DataComm Certifier Recalibration

IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. recommends two types of recalibration. A schedule of both field and factory recalibration should be followed to ensure the highest level of testing for your LAN Cable Certifier.

Field recalibration should be done at a minimum of once a week or whenever test patchcords have been changed. A detailed description of this procedure is outlined in the LANTEK® 6/7 User Manual.

Factory recalibration is recommended once a year. The Certifier needs to be returned to IDEAL's repair facility and an RMA (Return Material Authorization) must be obtained prior to the return. The RMA can be obtained through IDEAL 's Customer Service at 800-854-2708.
