New software makes calibration management a snap
A new software package from Beamex, Inc., the CMX V2, offers advanced features, options and benefits for calibration management.“It’s very simple to use; it provides traceable and auditable calibration reports, it adheres to regulations and it has wide customization possibilities,” explains Sami Koskinen, Software Product Manager. “On top of this, the new CMX V2 adds flexibility and entirely new possibilities to calibration management, such as using a PDA for manual entry on site or planning the optimal calibration interval with History Trend.” The new CMX V2 is ideal for companies that want to increase their calibration-related work efficiency by making the entire calibration system paperless. In addition, CMX is suitable for companies that need to have a calibration system that meets regulatory requirements, such as ISO 17025, cGMP and 21 CFR Part 11. Therefore, both large and small companies in the food and beverage industries will find the software highly useful. Moreover, when operations expand or several other plants need to use the same calibration management system, CMX adapts accordingly, thanks to its enterprise capabilities. Integrating the CMX into a maintenance management system is also possible. The CMX V2 allows a company to computerize its entire calibration system, making it completely paperless. This is possible due to communication with documenting calibrators and the new Pocket PC Option of CMX, which allows the use of a PDA for manual data entry on site. This means the days of manual data entry with pen and paper are over. All calibration data can be stored efficiently and safely in a database.The CMX V2's new History Trend Option allows the user to analyze the instrument’s drift over a certain time period. Based on this information, it is possible to make decisions and conclusions concerning the optimal calibration interval and the quality of the instruments.Other features of the CMX V2 include wide calibration reporting possibilities with customized, traceable and auditable calibration certificates. There are many different templates to choose from and the calibration reports can be modified to meet company standards. In addition, the plant can share a database with other plants worldwide with the CMX V2. Storing all calibration data in one database is efficient use of both calibration and IT resources.
