The 5011 is a versatile, high accuracy calibrator that can be used in a wide range of applications across various industries. Primarily used as a programmable resistance / RTD source, the 5011 provides precision resistance with a best accuracy of 0.01% and 1mΩ resolution (50Ω to 1kΩ). 

Internal options for increased capabilities can be fitted as per customer requirement. These include DC voltage and thermocouple simulation, DC current, and frequency. The 5011 can be used as a laboratory grade resistance and temperature calibrator, or incorporated into an automated test system for dedicated signal injections. A rack mount kit option is also available.

Simple Operation and Clear Visual Display
Front panel operation allows the user to quickly set the function and output required. Using the jog / shuttle dial deviation the user can finely adjust the output value as a percentage (+/- 9.99%). All this information is shown on an easy to read LED display.  

As standard the 5011 uses a SCPI command structure for programming. It also supports the Time Electronics 9811/19/20 command set making it an ideal replacement for these legacy models.

Flexible Options
A range of internally fitted options are available for the 5011, providing added functionality and features. The DCV / Thermocouple option provides a DC voltage source (+/- 20V) and simulates thermocouple types K, J, T, R, S, N, E and B. With the DC current option fitted the 5011 can source up to 220mA. This makes the instrument ideal for accurate process control calibration. Also available is a 0.1Hz to 10MHz frequency option (Period 100ns to 10s). The output is variable with a best resolution setting of 0.1Hz.

EasyCal Software - Manage, Automate and Optimise the Calibration Process
Connect the 5011 to a PC/Laptop (via RS-232, GPIB, or USB) installed with EasyCal software and automate the calibration process. This provides increased speed of calibration and consistency of results. Easily produce calibration certificates and reports to ISO 9001, ISO 17025, and other international quality standards.
