Aeroflex is a lead manufacturer of test and measurement equipment and microelectronic solutions. Calibration of all Aeroflex equipment is required to ensure that measurements and readings are accurate and continue to meet performance specifications. Similar to other measuring instruments, Aeroflex instruments need to be put on a set calibration interval.
A calibration interval for Aeroflex instruments must be established based off the following:
Instruments that are used regularly, especially under heavy loads, tend to drift faster than those that are not used frequently. It’s important to note how much an instrument is used when making a calibration interval for the device.
With instrument age comes performance drifting. In some cases, when an instrument has begun to drift due to age, the device can be recalibrated and then used. It is in best interest to invest in a replacement instrument after it has aged significantly.
Each of these factors should be considered when creating a calibration interval for Aeroflex instruments. One other factor that should be taken into consideration when establishing an interval is the manufacturer recommendation. Each instrument will have a personalized interval that is recommended by Aeroflex themselves.
By combining the above factors and calibrating your Aeroflex instruments regularly, risk of unreliability and inaccuracy are reduced.
