Calibration Frequency is the interval of time between required calibrations of any
given piece of test equipment. Set the Calibration Frequency
of Equipment in the Calibrations tab of the Equipment dialog (below).
There are four fields involved in the Calibration Frequency function. They are:
The following are all the Calibration Frequencies in Calibration Control where 'n'
is the number value in the Units field.
Unlike the other Frequencies that calculate due dates on specific days, the "Month
of" and "Week of" are special Frequencies that calculate the month
or week a calibration is due. These Frequencies are also affected by two settings in
the Options dialog for "First Day of Week" and "Due Date
'Week/Month of' Offset". By default, the "First Day of Week" is set to whatever is standard
on your operating system. The default for the Offset
is the Next Month or Week after the calculated due date.
Use the Date Masks tab of the Options dialog to modify how Due Dates display on
Due Cal labels. For instance, the default “Month of” mask is MMM-yyyy,
which results in "Month of Jun 2014". The default "Week of" mask is MM/dd/yy, which yields
"Week of 07/01/13". Use the combo boxes to select other
pre-defined date masks or create your own.
Note that placing the letter 'u' at the end of any date mask will cause all letters
in the mask to display in upper case.
