Calibration Object Type

1. Calibration Object Type
The MCS supports four different types of calibration objects that can be used in parallel. The attenuator, cable and preamplifier groups have no intrinsic semantics attached (the values are simply added to the Spectran readings), so you could use them for other equipment types as well. The antenna group may be treated special in unit conversions.
You can use the buttons to list the different object types in the list below.


Calibration Object List

2. Calibration Object List
Listing of the available objects of the selected calibration types. The topmost entry is the setting for “not attached”.


Add new Calibration Object

3. Add new Calibration Object
Create a new calibration object of the current type.


Remove selected Calibration Object

4. Remove selected Calibration Object
Remove the selected calibration object from the database.


Calibration Object Label

5. Calibration Object Label
The name under which the object will appear in the MCS.


Calibration Data

6. Calibration Data
A list of calibration values to be used at specific frequencies.


Remove Data Line

7. Remove Data Line
Remove the selected frequency and gain value from this object.


Import Calibration Object

8. Import Calibration Object
Import a calibration object from an external file.


Export Calibration Object

9. Export Calibration Object

Calibration Trace Preview

10. Calibration Trace Preview
Shows a preview of the effect the current calibration object would have on a measurement. The frequency and value ranges are scaled automatically based on the available data. You can switch between a logarithmic and linear scaling for the value axis.
