RMCS system is dedicated to management of calibrating and testing procedures in a laboratory from the moment of accepting an order, through its progress and until issuing a calibration certificate. The software manages the complete calibrating and testing process.
The operation of mass comparators in connection with the software for network management of calibration process provides improved efficiency, reliable measurement results and complete documentation from calibration process, together with lower labour costs.
The system enables initiating the calibration procedure by ordering a task to a mass comparator, and autonomous executing calibration process on a mass comparator. In both cases, 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 cooperate with THB ambient conditions monitors enabling recording major ambient factors like temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure throughout the control process. The modules are detachable from the mass comparators for calibration and adjustment of their sensors.
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.
