AcSoft has established a facility for the calibration of measurement microphones and pre-amplifiers at its new state-of-the-art office in Bedford, in the UK.

With the first phase of the facility fully complete, the company is now able to offer on-site calibration of its GRAS measurement microphones and pre-amplifiers, and perform diagnostics and repairs. AcSoft has appointed acoustics specialist Alejandro Santana to head up the new calibration laboratory.

Paul Rubens (above right), general manager at AcSoft, commented, “Calibrating microphones at regular intervals is a way to safeguard the quality of measurements and eliminate the costs caused by unreliable equipment.

“We have replicated the excellent calibration set-up of GRAS Sound & Vibration in Denmark. Having a dedicated in-house acoustic calibration laboratory backed by Alex’s [Alejandro’s]expertise and passion means we can offer market-leading turnaround times and a cost-effective service.

“Going forward, we will be expanding the laboratory’s capabilities to include accelerometers and a wide range of sound level meters, analyzers and dosimeters,” Rubens added.
