The MC6 is an advanced, high-accuracy field calibrator and communicator which offers calibration capabilities for pressure, temperature and various electrical signals, and contains a full fieldbus communicator for HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus and Profibus PA instruments. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.The MC6 is an industry benchmark delivering unmatched accuracy among process calibrators, including a multi-bus Fieldbus communicator and the world's first Profibus PA communicator.

The MC6 is the first calibrator that combines advanced functionality and accuracy with usability. The processing industry is going through significant changes and is affected by industry trends. Mr. Raimo Ahola, CEO of Beamex Group said, “We have conducted extensive market- and customer-related studies worldwide during the past few years by interviewing thousands of instrumentation and calibration professionals, and based on those studies, and also on direct feedback we have received from our customers, several industry trends are evident, which pose new demands on devices and systems used for performing and managing calibrations. This feedback was the starting point for our product development project a few years ago when we decided to develop a device that will be the next measurement industry benchmark."

It offers calibration capabilities for pressure, temperature and various electrical signals. The MC6 contains a full fieldbus communicator for HART, Foundation fieldbus, and Profibus PA instruments. The usability and ease-of-use are make the MC6 unique. It has a large 5.7 in. color touch-screen with a multilingual user-interface. The robust IP65-rated dust- and water-proof casing, ergonomic design, and light weight make it an ideal measurement device for field use in various industries, such as the pharmaceutical, energy, oil and gas, food and beverage, and service as well as the petrochemical and chemical industries.

The MC6 is one device with five operational modes, which allows technicians to carry less equipment in the field. The operation modes include 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. The MC6 is more than a calibrator.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
