Yokogawa has again extended its leadership in calibration by launching a new AC energy calibration service.
- Accreditation to ISO17025 opens new calibration options for manufacturers concerned with energy efficiency and measurement.
The launch of the new service follows Yokogawa’s accreditation (K164) to ISO17025, allowing the calibration of AC energy measuring devices at up to 40 MWh at a maximum time of 1000 hours.
This is ideal for manufacturers of products, equipment, or appliances where the measurement of energy efficiency is critical to meet efficiency goals, for proving product specifications or meeting regulatory requirements such as energy labelling of consumer products.
It is also vital for applications for usage-based billing of electrical energy between supplier and user, not only for houses and offices but also for other applications, for example charging of electrical vehicles. Other uses include renewable energy projects such as photovoltaic and wind installations and end tests and type rating where energy is involved.
With the new service, Yokogawa’s European Standards Laboratory, based at the company’s European Headquarters in Amersfoort, Netherlands, now offers comprehensive energy and power calibration, customized to meet the needs of specific applications.
Erik Kroon, Yokogawa’s European Standards Laboratory Manager, says: “We are one of a few laboratories able to calibrate in the frequency range 40 Hz to 1 kHz.
“This makes us particularly attractive for engineers working on applications in Automotive, Aviation and Marine and who can now more easily source ISO17025 accredited energy measurements for 400 Hz systems. Using our precise and accurate energy and power calibration services ensures that their designs and instruments meet engineering and quality control requirements.”
“We are proud to be able to extend our calibration services to include AC energy,” says Terry Marrinan, Yokogawa’s Vice President, Global Marketing. Test & Measurement, “and now also support customers that need to maintain the accuracy and trusted repeatability of their testing instruments to meet regulatory needs for their application.”

About Yokogawa Test & Measurement
Yokogawa has been developing measurement solutions for 100 years, consistently finding new ways to give R&D teams the tools they need to gain the best insights from their measurement strategies. The company has pioneered accurate power measurement throughout its history, and is the market leader in digital power analysers.
Yokogawa instruments are renowned for maintaining high levels of precision and for continuing to deliver value for far longer than the typical shelf-life of such equipment. Yokogawa believes that precise and effective measurement lies at the heart of successful innovation - and has focused its own R&D on providing the tools that researchers and engineers need to address challenges great and small.
Yokogawa takes pride in its reputation for quality, both in the products it delivers - often adding new features in response to specific client requests - and the level of service and advice provided to clients, helping to devise measurement strategies for even the most challenging environments.
The guaranteed accuracy and precision of Yokogawa's instruments results from the fact that Yokogawa has its own European standards laboratory at its European headquarters in The Netherlands. This facility is the only industrial (i.e. non-government or national) organisation in the world to offer accredited power calibration, at frequencies up to 100 kHz. ISO 17025 accreditation demonstrates the international competence of the laboratory.
