Alicat's Portable Calibration Unit (PCU) was designed as a self contained, portable secondary calibration standard for easy transport and use.
Companies don't have to waste engineering time and money as well as lose revenue for equipment downtime while verifying calibration on in service flow equipment. Alicat PCUs are designed to operate in the field as secondary calibration standards without the need for hard power sources.
The Alicat PCU is built into an industrial briefcase and can be taken anywhere in the world to verify the operation of flow equipment. Unlike current secondary standards, the PCU is fully self-contained and does not require any additional support equipment or line power. It is as simple as having a tech arrive on site, plug the unit into the system and take readings. The PCU also has on-board digital output to send flow data to a laptop or other computer system.
The PCU is comprised of 3 individual Alicat M series flow meters powered by two standard 9V batteries. The unit will alert the user to replace the batteries when power falls below a minimum threshold via a bright led indicator.
Like Alicat's standard line of flow devices the PCU also has no large mechanical parts to service or fail.
The ranges of the flow meters are specified by the end user while ordering the PCU.
