Fluke Calibration, a division of Fluke Corporation and certain of its affiliates, introduces version 9 of its MET/CAL Calibration Management Software, the latest edition of the industry-leading application suite for calibration professionals who need to automate the calibration process and manage calibration assets efficiently and consistently. Automating calibration procedures with MET/CAL can reduce the time to set up and run procedures by as much as 80 percent, helping calibration laboratory technicians get more done.
MET/CAL 9 software has a new intuitive Runtime interface that is easier to use with features like:
- Drop down menus,
- Clean and visible prompts and results,
- A progress wheel that shows how much of the procedure has run, and
- Procedure details displayed throughout the run.
Version 9 also features a new and improved configuration format with check boxes and slide bars to simplify complex hardware configurations. Information is laid out in a simplified format and most changes do not require a restart of either the MET/CAL editor or Runtime.
MET/CAL is a software suite consisting of two applications: MET/CAL for automated calibration and MET/TEAM for test and measurement asset management. The combination allows calibration professionals to automate calibration on test and measurement tools and equipment, including dc/lf, RF, and microwave instruments. The combination also allows users to easily create, edit, test, and document calibration procedures, and track asset information, including calibration and maintenance history and status, traceability, users, customers, and locations.
MET/CAL software users can obtain extended support through the MET/SUPPORTSM Gold support program. The annual membership program includes priority access for software support, free software upgrades, free access to more than 8,000 performance-tested MET/CAL procedures, and a 20 percent discount on training and database services.
