Calibration guide


Quality managers and others responsible to maintaining the integrity of temperature and/or humidity chart recorders or data loggers, can now download a comprehensive guide to all aspects of instrument calibration at: http://www.dicksondata.com/calibration/ calibration_order.php

Chapters of this online guide include:

  • Explanations of why calibrations are required -Review of calibration methods to choose from
  • A step-by-step guide to developing calibration schedules
  • "Before" Data considerations
  • Best fit applications for 1-point, 3-point and custom point calibrations
  • Glossary of calibration terms
  • Optional Calibration Club registration

Chris Sorensen, Dickson VP Sales and Marketing explains, "All instruments lose accuracy over time due to normal usage and the environmental conditions to which they are exposed. Periodic NIST certified calibrations maintain the accuracy of your instrument throughout its life. This guide is designed to make it very easy for users of chart recorders and data loggers to navigate the many choices in calibration approaches to find the one that is best-matched to their application requirements."
