Calibration uncertainty!

The International Society of Automation (ISA) and its corporate partner, Beamex, Inc., will co-host a free webinar 8 June 2017 on calibration uncertainty.
About the presenters

Ned Espy, Technical Director at Beamex, has more than 27 years of direct field experience in instrumentation measurement applications. He’s been concentrating on calibration management at Beamex for more than 20 years.
He is a recognized expert in developing best practices for calibration, with a particular focus on temperature, pressure and multi-variable instruments. A consistent editorial contributor to leading industry publications, Espy has received significant acclaim within the automation industry. Each day, Espy teaches calibration best practices and provides technical support to end users and to the Beamex sales team in North America.

Roy Tomalino, Beamex Calibration Engineer, has more than 16 years of technical training experience. He serves as a trainer, certified developer and technical advisor on four continents to people from more than 40 countries.
He was a key player at Honeywell at its Fort Collins, Colorado office, where he supported the “DocuMint” Calibration Management Software and numerous calibrators as a trainer, certified developer and technical advisor. He also served as a worldwide trainer at Hewlett Packard. Today, Roy serves as a Beamex subject matter expert, supporting customers and the Beamex team in North America.

The webinar, which will be held from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time (17.00 to 18.30 in Ireland), will feature two calibration experts: Ned Espy, Technical Director at Beamex; and Roy Tomalino, Calibration Engineer at Beamex.

“Recognizing the fundamental concept of measurement uncertainty is essential in calibration because every measurement made has an accuracy threshold and a degree of uncertainty behind the measurement,” emphasizes Tomalino. “As result, calibration professionals should not make any measurements until they understand how to properly calculate measurement uncertainty.”

The webinar, Tomalino says, “will demystify this commonly confused topic. It will provide real-life application examples of how uncertainty affects calibration results. For example, let’s say you need a mA reading to the µA (4 decimal places), and your meter only goes to 1 decimal. Is that good enough? Are you not sure? We’ll answer these critical questions.”

“By registering for this valuable webinar, calibration professionals will learn what information is needed to calculate uncertainty, how to identify contributors to uncertainty, and how to evaluate calculations to prevent overestimating or underestimating uncertainty,” says Jennifer Infantino Halsey, ISA's Director of Marketing & Communications.  “ISA is pleased to co-sponsor this important free webinar with Beamex as part of our commitment to educate our members and customers and others in the automation community on topics of significant interest and value.”
