Calibration Laboratory

DAkkS certification/ DAkkS accreditation

The tecsis calibration laboratory has DAkkS accreditation, while DKD accreditation was obtained back in 1981 for the first time.

DKD calibration or DKD accreditation is still very often mentioned nowadays. However, since 2010 this has been the responsibility of the German Accreditation Body (DAkkS).

Today, tecsis therefore works together with Germany's National Metrology Institute (PTB) and the DAkkS. The DAkkS accreditation must be renewed every 5 years. How you can rest assured:

The tecsis calibration laboratory offers the highest quality – and best experience.

DAkkS accreditation:

Technical background Calibration in metrology means: tecsis calibration services measures and documents the reliably reproducible determination of the deviation of one measuring instrument from another. In doing so, the other instrument is designated as the standard.

  • The calibration is made by a direct comparison of the measured values of the calibration object against those of the reference- or working standard. This is traced back directly or indirectly to a national standard.
  • For its reference standard, tecsis calibration services uses long-term-stable pressure gauges such as piston manometers. These are calibrated at the PTB at regular intervals and granted a certificate. The expanded measurement uncertainty under reference conditions (standard acceleration of gravity, 20°C) is declared therein.
  • With calibration outside of the reference conditions, tecsis calibration services performs a correction to the pressure calculation. On account of influencing variables, measurement uncertainties are to be attributed to these corrections. We regard these as further contributions in the measurement uncertainty budget.
