Mass comparators and software for network management of calibration process provide improved efficiency, reliable measurement results and complete calibration process documentation, plus lower labour costs.
The system enables to initiate the calibration procedure by means of a task order sent to a mass comparator, and autonomously by the mass comparator itself. In both cases, the data is transferred to the software for the purpose of registering, controlling and finally issuing a calibration certificate.
Mass comparators linked in the RMCS system autonomously communicate with THB modules recording ambient conditions (temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure) throughout the whole control process. The modules are detachable from the mass comparators, this makes calibration of their sensors easy.
Data on current ambient conditions is displayed in real time on mass comparator’s display. The data is also sent do RMCS software for control and archiving purposes.
