Calibration Industry | Measurement Standards Laboratory of New Zealand

DC Voltage References:

usually zener-based references (such as Fluke 732B, Statronics VS4 etc). Standard cell reference calibrations are no longer offered.

DC Standard Resistors:

we cover the range from 0.1 mΩ to 5 TΩ.

DC Current Shunts:

we calibrate DC shunts up to 875 A

Standard Capacitors, Inductors, and AC Resistors:

these are normally calibrated at 1.59 kHz although we cover the range 40 Hz to 2 kHz at an increased uncertainty.

AC-DC Standards:

these include single-range thermal voltage converters (such as Fluke A55, which can be calibrated up to 70 MHz) or multirange instruments (such as Fluke 5790A, which are generally calibrated up to 1 MHz). AC-DC Current Shunts (such as a Fluke A40) are best calibrated in combination with the AC-DC voltage instrument with which they are used and can be calibrated up to 100 kHz.

DMM and Multi-Function Calibrators:

we cover 5½ to 8½ DMMs (such as HP3458A, HP34401A, Fluke 8506A, Datron 1281 etc) and calibrators with similar capability (such as the Fluke 5700A and Fluke 5500A families, Fluke 5100B etc).

Other products and services from Measurement Standards Laboratory


Measurement Standards Laboratory of New Zealand - services

As New Zealand’s national metrology institute, one of our main functions is to provide calibrations traceable to New Zealand’s National Standards and to the SI. All of our routine calibration certificates are recognised internationally as demonstrating traceability to the SI. R&D on measurements or measuring instruments.


Measurement Standards Laboratory of New Zealand - calibration

If you require a calibration, please discuss your requirements with the relevant contact person who will assist in defining the scope of the work required and provide a written work order agreement that outlines the cost and time frame for the job. We have produced some guidelines to assist in making the best use of our calibration certificates and to help you understand the meaning of the uncertainty statements used.

MSL has a number of experts who offer specialist consultancy services based on often unique technical expertise.


Chemical Standards Services | Measurement Standards Laboratory of New Zealand

The goal is to enable laboratories to ensure comparability of measurement results and to demonstrate traceability from their working level to the SI (International System of Units). The Chemical Standards Programme is a recent initiative to provide New Zealand with a technical infrastructure for chemical measurements. The reference materials listed here are available from one or more of the following organisations.


Electrical and RF Standards Services

MSL has offered a successful and popular energy meter proficiency testing programme to electrical calibration laboratories in New Zealand. The service provides traceable measurement of power sensor calibration factor over the range of frequencies from 30 MHz to 3000 MHz. Examples of calibrated instruments include Fuel Gauge Test Sets as well as reference standards as described above.


Length Standards Services | Measurement Standards Laboratory of New Zealand

Length Standards provides calibration services for dimensional metrology instruments. We also provide advice and consultation on dimensional measurement problems. A similar scale of charges applies to the equivalent imperial sizes. Calibrate a one or two metre steel rule with two scales.
