Attenuator Calibration Services

Attenuator Calibration Services

RF attenuators can be used for a variety of different purposes within many RF systems. These RF attenuators can be fixed, switched or even continuously variable.

We offer attenuator calibration services at competitive prices with a quick turnaround. 

Choose our basic calibration service and we’ll get your equipment turned around within 5 working days. Do you need your instruments back as soon as possible? If so, then choose express calibration.  This gets your instruments turned around within 2 working days.

We calibrate attenuators from a range of manufacturers. Is your attenuator in need of calibration? Use the “Request a Quote” form and we will get a quote back to you within the next 24 hours.

What is an attenuator?

Attenuators are usually passive devices made from simple voltage divider networks. Switching between different resistances forms adjustable stepped attenuators and continuously adjustable ones using potentiometers. For higher frequencies precisely matched low VSWR resistance networks are used.

Fixed attenuators in circuits are used to lower voltage, dissipate power, and to improve impedance matching. In measuring signals, attenuator pads or adapters are used to lower the amplitude of the signal a known amount to enable measurements, or to protect the measuring device from signal levels that might damage it. Attenuators are also used to ‘match’ impedance by lowering apparent SWR (Standing Wave Ratio).
