Intrinsic safety (IS) is a protection technique for safe operation of electronic equipment in explosive environments.
An intrinsically safe calibrator is therefore designed to be incapable of causing ignition in the surrounding environment with flammable materials, such as gases, mists, vapours or combustible dust.
Intrinsically safe calibrators are designed for use in 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.
The new ATEX and IECEx certified Beamex MC2-IS Intrinsically Safe Multifunction Calibrator is a practical tool designed for field calibration and testing in explosive environments.
Beamex MC2-IS Intrinsically Safe Multifunction Calibrator 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 compact-sized, lightweight portable calibrator with large graphical display, multilingual interface and full numerical keyboard. Calibration with the MC2-IS is fast and simple.
“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. But while being safe, it still offers the functionality and performance of an industrial calibrator, as it has wide calibration and configuration possibilities”, Heikki Laurila, Beamex’s product manager summarises the benefits of using an MC2-IS.
The MC2-IS is the second intrinsically safe calibrator Beamex introduces. The existing Beamex MC5-IS is the 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 high ability to serve customers operating in potentially explosive environments.
The Beamex MC2-IS Intrinsically Safe Multifunction Calibrator is available in a wide range from AMS Instrumentation & Calibration .
