RF and communications test-and-measurement house Willtek Communications is now offering calibration services from its calibration laboratory that's traceable to ISO/IEC Standard 17025 and accredited by Deutscher Kalibrierdienst (DKD). The DKD is a member of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC).

The lab now supports service and manufacturing with precise RF measurements and equipment calibration, with minimal measurement uncertainties. Willtek claims this improvement will provide users with higher accuracy for its testing products, such as the Model 9101 Handheld Spectrum Analyzer and the Model 4400 Mobile Phone Tester.

Willtek's lab was first accredited in 1992. With its recent accreditation to international standards, the company claims enhanced calibration services for RF equipment. This also results in improved accuracy of Willtek's test-and-measurement products, as well as the availability of calibration services for Willtek's RF instruments.

For those of you who want to look it up, Willtek's accreditation is filed under registration number DKD-K-08201. That registration ensures that measurements are documented and traced back to national measurement standards. Multilateral agreements in the European Cooperation for Accreditation (EA) and ILAC ensure that calibration certificates issued by Willtek's calibration lab are internationally recognized.

Calibration labs of the German industry and other institutions are combined in the DKD, a calibration service organization supervised to pre-defined criteria by Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, a German federal agency concerned with physical and technical issues. The accreditation is related to measurement procedures and the persons carrying out the tests.
