Equipment Calibration and Repair
Calibration services are designed to help the users of precision instruments achieve the highest possible level of measurement quality and productivity. The Process of calibration includes using a traceable reference device. Calibration is performed to manufacturers and specified industry standards with instruments calibrated and traceable in an unbroken chain to NIST
We are a full-service calibration laboratory, providing quality controlled support, calibration, and equipment repair. We are staffed by qualified and skilled electronics technicians who can offer you the benefit of experience, as well as valuable technical support. Our professional team is expert enough to calibrate any device.
We calibrate and certify a wide range of instruments ranging from thermometers and hygrometers to pressure gauges and a wide array of electrical and electronic test equipment. Our calibrations are traceable to a primary standard or another NIST/NRC-traceable instrument.

Who Created the Standards of Measure and Why?
NIST is the National Institute of Standards and Technology U.S. Department of Commerce, a physical science laboratory that is part of the US Department of Commerce. It was founded in 1901 and is one of the nation’s oldest physical science laboratories. Its main purpose and mission are to develop and maintain measurement standards. As part of that mission, NIST provides certified standard reference materials (SRMs) allowing science and industry to achieve more accurate measurements.
The most familiar component of NIST is the Office of Weights and Measures (OWM), formerly known as the “Office of Construction of Standard Weights and Measures” remains the oldest office at NIST. The OWM’s mission is to ensure national uniformity in legal metrology and to deliver standards and services to achieve equity in the commercial marketplace.
Reports of Calibration/Test Results/Traceability
Currentechnologies will provide you with a certificate, specific to each piece of equipment, indicating that your product has been tested against reference standards and/or tested with NIST-traceable instruments and that it meets or exceeds its specifications. The certificate states that the product was found to be within its stated tolerance of accuracy. It also documents the environmental conditions at the time of testing, and which equipment or standard reference materials were used.
Calibration Interval and Re-certification according to NIST:
In general, NIST does not require or recommend any set recalibration interval for measuring instruments, devices, or standards. Specific recalibration intervals depend on a number of factors including:
- Accuracy requirements set by customers
- Requirements set by contract or regulation
- Inherent stability of the specific instrument or device
- Environmental factors that may affect the stability
Yearly Equipment Calibration
Currentechnologies recommends equipment re-calibration every 12 months. Depending on your usage and requirements, you may choose to have your equipment checked and re-certified by us more frequently. The time between re-certifications is called the calibration interval.
Also, please note that although the measurement results provided on the certificate can be considered traceable to NIST reference standards at the time the measurements were performed, we cannot certify that those measurement results are valid after the instrument has been returned to you and placed into service. You or the responsible party in your organization must have an appropriate internal measurement assurance program in place to assure the continued validity of these measurement results. This program should also specify a calibration interval appropriate for your application.
Upon Calibration of your equipment, you will receive:
- A certificate including all test data and equipment identification, NIST Standards used, and a recommended recertification date (if equipment passed).
- Your equipment will be labeled with either a pass or fail sticker with dates tested.
