Each new Cirris tester is calibrated in compliance with ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994 and ISO-10012 standards and includes a calibration certificate valid for one year. In addition to the certificate, the calibration verification date can be found on a sticker applied to the back panel of the tester. Cirris recommends the calibration be verified annually at a minimum.
Verify Calibration with Performance Check Kits
Performance Check Kits verify that your tester still operates within MFG Specifications and follows NIST standards. Following our documented process, a single Performance Check kit can run directly on your Cirris tester at your facility as often as needed.
If the tester passes the Performance Check, the verification is complete. Keep the worksheet created during the procedure as record proof for your Quality Department.
If the tester fails the Performance Check, it should be sent to Cirris for servicing.
Each Performance Check Kit can be used on multiple testers as many times as needed for two years before it needs to be replaced.
Tester Calibration at Cirris
If a Cirris tester is out of calibration, the tester can be sent back to a Cirris facility for recalibration. This service includes a certificate of calibration valid for one year and an updated sticker applied to the unit.
If you would like us to calibrate your tester, please complete the Return Merchandise Authorization form. Once it’s been submitted, our Technical Support team will email you with an RMA number and information on sending your tester in for Service.
