Beamex upgrades its MC6 calibrator family with increased computing power and enhanced HART functionality.
Beamex is pleased to announce the launch of an upgrade to its HART-enabled MC6 calibrator and communicator family. The upgrade introduces a new firmware version, an upgraded processor board, and enhanced HART functionality.
The firmware upgrade includes an upgraded HART DD interpreter to enhance support for existing HART devices and ensure seamless compatibility with future devices. The new firmware can be installed free of charge on any existing MC6 family product with the optional HART communicator functionality. This functionality can be added easily thanks to the MC6’s modular design.
The upgraded main processor board increases the MC6’s computing power and memory capacity, ensuring support for future advanced functionalities. The new main processor board will be gradually introduced for all products in the MC6 family with the exception of the MC6-Ex, which already includes the upgraded board.
Customers with older MC6-family products can also take advantage of an upgrade package from Beamex to replace the main processor board with the upgraded version, allowing them to benefit from the new functionalities it introduces.
This upgrade further strengthens the position of the Beamex MC6 as the leading HART-enabled process calibrator and communicator on the market today.
The MC6 product family includes several models:
- MC6 advanced field calibrator and communicator,
- MC6-Ex intrinsically safe field calibrator and communicator,
- MC6-WS advanced workshop calibrator and communicator,
- MC6-T multifunction temperature calibrator and communicator.
