What is ISO calibration?

ISO 17025 Accreditation proves a laboratory has an acceptable quality management system in place, and it has the ability and competence to provide testing and calibration results.

What is meant by calibration of equipment?

Calibration is the process of comparing a reading on one piece of equipment or system, with another piece of equipment that has been calibrated and referenced to a known set of parameters. The equipment used as a reference should itself be directly traceable to equipment that is calibrated according to ISO/IEC 17025.

What is UKAS calibration?

UKAS Calibration refers to calibration that is undertaken in a laboratory that has been independently audited and accredited to carry out the work.

What is an example of calibration?

A person typically performs a calibration to determine the error or verify the accuracy of the DUT’s unknown value. As a basic example, you could perform a calibration by measuring the temperature of a DUT thermometer in water at the known boiling point (212 degrees Fahrenheit) to learn the error of the thermometer.

What is meant by 3 point calibration?

A 3-point NIST calibration differs from a 1-point NIST calibration in the amount of points checked for their accuracy by a calibration lab, and thus the document that is generated. The 3-point calibration consists of a high, middle, and low check, and thus grants you proof of accuracy over a larger range.
