Performance Check Kits are designed to be used as;An In-house Calibration Tool.
Performance Check Kits are designed to easily integrate the manufacturer's approved verification standard into your in-house quality processes for equipment verification.
A Performance Verification Tool
Designed to confirm and verify that your tester is operating to published, specified standards.
A Troubleshooting Tool.
For troubleshooting Cirris testers to determine possible tester malfunctions.
What's Included with each Performance Check Kit?A Users Manual
The step-by-step manual walks the user through each phase of the verification process and provides blank documentation sheets for recording parametric test data.
The test standards, (examples on left) are certified gauges with traceability to the N.I.S.T.. When used in accordance with the verification procedures outlined in the manual, traceability can be transferred to your Cirris cable tester.
Depending on the model of your tester, each check kit contains: (A) Zero-Ohm board, (B) Precision Resistive standard, (C) A Capacitance check standard. (The 'Precision Standards' allow you to verify your tester with the same level of precision as Cirris technicians qualifying units in for calibration.)
Please Note: The type and number of test standards in each kit vary depending on the capabilities of each model.
Certificate of Calibration * (prior to 1 Jan 2010)
Each kit contains a Certificate of Calibration that provides traceability to the N.I.S.T. The 'standards' are calibrated and certified for a service period of five years, after which they must be replaced.
A Certificate of Calibration * (after 1 Jan 2010)
Each kit contains a Certificate of Calibration that provides traceability to the N.I.S.T. The 'standards' are calibrated and certified for a service period of two years, after which they must be replaced.
When Cirris first introduced Performance Check Kits, ISO-9000 and other quality systems did not exist! As more of our customers implement quality systems, the 5-year service period of our PCHK's was becoming problematic. (Specifically, for customers who must perform a final certification before a kit can be taken out of service.) If a kit fails final certification it can render invalid all testing that was performed on testers verified with the kit since its last certification. We felt that a two year period would better serve our customer's needs.
What Tests are Performed with the kits?Signal Routing System Check.
All kits verify the proper operation of the signal routing system by scanning all test points on the tester. Each tester model generates a unique code as part of this test which must conform to a known standard. This verification process insures that all points are functioning as expected. The zero Ohm test adapter is the standard used for the 'Signal Routing System' test.
Please Note: This process cannot rightly be described as a "calibration" process, (because you cannot 'dial in' or 'tweak' a setting to make a correction to a unit.) More accurately, this process should be thought of as a process to verify that each test point is properly functioning and is operating as designed.
Resistance Measurement System Check.
Tester models which have the capacity to measure resistance values during the normal test cycle must have the "resistance measuring system" verified by comparing resistances found at selected points in the tester against the known resistance values of the 'Resistive Test Standard'. The 'Resistor Leak' adapter (shown on left) is the test standard used for this type of verification.
Capacitance Standards Measured and Verified. In a similar manner, testers with other testing capabilities; IE: Capacitance measuring, 4 wire Kelvin measurements, diode presence and bias etc., each have their capabilities tested when the proper test adapter is used to verify that capability.
Measurement of Voltage Outputs on Hipot Testers.
Using a high impedance voltmeter (or a standard voltmeter with a High Voltage Probe attached) the verification kits designed for hipot testers will measure and verify output voltages of the 'high voltage supply'. This process verifies that the hipot test voltages selected by the user during a high voltage test are actually at the voltage level selected. Again, this verification process cannot rightly be called a calibration process because there are no adjustments that you can make to bring testers into 'compliance'. If the tester fails any verification test the analyzer must be returned to Cirris Systems for repair.
Why Should I Buy these Kits?
Performance Verification Check Kits can save your company time and money by bringing 'in-house' the ability to verify that your Cirris tester is working properly and within its published specifications. In just a few minutes you can confidently certify that your Cirris test system is in compliance with the manufacture's standards.
Please Note: Your yearly calibration cost savings will be dramatically increased if you own multiple units of one tester model because one performance check kit can verify any number of testers of the same model type.
