When you set calibration dates for devices and their probes, viewLinc automatically issues calibration reminder notifications at 3 months and 1 month before to the due date, and again on the due date.

You can set the properties for calibration notifications (priority, delay, acknowledgement) in a device calibration alarm template, and add a notification message, such as who to contact to initiate the calibration service.

Calibration duration can be set for all devices in System Preferences by selecting the value column beside the option, Default calibration duration; however, the calibration duration set on a data logger or a probe overrides the system preference.
Calibration information on some devices is set automatically and cannot be modified.
  1. In Sites Manager select the Hosts and Devices tab.
  2. In the Hosts and Devices tree, select a device.
  3. Select Configure > Edit Properties.
  4. In the Edit Device Properties window, calibration fields are available for the device and any attached probes. Add calibration details:
    Calibration date
    Type the last calibration date, unless preset by Vaisala Calibration Services.
    Calibrated by
    Type the name of person who last calibrated the device, unless preset by Vaisala Calibration Services.
    Next calibration date
    Type the date for next calibration. If no date entered, the system automatically sets the date to one year after last calibration date.
  5. Select OK.
