Current Calibrator, Frequency Standard, Resistance Standard, Voltage Calibrator

Artifact Calibration, as implemented in the Fluke Calibration 5700A Multifunction Calibrator, was a revolutionary concept when it was introduced in 1988. Today, with many thousands of instruments deployed throughout the world, questions often arise about how well Artifact Calibration stands up over time in real world applications:
• Does Artifact Calibration really work?
• Is the 5700A stable enough to support its specifications for periods up to one year between Artifact Calibrations?
• Is the two year full verification really needed?
• Can I really expect a 5700A calibrated in the factory to meet its specifications?

This application note answers these questions.
