Evaluating Calibration Tolerances Can Save You Trouble • JM

Also, tolerances should be specified in the units measured for the calibration. All test equipment readouts are accurate only to a certain level of uncertainty, or tolerance. The best test equipment has LOW uncertainties, but NO test equipment can give you a 100% correct output or input reading – there is a tolerance for all equipment.
