Fluke 5790B AC Measurement Standard


Precision ac voltage and current measurements have never been this easy

The 5790B AC Measurement Standard is a multi-purpose ac measurement and transfer standard designed for the most demanding calibration applications. It combines the accuracy you would expect from a thermal transfer standard with the ease of use of a digital multimeter. Absolute ac voltage measurement uncertainties are as low as ± 24 ppm (one year, 23 °C ± 5 °C). The 5790B is designed to meet the complete ac voltage, ac current and wideband verification requirements of the Fluke Calibration 5735A, 5720A, and 5700A Multifunction Calibrators; 5522A, 5502A, 5520A, and 5500A Multi-Product Calibrators; plus other calibrators, amplifiers like the 52120, 5725A and 5205A/5215A, and transfer standards and ac voltmeters.

The 5790B covers an alternating voltage range of 600 μV to 1000 V, and a frequency range of 10 Hz to 1 MHz. Wideband voltage options extend frequency range to 30 or 50 MHz.

  The 5790B/AF has enhanced absolute accuracy to ± 0.23 % of voltage (1 year after factory calibration, 23 °C ± 3 °C, at 95 % confidence level) at 50 MHz and 223.61 mV, using a serialized one meter cable, characterized at that point for RF power meter 0 dBm reference output measurement. In the RF power measurement mode, the accuracy is specified to the end of the serialized cable with a curve fit for the other ranges and frequencies that is a first order correction for cable loss.
