The CAL3K works in MJ/Kg=KJ/g. All its internal calculations are performed in Kj/g. However, the display units and the exported CV units can be changed to CAL or BTU as follows:
|START OF COMMAND, UNIT OF MEASURE|
|OROR||VALUE - CAL OR MJ OR BTU|
The CAL3K measures the temperature in CELSIUS. Sorry, it can’t be changed.
The unit of Calorific Value (CV) is displayed when read from the keyboard but is not indicated in theLIMS output or during printing. The PC can get the unit of measure from the System definition (SYSDEF).
UNITS, CONVERSIONS AND CALCULATIONS
This section gives a short summary of related mathematical info. 3.6MJ = 3410BTU = 1KWh = 860Kcal. 1J = 1 Watt second = 1Ws. Point to ponder: 0.5g Benzoic Acid (BA) releases 26.454*0.5=13.227KJ. This means it releases 13227 Ws. This means...Learn More

The access to the keyboard commands is restricted by a password. The password can be changed from a PC connected to the USB port and the CAL3K management software. Once the password is entered in the CAL3K_AP the restriction is lifted for a specific time.Learn More
The system can display your calorific value result in all 3 units of measure. This option changes the units of measure in which the results are displayed. The Calorimeter always calculates in KJ/g but converts the result to the chosen unit of measurement for the display and transmission to the ports.Learn More
