ErgoKit with NIST Assessment Equipment

item#: EKT101

This take on our renowned ErgoKit® ergonomic assessment tool kit features NIST calibrated equipment to provide precision measurement. The equipment in the standard ErgoKit® is calibrated to factory specifications, but are not calibrated to the NIST standard that is required by the Quality Control department in some companies. Your calibration department should be able to let you know if your company requires NIST-calibrated equipment for assessments. NIST-calibrated equipment typically requires recalibration every 6 months to 1 year to maintain adherence to the NIST standard (necessary recalibration period varies; see your calibration department for details).

Please note that NIST calibration adds one week to delivery time; scroll down for more details and specifications.

essential kit for my company
June 18, 2013
We use several of these and love them. They make it very easy to grab your measuring equipment and go! We used to have drawers full of unorganized gauges and it didn't work very well. I highly recommend this kit. I would also recommend using the force gauge with the included straps and carabiners; it made it much easier for me to quickly do pull/push force testing.
