Our goal is to provide a range of services aimed to meet your vibration calibration needs. Our calibration services for vibration are completed via the back-to-back method according to ISO 16063-21:2016-01 and the shock excitation to ISO 16063-22:2015-04. All calibrations include a calibration certificate with traceability to the national standard.
PCB Europe’s precision Calibration Laboratory D-K-19664-01-00 is accredited by the Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS) (former: German Accreditation Body GmbH (DKD)). Calibration services are offered in accordance with
ISO/IEC 17025:2018 for the calibration of ICP® and charge accelerometers from the frequency range of 5 Hz to 15 kHz
and ICP® or charge Impact Hammer.
The original factory calibration service code of PCB sensors and signal conditioners is found on the individual spec sheet for each piece of equipment. It is located under 'Supplied Accessories' on the bottom right corner of the spec sheet.
If you cannot locate your service code, or would like to discuss special calibration requirements, please contact one of our Calibration Engineers at +49 2433 44444062. We also offer calibrate services for similar sensors from other sensor manufacturers.
In order to deliver calibration services of the highest quality, PCB Europe’s Calibration Laboratory is equipped with a calibration system and software from The Modal Shop, Inc., a PCB Group Company. For more than 25 years, The Modal Shop has served as a system and service leader in the metrology community. With these tools, PCB Europe is here to be your partner in a world class calibration program.
The system is composed by an Air Bearing Shaker (Model K394B30/B31) and a Data Acquisition Workstation (Model 9155). The TMS software controls the system, takes readings and creates the calibration certificate.
Given the expanded measurement uncertainty, result from the standard uncertainty of measurement multiplying it by the coverage factor k=2.
It was determined according to the EA-4/02 M:2013. The value of the measurand is with a confidence level of 95% in the associated value interval.
For the calibration of ICP® and charge accelerometers:
When considering calibration intervals, it is important to ask “What is the cost of failure?”. For measurement confidence and quality, PCB Europe recommends an annual recalibration of all equipment. This regular practice serves as a means to ensure safe and accurate operation of your key instrumentation.
PCB Europe relies on ISO/IEC 17025:2018 calibrations. These calibrations are of the highest quality with lowest measurement uncertainty for a calibration system.
The ISO/IEC 17025:2018 calibration provides:
By calibrating the test equipment, functioning and accuracy is proofed and documented in the calibration certificate.
Repair or adjustment is not carried out during a calibration.
In addition to the services offered directly from PCB Europe, calibrations can also be performed directly by PCB Piezotronics Headquarter in Depew, NY (USA) via PCB Europe. With over 45 years of expertise in sensor manufacturing and service, PCB is accredited by the A2LA accreditation body, member of ILAC.
These services are available for:
Prices and delivery time are available upon request from PCB Europe.
