The APC500CBXXG are the latest in the new generation of AMETEK handheld pressure calibrators. This series was designed to meet high accuracy pressure calibration applications and to make your tasks easier. The APC500C BXXG offers features such as dual information display, 17 different pressure units, transmitter supply, scalable mA input for % error calculation, serial communications, and external pressure module capability. The accuracy of the APC500C-BXXG is deadweight caliber throughout the range and is temperature compensated for operation in controlled or in process applications. This is a truly superior pressure calibrator.

The APC500CBXXG series of pressure modules extends the application base for the APC calibrators by allowing for calibrations in ranges other than those of the indicator; and at a lower cost than purchasing another APC. The APC500CBXXG modules are also compatible with several other Ametek calibrators.

Calibration of the instrument may be performed locally without returning the APC500CBXXG unit to the manufacturer. Everything needed is an accurate pres-sure reference. If a factory calibration is require, the pump and indicator are independent and only the indicator needs to be returned.
This system includes the dual function pneumatic hand pump. With this pump you can calibrate both vacuum and pressure applications.

It takes just a few seconds to switch between vacuum and pressure, just push one button (valve) on the T-930 handpump.

The APC500CBXXG comes in an aluminum carrying case with cutouts for fittings, hose and the complete assembled calibration unit - no time required to assemble the unit every time.

The indicator and the pump are fitted with a special quick connector that makes it possible to separate the system in seconds without any tool. This quick connector also makes it possible to use the assembled system with the indicator twisted to any angle.


Clear dual line display Large digits display the pressure, icons show current status and mode, and the smaller digits show device-under-test conditions.
mA/% Save time and effort in calculating the error between the APC and the device-under-test by entering the pressure range corresponding to 4-20mA. This gives immediate read-out of the error in %.You can also read mA or % of 4-20mA in the display.
Electrical connections The APC indicator have inputs for mA readings for pressure switches and transmitters, including 24 VDC supply, and for external Ametek APM pressure modules.
ON / OFF Auto shut-off to extend battery life (user programmable).
Switch Type Perform semi-automatic pressure switch tests. The APC records the “close” and “open” pressure values and calculates the hysteresis (deadband). You change the pressure and the APC does the rest
MAX/MIN Reads the highest and lowest pressure value since you last reset the APC. Monitor a safety valve or look for pressure spikes in the process.
Pressure connections 1/8 in NPT female 15 bar (200 psi) and below.
1/8 in NPT male for 35 bar (500 psi) and above.
Units Easy access to 17 different pressure engineering units.
Serial interface Serial interface to communicate with a PC (terminal). Also used if adjustment of the unit is necessary.
Zero Keep the high accuracy: ZERO the instrument before every test.
JOFRACAL Calibration Software
The JOFRACAL calibration software ensures easy calibration of RTD´s, thermocouples, transmitters, thermoswitches, pressure gauges and pressure switches. JOFRACAL  can be used with Ametek DPC-500, APC, CPC and IPI pressure calibrators, all Ametek temperature calibrators, as well as Ametek AMC900, ASC300 multi signal calibrator and ASM-800 signal multi scanner.


Minimum Requirements:
  • Intel Pentium II 1.4 GHz Processor
  • 64MB Ram (128MB recommended)
  • Standard VGA (800x600, 256 colors). 1024x768 Recommended
  • CD-Rom Drive for installation of program
  • 1 or 2 free RS-232 serial ports, depending on configurations
Minimum Requirements:
  • Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, Microsoft Windows 2000,
  • Microsoft Windows ME, Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista\
  • System fonts: MS Sans Serif, Arial
Calibration Software:   View PDF

JOFRACAL calibration software may also be used for manual calibrations, as it can be set up to accept manual entry of calibration data together with other liquid baths, ice points or dry-block heat sources. The calibration data collected may be stored on a PC for later recall or analysis. The ITC calibrator stores the calibration procedure and may be taken out to the process site without using a personal computer. Once all calibrations are completed, the data may be uploaded to the JOFRACAL  calibration software for post-processing and printing of certificates. The calibration data collected may be stored on the personal computer for later recall or analysis.

Ametek APM module
The Ametek APM external pressure modules extend the range of the Ametek APC500CBXXG. There are more than 60 models available with gauge, absolute, differential, and vacuum pressure references and in metric and imperial engineering units. The modules are engineered for in-plant, field, or laboratory use. They are ready-to-use with the Ametek APC500CBXXG and the protocol allows for immediate recognition and use of the module once plugged into the calibrator.
