Calibration
Software Platforms
For trouble free operation the ValSuite™ and ETS Suite
software are available offering safe, intuitive and easy
execution of the pre-defined operation procedures, all
of which are FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliant.
In-House Calibration at Your Facility
To ensure accurate measurements it is essential to
perform calibrations of probes and sensors on a regular
basis. When setting up your own calibration laboratory
it is important to use appropriate instrumentation and
optimal room facilities.
A perfect
solution for
in-house and
factory
calibrations
For temperature calibrations the ValSuite™ Pro
calibration and validation software can be integrated
with Ellab Dry Blocks, LiquiCal™ baths and the Ellab
Temperature Standard (ETS) for a complete and
automated calibration. Ellab calibration equipment has
a temperature range of -100 °C to +350 °C (optionally
to + 700 °C) with accuracy up to ±0.005 °C. The software
will auto-ramp the bath/dry block along with verify
that your defined stability criteria is met. If necessary,
the software is also capable of adjusting your sensors
and probes as well.
For pressure transducers, the nVision pressure calibrator
together with ValSuite™ software offers manual
calibration of TrackSense® Pro sensors as well as E-Val
Pro/E-Val Flex sensors with accuracy up to ±0.025%
of readings.
For conductivity sensors, verification concentrations
of KOH and NAOH (tablets in distilled water) together
with ValSuite™ software offer manual verification/
calibration of TrackSense® Pro sensors.
DANAK Accredited Factory Calibration at Ellab
All Ellab validation equipment is factory calibrated at
our highly sophisticated laboratories offering optional
DANAK accredited calibration services for temperature,
pressure and humidity.
The Ellab metrology lab facilities are among the
finest in the industry since Ellab believes the starting
point for any measurement is to use a reproducible,
traceable and highly precise system of standards. This
system is implemented in accordance to the EN17025
norm (general requirements for the competence of
testing and calibration laboratories). Ellab can assure
full confidence in the data generated by the
calibration procedure. Ellab is further demonstrating
that a prescribed level of technical competence to
perform specific calibration activities is achieved
through ongoing accreditation by a recognized
accreditation (notified) body such as DANAK.
ValSuite™ Pro - Ellab’s highly sophisticated and very
advanced validation software package with integrated
calibration functionality offers manual, semi-automatic
and full-automatic calibration of the Ellab temperature
probes and sensors. The ValSuite™ software documents
and guides you through the complete calibration
process. The database structure in the software enables
complete documentation and procedural control for
the operators. Templates allow detailed test criteria to
be pre-set by the assigned administrator. This ensures
accurate documentation and correct implementation of
required procedures for consistently repeated tests.
In the ValSuiteTM Software menu it is now even possible
to download calibration certificates (factory calibration) directly to your desktop.
Once programmed and saved as template(s), workload is
reduced immensely resulting in huge time savings.
Using the intuitive menu, all data necessary for software
calibration is processed. Offset values are generated
and stored in the software. For TrackSense® Pro wireless
loggers, ETI and E-Val Pro / E-Val Flex intelligent cable
sensors a factory calibration routine is recommended
on a regular basis, and user alerts can be programmed
into the memory for smart handling.
ETS Suite - Ellab offers an easy to use software to run
one or multiple ETS units for manual calibration of
external temperature sensors. ETS Suite can be used
to run reference standard comparisons if multiple ETS
units are being used. It can also be used to calibrate
built-in sensors (i.e. control sensors in an autoclave).
ETS Suite is also an integrated part of ValSuiteTM.
The overall result is assurance that our laboratory is
capable of producing data that is accurate, traceable
and reproducible. At the same time our ISO 9001 quality
management system is aimed at improving our ability
to consistently produce valid results. Certificates
issued from the accredited calibration will include a
complete uncertainty budget for evaluation.
Software
Ellab is determined to offer easy and available
calibration services and has throughout recent years
established calibration laboratories at a number of
Ellab distributors and subsidiaries.

