Beamex Introduces The World's First FieldBus Calibrator
Fieldbus installations are growing rapidly worldwide. The reasons are extremely clear-fieldbus systems increase efficiency and cost savings by lowering commissioning costs and by delivering better and more detailed information to support maintenance operations. The fieldbus market itself is large, but two systems stand out above a others: the Foundation Fieldbus and the Profibus. They both already have a very large installed base at present.
Although fieldbus transmitters represent advanced technology; they still need to be calibrated. Until now, calibrating fieldbus transmitters has been complicated and time-consuming -it has required typically two persons and a fieldbus system that is in operational use. Because of this, there has been an evident need for a practica calibration solution that would allow fieldbus transmitters to be calibrated easily and efficiently. Beamex's new MC5 Fieldbus Calibrator is a solution to this need. The MC5 is the world's first fieldbus calibrator, which can be used for calibrating Foundation Fieldbus H1 or Profibus PA transmitters.

The MC5 Fieldbus Calibrator is a combination of a multifunction calibrator and a fieldbus configurator. The MC5 is a compact, easy-to-use and field compatible calibration solution that offers a lot of functionality. The fieldbus functions in the MC5 include reading digital output of the fieldbus transmitter, changing the configurations of transmitters and transmitter trimming. Calibrating fieldbus transmitters with the MC5 requires only one person and the calibration results are automatically documented.
The MC5 can be used for various other calibrations as well; it is a calibrator that provides high accuracy and versatility. The MC5 is an all-in-one documenting, multifunction calibrator. It has calibration capabilities for pressure, temperature, electrical and frequency signals. The MC5 also supports HART® communication. The modular construction of the MC5 provides flexibility for user-specific requirements.
Beamex is known worldwide for their high-quality calibration equipment as well as being a forerunner within the field of calibration. "The introduction of a portable fieldbus calibrator is one of the biggest things that has happened in the calibration market for many years. The fact that Beamex is the company that introduces the calibrator, makes us very proud," Mr. Raimo Ahola, Managing Director of Beamex, summarizes the product development project.
BEAMEX is a leading, worldwide provider of calibration solutions that meet even the most demanding requirements of process instrumentation. Beamex offers a comprehensive range of products and services-from portable calibrators to workstations, calibration accessories, calibration software, industry-specific solutions and professional sen/ices. Through Beamex's partner network, their products and services are available in more than 60 countries.
