Seminar: Calibration of acoustic measuring equipment

For whom? First-time users,  metrology technicians, measurement engineers, persons responsible for test equipment

What is it about? The participants will learn about various items of measuring equipment, their operating modes as well as the physical background. Interference factors during calibration as well as the latest time-effective calibration methods will be introduced.

What will you learn? After completing the seminar, participants will have gained a basic understanding of various types of devices under test, the relevant standards, possible influencing variables on the measurement uncertainty and options for minimizing or eliminating interferences during calibration.
