Why calibration is a must

A calibrated measuring instrument is indispensable:

  • taking precise measurements with well-known measurement uncertainty
  • taking measurements the results of which are commensurable
  • granting legal security as the results of the measurements taken can be traced to the respective national calibration standards

Calibration is performed by determining the values that a measuring instrument reads out when exposed to a precisely defi ned excitation quantity. If someone intends to take measurements, he or she should precisely know the characteristics of his or her measuring instrument and should be sure that his or her measurement results are commensurable with the measurement results obtained by third parties.
To obtain generally commensurable measurement results, the instruments must be traced to a national standard. This traceability is ensured and maintained by the calibration hierarchy. So everyone who wants to take precise and commensurable measurements should have his or her measuring instrumentation calibrated in regular intervals by an accredited calibration laboratory or perform the calibration routine himself using a traced calibration system.
