What Power Generation Maintenance Professionals Say

Time is of the essence during an outage and the Beamex Integrated Calibration Solution allows technicians to maximize the amount of work accomplished in the shortest amount of time, while effectively performing vital tasks and managing workflows.

With this software integration project, we were able to realize a significant return on investment during the first unit overhaul. It’s unusual, since ROI on software projects is usually nonexistent at first.

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.

Outage management

In an ideal world, power plants would have enough dedicated, skilled metrology experts who could concentrate solely on performing calibration work. However, the reality is that most of us are not living in this ideal world.

One common challenge many power plants face today is the lack of experts with deep subject matter expertise in calibration-related metrology. Typically there are only limited resources that can be deployed for calibration work during an outage as there is a long list of other tasks that the same workforce is required to do. Calibration is just a small part of most workers' overall responsibilities.

As such, it is important to use a modern automated calibration solution that helps make calibration work more effective in order to perform the calibrations faster and with fewer resources.

Manage your calibrations

Configurable software, like the Beamex CMX calibration software can help you manage, share and connect your data with CMMS and ERP systems to deliver lean processes and workflows. Advanced functionality like automatic certificate generation, electronic signature and historical trend analysis, helps you prepare you for audits and gives you the information you need to make the best decisions for important considerations, like calibration intervals.


For the mobile worker

The traditional calibration maintenance technician or engineer must carry multiple devices into the field to complete their work. With tools like the Beamex MC6 family of portable multifunction calibrators and the Beamex bMobile application featuring tablet-based data entry for tests and inspections, the ability to perform work with singular tools is possible. They offer the opportunity to also document and sign calibration results in the field. The Beamex mobile security plus technology ensures these portable devices deliver the highest levels of data integrity, well in line with regulations such as those from the EPA.


Your partner for engagement

Sometimes more important than your choice of calibration software or hardware is selecting a partner for the engagement, configuration, and delivery of the solution to your enterprise. The Beamex global professional services team uses our tried and tested project approach which includes project definition and scoping, specification, data migration and solution configuration together with solution validation as well as global site roll out support.


As a power maintenance professional, if you are:

• Burdened with manually updating asset management systems to close calibration work orders
• Hindered with linking audit-critical calibration report data to asset records
• Challenged with efficient planning or organizing of calibration routes for outages
• Troubled by schedule and safety risks with labor-intensive instrument calibration activity

Please contact us. We will advise you on the best solution for your needs.
