Traceable calibration of noise & vibration instrumentation safeguards quality of measurements and eliminates costs associated with unreliable equipment
In a move to safeguard the quality of measurements and eliminate the costs associated with unreliable monitoring equipment, Bedford-based AcSoft (www.acsoft.co.uk) is offering traceable calibration of a wide range of noise and vibration instrumentation with a five-day lead time as standard.
AcSoft’s state-of-the-art acoustic calibration laboratory is capable of calibrating a variety of noise and vibration equipment from its subsidiaries, Svantek UK and GRAS UK, as well as instruments from other manufacturers.
The laboratory calibrates sound level meters, microphones, preamplifiers, calibrators and pistonphones, accelerometers (frequency response and sensitivity), analysers and dosimeters.
The company uses the goCA calibration systems from GRAS for calibration of microphones, sound level calibrators and pistonphones.
For calibration of sound and vibration meters, AcSoft uses a bespoke calibration system from Svantek Poland. A full factory calibration is performed on Svantek products ensuring all new instruments have a fresh calibration certificate every time.
A bespoke shaker system from Data Physics is used for sensitivity calibration of accelerometers over a range of frequencies. A Dytran 3123AK reference accelerometer set is used.
AcSoft’s equipment is located in an air conditioned, purpose-built laboratory and is calibrated to nationally traceable standards. Return shipping is free of charge – within the UK – and the company can also arrange collection of kit, if required.
