Test and Inspection


100% Test and Inspection is carried out on all finished product against customer approved drawings, and to any customer requirements and Kaliber set procedures. This ensures that goods received by our customer are fully compliant quality product.

In-process inspection is carried out on all terminations that cannot be inspected at the final inspection stage. This inspection is recorded electronically on a tablet and kept on file for future reference.

5 M.K. test systems with the capacity to test up to 768 points are used to test basic to complex wire harnesses, archiving test results for traceability. Test leads are internally manufactured to mate with product allowing for the best testing conditions possible. Specific functions include:

  • Continuity measurement of every connection
  • Detection of short circuits at low voltage
  • Detection and analysis of crossed wires
  • High voltage insulation resistance test (maximum 1500VAC and 2500VDC)
  • Hipot insulation test DC or AC
  • Capacitance measurement
  • Distance to short
  • Single point testing for continuity and short circuits



MS2028C Anritsu RF VNA tester is a 2-port, 2-path, fully-reversing VNA; that measures and displays all S-parameters with a single connection. The Anritsu is used to verify that the coax terminations and coax itself is working within its desired parameters. Specific functions include:

  • 5kHz to 20GHz range
  • Two-active-port, fully-reversing VNA
  • Measures all four S-parameters with a single connection
  • 350 usec per data point, ideal for filter tuning
  • 12-term error correction algorithm
  • Distance Domain option
  • Time Domain option includes Gated Time Domain, LP Processing, and Phasor Impulse mode

In addition, Kaliber possess the following test and inspection measuring equipment:

  • High voltage DC testing 10KV for insulation testing
  • 80A PSU unit for full functional testing of product
  • Multimeters
  • Oscilloscope
  • Decibel Meter
  • Signal Generator

First Article Inspection Record (FAIR)

Kaliber can produce a FAIR on request. FAIR’s are produced to BS EN9102 ‘Quality systems – First article inspection’. Kaliber can produce the FAIR to our own documentation or customer’s internal reports.
