Stuttgart/Böblingen, GERMANY, 2021-09-28 - Stuttgart-based Vector announces the launch of an exclusive collaboration with Keysight Technologies, a worldwide acting and leading calibration service provider. The aim is to enable Vector's customers to use VT System hardware especially in areas where specifications of the development process and quality management require regular control and compliance with the system specification. Keysight's ISO/IEC 17025:2017 compliant calibration services help ensure that these quality requirements are met.

Vector's VT System product family includes highly flexible, modular systems in a variety of sizes for performing open- and closed-loop HIL testing in a wide range of industries: from automotive and aerospace to automation and medical. As the accuracy of electronic components in all test equipment is subject to certain natural variations over time, it is necessary to calibrate the VT System hardware at regular intervals to maintain the intended precision.

With Keysight Technologies, Vector gains a renowned calibration service provider with the expertise not only to perform calibrations in accordance with the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard, but furthermore, meeting the requirements of the automotive standard IATF 16949:2016 when accredited calibration is provided.
To ensure precise and reliable measurement results for VT System components, the hardware is not only calibrated, but necessary adjustment work is also carried out. After successful completion, the process is documented with a comprehensive calibration certificate and detailed measurement report.

To ensure that the need for accredited calibration services can also be met for globally active companies, Keysight has a worldwide network of service centers. For example, calibration of new equipment can be performed at Keysight's laboratory in Böblingen, Germany. For recalibration of modules already in the field, Keysight service centers are available in China, Germany, India, Japan, and the USA. Having a local or nearby presence minimizes logistics efforts. Customers thus benefit not only from accredited calibration services for VT System components, but also from short delivery times and reduced shipping costs.
