Test Equipment Repair Services
Custom-Cal is well known for its expertise in a wide range of test equipment repair.
We have staffed, stocked, and equipped our laboratories in order to address major repair problems across a wide spectrum of test equipment. Examples

• Bit Error Rate Tester (BERT)
• Back Reflection Meter
• Wavelength Meter
• Optical Electrical Converter (OE)
• RF Spectrum Analyzer

Custom-Cal has developed a baseline cost for many calibrations we perform at our calibration laboratories and our On-site calibration prices are based on the same pricing structure. We can often recommend ways to save cost by combining more equipment into one service, marking appropriate items as “No Calibration Required” and customizing our calibration process to match the parameters that are critical to you. Custom-Cal is known worldwide as a premier repair provider having the capability to repair most brands of test equipment in-house. This factor alone can save your company thousands of dollars as compared to many calibration providers that focus on calibration while subcontracting your repairs to outside vendors or the OEM. Subcontracting creates an additional layer between you and the repair work and can result in:
• Longer lead times due to added transit.
• Higher cost as result of markups due to additional administrative, shipping and handling.
• Higher probability of damage, again due to additional shipping and handling
• Unexpected delays or inability to accurately target or predict completion date.
Used Test Equipment Sales (CC Market-Place)
CC Market-Place is a tool that allows the customer to directly buy and sell used test equipment while we mediate the risk.One may compare this service to several common online public auctions, however, working with Custom-Cal proves to be the most profitable and time effective solution for used test equipment. You will be able to sell your used test equipment at a fair, or often higher, valuation for working or repairable units. This is attributed to the fact that we are interested in longer term demand for a wide variety of used test equipment. In contrast, online public auctions may depress TE prices because of various risks involved, which you can avoid by choosing the Custom-Cal brand. For example, our trained experts personally evaluate each piece of used test equipment to eliminate any information risk that is often caused by the generic descriptions and pictures provided by common auction sites. The CC Marketplace also distinguishes itself by cutting down on the heavy reseller price-setting involvement which means lower buyer and seller fees.
