The EA001A Thermocouple Calibration Adapter connects to the 3000A/4000 Range of calibrators and offers either :


> Automatic Compensation (using a built-in temperature sensor at the point of connection)

> Manual Compensation (manually entered using the calibrator keypad or using ProCal)


To allow ProCal to display the cold junction selection control panel, a test must be set to show a test prompt before the test starts.


To do this, follow the steps below :


STEP 1 : Edit the procedure using ProEdit (set the 'before test prompt' to be displayed)


File > Edit an Existing Procedure


Select the procedure to edit by seraching for, for example, a model number (or click START SEARCH to view all procedures):


Select the peocedure to edit, then click ACCEPT :


Step through the procedure instrument information screens and edit the test lines as shown below :


Click NEXT to continue through to the uncertainty statements and traceable instruments screen


Click NEXT to proceed to the test edit screen


The test edit screen will be displayed - click the TEST LIST button to view all tests :


Select the first temperature test in the list, then click OK :


Edit the prompt settings by clicking on the PROMPTS tab for this first temperature test and ensure it is set to YES -

if not already set, you may like to enter some prompt test such as 'Please check the cold junction value'


STEP 2 : Run ProCal


ProCal will display the 'before test prompt' for the tests configured (as above) - 

the prompt screen displayed before the test will display the cold junction settings as shown below :


Select the cold junction compensation mode as required.
