Fluke has introduced Compass for Pressure 3.0, a software solution that helps calibration professionals to organise and accelerate the task of calibrating pressure devices.

Compass for Pressure is a universal platform designed to meet all pressure calibration software requirements.

It provides an off-the-shelf software tool to maximise the automation of calibration and testing processes.

Compass for Pressure integrates calibration functions with pressure-specific factors that are missing from more generic software packages, according to the company.

This pressure calibration software enables calibration professionals to advance from individual automated hardware components to a fully automated calibration system quickly, without consuming internal engineering resources.

Compass software, and the assistance available from the product application specialists at the Fluke DH Instruments Division, removes the unknowns often associated with getting automated systems online.

Compass software is structured around unit-under-test and test definitions.

Unit-under-test definitions identify devices to be tested with all their characteristics.

Test definitions define test sequences and all the details of test execution.

The pressure reference devices, data acquisition equipment and auxiliary measurement and control devices available to Compass software are set up and stored in a hardware database.

All DH Instruments devices and many commonly used data acquisition products are already set up as examples to simplify the implementation of actual test hardware.

Fluke claims that users can change hardware selections without programming or interfacing skills.

Compass software also enables users to export test data directly to the Met/Base database used by the Met/Cal Plus calibration management system.

Users can now manage their inventory, calibration location, maintenance and customers through Met/Track software.

Users gain the benefits of the Compass software’s specialisation in pressure calibration while maintaining the link to their organisation’s overall calibration management system.

Compass for Pressure 3.0 is available in two versions: the basic version performs basic calibration and testing on units under test, even those that may have complex outputs; and the enhanced version supports complex tests, including custom user macros within the test sequence and multiple outputs from a single unit under test.

Each version is available for a single user or for a multi-user worksite.

Fluke Calibration

Fluke Corporation was founded in 1948, specialising in electrical test and measurement products. Early in its history, Fluke recognised that the very best electrical metrology would be needed to support its products and undertook to develop this capability. From this activity, the calibration business was born. Over the years, many breakthrough calibration products were introduced, establishing Fluke as a leader in electrical metrology.

In 2000, Fluke acquired Wavetek Precision Measurement. In 2001, Fluke’s calibration business expanded into the temperature field with the acquisition of Hart Scientific and then into pressure and gas flow with the acquisition of DH Instruments (2007), followed by Ruska and Pressurements (2010).

The unified business’s unmatched breadth and depth in metrology puts Fluke Calibration in a unique position to deliver today’s and tomorrow’s calibrations solutions to customers who demand the very best, supported by an organisation they can count on for the long term.
