The wide range of test instruments that we offer can be used for handheld mobile testing in the field, fixed installed continuous reliable measurements at your job site or facility, or entire systems designed for your particular application. Call us today and let us be your solution for virtually any parameter of material, force or particle measurement, or problem isolation.
Our devices are of the highest industry standards, and primarily are used in industrial settings, scientific research facilities, commercial applications, also government institutions, professional sports and outdoor activities, and in military operations. All test instruments are delivered manufacturer calibrated. PCE Instruments is certified to the highest industry standards in all of our measuring instruments.
Together with the device you will receive a protocol of control, calibrations and verifications done by our quality certified associates. At PCE Instruments we are constantly updating devices
and innovating new ones for the industry. We provide our customers laboratory capacities to calibrate the test instruments according to ISO, NIST, DAkkS. Our qualified professional associates can also have the test instrument verified legal for trade.
PCE Instruments is also a consultancy company and provides services for custom instrument design, installation, calibration, maintenance and on/off site monitoring. One of our associates can provide you with the support you need to tackle that large project or installation. Over 20 years in the industry, and the hundreds of combined years' experience of our associates can solve any measurement knowledge deficit or information flow issue large or small.
PCE Instruments is based in Germany (headquarter). With 11 subsidiaries all over the world, we are expanding our global reach to better serve the expanding global industry. Call or email us today and browse our wide range of benchmark industry standard equipment. Test, Test, Test - PCE is all about Test instruments.
Test Instruments Calibration
All test instruments, scales and balances are precalibrated (manufacturer calibrated). In case you need a special calibration certificate, we have the ability to do the ISO 9000-, QS 9000-, GLM-, DAkkS-, UKAS-, NIST- Certification for the test instruments as an option. The calibration certificates for test equipment, measuring instruments, scales and balances do have worldwide acceptance (for example: ISO is accepted in the U.S. as equal to NIST) and validity.
The DIN ISO test instruments calibration process explained when ordering a thermometer: The customer orders a thermometer with ISO calibration certificate. The laboratory calibrates this thermometer at two temperature points (the customer can e-mail two temperature points he wishes to us, example: -10 °C and +60 °C (in case no data is given, two standard temperatures are chosen). The calibration procedure will be documented and the customer will receive a special test report including company name and address and reference test instruments used while testing.
Some of the test instruments and scales and balances are verifiable (may be for use in trade = legal for trade). Mainly in commercial use when the test instruments or balances are used to determine the price of goods to be sold, it is required to have the instruments verified as legal for trade. The verification must be renewed after a certain time period. Also in case the product has to be repaired, a re-verification must be done to make sure that the test instruments are in accurate condition. So the approval is valid.
For adjusting / calibrating of scales and balances class II, we use the postal area code. Why? Balances have to be adjusted for their location & geological height) of use, due to the varying influence of gravitational forces.

PCE Test Instruments in Antarctic
PCE Instruments have tested its measuring instruments in the Antarctic. With the intention of checking if our test instruments has the capacity to resist the extreme temperatures provided by such an environment, and to see if small changes occur in the joints of the thermal insulation that might cause a micro-climate to exist within the boundarys of the device. The teams of engineers conducted astronomical, geological, ornithological and environmental surveys with great success, thanks to test instruments provided by PCE for ozone, pH, ultraviolet light, airflow measurements to name but a few.
The Antarctic is a natural laboratory that contains properties that hint to the origins of the earth and the Solar System. It's clear to see the role the Antarctic ice plays, thanks to the microscopic pockets of air that remain trapped in layers of ice. It is these pockets of air that are extremly important in the estimation of different climatic changes (glaciations) that have occurred upon the earth's surface over time. These measurements can be used to show how the earths climate has changed and can even be used in conjunction with future predictions to show how the climate will change in the future, if certain scenarios come to exist and we do not change our ways in terms of usage of fossil fuels.
Contributing factors of climatic change are the greenhouse effect, and the depletion of the ozone layer in the upper atmosphere, permitting UVB radiation to reach the planet's surface. This has been caused, in part, by increased human industrialization in the last decades. As a result, the earth naturally makes adjustments to effect climate change, these cyclical movements, precession and notation, that are made to the earth's position in relation to the sun, as well as its own cycles and evolution which are evidenced by changes in the earth's atmosphere, marine currents, and external forces such as asteroids. The history of the earth's climate allows scientists to determine which geographical area has been affected by climate changes. It's a mistake to believe that a particular geographical region has always been under the same climatic conditions through its history. What's certain is that an atmospheric change on the planet will result in vast changes for people today and this is the reason why so many people are afraid of climate change.
