What’s Driving Demand for Electrical Calibration Equipment?

“Enhanced Focus on Accurate Measurements & MRO Driving Demand in Aerospace and Defense Sectors”

Extensive, accurate, and timely electronic calibration is a critical task for the aerospace and defense industry. The voltage and current meter should be calibrated and constantly visible to the pilot to avoid any difficulty, which can directly result in the loss of life.

Batteries and generators often play a crucial role in aircraft and are a primary source of electrical power. In complex avionic systems, malfunction of electronic devices can pose serious problems. Accurate measurement is therefore in high demand in the aviation industry.

Maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) in the aviation industry involve the restoration, service, and examination of aircraft and components perform testing activities to ensure the safety and reliability of aircraft as per international aviation standards. Electrical power relays fitted on a variety of aircraft that contain high amperage accessories such as a battery, starter, lights, and electrical actuators require maintenance and inspection, which is expected to propel the demand for electrical calibration equipment for MRO services in aviation technology.

“Growing Demand for Maintenance & Repair of Systems”

Manual electrical calibration equipment that occasionally performs inaccurate calibration can result in a variety of issues, including operation malfunction or additional maintenance and repair costs. Even the smallest calibration error can cost customers millions of dollars every year in critical applications, such as in the aerospace and defense, crude oil, or natural gas industries.

Industries are requesting process automation in calibration technology to combat this. This is one of the significant technological advancements that is revolutionizing end-user industries' processes and methods of service delivery.

In addition to offering equipment calibration and removing assembly errors, calibration service providers also meet customers' expectations for reduced future maintenance and repair costs, improved service quality, and quick turnaround times, thus leading to an increase in profitability.

Additionally, reducing device failures and product recalls leads to positive outcomes, helping maintain customer loyalty and increase sales. This factor is boosting the demand for electrical calibration equipment.

“Increasing Investments in Clean Energy”

  • As per the International Energy Agency (IEA), global renewable energy investment is set to reach a total of US$ 1.4 trillion in 2022.

The rising renewable energy sector also generates higher demand for electrical calibration equipment for battery, transformer, power quality, and insulating testing applications.

There will be a significant demand for testing equipment to measure DC as most renewable energy generates DC other than conventional AC. For the smooth operation of renewable power generation units, various standards are to be followed that define the control of active and reactive power, behavior of grid disturbances, and limits of power quality based on country.

Testing as per regulations requires different test procedures and the usage of test equipment such as power analyzers, data loggers, and multimeters, among others. This will lead to the rising demand for electrical calibration equipment in the renewable sector for dynamic monitoring to scale distribution, optimize grid assets, and analyze grid performance.

What Concerns Do Electrical Calibration Equipment Manufacturers Have?

“Scarcity of Raw Materials for Production and High Calibration Costs”

One of the major restraints for the electric meter calibration market is the unavailability of key raw materials for production, resulting in price complexity. Electric meter calibration equipment costs more since it is produced using costly materials that have a higher lifespan and are more durable, tolerant to environmental effects, and more limited in availability, such as nickel carbide, ceramics, aluminium, brass, and PVDF.

Also, getting certifications from various national institutions can be costly, which is why electrical calibration equipment tends to cost more. Along with that, highly expert and skilled professionals are required to operate calibration-testing equipment and perform tests following the regulations, directives, and standards applicable to the devices being calibrated. Ultimately, it comes down to what customers value and hold most important, and their budget. This is where research can be important in overcoming this restraint.
