DKD DKD Calibration

Calibration is carried out on the basis of generally recognized methods and using measurement equipment traceable to national standards.

ISO 17025 calibration or DAkkS calibration is a guarantee of the reliability of your measurement results and serves as the technical basis for measurement and test equipment inspection as part of quality assurance measures.

  • Description

    The following services are included in calibrations performed by burster:

    1. Assessing whether your test and measuring equipment is suitable for calibration
    2. Performing a calibration
    3. Documenting the calibration with a DAkkS calibration certificate
    4. Labeling the calibration items in accordance with ISO 17025 or German DKD-5 requirements.

    If we find during our calibration-suitability check that an adjustment is needed, we perform this adjustment prior to calibration in close consultation with you.

  • FAQ

    1. Which products can burster calibrate?
      As part of the accreditation, burster can calibrate and adjust all burster products. Calibration and adjustment of all sensors is performed either in burster laboratory or at a partner facility.
      Additionally, burster can calibrate sensors and equipment from other manufacturers after coordinating technical details.
    2. How long does a calibration take?
      Typically, a standard calibration takes 1 to 2 weeks after the test items are received and pending technical questions are resolved.
    3. What does a calibration involve?
      Every product is subject to an assessment of suitability for calibration prior to its calibration. If we find out that adjustments are needed, we contact you and after you go-ahead, we make the necessary adjustments and then repeat the calibration. All calibrations are performed in accordance with internationally standardized methods.
    4. What quality standards are met by a DKD calibration?
      With a DKD calibration you can be confident of compliance with all the quality systems used in the automotive, aerospace, pharmaceutical, medical and defence industries, such as ISO 9001, ISO 16494, ISO 13485, ISO 10012.
    5. What is "suitability for calibration"?
      When you send burster a product for calibration, we check prior to the actual calibration, that your unit is working properly electrically.
    6. What is the difference between calibration and adjustment?
      Calibration establishes the measurement range and accuracy of your instrument or test equipment. If it is found during calibration, that the measurement ranges or accuracy can no longer meet the product specifications guaranteed by burster, then it may be possible to adjust a unit so that it complies again with the promised specification.
