The impossible made possible:
combining advanced functionality
with ease-of-use
Beamex 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 among the main features of the
MC6. 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 you can carry
less equipment in the field. The operation modes are: 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.
In conclusion, the MC6 is more than a calibrator.

Accredited calibration certificate as standard
Each MC6 is delivered with a traceable, accredited calibration
certificate as standard. The certificate includes calibration and
uncertainty data from the calibration laboratory. The calibration
laboratory’s Scope of Accreditation can be found on Beamex’s
website (www.beamex.com).
Summary of accuracy figures
The MC6 has specifications for short-term accuracy and for
1-year total uncertainty. Brief summary of the accuracy figures:
• Pressure accuracy starting from
±(0.005 % FS + 0.0125 % of reading).
• Temperature − RTD temperature measurement accuracy
starting from ±0.011 °C.
23
• Electric – current measurement accuracy starting from
±(0.75 µA + 0.0075 % of reading).
Designed for field use
User-friendly interface
The MC6 has a large 5.7" color touch-screen with high resolution
and an effective adjustable backlight. In addition, the MC6 has a
membrane keypad. A soft number keypad and alphabetical
QWERTY text keypad will appear whenever necessary for easy
number/text entries.
Robust, lightweight and ergonomic design
The MC6 has rechargeable lithium-ion polymer batteries, which
are durable and charge up quickly. The user interface keeps you
up to date on the remaining operation time in hours and minutes,
making it easy to follow how long the battery will last. Once the
unit is switched on, it is ready to use in just a few seconds. The
case is ergonomic and water-/dust-proof (IP65). There are two
types of cases available: a slim case when internal pressure
modules are not needed and an extended version, which
provides room for the internal pressure modules.

USER-INTERFACE MODES
1. Meter
The meter mode is designed for
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 may be too slow and
difficult to use, so it is easier to just
choose the simpler meter. The meter
mode in MC6 is optimized for this
type of simple and easy metering.
24
2. Calibrator
The 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. The
calibrator mode in MC6 is optimized
for this type of use.
3. Data logger
The data logger is designed for
logging various measurement
results. Often in industry, there is a
need to measure signals for shorter
or longer 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.
FIELD EQUIPMENT | BEAMEX MC6
4. Documenting calibrator
The documenting calibrator mode is
designed for the process instrument
calibration and documenting of the
calibration results. In today’s process plant,
calibrations often have to 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.
25
5. Communicator
The 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 communicator use.
6. Settings
The settings mode allows you to edit the
calibrator’s various settings.

26
Full multi-bus field communicator
for HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus
and Profibus PA instruments
Communicator
The communicator mode is a full multi-bus communicator for
HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus and Profibus PA instruments. All
of the communicator electronics for all protocols are built into the
MC6, including internal loop power supply with various required
impedances for different buses, which means there is no need to
use any external loop supply or resistors.
Multi-bus communicator
The MC6 communicator can be used with all types of fieldbus
instruments, not only pressure and temperature transmitters. All
3 protocols can be simultaneously installed into an MC6, and
therefore the very same device can be used as a HART,
FOUNDATION Fieldbus and Profibus PA communicator. With the
MC6, you can access all parameters in all blocks of a fieldbus
instrument. Its memory stores device descriptions for the
fieldbus instruments. When new instruments are introduced on
the market, new device description files will be made available
and can be easily downloaded into the memory.

SUMMARY
Beamex MC6
ADVANCED FIELD CALIBRATOR AND COMMUNICATOR
Beamex MC6 is an advanced, high-accuracy field calibrator
and communicator. It offers calibration capabilities for
38
pressure, temperature and various electrical signals. The
MC6 also contains a full fieldbus communicator for HART,
FOUNDATION Fieldbus and Profibus PA instruments. The
MC6 is one device with five different operational modes,
which means that it is fast and easy to use, and you can
carry less equipment in the field. The operation modes are:
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.
Guided procedures
The MC6 provides automated, guided procedures. For instance,
whenever a certain measurement or generation is selected, the user
interface shows where to make the connections.
Paperless calibration
The MC6 communicates with calibration software enabling fully
automated and paperless calibration and documentation.
One device, five operational modes
How is it possible to combine advanced functionality with ease-ofuse? In the MC6 this has been achieved through integrating various
operational modes into one device. This means that you only need to
learn how to use one device.
Communicator
Smart instrumentation is becoming more and more common in today’s
process plants. The most widely used smart instrument protocols are
HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus and Profibus PA. Therefore, in addition to
a calibrator, an engineer often needs to use a field communicator. The
MC6 combines these two; it’s a calibrator and a communicator.
