How Often Should I Recalibrate My Laser Power Or Energy Detector?

blog

Now that you got your hands on a brand-new Gentec-EO laser power or laser energy detector, you may be wondering when will you have to let go this awesome piece of technology for recalibration. Or maybe it’s the dusty detector that you found in a colleague's drawer and you are wondering if the calibration is still valid.

RECOMMENDED CALIBRATION INTERVAL
First, you need to understand that there is no mandatory recalibration period. There is no international standard related to this and you can decide what your calibration interval will be. However, the industry standard is that a detector should be recalibrated every 12 months, and that the calibration on new units is valid for 18 months.
