The ATEX and IECEx certified Beamex MC2-IS Intrinsically Safe Multifunction Calibrator is a new practical tool designed for field calibration and testing in explosive environments. It has calibration capabilities for pressure, temperature and electrical signals and connects to almost 20 available Beamex intrinsically safe external pressure modules. The MC2-IS is a compact lightweight portable calibrator with a large graphic display, multilingual interface and full numerical keyboard. Calibration with the MC2-IS is fast and simple.
Product Manager Heikki Laurila said “While being safe, it still offers the functionality and performance of an industrial calibrator, as it has wide calibration and configuration possibilities.”?
Intrinsic safety is a protection technique for safe operation of electronic equipment in explosive environments. An intrinsically safe calibrator is therefore designed to be incapable of causing ignition in the surrounding environment with flammable materials such as gases, mists, vapours or combustible dust. Intrinsically safe calibrators are designed for use in potentially explosive environments such as oil refineries, rigs and processing plants; gas pipelines and distribution centres; petrochemical and chemical plants, as well as pharmaceutical plants.
The MC2-IS is the second intrinsically safe calibrator the company has introduced. The existing Beamex MC5-IS is the all-in-one documenting calibrator. Introduction of the MC2-IS improves Beamex’s ability to serve customers operating in potentially explosive environments.
The company offers a range of products and services – from portable calibrators to workstations, calibration accessories, calibration software, industry-specific solutions and professional services.
