Accredited calibration/NIST traceable calibration certificate for REED VC14+ Portable Temperature Calibrator (Discontinued) might be available on request (for an extra charge). Please contact us for more info.
This Reed VC14+ temperature calibrator has been discontinued. Information shown here is for reference only.
We recommend the new REED VC01 Temperature Calibrator. REED VC01 includes set of industrial test leads with alligator clips and is available for sale in Toronto, Canada.
This VC14+ temperature calibrator manufactured by Reed is an instrument recommended to manage all of your temperature calibration tasks. Reed VC14+ combines great process calibration features into a single and compact device and can measure and source DC voltage, resistance, thermocouple and RTD temperature. For resistance and RTD measurements, 2-wire, 2-wire or 4-wire connection method are available. The results are show clearly thanks to its 6-digit LCD readout with display. When the calibrator is running on batteries and no key is operated for approximately 10 minutes, the calibrator turns off automatically.

Sourcing DC Voltage
Using the"mV" key to select DC voltage source function, select the desired range from 100mV,1000mV by pressing the "RANG" key and set the output value digit by digit using the arrows keys.The calibrator sources the DC-voltage signal between the output terminals.
Using the "OHM" key to select Ohm function. Using the "RANGE"key, select the desired range.Set the output value digit by digit using each pair of arrows keys.The calibrator sources the preset resistance value between the output terminals.
Simulate Sourcing TC
VC14+ Reed Temperature Calibrator comes with an internal temperature sensor. You will use use the RJ sensor function to calibrate a divice. Using the "TC" key, select simulate TC source function. Using the "RANGE " key, select the desired range from K, E, J, T, B, N, R, S, L, U. Set the output value digit by digit using each pair of arrows keys. Based on the temperature detected by the RJ sensor, a thermoelectromotive force develops between the output terminals.
REED Temperature Calibrator (VC14+) offers a temperature monitor function, which is convenient for the user to observe the voltage value sourced between the output terminals in TC source function. In TC source function, the assistance district of the LCD shows the voltage value sourced between the output terminals,(varies responding to the changes of the reference junction compensation). Pressing the "T.DISP" key once more, the assistance district of the LCD shows the preset room temperature value.
Sourcing RTD with Reed VC14+
Using the" RTD"key, select RTD function. Using the "RANGE" key, select a desired RTD range from PT100, PT200, PT500, PT1000, Cu10, Cu50. Set the output value digit by digit using each pair of arrows keys. Reed VC14+ sources the preset resistance value between the output terminals.
Measurements From the calibrator, you can measure a DC voltage, resistance, thermocouple, RTD and continuity. For thermocouple signal connect the thermocouple convertor to the input terminals. Connect between TC terminals. The positive output lead wire of the thermocouple to the H terminal of the thermocouple convertor and the negative output lead wire to the L terminal.
Measuring DC Voltage and Resistance with Reed VC14+ are also very simple and intuitive. Just select resistance/DC Voltage measurement function, connect the lead cables for measurement and select the desired RANGE. The selected function and the measured value and unit shall be shown in the main districts part of the LCD.
Measuring Temperature with Thermocouple (TC)
Using the"TC" key, select TC measurement function. Using the measurement "RANGE" key, select the desired range from K, E, J, T, B, N, R, S, L,U. Connect the thermocouple convertor to the jack under test. The selected function and the measured value and unit shall be shown in the main districts part of the LCD.
Using RJ sensor
Select TC measurement function, in which RJ senor goes on work automatically, press "RJ-ON" key to shut off. Both the “RJ-ON” mark and the environmental temperature display vanish. Press the "RJ-ON" key once more to start the reference junction compensation and the “RJ-ON” mark displays on the middle of the screen, and the environmental temperature displays on the screen.
