GENERAL

Standard Agencies and Quality Auditors require the collection, organisation and analysis of traceability documents. CalpMan Plus (Calibration Procedure Manager) is the software package able to manage all the calibration activities as required by the normative. Using the Windows 95TM software, it is easy to set both simple and complex testing procedure using different instruments to simulate, measure and control the operations. It is possible, using the standard instrument drivers, to use all Eurotron temperature and signal calibrators to test your laboratory and process instruments. You could program the complete testing procedure in laboratory, save and recall it every time you want; You can execute the pre-set procedure in laboratory synchronising the connected instruments, save data in the Hard-disk and prepare the complete document to show the results in compliance with ISO 9000 requirements. The main features of CalpMan Plus are: Complete Tag identification and historical documenting of test results; Many certification procedures for each defined Tag; Many Test points; Up to 4 RS232 connections for multiple instruments control. Benefits to be gained from this system are: Optimisation of the maintenance period. By keeping a record of the time required among necessary adjustments, the optimum maintenance period can be determined. Print of the Certificate; a test report can be printed for each TAG. Aid in maintenance planning. Data can be used to analyse the time and cost required for instrument calibrations and can help in planning manpower, specifying supplier, etc. Multiple testing the material using analog scanner can aid in material acceptance activties. Test and calibration data are memory stored in a Microsoft Access database on the PC Hard-disk to document the calibration activity that allows to build a quality control chart/data bank from a single calibration sheet to a detailed historical report. Each instrument (or group of homogeneous instruments), called Tag, to be calibrated/inspected is identified by 20 alphanumeric characters. Additional lines are available for a more detailed description of the instrument to be calibrated and it is possible to insert the producer and the model of the instrument. A typical example is shown below : Tag = Producer = Model = Description =

Each Tag defines a single or group of homogeneous objects to be certificate (many thermocouple with the same specifications, etc.); for this Tag it is possible define a single or a multiple certificate procedure for the same group; each certificate procedure has a multiple test point definition. When Create a new certificate option is selected from the main command panel, the following panel will be displayed:

Using a keyboard and a mouse it's possible to set the desired parameter. For a better understanding of the Certificate options, the window could be divided into different areas as shown below :

STEP VALUE : DECIMAL MASK : ERROR BAND :

Test point value (in engineering unit). Set the decimals to be displayed on the certificate. If the instrument error exceeds the Error band value, CalpMan Plus will consider the instrument out of calibration. The values to be inserted are BAND % and OFFSET. FAIL = (BAND% + OFFSET) If the error is in the fail band, or higher than it, CalpMan Plus will mark the measure with a FAIL message.

ERROR BASED ON : Span:

Define the error band type: The error band is related to the instrument range : In this case, the low scale and full scale values of the instrument to be checked have to be typed in. The error band is related to the instrument reading Define the error sign: Direct : Inverse : The error calculation is: Set point - measure The error calculation is: measure - Set point

GENERATOR / REFERENCE / TAG :

3 cartels to set the generator, the reference and the Tag instruments for the specified set-point.

The following data can be programmed: Enable: Enable/Disable the generator instrument communication with the PC. Instrument driver: Selects the communication driver for the desired instrument (eg. MicroCal 200/200+, MicroCal T1100, etc.). Scale: Electrical or physical parameter to be generated or to be read (Tc or Rtd). Sensor: (if it is applicable) define if you wont to use the internal or external sensor reference. Channel: (if it is applicable) define the output channel of the selected instrument The following parameters are displayed in relation with the selected sensor as above described. If the selected sensor is a thermocouple the following option can be set:
