To ensure the reliability of the measurement results, it is advisable to check and calibrate your equipment regularly. This is important for measuring instruments with high requirements for accurate measurement results.

Calibration and adjustment
Calibration is the comparison of a system or device with a standard to determine any abnormalities. The re-adjustment of a system or device is called adjustment. The desired calibration interval can be determined by you. We recommend to calibrate your instrument once in a year.

This service provides the guarantee to have reliable measurement results. By buying an instrument, you must sign up for OBSERCARE Plus. After the registration your data will be added into our database and you will receive automatically a request (via e-mail or mail) to provide your instrument for periodic calibration/inspection.

An appointment must be made with us to schedule the calibration for your instrument. Observator pursues a short return time up to 5 working days, on the condition that the operations can be carried out by our own laboratory and if there are no major repairs required.
