This week's blog comes from our calibration and repair department:
The top three calibration issues listed below aren’t new problems, but in our experience, they are definitely issues we have to be diligent about.
Vaisala Standard calibration is equal to the calibration performed for new Vaisala instruments before those leave the factory. It is a perfect choice when you need to verify that the instrument accuracy matches the original specifications.
Accredited calibration is a right option if your instrument is used in regulated industries, used as a reference instrument or your quality standards require a calibration complying with strictest regulations.
Custom calibration is the correct choice if specific points within your instrument’s measurement range are needed.
Vaisala provides On-site calibration services for selected data loggers and instruments used in Continuous monitoring systems. The service is a convenient alternative when the system downtime is not an option. On-site calibrations are always performed by the Vaisala experts and complemented with an official certificate and documentation package.
A Calibration Care agreement is the most economical and convenient way to maintain the accuracy of your Vaisala measurement instrument over its lifespan.
