Temperature switches are commonly used in various industrial applications to control specific functions. As with any measuring instrument, they need to be calibrated regularly to ensure they are working accurately and reliably.
Temperature measurement is one of the most common measurements in the process industry and the Pt100 temperature sensors are very common sensors. Every temperature measurement loop has a temperature sensor as the first component in the loop.
Calibration is extremely important. If instruments drift out of their specification range, the consequences can be disastrous for a plant, resulting in costly production downtime, safety issues and even inferior quality goods.
Traceable calibrations are critical for audits and quality control. In this video, Roy and Ned explain how to make a traceable calibration and what you need on your calibration certificate for audits.
