Direct connection of the calibrator, temperature block, and device management platform simplifies the process and records results automatically. Video: Beamex’s Ned Espy demonstrates the process.
Ned Espy, technical director with Beamex, demonstrates an automated, documented loop calibration of a wireless HART transmitter that has been removed from service using the company’s MC6 Advanced Field Calibrator and Communicator, Field Temperature Block, and probe at the Emerson Global Users Exchange 2013.
This automatically documented test is fully supported by Calibration Excellence, a best-in-class software solution for managing calibrations which includes Beamex’s CMX calibration software, Emerson’s AMS Device Manager and the AMS Suite Calibration Connector – which provides a communication link between AMS Device Manager and CMX.
Beamex and ISA have now entered into a partnership naming Beamex as ISA’s Strategic Partner for Calibration. Under the agreement, the two groups will work together to provide ISA members and customers with access to Beamex’s calibration resources, including publications, case studies, seminars, and advice.
