We can only re-certify them.
If you need an i1 Pro recalibrated, then need to get sent to switzerland.

So, if someone sends in a i1pro for re-cert to SpectraCal and it is out of spec (unlikely but let's assume it is), do they still get charged $175 for the re-cert? I ask because I assume the re-cert would then be pointless if the meter was out of spec and the owner would have to spend another several hundred dollars for the re-cal in Switzerland.


Also, do you update the LED tables during a re-cert (assuming the meter is in spec)?

Also, how does the meter verification service you offer differ from the re-cert? It's a whole lot cheaper ($50).

Thank you Joel for sharing this. I think a lot of folks who are new to the DIY aspect of calibrating don't have a clear understanding of the differences between certification and calibration, and what they mean quality-wise and cost-wise. Good questions PlasmaPZ80U!

The verification service is only for certain meters and is basically only a pass fail test.

For the i1 Pro the only service available would be the Recertification service. That would include getting the enhanced LED table added or updated as well.
