Calibrating measurement instrumentation is something that should never go overlooked. To calibrate instrumentation means to determine, check, or rectify the graduation of any instrument giving quantitative measurement. Calibrating a device ensures that the instrument will properly measure within the desired range for your application. This is important because a properly calibrated measurement device will help the user to maintain his or her system. A device can be calibrated either at the factory where the device was manufactured or within the field. Calibration certificates may be obtained once a device has been calibrated.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the concept of creating a large network of devices that all interact with each other to ultimately change the way we live and work. By connecting our phones, cars, and other devices to this network and linking them together with shared data/services, we have the potential to revolutionize the way we do everyday tasks. This innovation is at the root of ideas like autonomous vehicles and smart cities that improve efficiency and simplify complicated systems. From an industrial standpoint, the IoT can be applied anywhere from the factory to agricultural fields and offers the opportunity to place all the steps in a process onto an automated course held together by the overarching Internet.
