Hardware - Handheld test, measurement, calibration: The ATEX and IECEx certified second generation of the Beamex MC2-IS intrinsically safe multifunction calibrator is a practical tool designed for field calibration and testing in explosive environments. This is a Control Engineering 2014 Engineers’ Choice finalist.The ATEX and IECEx certified second generation of the Beamex MC2-IS intrinsically safe multifunction calibrator is a practical tool designed for field calibration and testing in explosive environments. Compared to the first generation, there is a new display with an LED backlight for improved display visibility in various environments. It also has a more powerful processor and an improved battery shelf life. The appearance of the second generation MC2-IS has a stronger IS unit identification. As with the previous generation, the MC2-IS has calibration capabilities for pressure, temperature and electrical signals, and it connects to almost 20 available Beamex intrinsically safe external pressure modules. It is a compact-sized, lightweight portable calibrator with a multilingual interface and a complete numerical keyboard. Calibration with the MC2-IS is fast and simple. In addition, intrinsically safe calibrators are the only technique permitted for Zone 0 environments (explosive gas and air mixture is continuously present or present for a long time).

Features include: Internal pressure module (barometric only), connection for external pressure modules, current measurement, (with internal and external supply), voltage measurement, frequency measurement, pulse counting, switch sensing, internal HART compatible 24 Vdc loop supply, current generation (with internal and external supply), voltage generation, frequency generation, pulse generation, mV measurement/simulation, resistance measurement/simulation, RTD measurement/simulation, and TC measurement/simulation.

Specifications include:

  • Operating temperature 14 to 122 F (-10 to 50 C)
  • Storage temperature -4 to 140 F (-20 to 60 C)
  • Humidity 0% to 80% R.H. non condensing 0% to 80% R.H. non condensing
  • Safety: Directive 73/23/EEC, EN 61010-1
  • EMC: Directive 89/336/EEC, EN 61326
  • Ex - ATEX: II 1 G T4 Ga (Ta = -10 to +50 C)
  • IECEx: Ex ia IIC T4 Ga (Ta = -10 to +50 C)
