On-site and laboratory calibration
Our audiometric calibration system (laboratory and site) is based around our unique ADACS system.
This system can calibrate any type of audiometer from a hand-held screening device to a fully featured clinical instrument. The parameters measured are Frequency, Sound Pressure Level, Force Level, Narrow-Band Masking Level, Distortion and Attenuator Linearity.
We will carry out minor repairs (such as replacing headphone leads, cushions, batteries etc.) as part of the calibration process.
A repair which involves dis-assembly of the instrument or the replacement of a faulty transducer will be carried out in the laboratory
MES Testing to BS EN 62353:2014
All AML engineers are now equipped to carry out medical electrical safety testing to BS EN 62353.
This is a routine electrical safety test for equipment designed to IEC 60601 and is a more comprehensive test than a standard portable appliance test (PAT test).
Prior to using the visiting service provided by AML, we were forced to ship our instruments to Dublin or the UK for service and calibration. Invariably this meant suspending our service during the shipping process and sometimes resulted in damage to our instruments during transportation. The on-site service and calibration offered by AML is much more convenient for us resulting in less down time and lower costs.It’s good to know that our instruments are calibrated and certified to the highest standards.- Cathal McGurgan, Sligo University Hospital, Ireland
We’ve worked with Acoustic Metrology for many years now and consider them an extremely reliable and responsive partner who understands us well and how we work. I’d have no hesitation recommending them as a calibration and repair company for audiological equipment given our past, current and hopefully futre relationship.- Adrian Carragher, Head of Audiology Service, NHS Ayrshire and Arran
Calibration – quick email. It was responded to straight away and within the space of 20 minutes we had booked that calibration in. And that’s key not just to me but for all of my colleagues throughout Specsavers – the annual calibration of equipment. Historically you send it away you haven’t got it. So you have to have equipment there to cover. Very quick easy email, we’ve got an engineer coming round within a week who will calibrate two units at once in the same day and I haven’t got to worry about it.- Mike Walker, Director of Hearing Services, Specsavers Worcester
