San Diego, Ca. – June 5, 2018 – Advanced Test Equipment Rentals (ATEC), today announced that it has added harmonics & flicker calibrations to their A2LA certified ISO 17025 Scope of Accreditation, allowing ATEC to calibrate harmonics and flicker testing devices with ATEC’s accredited lab. ATEC is the leading rental provider of test equipment for EMC, communications, aerospace, automotive, semiconductor, consumer electronics and many other sectors, and now a calibration service provider.
The testing for harmonics and flicker fluctuations and disturbances which interfere with power supplies, presents a continuous challenge for manufacturers. Companies required to meet standards like EN/IEC 61000-3-2, EN/IEC 61000-3-3, IEC 61000-3-11, and IEC/EN 61000-3-12 that pertain specifically to harmonics and flicker, rely on ATEC to provide calibrated equipment for their tests and now to calibrate their harmonics and flicker test equipment. ATEC rents reliable equipment to companies in need of general purpose and unique types of tests, like harmonics and flicker, and also provides calibrations of test equipment. The ATEC accredited lab holds the largest scopes of accreditation in the industry, which includes ESD, surge, EFT, ring wave, automotive transients, and now harmonics and flicker. Companies can have their equipment calibrated from ATEC and rent other equipment simultaneously.
“Being one of the few companies in the United States that offers calibration for harmonics and flicker units places Advanced Test Equipment Rentals as an industry leader in test equipment,” said Javier Estrada, calibration lab manager at ATEC. “Adding harmonics and flicker to ATEC’s Scope of Accreditation allows ATEC to meet standards at a global level, and is a reflection on the quality of our A2LA accredited lab”.
