Ramping Feature
The 5018 includes an internal ramping feature. A ramp rate per range for each function can be set via a PC. The option to ramp the output can be turned on or off via the front panel. This is particularly useful in aviation and automotive industries for testing analogue gauges.

Simple Operation and Clear Visual Display
Simple front panel operation allows the user to quickly set the function and output required. Using the jog / shuttle dial deviation the user can finely adjust the output value as a percentage (+/- 99.99%). All this information is shown on a clear, easy to read LED display.

GPIB, RS-232, and USB Interfaces
These interfaces allow the 5018 to be connected to a PC and controlled by an external program such as Time Electronics’ EasyCal calibration software. The 5018 uses a SCPI command structure for programming. This makes writing control programs in Visual Basic, C and Labview a simple task.

EasyCal Software – Manage, Automate and Optimise the Calibration Process
Connect the 5018 to a PC or laptop (via RS-232, GPIB or USB) installed with Time Electronics EasyCal software and automate the calibration process. Increase speed of calibration and consistency of results. Easily produce calibration certificates and reports to ISO 9001, ISO 17025, and other international quality standards.

EasyCal has the ability to control a wide range of programmable instruments and comprehensive ATE systems can be configured to control a variety of applications. It has full read back capability and therefore can perform closed loop testing. Conditional tests can be configured to allow decision making to further enhance the usefulness.
