A New Calibration Software Family

Published: Wednesday, July 11, 2007 - 22:00

(Beamex: Marietta, Georgia ) -- Computer-aided calibration management is becoming more and more common for managing calibration information and calibration assets in the process industry. Tough requirements set by regulatory authorities and quality systems, the need for improving calibration-related work productivity and efficiency, as well as the need to increase system automation; all support the use of calibration software instead of manual “pen and paper-”based systems for managing calibration assets.

“The new Beamex CMX calibration software family is the most complete range of calibration software products available in the market”, explains Jan-Henrik Svensson, the vice president of sales and marketing of Beamex Group. CMX Light is easy-to-use calibration software for a single workstation. It’s the calibration solution for all large and mid-sized companies that wish for advanced, yet simple to use, calibration software. CMX Professional is suitable for large and mid-sized companies, which require an advanced and efficient calibration system that meets demanding and specific requirements (e.g. ISO/IEC 17025, cGMP and FDA 21 CFR Part 11). CMX Enterprise is an all-in-one calibration solution for large companies. One floating installation of CMX Enterprise and all plants can share the same system and database worldwide. With any of the CMX calibration software products, a company can manage different calibration quantities such as pressure, temperature, electrical, indicators, recorders, mass, pH, length, and flow.

“According to our recent customer study, 90 percent of CMX customers state that using Beamex products has improved the efficiency of their calibration procedures”, says Sami Koskinen, Beamex’s software and services product manager. Productivity is improved, for instance, by the automated calibration procedures and paperless documentation of calibration information. Results are also achieved faster and with greater accuracy compared to “pen and paper-”based systems. Making conclusions, improving operations, and analyzing calibration results are also simplified with CMX.

As Beamex CMX calibration software is designed to meet the requirements of several quality standards and regulatory authorities, it has already gained wide popularity in companies within industries such as power and energy, oil and gas, and especially pharmaceutical.
