What are the common issues? AVX

How will my measurements be affected if the product is out of calibration?

Tests performed with out of calibration test sets can return to service devices which are not performing to regulated specifications.

What are the most common implications of these issues to the business?

  • Inaccurate results: Calibration cycles greater than recommended may not yield accurate measurements
  • Inaccurate measurements resulting from uncalibrated tools may violate industry standards and violate regulatory body requirements
  • Tests found to be performed by an out of calibration test set can result in containment actions and unplanned rework
  • Devices calibrated on uncalibrated test sets may function improperly, cause interference issues violating government regulatory requirements, and/or damage other equipment
