Test manufacturers cooperate on calibration

Rohde and Schwarz has formed a relationship with Tektronix Service Solutions to provide customers in North America a single-source for calibration services.

The significant move sees two independent test and measurement manufacturers joining forces to provide customers with a comprehensive solution for all their calibration needs.

Rohde & Schwarz says that no longer do companies using test, measurement and control instrumentation have the resources to manage multiple calibration vendors, nor do they have spare high-end products to enable sending units offsite without causing downtime.

With this relationship, the company is now able to offer customers in the US and Canada a single-source calibration solution while Tektronix Service Solutions extends its capabilities and is now able to offer customers calibration services for high-end communications test equipment.

“Our customers have been asking for a trusted single-source solution for calibrating their entire set of communications test and other instrumentation to help reduce downtime,” said Scott Bausback, President and CEO of Rohde & Schwarz Inc.  “

Paul Caragher, President, Tektronix Service Solutions, added, “By partnering with Rohde & Schwarz we are combining the depth of knowledge that only two OEMs can bring together with the breadth of capability Tektronix Service Solutions offers, giving customers the best overall value and highest quality calibration solution on the market.”

Rohde & Schwarz operates a lab in Columbia, Maryland that is ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited. As well as offering a full range of services including repair, calibration, updates and instrument upgrades. These services are also available on-site by a mobile calibration team.

Tektronix Service Solutions provides on-site, mobile and depot-based calibration services. It can handle more than 130,000 models from 9,000 manufacturers.
