Unmatched accuracy

Today’s process instrumentation is becoming more and more accurate. Therefore, calibration equipment must also have improved accuracy. When Beamex develops new measurement equipment, it makes no compromises in terms of accuracy – it must be best-in-class. The MC6 makes no exceptions. Accuracy is one of the main features of the MC6.

It is among the most accurate, advanced field calibrators available on the market.

Accuracy that tolerates demanding conditions

Field calibrators and communicators must tolerate demanding environmental conditions, such as cold or warm weather, moisture and dust. The MC6 is designed to handle demanding and variable environmental conditions. All of the pressure, electrical and temperature ranges are temperature compensated, and therefore the accuracy of the calibrator is not jeopardized when used in given types of extreme environments.

Accredited calibration certificate as standard

Every MC6 calibrator is calibrated in the Beamex accredited laboratory before delivery. As proof of how accurate it is, 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.

• Electric - Current measurement accuracy starting from

±(0.75 µA + 0.0075% of reading).

Usability

Usability

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. The buttons on the touch-screen have been designed large enough to use with bare fingers, so there is no need for a stylus – it can even be used with gloved hands! In addition, the MC6 has a membrane keypad. The multi-lingual user interface has been divided into different operational modes. A soft number keypad and alphabetical QWERTY text keypad will appear whenever necessary for easy number/text entries.

Automated procedures

Whenever a certain measurement or generation is selected, the user interface shows where to make the connections, which allows you to use a device with several connections. The MC6 is also a documenting calibrator and it communicates with the Beamex

®

CMX Calibration Software enabling fully automated and paperless calibration data management. This makes the calibration and documenting of calibration results automatic and much easier. Since the

MC6 is a measurement device that replaces several individual devices, there’s no need to carry several units in the field.

What’s more, the MC6 is also a fieldbus communicator, and therefore there is no need to carry an additional communicator.

Robust, lightweight and ergonomic design

The MC6 has the latest, 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. The wrist strap makes it easy to hold the device in your hand, while the neck strap makes it easy to carry and use the device.

User-interface modes

The MC6 is a unique measurement device, as it combines advanced functionality with ease-of-use. How is it possible to combine these two features? The solution is that the MC6 contains various operational modes all in one device, each of which is optimized for different uses. The operational modes are Meter, Calibrator, Documenting Calibrator, Communicator and Data Logger.

User-interface modes

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.

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 trouble-shooting, surveillance or calibration. The Data Logger mode in MC6 is optimized for this type of use.

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.

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.

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.

Settings

The Settings mode allows you to edit the calibrator’s various settings.

Versatility

Versatile functionality beyond traditional calibration applications

The MC6 is an advanced field calibrator and communicator, which replaces several measurement devices. It offers extremely versatile and multifunctional calibration capability for pressure, temperature and various electrical signals.

It also includes a full Fieldbus communicator for HART,

FOUNDATION Fieldbus and Profibus PA instruments.

MC6 as a pressure calibrator

The MC6 can come with as many as 4 internal pressure modules (3 standard modules + a barometric module). There is also a connection for external pressure modules. All of the internal and external pressure modules up to 6 bar (90 psi) come with an internal returning relief valve that protects the module from accidental overpressure. Most of the pressure modules have a compound range, and therefore they can measure from full vacuum up to the module range. When a unit is equipped with the barometric module, all other modules can be used for measuring absolute pressure. This means that there is no need to purchase separate absolute and gauge pressure modules. This makes it more practical to use and saves money. The MC6 can communicate with Beamex

®

Automatic Pressure Controller POC6 enabling fully automatic calibration of pressure instruments.

MC6 as a temperature calibrator

The MC6 has two RTD channels, and therefore it is able to measure two RTD sensors simultaneously with great accuracy. You can program sensor correction coefficients into the MC6 if you need to compensate sensor error. It also has two thermocouple channels, so it can accurately measure two thermocouples simultaneously, and it has automatic internal compensation of the reference (cold) junction. Using external or manual reference junction compensation is also possible.

One thermocouple channel has a unique and very versatile connection block supporting the use of plain thermocouple wires, or any type of thermocouple connector. The MC6 supports a large number RTD and thermocouple sensors as standard, and there are several additional sensors available as optional sensors. The MC6 can communicate with temperature controllers (Dry Blocks) enabling fully automatic calibration of temperature sensors or temperature instruments with temperature sensor.

Field Communicator

Field Communicator

Full multi-bus field communicator for

HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus and Profibus

PA instruments

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.

Communicator

The Communicator mode is a full multi-bus communicator for

HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus and Profibus PA instruments.

Therefore, it eliminates the need to carry a separate communicator with you. 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. The connections are extremely easy to make - just connect two leads from the MC6 to the instrument.

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. For example, the MC6 DD library supports approximately 1,000 different Device Descriptions for the

HART protocol.

Communicator and Calibrator

The MC6 is not only a communicator; it is also a multifunctional calibrator, which allows you to make traceable metrological calibration and trimming for Fieldbus instruments.

What’s more, the Fieldbus parameters can be configured, the variables logged into the Data Logger mode or measured in the Calibrator mode and calibrated and documented in the

Documenting Calibrator mode.

Seamless Integration.

Automate calibration procedures for paperless calibration management

According to some studies, instrument technicians use up to

50 % of their time doing paperwork, i.e. preparing calibration instructions, making notes of calibration results in the field and documenting and archiving calibration results.

All of the above tasks are extremely important and necessary, but doing them in the “Beamex way”, with seamlessly communicating documenting calibrators and calibration software, remarkably improves the quality, efficiency and accuracy of the entire calibration process and saves costs compared to traditional pen and paper systems or

“do-it-yourself” computer databases. The Beamex

®

MC6 communicates with Beamex