ValSuite™ Pro
Ellab Reference and Verification Instruments
Calibration
ValSuite™ Pro and Plus software allow for manual, semiautomatic or full-automatic pre and post calibrations
of probes ensuring consistency, efficiency and proper
documentation. Using the intuitive menus all data
necessary for calibration is processed, generating
offset values that are stored in the probes or software
database.
Calibration Set-up
The ValSuite™ Pro software, in combination with the ETS,
LiquiCal™ baths or Dry Blocks provide an automatic set-up,
which simplifies the calibration routine eliminating
errors and saving time. Ellab calibration and validation
software uses a point-to-point method and can handle
multiple points using interpolation.
When choosing semi-automatic calibration, an ETS
is to be connected to the PC. During full-automatic
calibrations, both the ETS and LiquiCal™ bath or Ellab
Dry Block are controlled.
Advanced
software allows
for automatic
execution
saving time
actual values and deviations in the calibration report.
Equipment Management Tools
ValSuite™ Pro also offers two different calibration
management tools:
• Temperature Standard Manager (TSM).
• Sensor Adjustment Manager (SAM).
Based on a database, TSM keeps track of used equipment
in your calibration routines i.e. instrument type, serial
number, manufacturer, calibration date, calibration expiry
and certificate number. SAM provides complementary
information on previously calibrated E-Val Pro/
E-Val Flex and TrackSense® Pro sensors. A calibration report is automatically generated which shows
overall calibration results. The found offset values
are linked directly to the ID number of sensor and will
be taken into account whenever the sensor is used
in future measurements. All data is transferred and
displayed in the calibration report.
The following performance criteria can be set:
• Maximum allowed fluctuation/time for LiquiCal™ baths and Ellab Dry Block.
• Holding time.
• Maximum allowed fluctuation for ETS.
• Maximum sensor temperature deviation and pass time.

Post calibration of sensors
The ETS is a robust , completely self-contained
measurement system with integrated but also separated
electronics for calibration and temperature A/D
conversions which allows for extremely accurate
temperature calibrations.
The traceable ETS allows for temperature measurements
by converting resistance into temperature using its builtin algorithms.
When connected to the ValSuiteTM software the bath/
dryblock and ETS provide a perfect automatic setup. This
saves time and allows for a convenient calibration.
Using different standard solutions with defined
concentrations it is possible to perform manual
verification of conductivity sensors. After an initial
rinse in carbon dioxide-free distilled water the sensor
is placed in the standard solution(s) defined by the
pharmacopeia or from certified producer. Avoiding air
in the cell during this method provides accurate
measurements but a regular factory calibration is
highly recommended.
Pressure Reference Instrument
nVision Pressure Calibrator is an intrinsically safe,
handheld device for generating and recording pressure
up to 8 Bar. The device is portable enough to complete
pressure calibrations anywhere. Readings have an
accuracy up to ±0.025% and are fully temperature
compensated, requiring no additional accuracy offsets
for operating temperatures between -20 °C to +50 °C.
Working as a secondary standard, the ETS is available in
3 different versions and comes with an accredited calibration certificate. Furthermore, an optional ETS display
unit for stand-alone use is available.
The unit includes a calibration certificate with test data
at 5 different temperatures and the system is delivered
with a pump, connection fittings and adaptors for Ellab
pressure sensors. An aluminum protection suitcase is
also supplied.

LiquiCal™
LiquiCal™ Solutions
LiquiCal™ is a range of high performance liquid baths
used for high precision temperature calibrations. The
baths can be controlled via the ValSuite™ software
allowing for an automated calibration and ramp control.
It can also be used as a stand-alone unit. LiquiCal™
provides high temperature stability along with a large
immersion depth, fast temperature change and quiet run.
LiquiCal™ Features
The models cover temperatures from -80 °C to 300 °C.
The LiquiCal™ LL, SL and HL all have the same exterior
dimensions, bath openings and liquid filling volume.
The LiquiCal™ SM/HM micro baths are smaller in size
facilitating mobility. On the LiquiCal™ LL, SL and HL
baths a convenient overflow reservoir captures any
excess fluid that results from fluid expansion.The bath’s
15.9 L (4.2 gallon) tank can easily be emptied by drain
when needed. Also convenient fixtures to hold either
sensors or loggers are available.
Liquids for LiquiCal™ Baths
To obtain optimal temperature stability and homogeniety
in the calibration zone, liquids with the lowest possible
