When it comes to measuring voltage, your Tektronix TDS 120 gets the job down. You can rely on the instrument for accuracy while doing your job. The problem is, your Tektronic TDS 120 can be knocked off calibration and then your work becomes compromised.
Using your Tektronix TDS 120, you can analyze waveforms for amplitude, frequency, rise time, time interval and distortion. These readings will likely not aid you, however, if your Tektronix TDS 120 is not regularly calibrated.
It becomes clear that your Tektronix TDS 120 has been knocked off calibration if the ambient temperature of the instrument changes by 5 degrees celsius or more. Getting your Tektronix TDS 120 calibrated optimizes the instrument’s accuracy for the ambient temperature.
Generally, over time your Tektronix TDS 120 will lose its accuracy and need to be re-calibrated. Frequent use around large vibrations can also cause your Tektronix TDS 120 to be knocked off balance. It is recommended that you calibrate the instrument once a year.
Overall, periodically calibrating your Tektronix TDS 120 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.
