Accurate data with sensors and measurement systems calibrated by experts
Get accurate data with calibrated measurement instruments
In-house calibration laboratory for reliable metrology instruments
Unlike other sales companies in the metrology and sensor sector, at Althen you benefit from our in-house calibration laboratory. This is where we test the products we sell and set up our in-house products according to your specifications. For the physical properties of pressure, force and tilt, we can also offer certified factory calibrations according to ISO 9001 for sensors and measuring instruments. Measured data are compared exclusively with traceable measuring equipment.
Calibration laboratory at Althen
Our Calibration Offer
We calibrate force sensors with measuring ranges up to 120 kN tension/compression.
We calibrate pressure sensors with measuring ranges of up to 700 bar.
We calibrate inclinometers with measuring ranges up to +-70 degrees.
Linear Position Sensors
We calibrate displacement sensors with measuring ranges from 0 to 100 mm.
Frequencies: 0.1 Hz - 20 kHz
Accelerations: 0.1 m/s² - 250 m/s
Calibration of vibration transducers and calibrators (Vibration Transducers / Shakers) and Inertial Measurement Units (IMU)
Voltage: 1 mV - 500 V
Thermocouples type J, K, T, E, R, S, B, C, XK, BP, L, U, N
Resistors (resistance thermometers PT100, PT1000)
Calibration of measuring chains
If the sensor is part of a measuring chain, we need the measuring amplifiers belonging to the sensor from you for a professional calibration. If it is not possible to send in the entire measuring chain, we use our own measuring amplifiers for the calibration in our laboratory.
Calibration of Railway Measurement Systems
We offer professional calibrations for
Tools for measuring wheel diameter (FDK, FDK-BT, FDK-124) as well as
Tools for measuring wheel profiles (FDKP-Series)
Testing tailored especially for your sensors and measurement instruments
Ensure your measurement accuracy once a year
Be sure measurement deviations are detected and corrected on time. On request, we can regularly inspect your measuring equipment, then repair or adjust it if necessary. That keeps your instruments functional and working reliably for the long term. You can use our service even if your metrology systems are not from our company. Bring your calibration requests to us. We will be happy to advise you and provide you with a custom quotation.
A calibration certificate (also calibration certificate or calibration report) certifies the results of control measurements performed under specified conditions. It presents the deviation of the calibration result (deviation and calibration uncertainty) in the form of a calibration function, calibration curve, calibration table or calibration diagram.
The specification of standards enables traceability to national and international standards.
