The accuracy of electronic devices naturally drifts over time due to use, stress, vibration, and other factors. While it is possible to minimize the change in your test equipment, it is impossible to eliminate drift completely. That is exactly why electronic test equipment calibration must be done at regular intervals as defined by the manufacturer or as you have defined based on the historical accuracy of your device.
By following this schedule you will be reducing measurement errors, ensuring consistency between measurements, increase your production yields, and assure accurate and reliable measurement.
Is it absolutely necessary to practice regular electronic test equipment calibration? Not if you’re looking for only a rough measurement. But in many other cases, accuracy of the result is crucial so regular calibration is a must. Many companies require both formal measurements and rough measurements for different situations; if that’s the case for you, it’s a best practice to ensure all equipment available for use is fully calibrated to ensure mistakes are not made if a technician or employee grabs the wrong piece of equipment. Yes it will require a bit more of an investment to have all of your equipment calibrated, but the cost is minimal compared to the consequences of a mistake that could lead to injury, unhappy customers, and your reputation.
