What is the risk of not calibrating?
Calibration can be briefly described as an activity
where the instrument being tested is compared
to a known reference value. At the simplest
level, calibration is a comparison between
measurements – one of known magnitude or
correctness made or set with one device, and
another measurement made in as similar a way
as possible with a second device. The device with
the known or assigned correctness is called the
standard. The second device is the unit under
test or test instrument.
