A number of measurement devices come equipped with internal or user calibration functions. Allowing the user to calibrate their measurement equipment on a more frequent basis gives greater control over the quality process; however, with great control comes great responsibility. There are a number of considerations that must be taken into account to ensure that the operator is not invalidating the certified calibration of their equipment by utilizing such functions.
In this month’s article, we explore the things to consider before choosing to utilize the user or internal calibration feature on your device.
