Types of calibration

[object Object]

Calibration services of various types are available to match the application and the requirements. You yourself can choose the measurement uncertainty you require, or you can let us advise you: Kistler is your experienced and accredited partner for calibrations.

With our calibration services, sensors from Kistler and third parties deliver maximum measurement accuracy.

Service calibrations are available at many Kistler centers throughout the world. This type of calibration includes documentation of the measurement values for the instrument's most important parameters. 

A service calibration by Kistler is based on the measuring ranges stated in the relevant data sheet. We will also be glad to perform custom calibrations covering additional ranges – to take account of preload and other requirements, for example.

Measurands available for traceable calibrations

Kistler's calibration laboratories offer traceable calibrations for numerous measurands including force, torque, rotation angle, acceleration and pressure, and also for electrical measurands. In addition, we can calibrate wheel force transducers, multicomponent force dynamometers, rotating torque sensors and many other complex systems.

We will be glad to assist with your specific inquiries and provide additional information.
