Importance of Calibration

ISO/IEC 17025 accredited calibration lab e2b

e2b calibration provides calibration to all measurement instruments to monitor critical points related to the safety of aviation equipment. e2b calibration is an ISO/IEC 17025 & ANSI NCSL Z-540-1-1994 accredited calibration and repair laboratory providing a full scope of NIST TRACEABLE services for calibration, test, and measurement instruments.

e2b calibration utilizes a calibration method which establishes, under the specified condition, the relationship between values indicated by measurement equipment and the corresponding values realized using the standards of agencies such as the FAA. This ensures the measurements taken by the monitoring devices meet the standards, accuracy and reliability of accreditation they follow.


Identification & Control of Measuring Equipment

As per international standard, all measurement equipment needs to be documented in a list and market with its calibration requirements such as calibration due date and method of calibration. To avoid all the problem of record-keeping and record retrieval e2b calibration provides the option to use its cloud-based asset management system where you can find all required information related to the calibrated equipment, as well as get notifications on their calibration due dates.


Difference between Accuracy Check & Calibration

Routine accuracy checks and periodic calibration of monitoring devices are verification activities used to ensure that the measurements taken by the monitoring devices are accurate and reliable. Accuracy checks and calibration are fundamental for the safety of the flight and the preventive maintenance plan. If monitoring devices do not provide accurate measurements, then monitoring results are unreliable.

Calibration and accuracy checks are different but related concepts. Ideally, a measurement device is both accurate (correct or true) and precise (repeatable or reproducible). The accuracy and precision of measurement are usually established by measuring against a traceable reference standard. Calibration involves determining that the value of each reading on a particular measuring instrument is correct, by measurement against a known calibrated instrument or comparison with two known standards.


Certification Record Keeping

Records must be kept documenting the results of accuracy checks and calibrations of monitoring devices. These records must be reviewed by an expert who has the required training background and the necessary experience to evaluate the results and determine if all monitoring instruments are accurate and properly calibrated. e2b calibration offers a digitized method of keeping and maintaining these records in the cloud and free of charge to their customers.  For more information on Anytime Assets or any of our other service offerings, please contact e2b calibration.
