How Deflategate is Impacted by Calibration

deflategateThe scandal of Deflategate will go down in history as one of the most well-known and covered NFL scandals in history. Tom Brady, quarterback of the Patriots, was accused of deflating footballs in order to win an A.F.C championship game against the Colts in January last year. Although this is a very interesting topic to discuss from a sports point of view, it is also a very interesting topic in the world of metrology and calibration.

Why Calibrate a Fluke-179?

Fluke-179s are relied on to give us accuracy and reliability. But how reliable can these instruments be if we aren’t ensuring that they’re calibrated on a regular schedule? It is critical that the Fluke-179 instrument is calibrated periodically to meet industry standards.

Outside conditions such as temperature, humidity and environment can affect the impact of the Fluke-179. Without regular calibration, the range of error increases and standardization is compromised.

Time, in general, can affect your Fluke-179. All circuits will drift over time, impacting the assurance that your instrument will continue to work within the quality parameters you have come to expect.

From an investment standpoint, continually calibrating your Fluke-179 will keep your instrument from depreciating in value over time.

Overall, periodically calibrating your Fluke-179 is the best choice when working within a standard. e2b calibration is an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited calibration and repair laboratory providing a full scope of services (traceable to NIST) for most popular calibration, test, and measurement instruments. Services are provided in our climate-controlled, state-of-the-art laboratory with on-site services in Chardon, Mentor, Willoughby, Cleveland, Akron, Cincinnati, Columbus and across the country. Local pick-up and delivery available on request.

Calibrating Your T&D RTR 503

Using your T&D RTR 503 gives you accurate and reliable readings on temperature and humidity, all while being able to record on PC. Whether you’re in applications, regulatory compliance, HVAC balancing, warehouse mapping or process controls, the T&D RTR 503 is easy and reliable. However, if you’re on the go or often working around heavy machinery, that reliability becomes compromised.
