Calibration

Calibration implies to measure and compare a measuring object (test object or device under test) to and against a traceable calibration standard following a well documented testing procedure.

According to the international vocabulary of metrology (VIM - JCGM 200:2012, 3rd edition published by "des Bureau International des Poids et Measures BIPM") calibration is defined as "operation that, under specific conditions, in a first step, establishes a first relation between the quantity values with measurement uncertainties provided by measurement standards and corresponding indications with associated measurement uncertainties and, in a second step, uses this information to establish a relation for obtaining a measurement result from an indication“.

calibration expert

calibration expert is a software application dedicated to standardize calibration procedures in terms of content i.e. test points, applied calibration standards and measurement uncertainties among multiple calibration stations, calibrations laboratories, branch offices and for an infinite number of instruments to be calibrated. Calibration Expert is the ideal, unique and powerful software application for third-party calibration laboratories whether operating as part of an organization’s internal calibration laboratory or as an external, competing third-party calibration laboratory.
