PIETARSAARI, Finland, Feb. 22, 2012 /CNW/ - The processing industry is going through significant changes and is affected by several industry trends. Instrumentation and calibration technicians are required to carry more and more measurement equipment on the field, there is demand for increasingly accurate and stable measurements due to more accurate transmitter technology and there is an increased demand for measurement equipment that automates procedures and guides the user on the field. Furthermore, plants are looking to decrease measurement equipment lifecycle costs by replacing several individual measurement devices with multifunctional devices.
The new Beamex MC6 Advanced Field Calibrator and Communicator is a solution to the new process industry requirements. The MC6 is an advanced, high-accuracy field calibrator and communicator. It offers calibration capabilities for pressure, temperature and various electrical signals. The MC6 also contains a full fieldbus communicator for HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus and Profibus PA instruments. The usability and ease-of-use are what really makes the MC6 unique. It has a large 5.7" color touch-screen with a multilingual user-interface. The robust IP65-rated dust- and water-proof casing, ergonomic design and light weight make it an ideal measurement device for field use in various industries, such as the pharmaceutical, energy, oil and gas, food and beverage, service as well as the petrochemical and chemical industries.
The MC6 is one device with five different operational modes, which means that it is fast and easy to use, and technicians can carry less equipment in the field. The operation modes include Meter, Calibrator, Documenting Calibrator, Data Logger and Fieldbus Communicator. In addition, the MC6 communicates with Beamex CMX Calibration Software, enabling fully automated and paperless calibration and documentation. The MC6 is more than a calibrator.
Beamex is also introducing a new version of the CMX Calibration Software that, together with the MC6, offers new and improved possibilities for paperless calibration management.
