The MC6 is a multi functional field communicator and calibrator in one device. When troubleshooting and calibrating in the field, it is much easier to carry one device with you, instead of carrying several separate devices.
The Beamex MC6 is an advanced, high-accuracy field process communicator and calibrator. It offers calibration capabilities for pressure, temperature and various electrical signals.
There is a multi-bus field communicator into the calibrator. It includes HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 and Profibus PA communication all in one device, so that you can choose the ones that you need. There’s no longer a reason to carry a separate communicator with you when you go to do calibration work.
The MC6 is a truly multifunctional field process calibrator and communicator.
The MC6 is easy and fun to use. A large backlit 5.7-inch color touch screen can be used with bare fingers, with gloved fingers or with a stylus. An intuitive user interface with multiple user interface languages is included. The connection diagrams guide you to make the correct connections. There are even multiple user interface modes for different applications.
The MC6 can communicate with process instruments such as thermocouples, RTD’s, pressure transmitters, temperature transmitters and multivariable transmitters.
The MC6 is also a documenting calibrator with an accredited calibration certificate that gives you the capability to communicate and calibrate process instrumentation in a very reliable way. If you need to trim or adjust a device, simply switch to calibrator mode to make the measurements required.
When it is used in conjunction with Beamex calibration software, 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.
User Interface Modules
A process device communicator and calibrator should have advanced functionality yet remain easy to use. As a solution for this, we created different user interface modes for different use cases. For example, if you only want to configure something quickly and easily, use the Communicator mode. If you want to document your calibration, use the Documenting calibrator mode.
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.
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.
The settings mode allows you to edit the calibrator’s various settings to fit your needs.
