Calibration of equipment is vitally important whenever measurements are involved. It will enable you and your businesses to have confidence in the results that the equipment records. Typically, data loggers must be calibrated annually to ensure that they measure correctly.
The majority of data loggers on the market do not include a calibration service. This means that customers each year have to use their supplier or a third party to ensure that their devices are calibrated.
In cases where users forget or simply miss the annual calibration deadline, there is a risk of reduction in accuracy and reliability. In some cases there is a risk of crucial deviations from the quality system. For companies working within food or pharmaceutical industries this could potentially lead to non-compliances with GDP (Good Distribution Practices).

A standard calibration of a USB datalogger will typically cost 70-90€ per unit. This is an annual spend that many often forget to take into account when the costs of different solutions are compared. The calibration takes 4-8 days, during which users have to have backup solution at hand.
Eupry offers a subscription plan that offers service and support on top of the WiFI Temperature Data Loggers. Once a year, Eupry replace data loggers with new, calibrated loggers. This annual service is included in the standard and premium subscription. In the standard subscription it is limited to three dataloggers per year though.
Furthermore, Eupry’s data loggers are calibrated in Eupry’s laboratory using systematic and validated procedures. The laboratory is accredited according to ISO / IEC 17025 standard, recognised by almost all european countries. In other words: Eupry guarantees highly accurate calibrations, ensured by regular inspections performed by the approved accreditation body, DANAK. Read more about how Eupry calibrate here.
