Vecta Labs is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited for PIM testing
It took a river of coffee, reams of paper and four years of hard work but in March 2021, Vecta Labs (as Vecta Pty Ltd) were delighted to finally be granted accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025!
The accredited electrical test methods are in Passive RF and Microwave Devices; intermodulation level measurement (PIM); Return Loss (uniformity of impedance) and Insertion Loss and Isolation.
The company faced significant challenges meeting the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025. The Standard requires that the Laboratory performs proficiency testing and that equipment is calibrated with metrological traceability in place. Under normal circumstances, these requirements wouldn’t pose too much of a problem.
But when no one else in the world has been accredited to the tests you’re performing, that’s a massive obstacle to climb!
