Swagelok Co. has introduced the Swagelok® M200 portable calibration unit, designed to provide on-site orbital welding power supply maintenance.
The unit allows for immediate calibration of a Swagelok welding system M200 power supply. Portable calibration helps minimize downtime, which is important for remote or secured environments, such as offshore oil drilling platforms, nuclear plants, and government sites, that cannot easily arrange power supply transport to and from service centers.
On-screen navigation on the power supply prompts users to initiate the calibration process. The calibration unit then performs various diagnostics and measures output levels. The calibration unit is designed to calibrate based on critical welding variables, including current, voltage, and electrode travel speed.
