Alternate Systems is a calibration services company founded in 1986, based in Dallas and Fort Worth (DFW), Texas that specializes in Associated Research hand held multimeters.
Alternate Systems is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited to calibrate a wide variety of measurement tools including multimeters, oscilloscopes, power supplies, power meters, and more. Also, Alternate Systems is ISO 9001 certified for calibration, standards, measurement services, testing, research, development, design, manufacturing, and safety services. If your work requires testing, Alternate Systems is an accredited testing laboratory with special capabilities in coat0ing, film and plating thickness measurement. Check out our accreditations.
A multimeter measures various qualities of electric and electronic signals like current, frequency, resistance, voltage and capacitance.
Digital multimeters are used for electrical safety, equipment maintenance, electronic assembly, design, quality control, and much more.
Because of the critical nature of these measurements, it is very important to have your multimeters calibrated on a regular basis. Alternate Systems’ expert and experienced engineers and technicians use state of the art calibration standards to calibrate digital multimeters and associated electronic test and measurement instrumentation.
Three levels of calibration are available:
Level 1 Calibration without data
Level 2 Calibration with data
Level 3 Accredited calibration with data and uncertainties
Our Associated Research hand held multimeters provides "better measurements for a better world."
Our skilled multimeter calibration technicians are calibration and validation experts.
In addition to Associated Research hand held multimeters our calibration services include calibrating and servicing a variety of measuring instruments and process controls with specialization in XRF, Eddy current, and magnetic induction coating thickness measurement, XRF and film thickness standards, electronic test instruments, and temperature.
Our temperature mapping services include placing sensors throughout a space to log data for a period of time and report results to our clients in accordance with 21 CFR Parts 210/211.
We provide non-destructive coating and plating instruments, manufacture metal foil and plated standards for use with energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (XRF) coating analyzers, and calibration services for XRF coating analyzers and other non-destructive coating thickness measuring instruments and calibration standards.
In addition to Associated Research hand held multimeters we have been manufacturing Mylarfilm or foil thickness calibration standards for magnetic induction and Eddy current coating thickness measurement instruments since 1994. Now these standards are being provided for manufacturers measuring instruments using new technologies. We make the best film thickness standards in the world!
Alternate Systems provides radiation and laser safety training, radiation surveys, and expert consultation in coating measurement and analysis to aerospace manufacturers, defense manufacturers and research laboratories.
In addition to Associated Research hand held multimeters we specialize in providing 21 CFR Part 11 validation, cold chain GMP services, cold chain cGMP and GXP services, cold chain temperature monitoring, temperature-controlled storage facility mapping, temperature measuring systems, temperature calibration, temperature mapping, and many other validation and calibration services. Alternate Systems designs, installs, calibrates, and validates environmental monitoring and alarm SCADA systems.
We are your calibration and validation experts.
Our skilled multimeter calibration technicians love working with customers and ask the right questions to ensure your devices are calibrated for your specific use. We pride ourselves on our top tier customer service and look forward to working with you.
