The processing industry is going through changes and is affected by several industry trends. Beamex has conducted extensive market- and customer-related studies in the past years, interviewing instrument and calibration professionals. The results of these studies show new industry trends that require new demands on devices and systems used to perform and manage calibration measurements.
"This feedback was the starting point for our product development project a few years ago when we decided to develop a device that will be the next measurement industry benchmark," said Mr. Raimo Ahola, CEO of Beamex Group.
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. Automation 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.
"We are extremely proud of the new MC6; it is the end-result of the largest product development project in Beamex's nearly forty-year history," said Ahola
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 MC6 has a large 5.7 in. color touch-screen with a multilingual userinterface.
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.
The MC6 is one device with five different operational modes and you 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.
