PicoScope 3204 - Calibration

Postby Ramon » Wed Mar 14, 2007 10:15 pm

Hi there

I'm a student and I'd like to get myself a PicoScope 3204. In ordering I'm asked whether I'd like the PicoScope to be calibrated. What do you mean by that? I know what 'calibration' is, but does it mean that the PicoScope is by default out of range (not reliable). Or is it only needed for high-end purposes?

Sorry for my bad English.

Best regards, Ramon

Hi and thank you for your post.

The units that we sell fit within the specification we define, however a calibration certificate can be obtained where the units are adjusted for even greater accuracy, you are provided with a certificate with the errors obtained at a all voltage ranges.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your reply.

Now I only have to figure out which of your oscilloscopes will best meet my needs :wink:

Have a nice weekend,
