Dual inputs provide exceptional accuracy
The Fluke 5020A has two inputs with removable sensing
probes. Each probe stores its own calibration constants, allowing probes to be
used interchangeably between channels and between 5020A units while retaining
full calibration integrity.
Two types of probes are available. The "S" model
provides standard accuracies of ± 0.25 ºC/ ± 2 % RH, while the "H" model
provides accuracy of ± 0.125 ºC/± 1.5 % RH. Both probes can be connected to
optional extension cables and mounted in remote locations up to 50 feet away
from the 5020A mainframe using the optional probe wall mount bracket.
Alternative, one probe can be mounted directly to the top of the 5020A.
Wide variety of display configurations and
The 5020A calculates dew point, heat index, and rates
of change for temperature and humidity. Min, max, and a variety of other
statistics are calculated and can be shown in more than 16 different user
configurable display formats and more than 12 display parameters. Daily summary
statistics, including min, max, and maximum rates of change are stored for the
most recent 60 days.
Alarms may be set based on temperature, RH, or on
rate of change of either parameter with the Fluke 5020A. Alarms are recorded to
the data file as well, giving the user the option of a visual alarm (display
flashing), audible alarm (beep) enunciation, or both. In addition to the setting
of alarm points from the easy-to-use keyboard and menu system of the 5020A,
alarms can be set using the 5020A-LW3 configuration, logging and trending
The 5020A has internal memory which can store up to
400,000 time-stamped data points. An optional 64 MB flash PC memory card is
available that allows the 5020A to store years of data. Data from the PC memory
card or internal memory may be displayed on the 5020A display using the
convenient push-button menu system or downloaded to a PC.
The 5020A satisfies many regulatory requirements for
security with its ability to respond to user name and password to ensure secure
data. Password access to sensor information, data records, statistics, alarms
and time are all built into the 5020A.
MET/CAL® Plus Calibration Software interface
The Fluke 5020A is easily interfaced to Fluke's
MET/CAL® Plus, the worldwide de facto standard in calibration software. This
unique feature allows MET/CAL Plus software (versions 7 or higher) to read
temperature and humidity from the 5020A directly into a calibration record as
you start to run a procedure. All the environmental information required for
your calibration becomes a permanent part of the calibration record - without
requiring you to enter the data manually or add it later when you create a
report. And using the 5020A with MET/CAL Plus software is easy, allowing you
even greater automation and convenience.
Multi-station, multi-room capability
MET/CAL Plus software can read multiple 5020As
located in different calibration areas, providing a perfect solution for large
calibration labs with multiple rooms or MET/CAL Plus software stations. Because
each 5020A is assigned a unique asset number, it can be viewed from any MET/CAL
software station in your system. This unique number also provides identification
required for traceability in quality and regulatory records.
Optional software retrieves, stores, analyzes
5020A-LW3 for Fluke software is a versatile
application that retrieves data from the Fluke 5020A and stores it in a single
database, to provide flexible, real-time and historical data management. You can
view data in easily-customized graphical and statistical formats for one or both
sensors at user-defined time intervals. View real-time data as it streams into a
chart format customized for your particular application.
5020A-LW3 lets you perform a variety of tasks:
- Customize multi-graph displays
- Review critical statistics at a glance
- Export data to popular spreadsheet programs
- Easily import data from your PC card or from the 5020A's onboard memory
- Control and trigger alarm events
- Configure multiple user accounts and security access
- Assign or change sensor names
- Store setup files
