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.


Calibration Industry | Measurement Standards Laboratory of New Zealand

AC-DC Current Shunts are best calibrated in combination with the AC-DC voltage instrument with which they are used and can be calibrated up to 100 kHz. These include single-range thermal voltage converters (such as Fluke A55, which can be calibrated up to 70 MHz) or multirange instruments. These are normally calibrated at 1.59 kHz although we cover the range 40 Hz to 2 kHz at an increased uncertainty.

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.
