CALIBRATION AND REPAIR SERVICE
Various types of precision measuring instruments and devices require annual (if not more frequent) calibration services
to be performed. This is important simply because things change. Many factors can affect the degree of change over time.
Temperature variations, moisture, shock, vibration, mechanical stress (often by design), etc, play a role in the output
accuracy and longevity of a device. Anyone who plays a piano, violin, or other stringed musical instrument knows that it
may require periodic tuning even if it is rarely played. Some devices actually fare better with use rather than neglect. This
is because some components in a mechanical system are often under a degree of preload condition and are potentially
subject to developing a “mechanical memory” effect. This occurs at a molecular level. Many precision measurement
instruments are designed to overcome the effects of change through periodic adjustments or calibrations. The BOT-3000E
alerts the user when it is time to return the unit to the factory for the annual calibration and evaluation service. If the unit is
not re-calibrated by the due date, a text will appear on each test result printout indicating an “out of calibration” status.
IMPORTANT: When your device is sent in for calibration or service, any required updates will be installed at no charge.
Why Periodic Calibration is Important
How to Have Your Instrument Re-calibrated
To have your BOT-3000 or BOT-3000E re-calibrated, please go to our WEBSTORE and select CALIBRATION under SERVICES.  If you need a calibration certificate, please choose it during checkout. IMPORTANT: Please ship the unit in its protective Pelican case to our address below, along with the VERIFICATION MASS. PLEASE SAVE ANY TEST DATA  AND REMOVE ANY LIQUIDS FROM THE KIT BEFORE SHIPPING TO US. Allow at least 4 - 10 business days to complete the calibration, and any device updates or repairs may require additional time. Please do not wait until the last minute to request service as there may be several customer jobs ahead of yours. Weather-related delays may also be factors in determining shipment times. Thanks for your understanding.
