Referencing Calibration Standards
How to link masters to calibrated equipment
Linking Standards (Masters) to Calibration Events is simple. They create a
data trail (traceability) between national measurement standards
and the Equipment Under Calibration.
ID a Calibration Standard (Master)
Before referencing in a Calibration Event, the Standard must exist as an Equipment
record with the "Is Calibration / Test Standard" checkbox
checked. Find this checkbox in the Calibrations tab of the Equipment dialog.
Standards are Green in Grid
By default, Calibration Standards display with a green highlight in the Tool Browse
Grid (Equipment Grid). Refer to the color coding help
topic for more on color.
Link Calibration Masters
After Equipment records for Calibration Masters are created and identified as Masters
(Standards), they can be linked to individual Calibration
Events. Refer to the Calibration help topic for
more information on creating a Calibration Event.
Clicking the [Standards] button in the Measurement Group of 'Calibration Details'
displays a list of available Standards. Unavailable Standards are
those (a) standards currently out of calibration, (b) standards
with their last calibration event with an As Left result
of "Failed" or "Unknown", or (c) is the current equipment under calibration.
The process of linking a Standard to a Calibration Event makes a copy of the calibration
information of the Standard and stores it in the Calibration
Event record. This means that when the calibration information for the Standard changes
(after the Calibration Event), a snapshot of the Standard at
the time of Calibration is preserved, which helps maintain accurate traceability.
Note: If the Due Cal date has passed the present Calibration
date, then the Standard is red and unavailable because it is past due for
