NIST Traceable Calibration by EML Calibration




  • Metrological traceability refers to the measurement result which can be related using 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 link between a measurement instrument and also the worth of a measurement standard. Every one of Tektronix standards are traceable right to the International System of Measurements (SI), which is most widely used international system of measurement accountable for defining the meter, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, mole, and candela.
    How Traceability Impacts Global Markets

    Traceability of measurement leads to the SI makes it possible to achieve the accuracy, precision and interchangeability needed for global trade markets. To offer truly standardized components, industry will depend on consistent and reliable measurements which might be traceable to a recognized measurement system including the International System of Units.

    Traceability is particularly imperative that you companies which must adhere to or stick 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 continue with the requirements of ISO to enable them to claim ISO compliance for product. This compliance is generally a sign of the organization’s commitment to service and/or quality.
    NIST Traceable Calibration

    In the U.S., NIST may be the legally established National Standards Laboratory. As such, NIST has got the responsibility “to develop, maintain and retain custody in the national standards of measurement, also to provide you with the means and techniques to make measurements in keeping with those standards; to make sure the compatibility of Usa national measurement standards with those standards; and also to assure the compatibility of United states of america national measurement standards with those of other nations.” [15 U.S.C. 271] NIST ensures the U.S. national standards are accurate realizations of the seven base units in the SI.

    Important a NIST traceable calibration is thorough documentation in the measurement process used to establish the series of calibrations that successively link to the desired reference standard. NIST is responsible limited to documenting traceability for its reference standards as well as the instruments it directly measures. Documenting NIST traceable calibrations in the commercial environment is the sole responsibility of the lab performing the calibration work.
