Digital indicator is quite a generic term and there is a lot of flexibility when it comes to these instruments. Essentially a digital indicator is a tool that can be used across many different industries such as manufacturing or research/development to measure a wide variety of parameters such as current, voltage, temperature, or revolutions per minute (RPM). In addition to reporting on measured values the more advanced units can also be used for control or signalling purposes, industry technicians will often adapt digital indicators on a regular basis to meet the needs of specific applications.
Digital indicators are generally small portable devices, although many are built in or mounted on control panels which means they are normally programmed in situ by the technician responsible for monitoring that panel. Some of these units with communication systems attached can be programmed and monitored remotely via a PC or other device on the same network. It is important that any calibration service performed on these instruments considers the parameters being measured and actual set up of the system.
The in-situ nature of most digital indicators along with their connection to the larger control systems means that onsite calibration is essential. Calibrationhouse has over 15 years of experience when it comes to providing onsite digital indicator calibration services. We have carried out work across many different industries and applications so understand the nuances of most systems test and calibration requirements.
Site visits prior to calibrating these digital indicator systems are often needed to fully understand the systems and logistics of performing the calibration checks. Please contact us to discuss your requirements with one of our calibration experts.
