As briefly mentioned in the LOGiCAL message a couple of weeks ago, the MC2 is now a documenting calibrator. With the newest firmware version (3.20) just released, the MC2 becomes a documenting calibrator. This is a standard feature (no options required). The MC2 will have a similar calibration mode as the MC4. Selected existing MC2 calibrators can also be updated free of charge to become documenting calibrators. This new firmware is compatible with MC2-TE and MC2-MF calibrators with serial number
greater than 13000.

Difference between Calibration and Validation

CALIBRATION
Calibration is a process that ensures that accuracy is maintained in the measurements produced by your equipment.

Calibration performance of any equipment is compared against a reference standard.

Calibration assures accuracy of measurements.

You must periodically calibrate your instruments. Identify if there is a ‘drift’ in the measurements and eliminate it through calibration.

It should be performed as per calibration Standard Operating Procedure

VALIDATION
Validation is a documented process that provides assurance that a product, service or system consistently provides results within the acceptable criteria.

There are no reference standards used in validation.

Validation provides proof of consistency across all the processes, batches of
products or methods being used.

There are no such requirements for validation. It should be performed when you make any change in the existing system or when the revalidation period has reached.

It should be performed as per the validation protocol.

Interface Torque Transducers

In a competitive market, you need to respond immediately to anything which could affect your production efficiency. You need to deal with it now, and you need to understand what to do to stop it from happening again.
London Electronics offer a range of sizes to allow viewing from close up to as far as 200m away. Sealed for washdown and with a 3 year warranty, these displays are reliable and quickly pay for themselves. All are RoHS compliant. Live data can even be saved onto a cloud-based system so you can view the same live data from wherever you are in the world.
Stock Status display to show stock status in various stores areas.
Industrial displays need to accept the most common industrial signals, so we have solutions for TCP/IP, Ethernet/IP, Profinet, Profibus, Interbus,  therCAT, ControlNet, 4-20mA, load cells etc.

Hawker Electronics Flexilevel2 Indicator / Controller

The Hawker Flexilevel 2 is a wall mounted Process Indicator and Controller, which accepts a signal input between 0 to 25mA, it incorporates a 24V DC power supply to operate loop-powered transmitters such as Hawker Sondaloop.
Five voltage free relays are provided, four of which are programmable with fully adjustable hysteresis for use as pump control or alarm. The fifth relay is a multi-purpose fault relay designed to de-energise with power failure and excess current (21mA ). Power Supply for the Flexilevel is either 230/110VHz or 24V DC.

AMS News

The second Beamex User Group meeting in Perth was held last month and according to the feedback received from the attendees it proved to be a great success. Planning is already on the way for the next meeting

The first quarter of the year has seen a relatively slow start to the year, but we are expecting an upsurge for the remainder of the year with the release of several new products and increased activity.

We also would like to welcome two new employees ti the AMS group, with Andrew Aditya joining us in Victoria as sales engineer and Michael Rudakov as an apprentice also in our Victorian office. We trust that both will have a long and rewarding career at AMS. AMS currently has still a vacancy for a sales engineer in our New South Wales office for an immediate start.

The AMS subsidiary, AMS Water Metering, have received their first order and has just been awarded their NMI approval for the supply
of smart water meters in Australia. This is a significant step forward in the short history of the company. The website www.amswatermetering.com has also just been released.
