Levels Used To Calibrate Instruments

Effective instrument calibration is vital for the accuracy and reliability of many an engineer’s work. From surveyors to construction engineers, many use quality precision levels to ensure that construction projects can be safely carried out. 

There are various types of levels that can be used to measure angles. Some levels enable teams to calibrate more complex instruments. Here, we’re going to look at some of the precision levels available and how they help engineers complete their tasks.

Digital Angle Finder

Digital angle finders, also known as digital protectors, serve as useful precision levels that can assist with a wide range of tasks. A digital angle finder provides immediate access to a range of vital readings on its digital display. As soon as it’s placed on a surface, it will read the level, angle, and tilt by making use of a rugged electronic sensor, custom circuitry and a liquid crystal display. This makes it relatively easy to use, with a highly visible digital display that eliminates the need for a bubble or vernier scale. It’s battery-powered too, so it’s suitable for use without the need for a direct power source.

Telemetric Alignment System

AN Inclination Measuring System is often built for military armaments. Used in combat system leveling, a telemetric alignment system is often used to calibrate a radar pad’s alignment, and angle differential measurement for big guns. The WK Inclination Measuring System can help quickly and easily measure the differential angles between two or more planes. With sensors that are accurate within ± 10 arc seconds, encased in a reliable aluminum housing, this system also includes two ports for connecting sensor heads as well as a port for connecting to an external power supply or connecting a computer for data storage. Telemetric alignment systems can come with universal power supplies and therefore be used in all geographies.

Digital Protractor with a Clinometer

This type of digital protector provides many of the measurements of a digital angle finder but also makes use of an electronic clinometer. Like the digital angle finder, this protractor uses a digital display and can immediately display the level, angle, and tilt when it’s placed on a suitable service. However, the clinometer component is unique to this particular digital protractor with clino and includes a measuring instrument that is used to measure angles of slope, elevation, and depression of a given object in relation to the surrounding terrain or surface. 

Often, the clinometer component comes with a cable to connect it to the digital protractor. Usually, with a 9-volt battery is all that is required, making it more viable for use in a range of settings. Digital protractors can also come with a range of settings, including different degree resolutions.

There is a wide range of levels that are used to calibrate instruments in construction and engineering settings, including those mentioned above. Farmers often use traditional box bean levels when squaring corners and even those require calibration. Determining which levels are best suited for your instruments may require professional instrument calibration services if you don’t have the skills yourself.
