Components will age over time and at some point the readings will no longer be in the specified parameters of the instrument. In order to maintain the integrity of this instrument, a calibration interval must be established. The calibration interval is the responsibility of the end user and is determined by the application measurement accuracy requirements. Select the appropriate Model Number to view the Manufacturer’s recommended calibration cycle. Contact (800) 835-2350 for questions about units not listed.

VIAVI offers two calibrations:

  • Standard Calibration which tests all parameters of the instrument for optimal measurements.
  • ANSI Z540-1 Calibration which tests all parameters of the instrument for optimal measurements with Pre and Post data readings.

To help maintain calibrations and repairs, Service contracts are available at a discounted price through VIAVI.
