The Yokogawa CA11E, Handy Calibrator, is a small, lightweight, dedicated calibrator that can simultaneously source and measure voltage and current. The CA11E is ideal for calibration and equipment checking needs at maintenance and production sites, requiring only instrument to make your task much easier. In addition, The CA11E incorporates a rotary switch and up and down keys for simple operation, its easy to carry out field calibration without needing to consult an instruction manual. Just open the carrying case cover and connect the cables, and you’re ready to take measurements.

When source output (positive voltage and current output) is selected, the error amplifier A1 is maintained for the output control circuit and the DC-DC converter output stabilized as a result. The output is controlled so that the feedback voltage from the output selection circuit becomes equal to the D-A converter output. This involves dividing the output voltage by the voltage range and feeding back the voltage drop in the output current shunt to the input side of the A1 amplifier of the output selection circuit. In this case, the service life of the battery should be improved by limiting unnecessary power consumption. This can be achieved by controlling the output voltage of the DC-DC converter so that the voltage drop in the output stabilizing elements takes the minimum value required for control even if the output voltage varies. The current SINK function controls the current sunk from the power supply applied externally using the output control circuit.

The protection circuit detects the current through the output terminal and the voltage across the output terminals, and cuts off the output circuit if the current and/or voltage exceed their specified values. Although a relay is normally used for the on/off element, this calibrator uses MOSFET so that the inputs of both polarities can be cut off at a high speed.
