Annual recalibration is important to ensure repeatable and reliable
data. At our facility, we calibrate our own antennas, as well as, most
other brand antennas in accordance with SAE, ANSI, IEEE and CISPR specifications.
Calibration data can be provided for 1, 3 and 10 meter distances up to 40 GHz.
All Testing Equipment is NIST Traceable and comes with a calibration certificate
per ANSI/NCSL Z540 that conforms to an internal quality system based on ISO 17025.
To meet with your exacting standards, we also comply with the following standards and practices:
- ISO/IEC 17025
- ANSI/NCSL Z540-1
- MIL-STD 45662A
To ensure repeatable and reliable antenna measurements, our measurement test equipment
is recalibrated and traceable to NIST. This traceable test equipment results
in a good uncertainty to the true value being measured.
Calibration Data is maintained in a secure location as well as backed up to an
offsite location. A hardcopy of the calibration results will be kept on-site for
a minimum of 3 years and all soft copies will be maintained for 10 years.
To ensure an acurate and quick calibration service, please specify what standard
to perform the calibration to. Below is a list of the calibration standards that we
can calibrate to:
ANSI C63.5 - American National Standard for Electromagnetic Compatibility—Radiated Emission
Measurements in Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Control—Calibration of Antennas
(9 kHz to 40 GHz)
SAE ARP-958 - Electromagnetic Interference Measurement Antennas—Standard Calibration Method
IEEE 291 - IEEE Standard Methods for measuring Electromagnetic Field Strength of Sinusoidal
Continuos Waves, 30 Hz to 30 GHz
RCTA DO-160 - Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment
CISPR 16 - Specification for Radio Disturbance and Immunity Measuring Apparatus and
Other standard and calibration techniques are available upon request.
