Tokyo, Japan - June 13, 2013
Yokogawa Meters & Instruments Corporation announces that it will release the CA700 pressure calibrator on June 14. A highly accurate portable calibrator, the CA700 features a variety of functions that enable the efficient calibration of pressure/differential pressure transmitters and other types of field devices.
Plants typically have many field devices such as pressure/differential pressure transmitters and pressure switches that need regular calibration to maintain their measurement accuracy. A pressure calibrator is a type of measuring instrument that can be used to calibrate such field devices on site.
As the result of a growing awareness of the need for safety and stability in plant operations, increased attention is being paid to the maintenance and inspection of field devices. Thus, there is a strong need for calibrators that operate efficiently and perform to a high standard. The calibration of high-precision field devices requires calibrators that deliver greater accuracy and high performance. Yokogawa has developed the CA700 pressure calibrator to meet these needs.
Oil, gas, petrochemical, chemical, iron and steel, pulp and paper, electric power, and water supply and wastewater treatment industries
For commissioning or regular inspection with the following:
In 1988, Yokogawa released its first calibrator for the maintenance and inspection of plant field devices. It was based on technologies that had been acquired through the development of high-precision measurement instruments used in electrical equipment R&D and production line testing. Since then, the company has introduced a variety of calibrators for instrumentation signal (direct current and voltage), temperature, and pressure applications. Yokogawa will now follow up on its release of this high-precision CA700 pressure calibrator by continuing to develop new products that improve efficiency and quality in plant maintenance and inspection.
Yokogawa's global network of 90 companies spans 55 countries. Founded in 1915, the US$4 billion company conducts cutting-edge research and innovation. Yokogawa is engaged in the industrial automation and control (IA), test and measurement, and other businesses segments. The IA segment plays a vital role in a wide range of industries including oil, chemicals, natural gas, power, iron and steel, pulp and paper, pharmaceuticals, and food.

The new Yokogawa CA700 Portable Pressure Calibrator is equipped with a silicon resonant sensor that uses Yokogawa proprietary DPHARP technology. The CA700 can measure pressures with an accuracy that is within ±0.01% of rdg*, making it one of the most accurate portable pressure calibrators on the market.
