The SIM-1 SensorSimulator, from GHM Messtechnik, offers engineers working across all sectors of industry a quality handheld device with superior functionality supported by the latest available measurement technology.

“GHM Messtechnik is renowned for its quality measurement offerings, and the SIM-1 SensorSimulator manufactured by IMTRON, part of the GHM Messtechnik stable of companies, is a recognised supplier of measurement components and systems for industrial applications in development, manufacturing, and testing” said Jan Grobler, Managing Director of GHM Messtechnik SA.

“The SIM-1 SensorSimulator measures / simulates loop calibrations on PLC systems with great accuracy. Research and development has greatly enhanced the device’s measurement capability. It is compact and easy to operate, protected in a robust silicone case, and offers simulations of various sensors such as strain gauge, Pt100
and TC” said Grobler.

The GHM SensorSimulator issues various current and voltage signals. With additional return measurement of feed voltages / currents; the SIM-1 SensorSimulator can also provide optimal, true-to-the-original simulation of sensors like Pt100 and strain gauge sensors.

The SensorSimulator can be used to compare and check displays and measuring transducers. The device has a transmitter and measuring function for voltages and currents. It has a graphic LCD, compact dimensions and is battery-powered.

“We believe that the introduction of the SIM-1 SensorSimulator to the South African market raises the benchmark in high accuracy measurement testing devices” concluded Grobler.

IMTRON Messtechnik GmbH was founded in 1994 and applications are in the processing and acquisition of physical parameters like pressure, temperature, distance, angle, current, voltage and torque. They also supply high accuracy professional test bench measurement analytical devices.

GHM Messtechnik South Africa is part of GHM Messtechnik GmbH, an amalgamation of globally renowned companies comprising: Greisinger Electronic, Honsberg Instruments, Martens Elektronik, Imtron, T & A (Telemetry & Automation) and Delta Ohm (Italy).
