Software

Every good hardware needs to be complemented by software with the necessary high performance.

The CS18 software was created in close cooperation with the SPEKTRA Calibration laboratory accredited by DAkkS. It meets the demands of every efficiently operating calibration laboratory already in its basic configuration and can easily be adapted to the workflows of any company.

Software Workflow

Harmonization with Workflow in Company

Every business company is organized in its own way, making use of different software tools. As a rule, a calibration system cannot be regarded as an island; normally it is integrated in the company‘s workflow and must exchange data with other software.


For instance, data about calibration jobs need to be imported from ERP and calibration data need to be exported to instrumentation databases or crash-test software data bases. The CS18 software includes the appropriate automation software interfaces by means of which any CS18 calibration system can be adapted to any software environment and workflow.


Even complex calibration procedures can be accomplished in this manner by using small add-on programs. User-specifi c solutions of this kind can be implemented by the customer himself using common software tools or tailor-made by the experienced SPEKTRA software team.
