Calibration

High-precision calibration with ifm electronic

Calibration method for pressure sensors

The comparative measurement for the calibration of pressure sensors is performed with electronic pressure controllers and high-precision deadweight testers by using known mass pieces.

Calibration method for temperature sensors

Here the comparative measurement is performed in stirred, temperature-controlled liquid baths by using high-precision reference temperature sensors.

Calibration method for flow sensors

Depending on the medium, the comparative measurement is performed by using high-precision reference flow devices and critical nozzles.

Calibration method for analytical sensors

The comparative measurement is performed by using a secondary calibration solution.

Benefit from accredited calibrations

Performance of accredited calibrations (DAkkS)

The calibration is performed by ifm as an accredited laboratory by means of a comparative measurement according to guideline DKD-R 5-1(09/2018) “Calibration of Resistance Thermometers” or guideline DKD-R 6-1 (03/2014) “Calibration of Pressure Gauges” or guideline KV-F001 (2017-06) “Internal calibration method for flow sensors”.

Measuring systems for issuing DAkkS / factory certificates

They are traceable to national standards of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) or other national standards. In contrast to DAkkS calibration certificates, factory certificates are not accepted as traceability proof.

 

Special remarks

  • In addition to analogue process values, ifm offers the option to also specify IO-Link process values in the calibration certificate.
  • All certificates are bilingual and issued in German and English
  • Corresponding certificates must be requested when ordering the article in question
