Calibration Process

We calibrate our sensors in our premises using advanced technologies. In order for the sensors to keep their initial accuracy, we offer to recalibrate them at regular intervals. The need for calibration and the frequency depend on the type of product, see below table for our recommendation for each sensor.

Calibration Programme

At Vectory Sensor Systems, we like keeping our products to their high standards and we would like to help the customers remembering that the sensors are due for calibration. That is why we have created the Calibration Programme. An easy way for the customers to get reminders for calibration.

How does it work?

  1. We reach out to you 2 months before your sensor is due for recalibration and let you know when we need to have it back.
  2. We ask if you would like to rent a replacement sensor while yours is being calibrated (price and period of time for rental and calibration will be attached to the email).
  3. You ship the sensor to us on agreed date.
  4. We ship it back to you after the calibration job is finished.

How to join the Calibration Programme?

Joining the programme is simple and free of charge:

At the time of purchase of our sensors, we will ask you if you want to be part of the Calibration Programme. If you agree, we will add the sensors purchased to the programme and we will do the rest!

If you already have some of our sensors and haven’t joined the Calibration Programme yet, please write to us and join now.

1The Horizon 505 MRU is not designed for applications needing the roll and pitch outputs to be relative to the true vertical. For applications such as hydrographic survey, the sensor is usually calibrated by the users before each job and this is sufficient to keep the product close to the original calibration.

2MRUs for helideck application usually require periodic recalibration to keep the roll and pitch values relative to the true vertical. However, the Horizon HD has been designed to keep its accuracy over the years without need for recalibration.
