Calibration of Test Instruments
All PCE test instruments, tools and equipment for measuring, weighing and control systems are factory or manufacturer calibrated. Should you company require ISO (or DAkkS) calibration, ISO (or DAkkS) calibration certificates can be acquired as an optional accessory at additional cost to most test instruments. While we do not offer NIST calibration, ISO calibration is accepted as an NIST equivalent in the United States, as ISO calibration is respected worldwide.
An ISO calibration certificate should list all measured values obtained during testing and calibration to confirm the device meets the applicable ISO standard(s). Each ISO calibration certificate is personalized for the customer; therefore, ISO calibration certificates are exempt from the right of return.
For example, if a customer orders a digital dew point thermometer with an ISO calibration certificate, the thermometer is calibrated at two temperature points (e.g., -10°C / +14°F and +60°C / +140°F) according to the applicable ISO standard. The calibration procedure is documented, and the customer receives a special test report including his/her company name and address as well as a reference to the specific instrument used during testing and calibration.
Some test instruments, such as scales and balances, are verified as legal for trade. If a scale or balance is verified as legal for trade, this important feature will be noted in the product description. The legal-for-trade designation applies mainly to commercial use when goods are valued and sold based on weight. The legal-for-trade verification must be renewed after a certain time period. Also, if the scale or balance ever needs repair, a re-verification must be performed on the instrument to ensure the proper level of accuracy is maintained.
