Structure of the department
The “Thermodynamic Quantities” department is divided into the subject fields “Temperature measurands” and “Humidity measurands”.
Accreditations and conformity assessment bodies
This department provides support with cases of calibration laboratories on the basis of the accreditation standard DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025.
The temperature measurands include calibration items such as resistance thermometers, thermal elements and thermocouples, direct-reading thermometers, temperature transmitters and data loggers, and radiation thermometers.
The subject field of humidity measurands includes for example the calibration of measuring instruments for relative humidity and measuring instruments for absolute humidity.
Benefits of accreditation
With its accreditation, DAkkS confirms fulfilment of the normative requirements with regard to conformity assessment activities to the laboratory in question, and thus its technical competence.
