A better way for workshop calibration

The MC6-WS is a high-accuracy calibrator that ensures accurate measurements and low calibration uncertainty. Each MC6-WS is calibrated in the Beamex Accredited Calibration Laboratory, ensuring your workshop calibrations are traceable.

It documents all your calibrations without any manual typing or use of pen and paper and automatically performs error calculation and pass/fail analysis.

Use the MC6-WS together with a Beamex POC8 pressure controller, Beamex ePG electric pressure pump or supported temperature dry blocks for fully automatic pressure and temperature calibrations.

The MC6-WS is the main calibrator in the Beamex CENTRiCAL workshop calibration solution.

Digital data flow

The MC6-WS is a documenting calibrator that digitally captures data at source and ensures a secure data flow between the calibrator and Beamex LOGiCAL or CMX calibration management software.

The seamless data flow between products delivers efficiency and high-quality data.

Use calibration management software to manage what, how, and when to calibrate, and execute the calibration with the MC6-WS according to your pre-configured calibration procedure – even fully automatically. Maintain the full calibration history in LOGiCAL or CMX.

This solution provides accurate measurements and traceable, reliable, and reusable data that can be used for analysis, reporting and calibration certificates.

As a communicator, it enables digital communication with smart field instruments.

Sustainable by design

Sustainable by design

Sustainability is a core component of the Beamex design philosophy. We want you to continue using your calibrators for many years, so they are designed to have a long service life and to be as easy as possible to repair, maintain, and upgrade.

Our world-leading experts can help you to get the most out of your calibrator throughout its entire lifecycle with calibration and repair services, training, and calibration consultancy.  

To meet your changing needs, our products are constantly evolving. Firmware updates provide new features or performance improvements, and you can also upgrade your existing products with new modules or software functionalities. Accessories are quickly and easily available in the Beamex webshop.

User interface modes

A calibrator should have advanced functionality yet remain easy to use, which is why the MC6-WS offers several user interface modes that are optimized for different use cases. For example, if you only want to measure something quickly and easily, use the Meter mode. If you want to perform automatic calibrations, use the Documenting Calibrator mode.

Documenting Calibrator

The Documenting Calibrator mode is designed for the documented and automated calibration of process instruments.

In today’s process plants, calibrations often have to be documented – without a documenting calibrator, this must be done manually, which takes a lot of precious time and is prone to errors.

With the Documenting Calibrator mode, the calibration process is guided, and the calibrator can automatically set the calibration points and document the results.

The Documenting Calibrator mode also works together with calibration management software.

Calibrator

The Calibrator mode is designed for calibrating various process instruments. It enables you to measure or simulate two signals at a time.

Often you need to check and calibrate process instruments, which typically have an input and an output. This means you either need two devices, or a single device capable of doing two things simultaneously.

The Calibrator mode is optimized for this type of use.

Data Logger

The Data Logger is designed for logging up to nine measurements simultaneously.

Often in industry, there is a need to measure signals for a certain period and to save the results for later analysis. This may be related to troubleshooting, surveillance, or calibration.

The data log results can be displayed in numerical or graphical view, and results can be transferred to a PC for further analysis.

The Data Logger mode 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, so engineers need to use communicators or configuration software. Most of this instrumentation is HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus, or Profibus PA.

The Communicator mode is optimized for communicator use to calibrate, configure, and trim your smart instruments.

Meter

The Meter mode is designed for quick and easy signal measurement.

Some multifunction calibrators are slow and difficult to use, so a simple multi-meter is used for quick measurements.

The Meter mode is optimized for simple and easy metering, meaning one calibrator can be used for all measurements.
