Traditional paper-based
systems
Business benefits
of paperless calibration
While using a manual, paper-based system requires little or no
investment in new technology or IT systems, it is extremely
labor-intensive and means that historical trend analysis of
calibration results becomes very difficult. In addition, accessing
calibration data quickly is not easy. Paper systems are time
consuming, they soak up lots of company resources and manual
(typing) errors are commonplace. Dual effort and the re-keying of
calibration data into multiple databases become significant costs
to the business.
The business benefits of a paperless calibration system are
significant. The entire calibration process – from initial recording
of calibration data to historical trend analysis – will take less time,
virtually eliminating mistakes and manual errors. In turn, this
means that operators, engineers and management will have more
confidence in the data, particularly when it comes to plant audits.
In addition, this greater confidence in calibration data leads to a
better understanding and analysis of business performance and
KPIs (particularly if the calibration software is integrated into other
business IT systems such as a CMMS) leading to improved
processes, increased efficiency and reduced plant downtime.

CALIBRATION
IN HAZARDOUS
AREAS
12
There are industrial environments where
calibrations should not only be made
accurately and efficiently, but also safely.
When safety becomes a top priority in
calibration, intrinsically safe calibrators are
required. Intrinsic safety (IS) is a protection
technique for the safe operation of electronic
equipment in explosive environments. The
idea behind intrinsic safety is to be assured
that the available electrical and thermal
energy in the system is always low enough
that ignition of the hazardous atmosphere
cannot occur.

Intrinsically safe calibrators
An intrinsically safe calibrator is designed to be incapable of
causing ignition in the surrounding environment with flammable
materials, such as gases, mists, vapors or combustible dust.
Intrinsically safe calibrators are also often referred to being
“Ex calibrators” or “calibrators for Ex Areas”.
Where is intrinsically safe calibration
required
Many industries require intrinsically safe calibration equipment.
Intrinsically safe calibrators are designed for potentially explosive
environments, such as oil refineries, rigs and processing plants,
gas pipelines and distribution centres, petrochemical and
chemical plants, as well as pharmaceutical plants. Basically, any
potentially explosive industrial environment can benefit from
using intrinsically safe calibrators.
Benefits of using intrinsically safe
calibrators
Safest possible technique. Intrinsically safe calibrators are safe
for employees, as they can be safely used in environments where
the risk of an explosion exists. In addition, intrinsically safe
calibrators are the only technique permitted for Zone 0
environments (explosive gas and air mixture is continuously
present or present for a long time).
Performance and functionality. Multifunctional intrinsically safe
calibrators provide the functionality and performance of regular
industrial calibration devices, but in a safe way. They can be
used for the calibration of pressure, temperature and electrical
signals. A documenting intrinsically safe calibrator, such as the
Beamex MC5-IS, provides additional efficiency improvements
with its seamless communication with calibration software. This
eliminates the need of manual recording of calibration data and
improves the quality and productivity of the entire calibration
process.

Fieldbus is becoming more and more

Fieldbus transmitters
must also be calibrated
Beamex’s fieldbus
calibration solution
Are you aware that fieldbus transmitters need to be calibrated
just like any other transmitters? The main difference between
fieldbus and conventional transmitters is that the output
signal is a fully digital fieldbus signal. Although modern
fieldbus transmitters have been improved compared to older
transmitter models, it does not eliminate the need for
calibration. Major time-savings can also be achieved by using
the MC6 HART and/or Fieldbus functionality to enter
transmitter data into the MC6 memory where the data can
then be populated to the CMX calibration software instead of
manually entering the data into the calibration database.
There are no such instruments, neither digital nor
analog, that would remain stable indefinitely. Therefore, the
“digitality” of an instrument does not mean that calibration
is unnecessary. There are also many other reasons, such
as quality systems and regulations, that make the periodic
calibrations compulsory.
Beamex offers two products for calibrating fieldbus
transmitters: MC5-IS (intrinsically safe) and MC6.
The MC6 is a one-of-a-kind measurement device being an
advanced field calibrator and full multi-bus communicator.
The MC5-IS and MC6 can be used to calibrate HART,
FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 and Profibus PA instruments.

