The 1000 series has transformed the world of calibration - its innovative design utilises the latest in cutting edge digital and analogue electronics, combined with the latest manufacturing techniques to create the world's first ultra-portable full-function calibrator.
Transmille have applied their expertise in designing bench and transportable calibrators to create a new generation of multifunction calibrators that offer true portability at a price that ensures rapid return on investment.
For the first time, the 1000 Series allows you to easily take your calibration laboratory with you. A significant improvement in portability and warm-up time changes how and where calibration can be performed.
On site calibration is performed globally in hostile environments where large and fragile multiproduct calibrators made on site calibrations difficult to perform. The 1000 series is easy to carry at under 10kg (22lbs) and with a small footprint is ready to use anywhere. The 1000A is built into a ruggedised case rated IP67 for protection against ingress of water and dust ensuring a long working life in hostile environments. With a warm-up time of less than 20 minutes to 80ppm accuracy the 1000A is ready to test when you are.
Both portable and lightweight, the 1000 series provides all the capabilities you would expect from a traditional full sized calibrator. With outputs to 1000V and 10A without the need for external accessories, the 1000 series allows you to calibrate a wider workload faster than ever before.
- Full function, ultra portable calibrator
- AC/DC Voltage output to 1000V
- AC/DC current to 10A (500A using EA002 Coil)
- Resistance to 100 MOhms
- Thermocouple solution
- Full compatibility with ProCal software
True Portable Power
A dedicated rugged and ultra portable design with a fast warm-up time that is ideal for on-site use, designed to calibrate multiple instrument types with power to drive older analogue instruments and the accuracy to calibrate modern digital instruments.
With functions to cover many types of testers to ensure a wide workload coverage, and the ability to configure in either portable or bench top formats, the 1000 Series offers the flexibility that you need.
ProCal is the genuinely easy to use calibration software that complements the 1000 Series calibrators to provide a complete laboratory solution. Maximum calibration throughput is achieved with multi-discipline support.

Why do Transmille have a timeout on the high voltage output?
We believe that safety is a prime consideration of a laboratory, second only to performance of our products.
Imagine a situation where a laboratory technician has finished calibration for the day, and has disconnected the instrument under test, but left the voltage source on at a setting of 1000V AC.
Later that evening, a cleaner comes into your laboratory or facility and touches the test leads left on the bench, potentially receiving a very nasty shock. Transmille have added this safety feature to avoid situations of this type from happening.
There are, however, cases where the timeout wishes to be extended, or even disabled. This can be performed through the Calibrator Setup program via your computer, or can be disabled prior to shipping on request.
Why do Transmille products feature USB or RS232 as standard interfaces rather than GPIB/IEEE 488?
Transmille products have been designed to most accurately represent the requirements of modern commercial laboratories and the typical equipment that is found inside.
Almost all modern computers are fitted with a USB interface, so to enable direct connection without the requirement for additional adapters a USB connection is provided.
IEEE 488/GPIB interfaces are typically quite expensive, and are another lead/connection to remember when performing on-site calibration work.
GPIB interface options are available on our multiproduct calibrators, and are included as standard on the 8000 series multimeters.
Why is the Transmille thermocouple option external rather than internal?
Transmille's EA001/EA001A has been designed to minimise typical errors associated with calibration of thermocouple meters that are ignored by other designs.
By making the thermocouple option external, the low voltage output (in the order of 0mV to 100mV, with accuracies in the microvolt level required for accurate simulation) is away from any heat generating components in the calibrator therefore reducing any localised thermal EMF effects.
The inclusion of a Thermocouple plug removes the need to find compensation cables of the correct type, which is a considerable source of error. If the wrong type of compensation cable (for example, when simulating a K type thermocouple, a J type compensating cable) is used there will be a significant error introduced through use of the wrong cable.
Finally, a temperature measurement is conducted at the connection with the UUT, in the thermocouple plug itself. This is measuring the cold junction as close to the internal measurement of the UUT as possible, removing localised differences in temperature.
