MagiKal Provides Sensor Diagnostics
MagiKal calibration events are logged to hard disk memory. The figure illustrates the Automatic Report Generator depicting sensor calibration dates and associated aging. Note the increase in the zero level and the decrease in the span level for each successive monthly calibration. Management is alerted as the range bar color changes from green to purple to red as a sensor approaches the minimum dynamic range or drifts off scale. Mechanical adjustments of the sensor's zero/span pots can usually return the sensor to a suitable mid-scale range, good for many more calibrations. After sensor replacement or manual adjustment, simply click on the Cal-Now command and, in a few minutes, verify that all sensors responded properly to a full calibration cycle.
