Automating the calibration management ecosystem

While the pen might be mightier than the sword, in process industries pen and paper-based calibration systems are a weak spot that is desperately in need of attention. Automating your calibration ecosystem saves time, reduces the risk of errors, and enables your organization to use calibration data for business benefits.

Tackling the problem of human error in calibration data entry


Manual entry is still commonly used in industrial processes even though it is a slow and labor-intensive process with a high possibility of human error. In this article we discuss industrial calibration processes and the manual data entry related to these processes.

Do more with less and generate ROI with an automated calibration solution

Process instrument calibration is just one of the many maintenance-related activities in a process plant. The last thing you want to do is to have your limited resources wasting time performing unnecessary calibrations or using time-consuming, ineffective calibration procedures.

What our power industry customers say

The Beamex CMX Analytics Dashboard project has been great in collecting the data and has given us the ability to run amazing reports. (Now) we are taking it to a whole new level in what we do with that data and making it easy to analyze, which is the next step in shifting towards predictive and prescriptive maintenance when it comes to instrumentation.

Russell Genet, IC&E Supervisor, Salt River Project, US

The amount of equipment required to perform calibrations has dropped from an average of 5 to 1, and 80 standards have been retired due to the multifunction capabilities of the MC6. No matter who uses the system, the work is performed in the same manner in CMX, which creates a more reliable system and high data confidence.

Beamex MC6 process calibrator and PGM calibration pump

By removing all manual steps in the workflow, and eliminating all the paper from the dataflow, the plant has realized a documented time savings of 70%, even up to 75% in some cases, on calibrating pressure transmitters and pressure switches.

Faran Rolingson, Senior Control Engineer, Alabama Power, US

Our program was a mess. We were still using paper and pen. Everyone completed the process differently. It was a huge problem that could cost the company money. With the permission of the plant manager, I purchased Beamex MC6 documenting calibrators, modules and CMX software. And the rest is how legends begin.

Ron Cash, Senior Combined Cycle Tech, Lawrenceburg Energy Facility, US

The most significant impact overall is that Salt River Project has been able to save about 30 minutes per calibration using an automated approach. Calibration tasks that would normally take a month to two months to complete during a unit overhaul can be performed in a few weeks, and time is money.

Jody Damron, Business Analyst, Salt River Project, US

With the Beamex system, we now have all the calibration data stored digitally. Before this was stored on an external server. But now they are more concretely “our data” and can in the long term be even further integrated into our overall maintenance system if we decide to expand our software solution.

How a business analyst connected calibration and asset management [Case Story]

One of America’s largest public power utilities integrated its asset management software with calibration management software to reduce risk and increase efficiency, saving about 30 minutes per calibration using an automated approach.
