High integrity measurement and control systems need to be carefully calibrated to ensure each instrument is working within its operational limits. Calibrate™ manages the whole calibration process and provides certification that can be easily accessed and audited.
Gone are the days of storing calibrations in many separate spreadsheets scattered over several different machines. Calibrate™ is an online metering calibration management system that is designed to streamline the calibration process in one centrally managed database that maintains an auditable trail of all calibrations that have been performed.
One or more calibrations can be defined for every piece of equipment in the database using templates from Calibrate™’s extensive library of available metering calculations. These templates dynamically adjust to reflect the type of form required as options and other parameters are defined.
Once setup these calibrations will automatically be added into the station’s calibration schedule and will automatically flagged to the technicians when they are due. Upcoming calibrations are shown graphically on a calendar and overdue calibrations are flagged by email.
Entering the calculation results is just as easy with all the information presented on a single page, with all the equipment and test equipment details already embedded. Once the form has been completed, the calibration results are sent back to the server for validation and a calibration certificate is automatically generated.
Calibrate™ continually collates all the results from every calibration and plots them as a chart. These results can be used prove how reliable a piece of equipment has been while it has been in service and can be used to help make a justification to extend the calibration period if the historical results are consistent enough.
Calibrate™ can interface with other business systems such as SAP or Maximo. These systems can dictate their calibration schedule to Calibrate™, which then manages the calibration process and reports back once it has been completed, providing a seamless link between the two environments and substantially reducing the amount of work that the technician must perform.
Test equipment can have calibrations setup and scheduled in exactly the same way as process equipment. Their calibrations can also include a scan of the test certificate along with the new calibrated parameters. These parameters are used by calibrations when the piece of test equipment is selected, ensuring the most accurate data is always available and eliminating the requirement to re-enter values multiple times.
Calibrate™ provides a unique platform for sharing data relating to the calibration of key instrumentation used in measurement and control systems, ensuring that those responsible for maintenance and auditing have immediate access to this critical information.
Calibrate™ can be used as a local, stand-alone package or integrated with one or more of the applications in the Metrology™ suite.
