Electrical calibration
Electrical calibration
Electrical calibration refers to the process of verifying the performance of,
or adjusting, any instrument that measures, sources, or tests electrical
parameters. This discipline is usually referred to as dc and low frequency
ac electrical metrology. Principal parameters include voltage, current,
resistance, inductance, capacitance, time and frequency. Other parameters,
including electrical power and phase, are also in this segment of metrology.
Ratiometric comparisons of similar parameters are often performed to
compare a known parameter to an unknown similar parameter.
Electrical calibration involves the use of precise devices that evaluate the
performance of key properties for other devices called units under test
(UUTs). Because these precise devices have thoroughly known performance
characteristics compared to the UUT, performance evaluation and/or
calibration adjustment of the UUT to identify or minimize errors is possible.
Typically, the performance of such precision devices should be four or more
times better than the UUT.
These precision devices fall into two broad categories. Electrical signal
sources are often referred to as either calibrators or standards. Precision
measurement devices are often classified as reference digital multimeters,
measurement standards, or ratio bridges.
