PRESS RELEASE : Fluke Announces New MET/CAL® Plus Calibration

EVERETT, WA - Fluke Corporation, the world's leading supplier of test, measurement and calibration hardware and software, has developed MET/CAL® Plus V 7 calibration procedures for three precision Tektronix® oscilloscope series. The new calibration procedures reduce performance-verification time to approximately 60 minutes or less, which offers a substantial reduction in downtime.

The recently introduced MET/CAL Plus V 7 is designed to meet the increasing demand for highly accurate, on-site calibration at a lower total cost. With the new automated procedures, technicians can conduct their own verification procedures on the TDS 5000 Series, TDS 6000 Series and the TDS 7000 Series oscilloscopes. Beyond the calibration savings and nearly hands-off operation for the unit under test (UUT), the procedures benefit Tektronix scope users through:

  • Automated calibration assures consistent test results
  • Automated generation of test reports containing complete results
  • Complete conformance to Tektronix's performance verification procedures and frequency coverage for the full 6GHz bandwidth in the 6000 series
  • Enhanced efficiency. Minimized lead changes.
  • Automated cursor measurements which eliminate tedious manual setups
