Electrical DAkkS accreditation for SPEKTRA calibration laboratory

In May 2021 the German national accreditation body Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS) confirmed the extended competence of the SPEKTRA laboratory to now also perform calibrations for electrical measurands in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018. To the acoustic and mechanical measurands already accredited, such as acceleration, are thus now added AC voltage, DC voltage, DC current and capacitance.

A milestone for our calibration laboratory

This accreditation is not only an extension of the possible measurands, but is in fact a milestone for the SPEKTRA calibration laboratory. In particular, we can now provide accredited electrical calibration of vibration as well as acoustic calibration systems. This applies both for newly delivered equipment and for the system recalibration. A particular feature is the possibility of calibrating alternating electrical charge as well as voltages and charges in the frequency range 0.1 Hz to 10 Hz.

One accreditation, many possibilities

The extended DAkkS accreditation enables many more devices under test to be traceably calibrated. The focus here lays on the calibration of vibration measuring equipment such as vibration control systems, signal conditioners, sensor front ends, vibration meters and multistage vibration measurement chains. Likewise, the SPEKTRA S-TEST sensor characterization systems can also be delivered with a DAkkS certificate in the future.

Almost all SPEKTRA business areas will benefit from this new accreditation – from an extension of the available calibration services through to improved all-round service for our system customers in the CS and DT segments.

What does the extended DAkkS accreditation mean for SPEKTRA?

«We expect a notable increase in demand both for our services and for our calibration systems», says Martin Nicklich, General Director of SPEKTRA. «But even more important is the extent of the accreditation for our laboratory and for our own equipment. Not all market players can offer such a wide range of products and services. This will turn SPEKTRA into a much larger player and an even more attractive partner for our customers in the area of calibration.»
