Webinar Recording: Uncertainty in Calibration

 

This ISA webinar on calibration considerations in hazardous areas was presented by Rich Kohl, global accounts team program manager at Honeywell, and Ned Espy and Roy Tomalino of Beamex.

 

Did you know you can calculate your confidence level in a measurement? Watch this webinar to understand how you can use statistics in measurement, AKA uncertainty analysis, to determine an appropriate uncertainty value, calibration intervals and tolerances without a PhD in mathematics. Essential components of uncertainty will be explained, and experts will discuss when traditional errors, like percent of span are appropriate and what to use with digital technology and smart instruments.
