Transmitter calibration range

Calibration Q&A Temperature

Are there rules for calibration ranges? I have a transmitter with an operating range of 0-149 degrees Celsius. I asked for a calibration range up to 200, but my manager didn't agree. When I asked why, he said it's always been that way. Could you tell me if I need to follow this rule?

Expert’s answer: Transmitter calibration range

Here’s how to figure out what you can do about your transmitter calibration range:

When you buy a new device, it provides information about its measurement range. If you don’t request a certain calibration range, then the company will calibrate in a standard range.

Manufacturers use calibration bath that applies according to range and model. On the other hand, they’ll do their best to fill your request if you ask for a different range.

Now, most people ask for calibration related to their operating ranges. However, you can request a calibration range based on an ISO or an internal rule you have to follow.
