November 27, 2006 -- The fiber-optic connectivity provider Timbercon, Inc. announced that it will be offering recertification services to its customers.
The company says the recertification services focus on examining, testing and documenting products for mechanical and optical performance, to ensure a minimum possibility of product failure during operation, and that operating costs are also kept to a minimum. Upon completion of the recertification process the product receives an updated performance/test report and a "re-certified" status.
The company says it will offer the services to customers regardless of manufacturer as part of a preventative maintenance plan. According to the company, recertification is a cost-effective way to keep fiber-optic products in good operating condition, greatly reducing the opportunity for a product to fail during a critical operation.
According to the company, recertification is of particular importance for products used in testing, such as master calibration cables and loopbacks. Recertification assures the legitimacy of the test process and ensures that the highest quality products are being used for any customers testing application; this helps avoid false failures which can decrease yield numbers.
In addition to the recertification process, the company says it will repair or replace customer products to ensure they meet performance specifications once recertification is complete.
In addition to recertification, the company also offers test and analysis services, which it says allows for non-Timbercon manufactured products to be tested to the company's high standards. Testing for insertion loss, back reflection, attenuation, interferometric geometry and extinction ratios (for PM cables) is available.
