Tektronix calibration plans are convenient and easy to use. With a Tektronix calibration plan, your instrument will get priority, placing it ahead of the on-demand queue and minimizing the time the instrument is out of circulation. We offer options for both in-depot service at a Tektronix lab as well as onsite calibration performed on your schedule, in your facility.

Additionally, online tools such as CalWeb, are available 24/7 to track your instrument's service journey. Calibration due notices help you keep track of your instrument's calibration intervals, sparing you the administrative effort of tracking the intervals manually. Whether you choose factory certified or commercial calibration, compliance and measurement confidence is assured.


You count on your instruments to deliver their specified performance year after year. The best way to ensure top performance is to follow a rigorous calibration schedule, adhering to the recommended calibration interval for each particular instrument. And there is no better resource for calibration of your instrument than Tektronix, a pioneer in the test and measurement industry.


Your instruments must be calibrated to regional and internationally accepted standards so that their results can be trusted, giving you confidence in the quality of your products.

Both accredited and fully traceable calibration levels are available. Accreditation guarantees that compliant calibration facilities and procedures will be used, and traceability ties the accuracy of your instrument to a hierarchy of measurement references that begins with the tools that calibrate your instrument, and ends with the standardized weights and measures residing in national laboratories such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology in the United States.

Tektronix personnel, facilities, and equipment are certified and/or accredited, where applicable, to the following standards:

  • ISO/IEC 17025:2005 
  • ANSI/NCSL Z540.1-1994(R2002)
  • ISO 9001:2008 

Cost effectiveness

Tektronix multi-year calibration service plans are discounted from an equivalent level of on-demand service, making the plans the most affordable way to get quality Tektronix service over the life of your instrument.

Your calibration service plan is a contract protected against price increases and budget "surprises," and if you opt for factory certified service, the plans even include free shipping.

A Tektronix calibration plan delivers measurement confidence for a fixed and predictable cost of ownership.
