Abstract:

This test operations procedure TOP sets forth general and specific test procedures for measuring the technical performance of Radiac Calibrators. A comparison of the test results with the criteria of the technical specifications permits an evaluation of their suitability as Radiac Calibrators. This TOP applies to Radiac Calibrators designed for field-use only. This TOP describes three tests Characteristic Calibration Energy, which characterizes the test items radiation energy in a test cavity Calibration Accuracy, which determines whether the test item can, with the required accuracy, calibrate each of its anticipated types of radiac meters and Repeatability, which determines whether the test item can, with the same accuracy, repeat the required calibrations.
