Method of working:
Adapter sleeves or calibration inserts that are suitable for the temperature sensors or
temperature measuring instruments to be tested are inserted in the calibrator
( § 4.3 "Preparing of the calibrator").
They give the test specimen a secure fit and ensure optimum heat transfer.
Once all the preparations have been carried out, the calibrator can be switched on ( § 4.4).
The calibrator heats or cools the metal block or tank to the set temperature. As soon as this
temperature has been reached and is stable, the calibrator signals accordingly.
The calibration of the test specimen can now be carried out. Then, the next test point is
approached or the testing procedure is ended.
Functionality:
The measuring inserts ( p. 17) of the calibrator have different characteristic values, which
were determined in our laboratory through calibration. These characteristic values are
defined at the factory and stored in the calibrator as a protected function.
To be able to use a measuring insert, the relevant "Functionality of the calibrator" ( § 5.4)
must be selected.
IMPORTANT! Protected list entries!
The functions, test specimens and test tasks marked with the

3.3 Test tasks
Test tasks are containers for defined test conditions. They are helpful for recurring testing
processes, for standardizing test sequences and for generating measurement logs.
All the required settings and configurations for the calibration of a test specimen are compiled
in a test task. The parameters of the testing task are saved and linked to the selected
function and test specimen ( § 5.6).
The operation concept of the calibrator is based on pre-installed and self-defined test tasks.
They are a central component of the function and operation of the TCL-3M165E2.
The emphasis of the operating manual is on the use of test tasks during operation of the
calibrator.
The calibrator is shipped with functions, test samples and testing tasks defined in the factory,
in which the basic settings of the calibrator are stored. If desired, customer-specific test tasks
can also be pre-set.
These protected test tasks can be neither deleted nor edited. They serve as templates for
your own self-defined test tasks. They can be copied and can then be configured.
You can define your own test tasks for different test specimens or test sequences. These test
tasks are directly saved in the calibrator and can then be easily activated. This makes quick
access to recurring test tasks possible.
Upon switching on the calibrator, the first test task of the selection list is loaded automatically,
with the relevant parameters.
IMPORTANT! The function and test specimen are independent!
During the configuration of test tasks ( § 5.6) when selecting the function or the test
sample, you can switch to the respective expert mode for administration and
configuration.
 Note here that changes to existing functions and test specimens always apply to all
the test tasks linked to them.

4.3.3 Calibrator for surface temperature sensors
Type
TCL-3M165E2
Surface

A special surface insert is used for calibrating surface temperature sensors. This makes
calibration fast and easy.
The surface insert is hollow from the bottom and longer than
the adapter sleeve. For reference sensors, three boreholes
are located directly under the surface (1 x 3 mm •
1 x 3.1 mm • 1 x 4.5 mm / 1 x 0.12 in • 1 x 0.12 in •
1 x 0.18 in). Thus, the exact surface temperature of the
insert can be measured.
The two threaded boreholes in the border are for the
accompanying exchange tool.
Inserting:
 The surface insert is inserted into the metal block with
the aid of the exchange tool.
External reference sensor (optional):
 Align the surface insert so that the hole for the external
reference sensor is located at 12 o’clock.
Surface insert and
exchange tool
Removing and cleaning:
 Let the calibrator cool before you remove the surface insert.
 Pull the surface insert out of the metal block with the help of the exchange tool.
 Clean the surface insert and the metal block.
This prevents the surface insert from getting stuck in the metal block.
IMPORTANT NOTICE!
The calibration of surface temperature sensors is very difficult and not uncontroversial.
The temperature sensor, which are placed on the surface, conduct heat away from the
surface and thus produce a cold spot on the surface to be measured.
Using a multifunction calibrator, the calibration temperature is generated in a specially
constructed surface insert and measured directly under the surface with an external
reference thermometer.
The reference thermometer also determines the temperature of the cold spots by integrating
the temperature over the sensitive length of the reference thermometer and can therefore
offer a true temperature calibration of surface temperature test specimens.
The surface insert is constructed in such a way that the included external reference delivers
the best possible results because the depth of the boreholes is adapted to the sensitive
length. If you need to make your own external reference for a comparison calibration, ensure
that the sensitive length is known and that it is situated in the middle of the calibration surface

