FlukeCalibration, a leader in precision calibration instrumentation and software, introduces version 8.0 of its MET/CAL® Plus 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.

MET/CALPlus 8.0 software adds many new enhancements, including an expanded Procedure Editor with a more flexible user interface, more powerful functions for editing, testing, and storing procedures, increased security allowing users to create procedures that cannot be edited or changed by others, and the ability to automate a wider variety of references including power sensors, RF power meters, and National Instruments PXI systems. The new version supports compliance with calibration and quality standards including the ANSI/NCSL Z540.3, ISO 9000, ISO/IEC 17025, and NRC 10 CFR.

MET/CAL Plus is a software suite consisting of two applications: MET/CAL for automated calibration and MET/TRACK® 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.

Calibration data can be easily analyzed, reported and shared with MET/CALPlus software. Customized reports and printed certificates can be produced with the software, and data can be exported to other corporation systems.

Fluke Calibration offers MET/CALPlus software users extended support through the MET/SUPPORT(SM) Gold support program. The annual membership program includes priority access for software support, free software upgrades, free access to over 4,000 warranted MET/CAL procedures, and 20 percent discount on training and database services.
