Intrinsically safe calibration

September 2009 Maintenance, Test & Measurement, Calibration

Beamex introduces the safest way to calibrate fieldbus transmitters.

Fieldbus transmitters must be calibrated just like conventional instruments. There are also industrial environments where the calibration of fieldbus instruments should not only be made accurately and efficiently, but also safely. When safety becomes a top priority issue in calibration, intrinsically safe fieldbus calibrators enter into the picture. Until now, practical solutions for calibrating fieldbus instruments in hazardous areas were a scarcity. In response Beamex has introduced a safe way to calibrate fieldbus instruments.

Many industries require intrinsically safe calibration equipment. Intrinsically safe calibrators are designed for 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. Basically, any potentially explosive industrial environment can benefit from using intrinsically safe calibrators.

Beamex is a forerunner in developing measurement devices for the calibration and configuration of Foundation Fieldbus H1 and Profibus PA transmitters. In 2006, Beamex introduced the Beamex MC5 Fieldbus Calibrator, a combination of a multifunction calibrator and a fieldbus configurator. Now Beamex introduces the Beamex MC5-IS Intrinsically Safe Fieldbus Calibrator, the safest way for calibrating fieldbus transmitters.
