NI Calibration Services Austin Now Accredited for ISO 17025 Calibration


National Instruments has announced that its NI Calibration Services Austin headquarters has been accredited by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) to provide calibration for ISO/IEC 17025:2005, one of the most rigorous international calibration standards in the industry. The accreditation recognizes NI’s commitment to excellence in quality and customer service and extends the company’s investment in PXI-based test and measurement offerings. The company’s new ISO 17025 accredited calibration service is ideal for the ever-growing field of engineers standardizing their automated test systems on the PXI modular instrumentation platform, which offers some of the most advanced technology possible to address demanding engineering challenges.

For companies subject to government regulation – including OEMs that develop medical devices, transportation products and electronics – as well as multinational corporations looking for a single quality benchmark, ISO 17025 provides the most highly recognized global standard for calibration. The ISO 17025 accredited calibration service, which also complies with the ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994 standard, helps any organization that needs its PXI instrumentation certified for compliance with rigorous quality standards.
