With the Morehouse Portable Calibrating Machine, you can benefit from a laboratory-grade force calibration system in the field. Quick-change tension adapters, quick-adjust calibration height, and quick setup will save your valuable time in the field; while the calibrator provides precision force measurements.  This system eliminates the need to carry and stack weights for calibration of load cells, hand-held force gauges, and other force equipment below 500 lbf which helps improve operator safety.  

Morehouse Portable Calibrating Machine

Morehouse Portable Calibrating Machine (Model: PCM2K) was designed with field calibration requirements in mind, and with the goal of providing all necessary force calibration tools in a portable package. This calibrator gives you accurate and stable force measurements in a robust and low-maintenance design. The system is equipped with several time-saving features that enable a quality force calibration where portability and time are of critical importance. Additionally, with Morehouse continuous support, you can expand the capabilities of this system to accommodate a wider range of force sensors such as shear web load cells, S-type load cells, force gauges, button load cells, beam load cells, etc.


Morehouse Portable Calibrating Machine features:

·         Available capacities: up to 2000 lbf

·         Two configurations available, one with an extra 8 inches in height (PCM-2k-2)

·         Tension and compression calibrations in one setup

·         Fine adjustment of the calibration load

·         Lowering the risk of overloading small force measurement

·         Capable of calibrating handheld force gauges using Morehouse Handheld Force Gauge Adapters

·         Quick-Change Tension Member system to use a variety of tension adapters

·         Quick calibration height adjustment

·         Quick reference standard change capabilities

·         Capable of controlling force application as low as 0.005 lbf based on the resolution of the reference standard used

·         Low-maintenance, manual operation system

·         Eliminates safety concerns from carrying and stacking large amounts of weights for calibration 

The Morehouse Portable Calibrating Machine can be used to calibrate the following force-proving instruments:

Washer Load Cell, Universal Load Cell, Low Capacity Load Cell, Miniature Load Cells, Button Load Cell, S-Beam Load Cell, General Purpose Load Cell, Load Cell, Force Transducer, Digital Force Gauge,Hand Held Force Gage, Force Gage, Dynamometers, and more.

* Example: If the calibrating machine is equipped with a 1000 lbf standard reference load cell with 2.0 mV/V rated output, the control capability of the machine would be ±0.01 lbf or ± 0.00002 mV/V.

    The portable calibrator testing went well! It met more than our needs in the two functions I tested, being its ability to hold load and the stability of the hand wheel.
