The project for the construction of our new Calibration Lab began in March 2018, and is slated to be completed soon. The lab consists of a prep room (for ice machine and welder), a cool room, and a hot room. 



TE Wire & Cable offers extensive calibration services to assure that our customers’ critical accuracy requirements are met. All calibrations are performed in our in-house calibration laboratory, which is directly traceable to NIST (National Institute for Standards and Technology). All thermocouple wire is carefully calibrated, selected and matched to meet or exceed ASTM and ANSI initial calibration tolerance requirements.


Calibration temperature capabilities are cryogenic –320°F (-196°C) and at any point from a low temperature of -110F (-79C) through an upper temperature of 2400°F (1316°C). Certified calibration test reports are available showing temperature deviations, correction factors or actual temperature readings.


Calibration reference standards, directly traceable to NIST, include base metal, Type S platinum, Type B platinum, 25 OHM platinum resistance thermometer and freeze point cells. TE Wire & Cable’s calibration laboratory is ISO 9001:2015 certified, and conforms to the requirements of MIL STD-45662A, ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994, AMS 2750, ASTM E220, ASTM E207. Products can be supplied to meet the calibration standards of ASTM E230, BAC 5621, ST 2155 and other customer special accuracy requirements. TE Wire & Cable’s calibration laboratory is also A2LA accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2005, Certificate Number 2792.01.

In addition to wire, TE Wire & Cable offers calibration of thermocouple assemblies, sensors and RTDs.


New items featured in the Calibration Lab include a temperature control panel with new controllers, a Brema ice maker, and more!
