The MC6 is a truly multifunctional field calibrator. When going out in the field it is so much easier to carry one device with you, instead of carrying several separate devices.
We think that carrying less is a better way.
The MC6 is also a documenting calibrator. When it is used in conjunction with Beamex calibration software (Beamex CMX or Beamex LOGiCAL) you will experience a fully paperless calibration process. With the MC6, there is no error prone writing of calibration results on paper, manual error calculation, or manually typing results into the software.
We think that going paperless is a better way for you.
What used to take three or four of us to do in the past, can be done by one, maybe two of us. Just the Beamex MC6, is like having another technician on staff.
Using the Beamex MC6 field calibrator and communicator for pressure calibrations has decreased the time it takes to conduct the calibration procedure itself in the field by over 80%.
A calibrator should have advanced functionality yet remain easy to use – that is a pretty challenging situation. As a solution for this, we created different user interface modes for different use cases. For example, if you only want to measure something quickly and easily, use the simple Meter mode. If you want to document your calibration, use the Documenting calibrator mode.
Meter mode is designed for the simple and easy measurement of signals. Oftentimes, you may need to measure something quickly and easily. Often a simple multi-meter is used for this purpose, as it is easy to use. Some multifunctional calibrators are too slow and difficult to use, so it is easier to just choose a simpler meter. Meter mode in MC6 is optimized for this type of simple metering.
Calibrator mode is designed for calibrating various process instruments. Oftentimes, you need to check and calibrate a certain process instrument/transmitter. Transmitters typically have an input and an output. So you either need to have two devices, or a device capable of doing two things simultaneously. Calibrator mode in MC6 is optimized for this type of use.
Documenting Calibrator mode, working together with calibration software, is designed for process instrument calibration and documentation of the results. In today’s process plant, calibrations often must be documented. Without a documenting calibrator, documentation must be done manually, which takes a lot of precious time and is prone to error. The documenting calibrator mode in MC6 is optimized for use as a documenting process calibrator.
The data logger is designed for logging various measurement results. There is often a need to measure signals for certain periods and to save the results in a memory for later analysis. This may be related to troubleshooting, surveillance, or calibration. The data logger mode in MC6 is optimized for this type of use.
Communicator Mode is designed to communicate with Fieldbus instruments. In today’s process plants, smart instrumentation is being used to an increasing degree. Therefore, engineers need to use communicators or configuration software. Most of this instrumentation is HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus or Profibus PA. The communicator mode in MC6 is optimized for this communication.
The settings mode allows you to edit the calibrator’s various settings to fit your needs.
When you use the Beamex MC6 family calibrators together with Beamex CMX calibration management software, you have a solution that further lowers the risk of ALCOA violations by identifying those using offline mobile devices by their electronic signature and by protecting the offline data against tampering.
