The term process meter can be used to cover a wide variety of devices, however actual process meters sold by test equipment manufacturers are designed for the control and measurement of a wide range of process variables such as current and voltage inputs. Functions in these instruments can vary with some top of the range models available with switching relays, inbuilt power supplies and current/voltage signal input adjustment features. Many devices also include digital LED displays and communication or download features to further increase their value to technicians.
Process meters are used extensively for control and measurement purposes in the manufacturing, oil and gas, chemical, utilities, and food processing sectors. These instruments are therefore designed to be easy to read, robust and reliable devices so they can be used in harsh field-based environments. There are many different functionality options available when it comes to process meters, so technicians have a difficult choice when it comes to selecting the best possible instrument for their application. The growth in functionality has also led to a greater use of computer and smartphone applications to control or program the instrument.
The fact these devices are used for both control and measurement means that regular calibration is a must to ensure they are still functioning correctly across all parameters. Calibrationhouse boasts a large array of test equipment and standards to ensure all features of modern process meters are covered in our process meter calibration service. This service is available both onsite at customer premises and within our laboratory.
