This feature allows the next Calibration Due Date to be entered into the System.

A PDF report can be triggered from the Next Calibration Due Date field. This is very useful in a regulated environment where exceeding the stipulated calibration period would cause a non-compliance.

To Enter the Next Calibration Due Date

1.From the required Site's Live View window, select Edit Mode from the main View Data menu. See Figure 762 below:

By default, the Sensor and Zone editing/configuration window for the Zone at the top of the left-hand menu is displayed.

To display another Zone's Edit Mode window, click on the entry for the required Zone in the left-hand menu. For an example, see Figure 769 below:

Zone Sensor Arrow Symbol

 

ii.In the left-hand list, click on the required Sensor's icon Sensor Icon.

Or:

In the table in the Zone's Edit Mode window, click on the required Sensor's name in the Sensor Name column. See Figure 771 below:

Figure 771

Select Sensor Name Edit Mode Table

3.Click the on the Calibration field to expand the Calibration pane. See Figure 773 below:

Figure 773

Calibration Field Expanded

Note:The Calibration pane will display different entries depending on the Sensor Type selected.

4.Enter the date that the next Calibration is due into the Next Calibration Due Date field, in the format:

YYYY-MM-DD

If the Sensor/Transmitter has just been added to the System, you will notice that the default date on the form will be one year from the date that the Sensor/Transmitter was added.

The normal calibration period is one year.

A good rule of thumb would be 12 months for environments that are contaminated or the constant operating humidity’s are very high. Where the environments are clean and the averages humidities are mid-range, then every 24 months would be acceptable.

5.When you are happy with the new date select Save.

Click on the Back button to cancel any changes to the Calibration due date.

If the Update has been successful, you will be returned to the Zone's Edit Mode window and the following message will be displayed. See example in 774 below:
