10 In short it is … CONFIDENCE The NEW 5502A gives its users confidence More than 11 electrical calibration functions for wide workload coverage with an excellent value + Robust Protection, Easy transportability Benefits of the 5502A


12 On other calibrators one accidental electrical overload can damage up to 3 internal circuits/systems & the main system board COSTLY REPAIRS $$$$ Common overload damage Burned Circuit Assemblies Blown Chips

13 What if a technician accidentally connects ……. AC mains voltage into the resistance terminals no damage The calibrator’s test leads to live voltage terminals calibrating an in-situ panel meter no damage A thermocouple pair with large a common mode voltage into the TC terminals no damage A Meg ohm meter, initiates a test which applies 100s of volts into the resistance terminals no damage A high voltage to ANY Normal, AUX or TC connection terminal no damage An external current source to the AUX terminals and drives a current into the calibrator only the protection fuses need replacement 5502A offers protection from these common errors Examples of successful protection -

14 Reverse power protection Immediate output disconnect Check before connect Fuse protection With the added capabilities the calibrator will withstand accidental overloads, warn the operator of the error, and continue to calibrate properly – with no damage Eliminates costly repairs No downtime or lost productivity Benefits of the overload protection


16 MET/CAL Compatibility 5502A works seamlessly with the MET/CAL version 8.1, and future versions Easy upgrades of earlier systems through MetSupport Gold or as a purchased upgrade The new NVI format for MET/CAL makes procedure writing easier and insures strong future compatibility Existing 5500A and 9100A procedures will need to be translated to the new format when used with the 5502A Full Remote Control Command Compatibility 5502A remote control programming is identical to 5500 series Only the instrument identification response is the different (5502A rather than 5500A) Easy Automation of a 5502A

30 Frequently Asked Questions

31 Frequently Asked Questions - 1.What comes standard with the 5502A calibrator? The 5502A calibrator comes standard with all its various electrical functions. Scope calibration capability is optional. Included is a full report of calibration with data. An accredited report of calibration is optional. 2.What options can be installed in the 5502A? The two scope calibration options (300 MHz and 600 MHz) are the only options for this calibrator. These are available at time or purchase or installed by a service center at a future date as an upgrade. 3.Is MET/CAL compatible with the 5502A? Yes MET/CAL Release Version 8.1 is able to fully control the 5502A (Due out in Q3 2012). 4.How will existing MET/CAL users get this version of MET/CAL? Upgrades are available through the MetSupport Gold program, or as a purchased upgrade to an existing system. 31

32 Frequently Asked Questions - 5.Will existing MET/CAL 5500 or 9100 procedures work with the 5502A? No, because the calibrator’s output terminal configuration is different – and the resulting operator safety issues – a different FSC must be used to operate the 5502A with MET/CAL (rather than use the existing 5500A or 9100 FSCs). 6.Will the 5502A FSC use the old 5500A style syntax, or the newer 5522A style syntax? The 5502A will use the new Name Value Instrument syntax (NVI) – giving the user better flexibility in use, editing, and future calibrator upgrade compatibility. The 5500A used the old FSC syntax style MET/CAL implemented the 5502A with the new structure of FSC, similar to the 5522A FSC. As a result any 5500A procedures will need to be converted to the new FSC syntax. This can be done by the MET/CAL user, or by a translator process. More information on the translation process will soon to be furnished by the MET/CAL team. Similarly any existing 9100 procedures will need to be translated to the new 5502A MET/CAL FSC syntax. 32

33 Frequently Asked Questions - 7.Does the 5502A use same the commands of other Fluke 55XX calibrators? Yes the 5502A uses the same remote control commands as the earlier 5500A, 5520A and 5522A series calibrators. The only difference is that it answers the remote ID command with a response - that of being a 5502A. 8.Does the 5502A emulate the commands of Fluke/Wavetek 9100 calibrators? No the 5502A does not emulate the Fluke/Wavetek 9100 calibrator remote control commands. 9.What is the future availability of the 5500A calibrator? The 5500A will be phased out approximately 6 months after the 5502A introduction. 10.What is the future availability of the 9100 calibrator? The 9100 will soon go on limited availability with a last time buy period soon. 11.Is 5500A upgradable to 5502A? No a 5500A is not upgradeable to a 5502A. 33

34 Frequently Asked Questions - 12.Is 5502A upgradable to 5522A? No a 5502A is not upgradeable to a 5522A. 13.Will the user/operator manual be available together with 5502A at the same time? Yes, a full user’s manual will be available with the 5502A, in English language, supplied on a CD/DVD with the instrument. The getting started manual will translated in several languages, printed and supplied with the instrument. 14.Is the calibration procedure to calibrate the 5502A will be the same as 5500A? The performance verification procedure for the 5502A is similar, but not identical to the 5500A procedure. There are some range and specification differences between the two instruments. 15.Is a service manual available for the 5502A? A detailed service manual will be available at approximately one year after introduction. 34

35 The NEW 5502A = CONFIDENCE What the cal lab loved about the 5500A & 9100 is still there –More than 11 Functions for wide workload coverage We have added improved performance and functionality –Accuracy –Current –Resistance –Capacitance plus… –Robust protection –Easy use & transportation
