The term calibration describes a process by which a measuring device is set precisely to a certain measuring range. Regular calibration prevents deviations from the targeted standard range. The values set on the measuring device by means of calibration may deviate again due to various factors. The duration of the necessary calibration cycle depends on the measuring device you are using, the framework conditions of the application domain and the target tolerance from the standard values. It can be very short.
For complex measurement processes, the actual calibration is preceded by the creation of a mathematical pattern for the interpretation of the core data and of calibration instructions such as the calibration range and extend of service.
The calibration basis also determines the calibration instruction containing the individual characteristics to be calibrated and the limit values. Even with careful calibration, there is a residual calibration uncertainty. This can be also calculated and must be recorded in the calibration report.
The basis for the calibration of a measuring device is the certification standard for quality management systems according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008. It contains the quality-relevant core data for the manufactured product. In addition, a relevant standard is the calibration guideline 2622 of VDE, VDI, DKD and DGQ. Further, you must consider the technical standards for the control of inspection, measuring and test equipment and for quality assurance and quality management, as well as the provisions for the domain of future use of the calibrated measurement device.
