Beamex MC6-Ex is an intrinsically safe, advanced field calibrator and communicator.
If you want to take a normal, non-Ex calibrator into a hazardous area, you need to have a hot-work permit - it takes time, effort and bureaucracy to get one and you also need to make a risk analysis. Also, you need to carry additional safety equipment with you such as gas analysers. Using an Ex certified intrinsically safe calibrator in an Ex area is the safest and easiest choice.
Typical industries with hazardous areas include chemical and petrochemical industries, offshore and on-shore oil and gas, oil refining, the pharmaceutical industry, food and beverage, energy production, paint shops and mining.
The Beamex MC6-Ex is an advanced, high-accuracy advanced calibrator and communicator with excellent functionality. It is a documenting, multifunction calibrator and communicator that offers calibration capabilities for pressure, temperature and various electrical signals. It also contains a field communicator for HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus and Profibus PA instruments.
MC6-Ex is an IEC and ATEX certified product and can be used on any Ex Zone / Division, even in the most demanding Zone 0/Division 1. The certification classification is Ex II 1 G and Ex ia IIC T4 Ga.
The robust, IP65-rated dust- and water-proof casing, ergonomic design and ease-of-use make it an ideal device for field use.
The MC6-Ex communicates with Beamex calibration management software, enabling fully automated and paperless calibration and documentation. The MC6-Ex can also be part of the paperless integration to the customer’s own ERP system.
Other features include: internal loop supply, up to three internal pressure measurement modules and external modules, large 5.7in backlit colour display with touchscreen and multilingual user interface, smart field-replaceable battery pack, built-in field communicator, documenting capability and a data logger functionality. Also, communication with pressure and temperature controllers is possible in a safe area.
