What Equipment Requires Calibration?

Instrument calibration is an essential process in determining your equipment’s accuracy and making any necessary adjustments to get a more precise result from them. Over time, your equipment can begin providing less accurate readings due to mechanical shocks, exposure to extreme pressure and/or temperatures, and other harsh operating conditions.  You should get your instruments professionally … Read more

The Purpose of Calibration

There are many pieces of technical equipment that run our lives today, from our transport methods like the altimeters in planes, to the temperature monitoring/control of our food and drink. We expect these things to be accurate and to run safely, and to do this we need to calibrate our equipment. In this blog, we’ll … Read more

Why calibration is critical – yes, even for domestic electricians!

Most instruments are typically subjected to some fairly rough treatment — bouncing around in the vehicle, dropped, knocked, fuses are blown and so on. Even if they’re treated carefully and not bashed around, changes in ambient temperatures, humidity levels, condensation on those cold winter mornings, and deteriorating component tolerances will cause a shift in any … Read more

What Are Calibration Standards?

Accurate calibration requires an instrument under test (IUT) to be compared to a calibration standard which will have an output or measurement of known value.  But where do these standard measurements come from? And how are they enforced in Australia? A basic definition A calibration standard is an internationally recognised value that is considered to … Read more

Why You Shouldn’t Calibrate Your Own Equipment

You should be thinking about calibrating your equipment at least once a year, or even more frequently in some industries. Some businesses might prefer the DIY route to minimise costs and downtime for the company, however, calibrating your own equipment is rarely the best plan of action. Without the proper expertise, you’ll be unable to … Read more
