MC2 series: three different hand-held
calibrators for field use
Practicality in calibration. The Beamex MC2 series includes
three different hand-held calibrators for field use: the MC2
temperature/electrical calibrator and the MC2 multifunction
calibrator. The MC2 is a compact and easy-to-use hand-held
calibrator. It has a large graphical display, a menu-based
interface and a full numerical keyboard. The MC2 represents
the high, uncompromised quality standards of Beamex
calibration equipment.
53
The main features of MC2
Compact and user-friendly
The MC2 is a compact, lightweight portable calibrator with large
graphical display, multilingual interface and full numerical
keyboard. Calibration is quick and simple.
Accuracy guaranteed
The MC2 is delivered with a traceable, accredited calibration
certificate.
Safe and robust field calibrator
The MC2 with impact protectors and membrane keyboard
is robust and made for tough use.
Wide range of configuration possibilities
The MC2 provides a number of configuration possibilities,
such as internal and external pressure modules.

1) Uncertainty includes reference standard uncertainty, hysteresis, non-linearity, repeatability and typical long-term stability for the mentioned period (k=2).
2) The internal pressure module’s range may also be displayed in absolute pressure if a barometric module is used.
3) The MC2 calibrator can hold one internal pressure module and the barometric option.
All external pressure modules (EXT) are also compatible with Beamex MC4, MC5, MC5P and MC6 calibrators.
