JOFRA™ Reference Temperature Calibrator Just Got Better!
New RTC-187 Calibrator Expands Temperature Range for AMETEK’s Most Advanced Reference Temperature Calibration Line

LARGO, FL, USA – AMETEK Sensors, Test & Calibration’s most advanced and most accurate temperature calibration family—the JOFRA™ Reference Temperature Calibrator (RTC) —has gotten even better, with the addition of the RTC-187. The JOFRA RTC-187 calibrator provides high-quality temperature measurement from -45 to 180 degrees C.

That represents a 25 degrees C expansion over the previous product temperature range leader, the RTC-157. It’s top temperature of 180 degrees C is the hottest available for a calibrator that also can perform cold temperature calibrations. With the RTC-187, it’s possible to perform calibrations over a 225 degrees C (360degreesF) temperature range with only a single calibrator.

The RTC-187 offers all the features that distance JOFRA calibrators from the competition. That includes AMETEK’s patent-pending Dynamic Load Compensation (DLC) system that provides perfect temperature uniformity no matter the size or number of sensors immersed. All new RTC calibrators offer improved heating and cooling speeds that are up to 20% faster than comparable calibrators. The RTC-187 is compatible with the inserts used with the RTC-156 and RTC-157 calibrators.

In addition, the RTC-187 works with JofraCloud, which permits real-time remote calibration. JofraCloud saves time and improves work safety when calibrating sensors in difficult or dangerous locations. Similarly, JofraCloud can simplify clean room readings that otherwise would require a change of clothes to enter or exit every time a reading or new set point was needed. And, during a process shutdown, when time is of the essence, the calibration of multiple sensors in different locations can be done from a single device.

Three RTC-187 models are available: RTC-A reference temperature calibrator, RTC-B reference temperature calibrator with inputs for a reference sensor, DLC sensor and sensors-under-test, and RTC-C reference temperature calibrator with inputs for a reference sensor and DLC sensor.

All JOFRA calibrators are known for their accuracy, stability and reliability. RTC calibrators were specifically designed with an intuitive easy-to-use interface and come with proprietary JofraCal software as standard.
