An electricity meter or energy meter measures the electrical energy and is available as single- and multi-phase. The calibration ensures that the instrument's displayed error fulfils the requirements. A regular calibration with us checks how stable the instruments measure.
A power and / or energy measuring instrument of the highest accuracy class, is often called a power standard or energy standard. These instruments are often used as a reference for calibration and verification of power / energy measuring systems.
The national laboratories are responsible for maintaining the national reference standards for each measurement quantity and spreading metrological competence and traceability to industry and society at large. The national reference standards are the highest level of traceability in Sweden.
By having your instruments and measurement systems calibrated by us, the measurement errors are minimized. This helps you optimize the quality of your measurements and minimize losses. Calibration is an important tool for ensuring the quality of the measurements and through continuous calibrations at RISE, the foundation is laid.
A calibration performed at a national laboratory fulfils all typical traceability and accreditation requirements that commonly exist in industry and society at large.
A common calibration method is to generate (simulate) the desired power levels and compare the instrument's display with the display of RISE's reference instrument. For this purpose, RISE has access to reference equipment whose measurement uncertainty is well below 0.01 %.
The calibration can be performed single-phase or three-phase, 3 wire or 4 wire coupling, at any power factor.
RISE offers calibration services adapted to the regulations for energy measurement systems, STAFS 2009:8. They are directly adapted to the requirements of control of energy measuring systems of categories 2-5.
RISE is also an accredited control body for testing (cluster sampling) of household meters (so-called electricity meters category 1).
We issue calibration certificates in Swedish or English. You can retrieve your calibration certificate and more information regarding your measuring device, directly from our customer web site Calibration.
