The HP 5328A Universal Counter takes frequency, period, multiple point average, time interval, time interval average, totalize, ratio, voltage and electronically controlled totalize measurements. All these measurements can expected to be accurate and reliable. However, this equipment has been around for a long time. If it hasn’t been calibrated lately it should be.
Calibration ensures that your HP 5328A is working properly and taking accurate measurements. Over time, your HP 5328A can be thrown out of calibration. It is recommended by the manufacturer that the HP 5328A is calibrated four times a year.
To ensure that your HP 5328A is working properly, regular inspections can help to determine when your instrument is in need of calibration. The HP 5328A should be checked for dust, moisture, grease and foreign matter, because all of these can throw off the instrument.
Your HP 5328A should be operating within ±0.5 accuracy, if not, it’s time for calibration.