COMMISSIONING
16
Successful commissioning of process
instrumentation is an essential requirement
for ideal plant performance. A plant,
or any defined part of a plant, is ready
for commissioning when the plant has
achieved mechanical completion. Plant
commissioning involves activities such
as checking to ensure plant construction
is complete and complies with the
documented design or approved (authorized
and recorded) design changes. In general,
commissioning activities are those
associated with preparing or operating the
plant or any part of the plant prior to the
initial start-up and are frequently undertaken
by the owner or joint owner/contractor team.

Calibration and commissioning of instrumentation
New process instrumentation is typically configured and
calibrated by the manufacturer prior to installation. However,
instruments are often recalibrated upon arrival at the site,
especially if there has been obvious damage in transit or storage.
There are also many other reasons why instruments should be
calibrated during the commissioning phase before start-up.
Assuring transmitter quality
First of all, the fact that an instrument or transmitter is new does
not automatically mean that it is within required specifications.
Calibrating a new instrument before installing or using it is a
quality assurance task. You can check the overall quality of the
instrument to see if it is defective and to ensure it has the correct,
specified settings.
Reconfiguring a transmitter
The new uninstalled instrument or transmitter may have the
correct, specified settings. However, it is possible that the
original planned settings are not valid anymore and they need
to be changed. By calibrating an instrument you can check the
settings of the instrument. After you have performed this task, it
is possible to reconfigure the transmitter, when the initial planned
specifications have been changed. Calibration is therefore
a key element in the process of reconfiguring an uninstalled
transmitter.
Monitoring the quality and stability of a transmitter
When calibration procedures are performed for an uninstalled
instrument, the calibration serves also future purposes. By
calibrating the transmitter before installation and on a regular
basis thereafter, it is possible to monitor the stability of the
transmitter.
Entering the necessary transmitter data
into a calibration database
By calibrating an instrument before installation it is possible
to enter all the necessary instrument data into the calibration
database, as well as to monitor the instrument’s stability, as was
explained in the previous paragraph. The transmitter information
is critical in defining the quality of the instrument and for planning
the optimal calibration interval of the instrument.

BEAMEX MC6 | FIELD EQUIPMENT
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.
BEAMEX MC6 | FIELD EQUIPMENT
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.

2)
Maximum number of internal pressure modules is 3 gauge/differential pressure modules and one barometric (PB) module in the extended case. The flat case has room
for internal barometric module only. Both cases have connection for external pressure modules.
External pressure modules are also compatible with Beamex MC2, MC4 and MC5 family calibrators.

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.

MC4: a compact, easy-to-use
documenting process calibrator
The Beamex MC4 is a documenting process calibrator.
Instrument data can be sent from a computer to the MC4
and calibration results can be uploaded from the MC4 to
a computer containing the Beamex CMX calibration software.
Being a multifunctional calibrator, the MC4 is suitable for
calibrating various process parameters, such as pressure,
temperature and electrical signals.
High accuracy is one of the important features of the MC4. A
standard feature of the MC4 includes an accredited calibration
certificate as proof of its accuracy. The correction coefficients
of a PRT probe can be programmed into the MC4 to further improve temperature accuracy. The large graphical display, menubased multilingual user interface and full numerical keyboard
make it easy to use.
41
Main features of MC4
Communication with calibration software
Using the MC4 together with a calibration software provides you
with a complete documenting calibration system that produces
calibration certificates automatically.
All-in-one functionality
The MC4 is a versatile calibrator with many different functions.
There’s no need to take several different measurement devices
to the field – the MC4 does the job.
Accuracy guaranteed
The MC4 is a highly accurate process calibrator. As a proof of
this, each calibrator is delivered with a traceable, accredited
calibration certificate.
Calibration is quick and easy
The large graphical display, menu-based multilingual user
interface and full numerical keyboard make the MC4 quick
and easy to use.

