With the new flexible standards in MET/CAL Plus Version 7.2, calibration professionals can write or modify existing procedures to enable substitution of equivalent standards rather than being locked into a specific reference model. This can save significant development time and effort in situations where professionals are writing procedures for multiple labs that may have different instrument models to support. Additionally, Version 7.2 includes more than 15 enhancements to the MET/CAL procedure language that make procedure writing easier and more powerful, including named variables and slewing for user-configured instruments. A detailed list of these features is provided on the MET/SUPPORT Web site located at

The MET/CAL procedure library is updated to include a range of new or enhanced procedures for equipment including spectrum analyzers, signal sources and oscilloscopes. To view or download procedures from the on-line library, go to

Fluke MET/CAL Plus Software Version 7.2 is available immediately at a US list price of $7,860. The upgrade price is $1,120 (US list). Active MET/SUPPORT Gold members will receive a free upgrade.
