Precision Calibration Equipment and Reference Standards

go right to the catalog! Skip the INTRO, Go RIGHT to the CATALOG!
This page has all kinds of calibration aids, reference standard quality components and related items. Everything from ultra-precision resistors and capacitors, voltage references and special cables to specialized calibrations fixtures.

Here's your chance to get some truly amazing things at great prices. Quantities are very limited, so when they are gone, that's it.


* NAVIGATION: To make your life easier, and help you find exactly what you want, we have broken the on-line equipment catalogs into smaller sections. Just CLICK on the item you are looking for at the left, to see the matching catalog. Large graphical catalogs are a bit SLOW, so please give them a bit of time to load. The top header of each catalog is largely the same, so don't think you are stuck in one place!

You can order anything here just by picking up the phone, and calling (250) 769-1834 during normal office hours, 8:30AM to 4:30PM PST, or FAX to (250) 769-4106. OR, Email your order to Susan CLICKHERE.

Shipping*SHIPPING: Preferred and Alternate Methods as of June 4, 2013, CLICK for FULL DETAILS ON OUR FAQ Page. Rates are now changing rapidy, often with little notice to us, so all the data has been transferred to the FAQ page for speedy updating.

* E-Mail Susan if you want a quote for shipping to other destinations, or for something heavy. Sorry, we can't safely send most individual small parts in a regular letter envelope, they get destroyed by the automated handling equipment. Sometimes we can ship very rugged parts in a small padded envelope by letter post. Ask Susan.

*There is a packing charge for large or heavy equipment, see the FAQ for details.

*If we have your valid data on file, you can just click on the ORDER email link to place an order and indicate your approval to bill, and we will do the rest. We keep your active information for ONE YEAR for your convenience.

*If this is the first time you have dealt with us, you can phone +1 (250) 769-1834 or FAX +1 (250) 769-4106 to supply the billing info, or send it by the email link, as you prefer. We accept VISA/MC, international money order, Paypal (to Susan@Okanagan.net), and bank wire transfer. Please note that there are transaction fees with Paypal and wire transfer payments, the wire transfer fee is frankly horrifying.

We accept VISA/MC or international money order

* CONDITION: To answer your questions, YES, we completely check and inspect all used equipment, and do not offer any we feel is substandard. That gear is normally scrapped, broken down for parts, or may get offered as-is in the HOT DEALS section, with the unit's condition clearly identified. If there are any marks or detracting features, we clearly state them in the listing. Before shipment, we burn in the equipment for 24 hrs. again and re-check to be sure it is good prior to shipment.

* The CATALOG will appear below shortly!
Don't forget these illustrated sections take a few seconds to load, but they are worth the wait!

EDC E100C, 10.0000V calibration
CLICK for bigger PIC!
0-11.1111VDC Standard
EDC E100C low impedance DC MV Standard, has 5 stepped selectors and one variable, for 5.5 digit resolution from 11.1111VDC full scale to zero. Has 10V or MV output (on rear apron), with remote sensing for Volts output. Has 0.01% +110uV overall accuracy, with 110uV ripple.
Easily drives 1K load at 10V output, great for meter calibrations, circuit simulation, and as an external reference for other systems. Warms up quickly (good to 0.5mV within 10 minutes). Selectable positive, negative and zero outputs, great for linearity and polarity error testing. Uses stabilized reference, precision divider, and chopper stabilized opamp driver. NIST traceable calibration certificate available for an additional $75. Excellent operation as shown.

Frequency Standard

Vectron FS-321S Frequency Standard, 19 inch rack mounted, has front panel isolated sine outputs of 10Mhz, 5Mhz and 1Mhz, 1V into 50 ohms (duplicated in parallel jack on rear panel). Has internal battery back up, and can also be run from external 22-30VDC. Perfect as a master shop standard, and synchronizing source.
Coarse and fine front panel adjustments to the internal OCXO, absoulate accuracy and stability are typically 3-5 parts in 10-10. We set it to our Efratom atomic clock before shipment.
Fresh NIST traceable calibration certificate included, PLUS full MANUAL copy. Excellent appearance and operation as shown. Allow 24 hour thermal stabilization period before use in a new location.

ESI decades are now made by TEGAM
110K Precision Resistor Decade, with six decades, down to 0.1 Ohm
ESI (Electro Scientific Industries, products now made by TEGAM), high stability non-inductive wirewound decade standard, has tilting desk stand. With 0.5W rating, 0.01% initial accuracy, and 0.02% long term, 5ppm/degree C temperature stability, it is a great calibration reference, much more compact than the larger GR 1433 decade boxes. This unit is in excellent condition, and well within initial accuracy. NIST traceable calibration certificate included.
