SKS Automaatio's factory calibration services related to SKS Sensors® temperature sensor manufacturing

  • Factory calibration tasks are executed with two calibrating ovens, which can perform on temperature range -25...+660 °C.
  • Factory calibration is recommended to be done in two measuring points minimum.
  • More calibration points can be used depending on the calibrating temperature range.
  • Factory calibration can be executed for both RTD and TC sensors.
  • The minimum length of the sensor to be calibrated is 255 mm. This limitation doesn't apply on cable sensors.
  • Factory calibration can be executed for sensors with outer diameter of 3 mm, 4 mm, 6 mm, 8 mm or 10 mm.
  • The calibration devices are able to work with sensor itself or with sensor and transmitter connected together.
  • For factory calibration the customer gets a calibration certificate including customer data, product data and calibration results as measuring data table and graph.
  • If the factory calibration is not an adequate proof of measuring value deviation, we can - on customers behalf - have the sensors (and transmitters) send to an accredited laboratory for a third party laboratory calibration.
