Calibration of digital multimeters and other instrumentation helps to ensure consistency and accuracy. Where accuracy and reliability are paramount, calibration should be factored in when buying a multimeter. We use the leading brand of instruments, equipment, service and software used to calibrate and safeguard electrical systems or technical measuring instruments.
All multimeters tend to lose accuracy (or ‘drift’) as they age, though this is less of an issue today compared with older technologies. Therefore, multimeter calibration should be periodically undertaken. A typical period of calibration is one year, although the specifications of more exacting devices may have 90 days. It ultimately depends on the importance of the task at hand and the intended accuracy. However, a rarely calibrated Fluke multimeter will likely be more accurate than a non-fluke meter that is less frequently calibrated. They tend to hold their specs well, with common reports of 20-year-old flukes still delivering the same tight accuracy.
