Manual Data Entry Errors

Posted by Heikki Laurila on Mar 25, 2021

Manual data entry errors - Beamex blog post

 

Many businesses still use a lot of manual entry in their industrial processes.

This is despite the fact that it is commonly known and accepted that it is a slow and labor-intensive process and there are always human errors related to manual data entry - Human errors are natural.

It is commonly accepted that the typical error rate in manual data entry is about 1 %.

What does this 1 % mean in practice in calibration processes, and how can you make it smaller, or even get rid of it?

This article mainly focuses on industrial calibration processes and the manual data entry related to these processes.

How to choose a calibration laboratory - 13 things to consider

Beamex Temperature Calibration Laboratory

 

So you have invested in some new, accurate calibration equipment. Great!

But as with many other things in life, also accuracy fades over time.

To ensure that your calibration equipment serves you well and stays accurate throughout its lifetime, it needs to be recalibrated periodically. It also needs to be serviced and adjusted whenever necessary.

When choosing a calibration laboratory or calibration service, you need to select one that is capable of calibrating your accurate equipment with sufficient uncertainty.

We have seen the accuracy of a calibrators being destroyed in a non-competent laboratory. I want to help you to avoid that.

What do you need to consider when choosing a calibration laboratory?

In this blog post I will discuss the most important things to consider when choosing a calibration laboratory for your precious calibrator or reference standard.

Temperature switches are commonly used in various industrial applications to control specific functions. As with any measuring instrument, they need to be calibrated regularly to ensure they are working accurately and reliably – lack of calibration, or inaccurate calibration, can have serious consequences. Calibrating a temperature switch is different from calibrating a temperature sensor or transmitter, for example, so this blog post aims to explain how to properly calibrate a temperature switch. Let’s start!

Temperature-webinars-2020_1500px_v1

We have recently done two webinars on temperature calibration; one was done by Beamex, Inc. in USA and the other by Beamex Ltd in UK.

As both webinars discuss temperature calibration, we will share both of them here in the same blog post.

I have done a table of content for both webinars so you can easily see what is included and can jump quickly to the interesting point.

Both webinars include a Live Demo session, demonstrating a fully automatic calibration of temperature sensor.

You can find free webinar recordings and info on upcoming webinars on our webinars page.

Sanitary temperature sensor calibration

Sanitary temperature sensor calibration - a Beamex blog post

 

Sanitary temperature sensors are commonly used in many industries, such as Food and Beverage, Dairy, Pharmaceutical and Life-science. In this post I will take a look at what these sanitary temperature sensors are and how they differ from common temperature sensors.

The calibration of sanitary sensors is different and way more difficult than calibrating normal temperature sensors. In this blog post, I will be discussing the considerations that should be taken into account when calibrating these sensors; it is easy to make mistakes that will cause big errors in the calibration results.

So if you are calibrating sanitary temperature sensors, you should take a look at this blog post.

Sure, there is also some educational content for everybody interested in temperature calibration.

Let's dive in!