4.3.4 Micro bath calibrator
Type
TCL-3M165E2
Micro bath

CAUTION! Risk of injury - Wear safety goggles!
Calibration liquid can be ejected when working with the micro bath calibrator.
 Always wear safety goggles for the eyes when handling calibration liquids.
The micro bath is used for calibrating sensors with special shapes or dimensions. Direct
contact between the sensor and the calibration liquid ensures excellent heat transfer.
The calibration liquid is poured directly into the tank or into a tub insert ( p. 22).
The micro bath includes the transport cover, the work cover, the sensor cage, the magnetic
stirrer, the drain syringe, the magnetic lifter and as an accessory, the tub insert. The
individual components are described below.
Transport cover:
The transport cover serves for secure closing of the micro bath. It prevents spillage of the
calibration liquid during transport.
CAUTION! Safety valve!
The transport cover is equipped with a safety valve, which is activated
once the pressure reaches ~1.5 bar (~21.75 psi). This can result in hot
steam being released.
 Always unscrew the transport cover before putting the micro bath into service, in
order to avoid excessive pressure.
Work cover:
The work cover fulfils various tasks during the operation.
• It reduces the evaporation of the calibration liquid to a minimum.
• It reduces the cooling on the surface of the calibration liquid.
• It ensures stable positioning of the test specimens in the micro bath.
The work cover is screwed on to the micro bath and has five openings for
test specimens. The unused openings can be closed with suitable silicon
plugs.
Sensor cage and magnetic stirrer:
The sensor cage protects the magnetic stirrer. It prevents the sensors from
blocking the magnetic stirrer. The function of stirring is ensured by the
sensor cage.
The magnetic stirrer ensures a uniform temperature distribution in the
calibration liquid. The speed of the magnetic stirrer is set in Configuration
range ( § 5.2) or in the window "Configure Function" ( § 5.4.3 "Stirring
speed").
IMPORTANT! Limited Life Part!
The magnetic stirrer is a limited life part.
 Replace worn-out magnetic stirrers. ( § 8.1 "Maintenance").

Series TCL-3M165E2
Drain syringe and magnetic lifter:
The drain syringe is used for pumping out the calibration liquid from the tank of the micro
bath. The magnetic stirrer is removed with the help of the magnetic lifter.
Both the activities are required before another adapter sleeve or calibration insert is inserted
in the calibrator.
Tub insert (optional / accessories):
We recommend using a tub insert if you
•
•
frequently change between dry block, infrared, surface and micro
bath function.
frequently work with different calibration liquids.
The tub insert is placed into the tank with the help of the sleeve exchange
tool.
Just like the tank, the tub insert can be closed with the associated cover.
Both threaded covers are leakproof, so the calibration liquid can be left in
the tank or the tub insert during transport.
4.3.4.1 Notes on calibration liquid
Different calibration liquids supply varying calibration results due to their specific
characteristics. Adjustment to the respective calibration liquid has to be carried out by the
manufacturer.
In order to achieve the best possible accuracy of a micro bath, it has to be filled with a
suitable calibration liquid.
The calibration liquid is poured directly into the tank or a tub insert.
When using water as the calibration liquid:

Only use distilled water, otherwise excessive limescale and soiling will build up in the
tank.
When using silicone oil as the calibration liquid:

Wear safety goggles for the eyes without fail when working with silicone oil!

Use only the silicone oil recommended here.

Always read the safety data sheet supplied with the silicone oil before using it.

Always ensure adequate ventilation when working with silicone oil, since hazardous
substances can be released.

Spilled or leaked silicone oil results in an extreme danger of slipping. Clean the
affected ranges by suitable means.

Since silicone oil is hygroscopic, always use the associated transport cover to
close the tank or the tub insert after use.

4.3.4.2 Information on filling amounts
CAUTION! Risk of incorrect measurement or material damage!
Do not exceed the maximum fill level during operation!
• Above the maximum fill level the heat dissipation is too great, preventing compliance
with the specified tolerances.
• Overflow of the calibration liquid causes contamination and can damage the calibrator.
 Ensure that the maximum fill level is not exceeded during operation.
The fill level in the tank or tub insert rises as a result of
•
Thermal expansion
Calibration liquids expand to varying degrees as a
result of heating. The increase in fill level depends
on the calibration liquid that is used and the
reference temperature setting.
•
Displacement by sensors
The volume displaced by the sensors being
calibrated must be taken into account in the filling
amount.
•
Rise due to stirring
The rotation of the magnetic stirrer forms a
whirlpool in the liquid. This raises the fill level at
the wall.
Tank:
The maximum fill level in the tank is displayed by
the upper edge of the aluminum lining.
