A frequency meter is often more commonly known as a frequency counter, which is a device used by technicians to measure the frequency of an electrical signal over a specific period of time. Prior to the introduction of the digital frequency counter of the type we see today, the measurement of frequencies was significantly more cumbersome and a lot less accurate. These devices are now high precision and manufactured with tight specifications by renowned test equipment companies like Keysight, Thurlby Thandar, Tektronix and Rohde & Schwarz.
Although frequency counters may appear to be standalone instruments, there are a number of different types. Each one is suited to its own application and has its relevant advantages and disadvantages.
The importance of these devices in the electrical testing and monitoring fields means regular calibration is essential as drift in measurement accuracy is always a possibility. Calibrationhouse offers a frequency counter calibration service both onsite at customer premises and at our Durham based laboratory, please contact us to discuss your individual device as we have a frequency test limit of 1GHz.
