Fluke Corporation, supplier of calibration software, has introduced the MET/CAL® Plus V7.1 software suite, an enhancement of its market-leading calibration management programme with new features designed to handle expanding workloads efficiently.

Calibration labs face challenges, including an increasingly complex volume of work, fewer technicians, a growing list of quality standards they must adhere to and the constant pressure to reduce costs. Fluke believes that the new capabilities added to MET/CAL Plus V7.1 accommodate these realities with a streamlined user interface that makes automating calibration and tracking assets fast and accurate.

The programme's new guardbanding support allows metrologists to tailor algorithms to automatically tighten the pass limits associated with a unit under test's calibration specifications. This feature is particularly useful in identifying units that are out of tolerance, but still close to specification due to low test accuracy ratios.
