4. Conditions for Calibration

- Temperature: (23 ± 5) °C.

- Humidity: no higher than 80% RH.

5. Prepare for Calibration

- Make sure the power supply to the DMM meets the requirements specified in the catalog, the fuses, the protective circuit are still working properly.

- The DMM should be placed in the calibration environment for at least 8 hours.

- MFC and DMM must be turned on and dried for at least 30 minutes prior to calibration.

6. Begin the calibration

a. Outside Check