Specification
Calibration mode
The MC4 includes a versatile calibration mode making it easy and effective to create and calibrate process instruments.
PRT sensor coefficients
The MC4 compensates sensor errors because it includes the possibility to record PRT sensor correction coefficients.
Error % display
When calibrating a transmitter, its output may be displayed in an error % unit rather than in an engineering unit.
Error display in
input or output units
When calibrating a transmitter, the transmitter’s output may be displayed as an error in input or output engineering units.
% display
Any measurement or generation may be presented in percentages within the user-programmable range.
Scaling
A versatile, programmable scaling function allows the user to scale any measured or generated unit into any custom unit.
Scaling also includes a rooting transfer function for flow applications as well as custom transfer functions.
User setups
The unit has a large number of user-configurable setups that make it easy to save and quickly recall a desired configuration.
Leak testing
The leak test function indicates pressure drops and leak rates during the user-programmable period.
Step and ramp
The unit includes a versatile and programmable automatic step and ramp function as well as a manual step function.
Programmable alarms
An alarm based on a measurement value or rate of change can be programmed into the device.
Damping
Programmable damping allows the user to select different filters for measurements.
Bar graph
The bar graph allows the user to display a measurement or generation as an analogue bar, including programmable starting
and ending points.
Difference
Difference measurement allows the user to measure the difference between two pressure modules.
Deviation
The deviation function allows the user to display a deviation between a given reference value and the actual measurement.
Redundancy
Redundancy measurement allows the user to measure the same pressure using two pressure modules (internal and external)
simultaneously. The unit’s alarm sounds if the readings excessively differ from each other.
Additional information
The unit also allows the user to view additional information such as min, max, rate, internal temperature, thermocouple’s
thermovoltage, RTD sensor’s resistance etc.

MC5-IS: designed for use in potentially
explosive environments
The ATEX- and IECEx- certified MC5-IS is designed for use in
potentially explosive environments, such as offshore platforms,
oil refineries, chemical and petrochemical plants where
inflammable gases may be present. There is probably no other
intrinsically safe calibrator that can outperform the MC5-IS in
terms of functionality. It is a documenting, multifunction
calibrator that has calibration capabilities for pressure,
temperature, electrical and frequency signals. Its modular design
allows configuration based on your specific needs.
65
Main features of MC5-IS
Safe and robust field calibrator
The ATEX- and IECEx- certified, IP65-rated MC5-IS with impact
protectors and membrane keyboard is robust and made for
tough use.
Accuracy guaranteed
The MC5-IS is a highly accurate all-in-one calibrator. It is
delivered with a traceable, accredited calibration certificate.
Communication with calibration software
Using the MC5-IS together with calibration software provides
you with a complete documenting calibration system that
produces calibration certificates automatically.
Unmatched functionality
No other intrinsically safe calibrator can outperform the MC5-IS
in terms of functionality.
BEAMEX MC5-IS | FIELD EQUIPMENT
Additional features
Accuracy guaranteed
The MC5-IS is among the most accurate process calibrators
available. As proof of this, each MC5-IS calibrator is delivered
with a traceable, accredited calibration certificate.
Made for tough use
The IP65-rated robust casing, along with integrated impact
protectors, makes the MC5-IS an ideal calibrator for use in wet
and dusty environments subject to wide temperature variations.
Modularity means versatility
The MC5-IS is an extremely versatile calibrator with many
different functions. The modular construction of the MC5-IS
provides flexibility for the user. For instance, the MC5-IS can be
ordered as a pressure or temperature stand-alone calibrator, and
then later expand it into a data-logging, documenting
multifunction calibrator.
66
Communication with calibration software
Using the MC5-IS together with calibration software provides
you with a complete documenting calibration system that
produces calibration certificates automatically. The benefits of
the system include automated calibration procedures and
paperless calibration management.
Calibrate safely
The MC5-IS is an intrinsically safe, ATEX- certified (EEx ia IIC T4
and ATEX directive II 1 G) multifunction calibrator. It is designed
for use in potentially explosive environments, such as offshore
platforms, oil refineries, chemical and petrochemical plants
where inflammable gases may be present.
Fieldbus instruments must also be calibrated
Fieldbus installations are growing rapidly worldwide. Beamex
is the first company in the world to answer to this demand. We
have introduced the MC5-IS fieldbus calibrator, which provides
capability for calibrating Foundation Fieldbus H1 or Profibus PA
transmitters. It offers the safest possible way to calibrate fieldbus
transmitters.

