Safe, Practical Field Calibration

Aug 14 2008

Intrinsic safety (IS) is a protection technique for safely operating
electronic equipment in explosive environments. An intrinsically safe
calibrator is therefore designed to be incapable of causing ignition in
the surrounding environment, which may have flammable materials, such as gases, mists, vapors or combustible dust in it.
Intrinsically safe calibrators are designed for use in potentially
explosive environments, such as oil refineries, rigs and processing
plants, gas pipelines and distribution centers, petrochemical
and chemical plants, as well as in pharmaceutical plants.
Beamex`s (Finland) new ATEX and IECEx certified MC2-IS Intrinsically Safe Multifunction Calibrator is a practical tool designed for field calibration and testing in explosive environments.
It has calibration capabilities for pressure, temperature and electrical
signals, and it connects to almost 20 available Beamex intrinsically safe external pressure modules. The MC2-IS is a compact-sized, lightweight portable calibrator with a large graphical display,
multilingual interface and a complete numerical keyboard. Calibration with the MC2-IS is fast and simple.
Summarizing the benefits of using the MC2-IS, Heikki Laurila, product manager at Beamex, says “Our customers have been asking for a straightforward, practical, intrinsically safe field calibrator and that`s exactly what the MC2-IS is.
It provides safety for the person using it, as it is incapable of causing ignition in an explosive environment. Not only is it safe, but it also offers the functionality and performance of an industrial calibrator, as it has wide calibration and configuration possibilities.”
The MC2-IS is the second intrinsically safe multifunction calibrator that Beamex has introduced. The existing Beamex® MC5-IS is an all-in-one
documenting calibrator offering superior functionality and performance
compared to any other intrinsically safe calibrator. Introduction of the MC2-IS improves Beamex`s already excellent ability to serve customers operating in potentially explosive environments.
