RadComm equipment requires a minimum of an annual service to ensure that it is functioning properly and effectively. Your system may well produce a message:
We keep a record of all the calibrations we have carried out in the UK and will contact you when your system is due for calibration, based on our last visit to site, however please contact us if you require an earlier visit, or you need a further copy of your last certificate. We will book an appointment for an engineer to carry out the non invasive calibration on your vehicle system, so you can continue to operate. If you have a handheld device this will need to be provided to the engineer for approximately 15 minutes for initial testing.
During a calibration process, the engineer will
Use a radioactive source to measure the sensitivity of the system. This will provide an indication of the health of the scintillator.
Run a self test with a light source will be employed as a back up check of the correct function of the electronic circuitry.
Run a background count will be taken for reference.
Review prior alarms and discuss any issues you might have encountered.
Ensure the sound system is working correctly.
Check for on-line, which allows us to offer a rapid remote support, such as confirming a source from an alarm or suggesting small remedial actions you can take to avoid a costly site visit, if required.
If any faults are noted with the system, the engineer will endeavour to adjust the unit or to replace any problematic parts whilst on site, ensuring your system continues to operate effectively.
By default systems are calibrated after any repair work.
Certificates, which are increasingly be requested as part of audit purposes, are provided upon receipt of payment.
