NIST Traceable Calibration by EML Calibration




  • Metrological traceability refers to the measurement result which can be related via an unbroken chain of calibrations, including measurement uncertainty determination, to specified references. It is really a basic assurance that a relationship exists between the measurement outcomes of a measurement instrument as well as the worth of a measurement standard. Every one of Tektronix standards are traceable directly to the International System of Measurements (SI), the most widely used international system of measurement responsible for defining the meter, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, mole, and candela.
    How Traceability Impacts Global Markets

    Traceability of measurement results to the SI assists you to achieve the accuracy, precision and interchangeability necessary for global trade markets. To provide truly standardized components, industry will depend on reliable and consistent measurements which can be traceable into a recognized measurement system for example the International System of Units.

    Traceability is especially vital that you companies which must abide by or keep to the requirements of International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard(s). ISO requirements often require that test, measurement and control equipment be traceable to recognized national or international standards. Other organizations may voluntarily keep to the requirements of ISO to be able to claim ISO compliance because of their product. This compliance is normally a signal of the organization’s resolve for service and/or quality.
    NIST Traceable Calibration

    Within the U.S., NIST is the legally established National Standards Laboratory. Therefore, NIST has got the responsibility “to develop, maintain and retain custody in the national standards of measurement, and also to provide the means and methods for making measurements in step with those standards; to make sure the compatibility of Usa national measurement standards with those standards; and assure the compatibility of U . s . national measurement standards with the ones from other nations.” [15 U.S.C. 271] NIST ensures the U.S. national standards are accurate realizations of the seven base units from the SI.

    Fundamental to a NIST traceable calibration is thorough documentation from the measurement process utilized to establish the series of calibrations that successively url to the actual required reference standard. NIST is responsible just for documenting traceability due to the reference standards and also the instruments it directly measures. Documenting NIST traceable calibrations in the industry environment could be the sole responsibility of the lab performing the calibration work.
