Why Should I Service My Unit?

Sometimes high level accuracy units have their accuracy affected by harsh conditions, such as inappropriate storage, temperature fluctuations or mishandling, drops and general wear and tear. Accuracy can also be affected over time by rigorous conditions of everyday use. We therefore recommend that you calibrate your tools regularly. Our recommendation is every 6 months for those tools that are constantly used.

Cody Corporation has a 3 step process with all calibrations we undertake, these steps are detailed below.

1. Verification of accuracy
We compare your tool’s accuracy with the accuracy defined by the factory settings. This is done by placing your unit on our various different calibration tunnels and ranges.

2. Adjustment, clean and service
If the tool doesn’t conform to its original specifications, we adjust the laser level or detector to make it accurate again. We also clean the tool and check that it’s working correctly before sending it back to you. The cleaning and checking undertaken includes the following. Cleaning of the unit of Dirt, Concrete and imperfections on the internal and external of the units. We also check the Batteries within the Units and Receivers. Check the functionality of the Remotes, Receivers and Chargers supplied with the system and ensure everything is working correctly.

3. Documentation
After a service and calibration has been completed we will provide you with a Calibration Certificate which authenticates the accuracy of the unit brought in for a check. This is required on Building sites all around the country. We provide a physical and an electronic version of this certificate for you to be able to provide to anyone who requires it. As previously mentioned these units should be re-calibrated and checked every 6 months to ensure accuracy on a job site and onsite tests should always be undertaken if you are receiving readings which are not correct.


Why do I need to calibrate my tools?

All high accuracy tools are designed to be high precision instruments, but they can get damaged and inaccurate due to external factors such as temperature fluctuations, air pressure, improper storage conditions or the harshness of everyday use.

How often do I need to calibrate my tools?

We recommend regularly, at least once every 6 months.

We also recommend that you regularly field-test your tools, particularly before critical measurement tasks and if a tool has been subjected to harsh conditions.
