Replaceable Temperature Sensor
Dickson's Replaceable Sensors are the easiest and quickest option for re-calibrating a compatible monitoring device. When your instrument is due for calibration, simply order the appropriate Replaceable Sensor with the type of calibration you need. You'll receive a new sensor in the mail and you simply detach the old one, replace it with the new one, and then you're done!
It is that simple! No more sending in your entire device for calibration and being without it for days.
Why should I calibrate?
All instruments lose accuracy over time due to normal usage and the environmental conditions to which they are exposed.
How often should I calibrate?
For most applications, the recommended calibration interval is every twelve months.
What is NIST Calibration?
NIST stands for the National Institute for Standards and Technology. This organization is responsible for maintaining the master for different measurements, such as the standard "foot", standard, "second", or standard "pound". NIST also maintains the standard for temperature, humidity and pressure.
NIST Traceable means that the measuring standard can be traced directly back to the master standard maintained by the NIST organization.
NIST-Traceable does not tell you the measurement accuracy of a metrologty service in any detail. Only metrology services that can document their ISO 17025 standard provided data on their best measurement uncertainty.
