Cal­i­bra­tion of Your IFTA Prod­ucts

The cal­i­bra­tion of your IFTA de­vices on a reg­u­lar basis guar­an­tees ac­cu­rate and re­li­able mea­sure­ment re­sults. Based on our qual­i­ty guide­lines fol­low­ing the ISO 9001 stan­dard, we rec­om­mend an an­nu­al cal­i­bra­tion cycle.

When does a Cal­i­bra­tion of Your IFTA Prod­ucts Make Sense?

  • Do you have sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ences in the mea­sure­ment re­sults for some de­vices?

  • Do you have strong­ly chang­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions?

  • Has your mea­sure­ment de­vice been out of use for a long time?

  • Do you want to en­sure that your mea­sure­ment de­vice is pre­pared for up­com­ing im­por­tant mea­sure­ments?

  • Does your qual­i­ty man­age­ment re­quire reg­u­lar cal­i­bra­tion?

In these cases, a fac­to­ry cal­i­bra­tion may be the right so­lu­tion for you.


Why Should I Cal­i­brate My Mea­sure­ment Equip­ment?

Cal­i­bra­tion of your mea­sure­ment equip­ment is not re­quired by law. For many com­pa­nies, how­ev­er, the need for cal­i­bra­tion aris­es from qual­i­ty man­age­ment. Ir­re­spec­tive of this, cal­i­bra­tion brings also con­crete ben­e­fits: Cor­rect­ly func­tion­ing mea­sure­ment equip­ment avoids, for ex­am­ple, waste of ma­te­ri­al, re­call of prod­ucts of poor qual­i­ty or en­sures the safe­ty and health of per­sons. As a man­u­fac­tur­er of high-qual­i­ty mea­sure­ment equip­ment, IFTA rec­om­mends reg­u­lar cal­i­bra­tion of all mea­sur­ing de­vices, as this en­sures trace­abil­i­ty to the SI base units, keeps them in per­fect tech­ni­cal con­di­tion, and thus cre­ates the pre­req­ui­site for achiev­ing re­li­able mea­sure­ment re­sults.



IFTA of­fers fac­to­ry cal­i­bra­tions for IFTA mea­sure­ment sys­tems and uses mea­sur­ing equip­ment that is reg­u­lar­ly cal­i­brat­ed by a DAkkS-ac­cred­it­ed lab­o­ra­to­ry based on ISO/IEC 17025.

Scope of De­liv­ery of the IFTA Fac­to­ry Cal­i­bra­tion

Cal­i­bra­tion, in­spec­tion and, if nec­es­sary, ad­just­ment and re­pair of your mea­sure­ment sys­tems is car­ried out in our in-house lab­o­ra­to­ry by ex­pe­ri­enced staff. As an ISO 9001:2015 cer­ti­fied com­pa­ny you can count on high­est qual­i­ty. In de­tail you will re­ceive the fol­low­ing ser­vices:

  • Fac­to­ry cal­i­bra­tion with mea­sure­ment equip­ment that is reg­u­lar­ly cal­i­brat­ed by a DAkkS-ac­cred­it­ed lab­o­ra­to­ry on the basis of ISO/IEC 17025
  • Cal­i­bra­tion cer­tifi­cate for doc­u­men­ta­tion of the cal­i­bra­tion re­sults
  • Check of the hard­ware as well as ac­ces­sories, such as power sup­plies, etc.
  • Any nec­es­sary ad­just­ments are in­clud­ed
  • Should any re­pairs be nec­es­sary, we will con­sult you be­fore­hand

  • Soft­ware check

  • If avail­able, you will re­ceive soft­ware up­dates (if the li­cense agree­ment in­cludes free up­dates)

Note: If you need a cal­i­bra­tion trace­able ac­cord­ing to the ISO/IEC 17025 stan­dard, please con­tact an ac­cred­it­ed lab­o­ra­to­ry (in Ger­many lab­o­ra­to­ries are ac­cred­it­ed by the DAkkS).

Ad­van­tages of the IFTA Fac­to­ry Cal­i­bra­tion


In­crease ac­cu­ra­cy and re­li­a­bil­i­ty of your mea­sure­ment re­sults


Com­pared to ISO/IEC 17025 cal­i­bra­tions, fac­to­ry cal­i­bra­tions are more cost-ef­fec­tive


Our ser­vice tech­ni­cians will check hard- & soft­ware of your IFTA prod­uct, ad­just­ments in­clu­sive


You will re­ceive proof of the fac­to­ry cal­i­bra­tion in form of a cer­tifi­cate
