RMS was established in 2004 and appointed as the ONLY Fluke authorised service centre in South Africa. Les Wesson, who started with Fluke South Africa in the early 1980s, has since transformed the company into a level 2 BEE business with 51% shares held by historically disadvantaged groups, RMS is a totally autonomous service company, running as an independant, third party, electrical test, and measurement equipment service Centre. The company prides itself in the local support, both in repair and calibration, of not only Fluke and Megger instruments, for which it is and authorised service centre, but also equipment manufactured by most other manufacturers.
RMS prides itself in its SANAS accredited scope of measurement capabilities since they are accredited for the smallest uncertaintiesin a few parameters in South Africa, outside of the National Metrology institute of South Africa (NMISA). Calibrations are performed according to the manufacturer's performance verification procedures wherever possible, and it is standard practice for the instrument's performance to be checked for compliance with the manufacturer's accuracy specifications. If found to be outside these performance limits, adjustments are performed and the "as found" and "as left" results reported on the calibration certificate. This enables the customer to take remedial action if required, which, may result from an instrument being found to have been performing outside the manufacturer's accuracy specifications. At the end of each calibration, a calibration certificate is issued, which bears the SANAS accreditation logo. This provides not only local recognition that the RMS calibration technology has met and continues to meet the requirements of ISO IEC 17025 as proven throuogh independent third party assessment by SANAS, but also international recognition of calibration performed in South Africa. This is of particular importance if a company has overseas principals and needs to comply with international standards.
