Using Calibration to Optimize Performance in Crucial Measurements
Maury Microwave Corp. announced the introduction of an entirely new line of instrument-grade precision components designed to provide users with the right level of performance at the right price. This new product line, TactiCal™ by Maury, includes calibration standards manufactured to the same high quality and exacting requirements that have made Maury’s metrology-grade products the Gold Standard of the Test & Measurement industry for over 50 years.
TactiCal precision components and calibration standards include 50 ohm coaxial VNA calibration kits, opens, fixed loads and shorts in 1.85 mm, 2.4 mm, 3.5 mm and type N. This new product line also includes between-series and in-series coaxial adapters in these same connector types. Waveguide-to-coax adapters will also be available in the future. Maury’s road map for the TactiCal Solutions Line includes a Q3-2010 introduction of the 2.92 mm family of precision components.
As Maury's Vice President, Worldwide Sales & Marketing - Components Products, Ken Hargrove puts it, “There are many applications across the measurement, production and field service environments where a repeatable and credible measurement made with durable precision components is the requirement. Maury TactiCal precision components fit this requirement to a 'T' and our customers will be delighted by their price and performance.” Why should users be forced to choose between compromising their measurements or committing to a costly schedule of frequent component replacement? Adds Hargrove, “We’ll give you best-in-class performance and you can expect better than 500 matings. Now that’s accuracy and durability.”
TactiCal calibration standards are ideal for applications that demand accuracy and repeatability, but don't require high cost metrology-grade/lab-grade performance. This means the TactiCal line can be offered at a significant cost savings to the user while providing the ruggedness and durability needed for high-volume field service and repetitive measurement applications. Competitive prices, combined with high availability and short delivery times, make Maury TactiCal™ Solutions very attractive to users and industry managers alike.
