Electrical Calibration

 

Multimeter Overview

Multimeters are used to diagnose electrical and electronic equipment, to measure critical electrical parameters, and to ensure safety of electrical workers and end users of electrical products. With so much depending on this versatile instrument, multimeter calibration should not be neglected. We routinely calibrate Fluke multimeters, Keysight Multimeters, Extech Multimeters and many more.

Multimeter Calibration Procedure

To perform multimeter calibration, PCS uses the latest Fluke process calibrators to source and measure AC Current, DC Current, AC Voltage, DC Voltage, Capacitance, and Resistance. We calibrate multimeters by testing several reference points throughout the range of each applicable function or “mode”of the meter.

As an example, if we are calibrating a multimeter that measures AC/DC voltage, AC/DC current, and resistance, we would begin by selecting the AC Voltage measurement mode and test several points across the entire AC Voltage scale at known values generated by our Fluke 5522a process calibrator. Once we have collected the “as found” data of the AC voltage function, we make adjustments (if needed) to the bring the multimeter back in tolerance and subsequently obtain and report  the “as left” data of the unit.

After testing the AC voltage scale on the multimeter, we would repeat the same general procedure for DC voltage, AC current, DC current, resistance and capacitance until all functions have been tested. Performing multimeter calibration in this manner guarantees that your equipment is valid across all operational ranges in every mode. If you have a multimeter or process meter that “sources” various functions, we will use at least a 6.5 digit bench meter to measure several points across the range of each mode.

On Location or In House, We Handle All Your Multimeter Calibration Services

PCS performs multimeter calibration either in our lab (off-site) or on-site due to the functionality and mobility of the Fluke 5522a, Fluke 5502a and Fluke 744 test instruments. Our on-site multimeter calibration services provide the same quality as our in house services. If you have a large amount of instruments that need calibration — or you simply cannot afford any downtime — you may want to consider our on-site calibration services. In any other case, you can ship your instruments to our lab and we’ll turn them around at an unmatched speed (48 Hours or less).

We offer on-site multimeter calibration services to many locations in Tennessee, Virginia, Alabama, Georgia and Kentucky. When you work with us, you’ll benefit from our specialized climate-controlled mobile testing laboratory that we use for on-site calibration. Don’t risk using out of tolerance equipment! If within our region of mobile service, we can provide on-site calibration service.

Accreditation and Documentation

All calibrations are traceable to the SI through NIST, (National Institute of Standard and Technology) and include “long form” calibration certificates with as-found/as-left data.  ISO/IEC-17025 accredited calibration is available upon request. We also offer a web based calibration interface, “e-certificates” that gives you access to electronic copies of your calibration certificates which can be viewed and printed at your convenience. Standard turnaround time is 48 hours.
