Why and how to calibrate WirelessHART transmitters?

Posted by beamexcalibration on Sep 16, 2016

In one of our previous blog posts we took a general look at how to calibrate smart transmitters. This time we focus on the WirelessHART transmitters. The WirelessHART transmitters are gaining popularity, so I think it is good to take a look at:

  • What they are
  • How they work
  • Why they should be calibrated
  • How they can be calibrated

How a modern calibration process improves power plant performance

Posted by beamexcalibration on Sep 14, 2016

Today we will take a quick look into a power plant and discuss why it is beneficial to have a proper calibration process in place. We will also discuss the typical calibration related challenges we have seen in power plants and finally, we’ll take a brief look at how a modern calibration process could help overcome this challenges.

ISO9001:2015 – how do the changes affect your calibration process?

Posted by beamexcalibration on Sep 07, 2016

The ISO9001 standard was revised in 2015. In this blog, I will examine the main changes. And as I am madly interested in calibration, I will mostly concentrate on the changes that will affect your calibration processes, if you are an ISO9001 certified company or are applying the standard.

Field Calibration or Workshop Calibration?

Posted by beamexcalibration on Feb 23, 2016

We are sometimes asked if it is better to calibrate process instruments in the field, or in a calibration workshop. It is obviously impossible for us to give a correct generic answer for that question. The right answer for each application depends on various things. In this post I have listed a few common arguments for both field calibration and workshop calibration.
