How Certain are Your Measurements?

Strictly speaking, even a measuring instrument manufactured to the highest standards still lacks a certain ingredient. Regular calibration of all measurement equipment is the key to maintaining the original performance and accuracy.

We recommend calibration of measurement instruments as a basic rule every two years.

The Lufft Calibration Service

Calibrations Services for Lufft Sensors

Calibrations Services for Lufft Sensors

Lufft’s laboratory has been accredited by DKD / DAkkS since 1999.

That’s why for us - in addition to manufacturing precision - calibration technology also represents a longstanding tradition.

We offer an Instrument Calibration service for almost all models and sensors of environmental measurement equipment for detection of temperature, relative humidity, air pressure and flow. Our team of qualified technicians working in our in-house laboratory ensure that your instruments are performing as they should be and conform to all relevant manufacturer standards.

We will issue you with a detailed calibration certificate outlining the calibration results of your equipment. All our lab certificates are traceable to national and international standards. With a typical five day turn around, we offer you a fast, reliable and competitive service for all your sensor equipment calibration needs.

Our Scope of Services:

  • Issuing of certificates on supply of new products

  • Online certificate management

  • Calibration and adjustment of third party products

  • Hire of calibrated equipment during the calibration validity period

  • Test equipment monitoring over the entire service life



Portfolio of Accredited Services:

In the Lufft calibration laboratory, which is accredited by the DAkkS (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle = German accreditation body), your instruments are calibrated to your individual needs. The calibration is performed in specifically equipped laboratories. The Lufft calibration service has also wind tunnels and clima chambers that can operate according to all common demands.

Lufft offers these services not only for instruments out of their own product range but also for instruments of other brands. If you want to have more information about Lufft's calibration service, you should get in contact with us.

We can issue calibration certificates
within a few days. Specific delivery times
are available on request or by arrangement.


The Online Certificate Management and Concepts of Calibration

With the online certificate management, you will automatically be informed when the calibration of your product expires. The online certificate management also provides the ability to retrieve data from already made calibrations. The certificates are also saved as a pdf file in the database and can be downloaded at any time. You can find more information about our services in our portfolio of accredited services.

The Kipp & Zonen Calibration Services

Kipp & Zonen Calibration

Regular calibration of all measurement equipment is the key to maintaining the original performance and accuracy. We recommend calibration of the sensitivity of our radiometers every two years.

The individual sensitivity of a Kipp & Zonen radiometer is determined under the measurement conditions stated on its calibration certificate and is valid at the date of first use. If the radiometer is carefully stored in dark, warm and dry conditions and desiccant is changed as required, the sensitivity will not change. Many factors affect the measurement uncertainty of a radiometer under varying measurement conditions that differ from the calibration conditions, but the non-reversible effect on sensitivity is mainly caused by exposure to solar radiation. The physical properties of any optical radiometer change due to ultraviolet (UV) radiation affecting diffusers, optical filters, photodiodes, and the black absorber coating of thermopile detectors.

Kipp & Zonen specifies this ageing affect as ‘non-stability (change/year)’ and, in general, it will take about two years to noticeably affect the accuracy of measurements. It is for this reason that Kipp & Zonen recommends you calibrate your radiometers at least once every two years.

However, industrial customers using our products in testing, quality or process control (including solar energy) may have internal QA/QC procedures that require annual calibration. Certain industry standards, such as IEC 61274-1, March 2017 Photovoltaic system performance – Part 1: Monitoring, may also specify a yearly calibration interval.

Factory standard radiometer calibrations always nearby

For your convenience, Kipp & Zonen operates a network of centrally managed calibration facilities around the world that can also offer the most common pyranometer repairs.

Your Advantages Are:

In addition, our offices can calibrate albedometers, most pyrgeometers and the CNR4 net radiometer; using the same equipment and procedures as at the factory.

Pyrheliometers, UV radiometers and some specialized products can only be calibrated at the factory.

Get in contact with us and we’ll get you in touch with our nearest calibration facility to coordinate your calibrations!
