This article will review what is the difference between a Calibration Certificate and a Certificate of Calibration and what model numbers come with the Calibration Certificate.
The Calibration Certificate you have access to for a new thermal imager is created at the factory on the manufacturing floor and is meant to give you confidence the Camera met the specifications in the manual after is was built. It doesn't have a recalibration date to be recertified like a Certificate of Calibration, only the date it was done. Also note it was Certified By the QA Manager while a Certificate of Calibration is signed by the Calibration Technician that performed the Calibration procedure at the Service Center.

A Certificate of Calibration is created in the Calibration Lab and ideally the discussion about the need to have a Certificate of Calibration will come up during the ordering of the camera and it has an additional cost. The camera will go from the factory over to the Calibration Lab and after the evaluation the Certificate of Calibration will have a created date and the annual calibration date with a sticker to put on the camera stating the calibration date and the expiration date of one year.
If you need a Certificate of Calibration the camera would have to be sent back to the Fluke Calibration Lab and you would pay for the service. The Fluke Calibration Lab can be reached at 1-888-993-5853.
