options:
High accuracy: ±0.01% of reading, with a maximum allowable input of 500 kPa (130 kPa-range model)
High-performance, and High-Efficiency Field Calibration
In electric power, gas, nuclear power, oil refinery, petrochemical and pharmaceutical plants, numerous sensors are used to measure such variables as pressure, temperature and flow rate, and to automate the process. These sensors must be calibrated periodically to maintain product quality. However, because there are typically so many pressure and differential pressure transmitters out in the field, the transmitters are usually calibrated in-situ. This calibration accounts for much of plant maintenance work. Efficiency is therefore crucial to maintain uptime of equipment and facilities.
The MT220 is a precision digital manometer for use with pressure/differential pressure transmitters and is designed to maximize the efficiency of field calibration work.
High allowable input pressure
The maximum allowable input pressure is as high as 500 kPa (such as in the 130 kPa-range model). Now you don't have to worry about sensor breakdown due to overrange pressure input.
Functions Tailored to Your Calibration Work
Calibration involves inputting the same pressure level to both a calibrator and a transmitter and comparing the transmitter output with a value measured by the calibrator. The MT220 comes with all the functions you need for such calibration work in the plant or field. Practical functions include measuring transmitter output (1-5 V or 4-20 mA), outputting 24 V DC for driving the transmitter, and indicating the transmitter output error as a percent value. The MT220 even has a pressure range pre-adjusted to that of transmitters.
Assured Compatibility with Earlier Models
The specifications of the MT220 are based on the earlier series of MT120 manometers to ensure compatibility; both series also share the same communications commands.
Other Major Functions
Many other handy functions found on the front and rear panels help you implement your specific applications successfully.
Full Support for Higher Accuracy of Pressure/Differential Pressure Transmitters
The accuracy of pressure/differential pressure transmitters has continued to improve, from ±0.25% to ±0.1%, and now to ±0.075%. That means the accuracy and stability of the manometers used to calibrate these transmitters must keep pace.
The MT220 employs Yokogawa's original silicon resonant sensor-a high precision pressure sensing device. We've also set up an advanced calibration environment, including a tightly-controlled traceability system. As a result, our calibrators feature basic accuracy as high as ±0.02%, and excellent stability. With the MT220, you can verify the performance of even the most accurate of pressure/differential pressure transmitters, i.e. ±0.075%.
