An IFR 6000 is a flight line or ramp test set used for testing aircraft communication and navigation systems. An IFR 6000 is known for its accurate measurements of transmitter frequency, output power, modulation and receiver sensitivity.

To withhold an IFR 6000’s accuracy, frequent calibration services should be performed. Like other measuring devices, an IFR 6000 can drift out of calibration. With frequent calibration, operation reliability of an IFR 6000 can be ensured.

Without calibration, an IFR 6000 can pose many risks to including:


If an IFR 6000 is not calibrated, inaccurate measurement results are likely. This could lead to a wide variety of other risks, including safety threats.


When an IFR 6000 is calibrated, the equipment is guaranteed to be reliable. This is because proof of calibration means that an IFR 6000 is well maintained and regularly serviced. If an IFR 6000 is not calibrated, the reliability of the equipment and its measurements minimizes


An IFR 6000 is used to measure crucial navigation and communication components needed when an aircraft is in flight; therefore, if an IFR 6000 does not properly measure these components, pilots and others associated with the aircraft could be at risk of danger. An uncalibrated IFR 6000 can also put users at risk of electrical shock


Unnecessary costs are likely to be accrued if an IFR 6000 is not calibrated. This is because the chance of damage due to non-calibration is high. Costs would include repairs to any equipment or item damaged, medical costs of any individual affected by an uncalibrated IFR 6000 and costs to replace an instrument if it suffers trauma due to non-calibration.

E2b calibration is an ISO 17028 accredited calibration that specialized in IFR 6000 calibration. For more information on IFR 6000 calibration, please contact us.

IFR 6000’s aren’t the only equipment needing maintenance.
