Calibration

As with any precision instrument, periodic calibration is required to ensure instrument accuracy. Calibration adjusts the internal settings of your alcohol tester to a predetermined and known standard.

Lifeloc recommends instrument calibration at least annually to ensure test accuracy and precision. Figment Group trains you on how to perform your own calibrations manually using dry gas method or an automatic method using Lifeloc EASYCAL® calibration station.

It is important that calibration instructions are followed precisely. Every manual calibration must be followed by a manual calibration check to make certain your unit is properly calibrated. These procedures are available in detail in your Operator’s Manual. Alternatively, Lifeloc instruments can perform automatic calibration and cal checks when used with the Lifeloc EASYCAL® automatic calibration station.

If your unit is used under Department of Transportation guidelines, Lifeloc has DOT approved Quality Assurance Plans (QAPs) that will help guide you through the process. Please note that in order to perform a qualified calibration on units used for evidential DOT testing, you must be certified through Lifeloc or a qualified instructor as a factory authorized Operator and Calibration Technician on the specific model you are using.

All Lifeloc fuel cell alcohol testers may be calibrated with either Dry Gas. Figment Group provides training and support for either calibration method.

Automatic Calibration

The Lifeloc EASYCAL® automatic calibration station fully automates Lifeloc instrument calibration and is available for use on the road or in the office for either the EV 30 or Phoenix 6.0BT.

Dry Gas Calibration

Dry Gas is most commonly used for calibration since it is both economical, convenient and portable for field use. Dry gas cannot be transported by plane in your luggage or carry-on.
