We report a new calibration of the polarimeter POMME for energies between 1.05 and 2.40 GeV using polarized proton beams at the Laboratoire National Saturne. A 16 parameter and a new 14 parameter empirical formula have been used to fit both the angular and energy dependencies of the inclusive proton-carbon analyzing power data between 0.80 and 2.40 GeV. Both fits have very good chi-square, 1.20 per degree of freedom for the former, and 1.05 for the latter. The parameters from these fits can be used to predict the angular distribution of the pC analyzing power at any energy within the energy range of the fits.
