Aug 19 2016 Comments 0

Reinforcing its position at the forefront of sound and vibration instrumentation and sensors for aerospace, defence, automotive and telecommunications, AcSoft (UK) has established an Acoustic Calibration Laboratory at its new state-of-the-art office in Bedford. 

With the first phase of the facility fully operational, the company is now able to offer on-site calibration of its G.R.A.S measurement microphones and pre-amplifiers, as well as perform diagnostics and repairs.

AcSoft has appointed acoustics specialist Alejandro (Alex) Santana to head up the new calibration laboratory.

Paul Rubens, General Manager at AcSoft comments: “Calibrating microphones at regular intervals is a way to safeguard the quality of measurements and eliminate the costs caused by unreliable equipment.

He adds: “We have replicated the excellent calibration set up of G.R.A.S Sound & Vibration in Denmark. Having a dedicated in-house acoustic calibration laboratory backed by Alex’s expertise and passion means we can offer market-leading turnaround times and a cost effective service.

“Going forward, we will be expanding the laboratory’s capabilities to include accelerometers and a wide range of sound level meters, analysers and dosimeters,” Paul concludes.

Depending on the application, measurement environment and internal quality control programs, AcSoft recommends that microphones are calibrated at a dedicated acoustic calibration laboratory at least once a year.

All AcSoft’s measurements are traceable to national standards. It offers a full and cost effective multi-point frequency and sensitivity calibration for measurement microphones and pre-amplifiers.
