Profibus and FOUNDATION Fieldbus: Fieldbus, instrumentation calibrator in one package
The Beamex MC5 is said to be the world's first fieldbus calibrator.
Whether you use Profibus PA, FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1, or HART, the Beamex MC5 Fieldbus Calibrator will be a helpful diagnostic tool for network communication and instrumentation.
The all-in-one package reportedly offers many useful maintenance functions:
Calibrate and configure fieldbus transmitters;
One-person fieldbus calibration, even before the network is operational;
Calibration capabilities for pressure, temperature, electrical, and frequency signals;
HART communication; and,
Configure and trim instrument transmitters.
"The introduction of a portable fieldbus calibrator is one of the biggest things that has happened in the calibration market for many years," says Beamex managing director, Raimo Ahola. The MC5 can simultaneously simulate a transmitter input and read the output to detect and quantify error. Calibrations are traceable using built-in documentation functions capable of downloading results to a computer or printer. Optional add-on modules extend its range and capabilities for more complex functions.
With its IP65-rated dust and waterproof housing, combined with 10 hour average battery life, the MC5, Beamex says, is ready for daily use in the most rugged environments. The MC5-IS model is intrinsically safe for hazardous duty.
