Single Type RTD Calibrator PIE 510B | Source only; also ohms


Single RTD Simulator

The PIE Model 510B simulates RTD resistances into all types of process instruments including transmitters, recorders, controllers, alarms, data acquisition, and computer systems. No longer will you need to need to lug a decade box around or make errors reading RTD tables incorrectly. The PIE 510B is a superior replacement for decade boxes while eliminating errors caused by misreading RTD to resistance tables by allowing you to dial directly in temperature. The PIE 510B has better accuracy than many higher priced RTD calibrators.

  • Accurate to ±0.25°C (±0.5°F) for Pt 100 Ohm RTD’s with 0.1° resolution
  • Source one dedicated RTD curve with Direct Temperature Output
  • Selectable °C or °F
  • Several Manufacturers RTD Curves Available – plus custom curves for Platinum, Copper & Nickel sensors
  • Guaranteed compatible with devices using pulsed excitation currents including PLCs, DCS, multi channel recorders, etc.
  • Works with a wide variety of smart transmitters including popular Rosemount and Honeywell models
  • EZ-Dial™ Knob with two dialing speeds makes adjusting output easy
  • EZ-Check™ switch stores settings for 0% and 100% span adjustments
  • Uses four standard “AA” Alkaline Batteries
  • Superior battery life of 45 hours under typical continuous usage
  • Easy access to battery compartment
  • Lightweight and Rugged with a Solid Feel
  • Small and tough
  • Protected to 60V
  • Optional Rubber Boot, Carrying Case and Test Data available
  • NIST Traceable Calibration Certificate included FREE


vs Altek 11 Discontinued - Suggested replacement PIE 510B or PIE 511B

Advantages of the PIE 510B over the Altek 11 RTD calibrator

  • Continuously select output temperatures
    Works will all instrument ranges across the full range in degrees C & F. Not limited to 11 temperature steps!
  • Works with Pt 100 & 1000 Ohm, Cu or Ni RTDs
    One simulator replaces ALL the ranges for any single RTD type of the Altek 11
  • Instantly select output three temperatures
    Flip the EZ-Check switch to calibrate zero, span and mid-point
  • LCD display with backlight
    Easy viewing in dark locations
  • More resistant to accidental damage
  • Includes Certificate of Calibration
    All PIE Calibrators come with a free signed and dated certificate. Altek calibrators come only with an unsigned Statement of Calibration Practices with a certificate of calibration available for an extra charge.
