Q3 Reduced - $300

Attenuators Set of 5 Power Meter

The intent of this ILC/PT is to provide a means for the participant to determine the appropriateness and effectiveness of participant practices, training, and measurement uncertainty relating to the calibration of RF Attenuators between 1 and 26.5 GHz.

This ILC/PT contains a set of 5 attenuators; each is a 20 dB, 3.5 mm device.

Participants will utilize their practices to perform 60 separate attenuation measurements, as they connect each device, perform dB Loss measurement at a predetermined four frequencies, remove the device, rotate the device per instructions, reconnect, perform measurements at the same four frequencies, remove and rotate the device again and reconnect to perform a third set of measurements. The average of the three measurements at each frequency is reported, and the entire process is repeated with the remaining 4 attenuators.

Inspection Parts - Pin, Aluminum Cast Artifact

The intent of this ILC/PT is to provide a means for the participant organization to evaluate the ability of a technician to make measurements using dimensional inspection test equipment. For this ILC/PT, micrometers, height gauges and calipers are the only inspection measuring equipment to be used.

This program involves the measurement of distances, locations, and the inside and outside diameters of an aluminum artifact with approximate dimensions 150 mm x 100 mm x 35 mm, and a set of Deltronic pins. Reference values are obtained by CMM measurement. The associated reference uncertainties are typically on the order of 2 µm to 3 µm. This program is very suitable for participants who measure machined work pieces using hand gages such as micrometers, calipers, height gages and indicators.

Mass Level One

New class 1 - Pre-Qualification is required to participate in this ILC/PT. 

The primary purpose of this ILC/PT is to provide a means and opportunity for participants to demonstrate their proficiency (e.g. effective and appropriate use of the participant’s equipment, procedures, methods, and measurement uncertainty, and the ability to follow instructions) in the calibration of a Class 1 weight set.  

By participating, participants will demonstrate technical competence for the measurement of parameters associated with weights of similar size and weight class.  This weight set contains 10 weights ranging from 100 g to 500 mg. Participants will use their lab procedures to perform measurements of each weight in the set.

Participants are expected to be familiar with handling and calibration of mass standards, have all necessary auxiliary equipment to support the measurement and have measurement uncertainties appropriate for calibration of similar standards.

Pin Gauge Set

This program consists of the calibration of twelve pin gauges varying in size from 0.0615 inch to 0.2495 inch. The intent of this test is to provide a means for participants to demonstrate competence in the calibration of these or similar devices. The associated uncertainty is in the order of 60 µin.

Participants are expected to be familiar with, and have appropriate lab equipment and measurement uncertainties for calibration of similar devices.

On Sale, Pressure PRESSURE/VAC-111
Q3 Reduced - $300

Compound Gauge

The intent of this ILC/PT is to provide a means for the participant laboratory to determine the appropriateness and effectiveness of participant practices, training, and measurement uncertainty calculations relating to the measurement of Pressure and Vacuum.  

This kit contains a compound Pressure/Vacuum Gauge. Participants will be asked to make 5 Pressure measurements between 5 and 30 psi, as well as 5 Vacuum measurements between 5 and 25 inHg on a digital gauge having 0.01 psi resolution.

Participants are expected to be familiar with, and have appropriate lab equipment and measurement uncertainties for calibration of similar devices.
