Is Your Multimeter Calibration Checking Mulitple Test Points?

Multimeter CalibrationDigital Multimeters, or DMMs, are one of the most common types of electrical test equipment and can provide accurate readings for current, voltage, and resistance. Additionally, many of today’s DMMs can test parameters such as temperature, capacitance, and frequency.

While some technicians may only test one point for each measurement type, our technicians check a series of points across the entire range for each parameter.

It is best practice to use the manufacturer’s procedure to determine which/how many test points to check. In cases where the manufacturer procedure is not available, we check a minimum of 3 test points for each parameter to ensure that the multimeter is accurate across the full range of the device.

At J.A. King, our technicians will take it a step farther to customize calibration to fit your specific needs. If there is a specific range in which you use your device, we can add test points in addition to those recommended by the manufacturer to ensure accuracy for your application.