To improve uncertainty with PRT (platinum RTD) sensors, the MC5-IS includes a standard possibility that allows you to create customized PRT sensors using the
Callendar van Dusen correction coefficients. The easy-to-use Beamex PRT Tool PC software is used to create the sensor and to send it to the MC5-IS. Up to 100
customized PRT sensors can be stored in MC5-IS at one time.
This function may be also used to create new, non-supported PRT sensors in the MC5-IS. Both measurement and simulation can be done with the customized sensors.

METROLOGY TEMPERATURE BLOCK

Portable temperature dry block delivering bath-level
accuracy for industrial applications
Highly accurate
temperature
dry block
88
Portable temperature dry block delivering
bath-level accuracy for industrial
applications
The Beamex metrology temperature block (MB) is a user
friendly and highly accurate temperature dry block. It delivers
bath-level accuracy in a convenient dry block with temperature
ranges from −45 °C … +700 °C. It enables you to take
laboratory-level accuracy with you out into the field.
Main features of MB
High accuracy and stability
89
With a conventional dry block, you typically needed an external reference
sensor if you wanted better accuracy. The Beamex MB has accurate internal
temperature measurement and display accuracy up to ±0.1°C, so you can get
high accuracy even without an external reference sensor. With the unique
temperature control techniques the Beamex® MB has excellent stability up to
±0.005 °C. This kind of stability has usually been found only in baths, not in dry
blocks.
Built-in high-accuracy reference input
In order to receive the best accuracy from the MB, there is a possibility to
connect an external reference sensor into the reference sensor connection (R
model). This eliminates the need for a separate reference thermometer. The
reference sensor measurement is accurate up to ±0.006 °C. ITS-90 or CVD
coefficients can be used to compensate any sensor errors.
Axial uniformity
With the unique dual zone control and extended well depth, the Beamex MB has
an excellent axial uniformity up to ±0.02 °C.
Radial uniformity
Radial uniformity is the temperature difference between the holes in the insert. It
is naturally crucial that the reference sensor and the sensor being tested are at
the same temperature. The Beamex MB offers radial uniformity up to ±0.01 °C.
Immersion Depth
The Beamex MB series provides immersion depth up to 203 mm (160 mm in
MB140), which, together with the control techniques, provides more stable
calibration. Moreover, a deeper immersion depth reduces the stem conduction
error (heat loss into the atmosphere), especially in higher temperatures.
Loading
With the extended well depth and the dual zone temperature control feature, the
Beamex MB can correct the effect of loading and provides loading
specifications up to ±0.005 °C.

The Beamex FB is an easily portable unit that also provides excellent
calibration accuracy. The display accuracy is up to ±0.2 °C and its control
technology provides great stability up to ±0.01 °C. The dual zone
controlled block provides excellent axial uniformity up to ±0.04 °C and
radial uniformity up to ±0.01 °C.
Smart reference sensors
The Beamex FB has an internal reference thermometer (in R models),
which enables connections to the Beamex smart reference sensors.
These sensors have a memory that contains all of the sensor correction
data. This enables the use of the reference sensor as a real plug-and-play.
Accredited calibration
Each Beamex FB field temperature block is delivered with an accredited
calibration certificate.
Usability
The large LCD display, function keys and multilingual, menu-based user
interface makes the Beamex FB easy to use. A graphic and audible
stability indicator lets you know when a block is stable. The HOT warning
light indicates when the block is hot (over +50 °C). It blinks as long as the
block is too hot to touch, even when the unit is switched off or when the
mains cable is disconnected.
Part of the Beamex ICS integrated calibration solution
The communication port enables communication with selected Beamex
MC calibrators for automation calibration and documentation, making the
Beamex FB products part of the Beamex ICS integrated calibration
solution. Combined with the Beamex MC6 calibrator, loop calibrations are

Increased usability with EXT modules
The Beamex EXT external pressure modules introduce new configuration possibilities and
add flexibility, as it is possible to calibrate more pressure ranges with the same calibrator.
This way, the Beamex calibration equipment meets your needs even better. Beamex offers
a wide range of external pressure modules – from vacuum to 1000 bar / 14 500 psi.
External pressure modules are compatible with Beamex MC6, MC5, MC4, MC2 MC5-IS,
MC2-IS and MC5P calibrators.
