Aiming at the problem that the manual calibration in the power meter calibration is inefficient and error-prone, and the existing automatic calibration equipment is cumbersome, this paper proposes a pipelined automatic calibration solution for the instrument. Combined with the instrument automatic calibration device and the assembly line equipment, the assembly line calibration operation of the instrument verification is realized, and multiple power meters can be calibrated at the same time. This paper introduces the structure of the power meter automatic calibration assembly line system and the design of hardware and software. The experimental results show that the designed system can realize the fully automated calibration operation of the instrument.
