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.

    We are very pleased with this portable compression/tension Calibrator. It's fast, easy to use and most important it's extremely accurate. With the quick change adapter kit makes calibration of Force Gauges and small transducers so simple and fast! Also the support from Morehouse is second to none. Thanks again!

    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.
