ISO17025 Calibration and Verification

Every PPA5500-TE is supplied with a comprehensive UKAS ISO17025 certificate, featuring power calibration at a range of power factors from unity to 0.01, as well as a UKAS Traceable calibration certificate up to 2MHz. N4L have developed a number of bespoke power calibrators in order to verify the accuracy of every power analyzer supplied over its entire frequency range, this is surprisingly uncommon within the instrumentation industry. Furthermore, development of an ISO17025 (UKAS) accredited Closed Loop Calorimeter in partnership with Oxford University (UK) has verified the performance of the N4L custom designed power calibration rigs with a very low uncertainty level, providing absolute confidence that the wide band performance of all N4L power analyzers is market leading.
