EML: Unfaltering Commitment to Calibration


Electronic Metrology Laboratory, LLC (EML, LLC) has provided the telecommunications industry with calibration services for over 20 years. EML provides National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) traceable calibration services for electronic, physical and dimensional test and measuring equipment.

“When we started out, the cellular industry was just beginning to grab a foothold,” said Scott Barlow, CEO at EML. “In the late 1990s, our focus was on the paging and two-way industries. Over the years, we’ve diversified, and we’re proud to support many cellular and wireless companies with calibration.”

EML specializes in:

  • Electronic Calibration – from handheld DMMs and oscilloscopes to 26.5 GHz spectrum analyzers and signal sources.
  • Mechanical Calibration – physical and dimensional calibration services are traceable to the NIST and can provide 17025 accredited calibrations.
  • On-Site Calibration – mobile calibration laboratories are environmentally controlled and fully equipped with the same state-of-the-art equipment found at EML’s main laboratory.

According to Jason Powell, VP of Sales at Marketing, EML has always had a great rapport within the communications industry and much of that has come from continuously evolving right along with it. At EML, much effort has been put into testing, implementing quality systems, and providing on-site capabilities over the years, servicing independent tower operators and major carriers nationwide.

“To keep up with technology and to evolve as the industry we serve moves forward, we’ve continuously invested in new equipment, systems, and processes. Our goal is to be more efficient and save our customers time and money,” added Powell.

EML tailors its operations based on customer feedback to make the experience seamless. “We provide on-site calibration to clients to bring fast and convenient service nationwide. This is an efficient method for our clients to get equipment calibrated quickly and minimize downtime.  If there is a unit that needs repairs or parts, then these will be done in our lab located in Tennessee,” said Jeff Goble, EML Calibration Lab Manager.

EML also provides access to an online asset management platform. The system stores client assets, calibration date, and expiration dates, plus sends out notifications of upcoming calibration requirements. “The web tool is especially useful for field service managers or owners to review all assets and make sure equipment is calibrated. EML provides access to this information 24/7,” noted Goble.

Since carriers require calibration compliance, EML’s clients can easily provide certifications. EML’s Quality Management System is registered to the ISO 17025:2005 quality standard and audited by a third-party.

EML testing and calibration services include, but are not limited to:

  • Passive Intermodulation (PIM) Gear
  • Cable and Antenna Sweepers
  • Cell Fiber Testing, Ground Testers

EML’s longtime customers gladly vouch for the efficiency of their services. “Jeff Goble and his Team have been taking care of us for the past five years with professional onsite calibration for all of our testing equipment and yearly calibrations that are required in our industry,” said Randy Randolph, owner of Midland Tower Construction. “I recommend this to any company that has multiple units like we do. For many years we sent our testing equipment back to the manufacturer for its yearly calibration. Now we have about 18 to 20 units that require this service. It’s a very easy decision for me as a business owner to have Jeff’s Onsite Calibration team come to our Midland office on a Saturday morning to take care of all the calibrations in one day.”

“Communications is the backbone of this company, and we’ve been doing it a long time,” said Barlow. “We’re proud to serve the wireless industry to keep technicians safe and equipment calibrated.”

Electronic Metrology Laboratory, LLC (EML) is a Nashville based calibration company, certified by the Perry Johnson Laboratory Accreditation. Since 1997, EML has provided customers an unfaltering commitment to service and calibration. For more information or to contact a representative, visit https://www.emlcalibration.com/.
