Altek 322 Thermocouple Calibrator | Replace it with the updated PIE 322

Altek 322-1 Thermocouple calibrator – no longer in production!

The Altek 322 was designed back in 1987 and was last manufactured in 2016. The PIE 322-1 matches the Altek in fit, form and function for thermocouple types J, T, E & K with a few features bringing the design into the 21st century. It has a rubber boot and lower profile switches for protection in the field and a backlit display making it easier to use in the dark corners of your plant. Instead of the one expensive 9V battery in the Altek the PIE uses four less expensive common “AA” batteries. The PIE has the same resolution and accuracy as the Altek with longer battery life letting you calibrate more instruments between battery changes.
