Verification and Calibration of Fiber-Optic Instruments
EXFO’s TKS-CAL Optical Calibration Kits for in-house instrument verification put users in control of all their calibration operations.The TKS-CAL kits are used to manually calibrate power meters as well as verify light sources, attenuators and OTDRs without causing any downtime and costly shipping. They are designed to evolve as needs change.
Absolute power calibration of power meters
Output power level, stability and central wavelength of light sources
Insertion loss and linearity of single-mode optical attenuators
Distance, dynamic range, linearity and dead zone of single-mode OTDRs
All reference standards used in TKS-CAL kits are traceable to national laboratory standards like NIST and METAS.
Each TKS-CAL includes very detailed explanations as well as step-by-step instructions on how to perform a fully ISO-17025 compliant calibration and verification of fiber-optic test instruments. An Excel-based and fully customizable calibration certificate template is also included with each kit. In addition, a general guide providing detailed explanations on procedures and uncertainty calculations is included with the basic kit.
