Calibration involves the adjustment of measuring instruments basically by comparing the values obtained from a measuring instrument with a standard instrument whose output value is known. This project is focused at developing an application used to calibrate measuring instruments (oscilloscope) in the laboratory. This application eases the traditional inputting of output value manually from the calibrator (Fluke 5500A in this case) to the oscilloscope (Agilent DSO5012A oscilloscope in this case). In addition, the application determines if the obtained measured voltage from the oscilloscope falls within a range of minimum and maximum voltage calculated based on the calibrator outputted voltage. The application finally displays this data on a table for easy analysis. Furthermore, the project was developed on the .NET environment in which the graphic user interface (GUI) is a basic windows form. Visual Studio 2012 was used for the design, compilation and execution. C# language was used as the programming language. Finally, testing and running the application shows its usefulness in easing the calibration of the measuring instrument (oscilloscope) in the laboratory as well as analyzing and keeping record of the values obtained.
