RMA Form


All new PCTEL scanning receivers and transmitters are factory calibrated. PCTEL recommends regular recalibration to maintain accuracy.

Please check the calibration sticker on your equipment for the recommended recalibration date. HBflex™, IBflex®, and MXflex®  scanning receivers should be calibrated every two (2) years. Other scanning receivers and transmitters should be re-calibrated annually.

Services Offered for Scanning Receivers and Transmitters

  • Calibration—PCTEL evaluates the performance of the equipment against key performance parameters and restores it to original equipment specifications. Every unit that passes the rigorous calibration test receives a Certificate of Calibration.

Services Offered for Scanning Receivers Only

  • Extended Calibration Report—PCTEL provides detailed performance data generated during the calibration process that is not included in the standard Certificate of Calibration. Extended Calibration Reports can be ordered at the time the unit is being calibrated.

Calibrations are warranted for the equipment’s normal calibration cycle. Calibration services do not extend the scanning receiver’s applicable warranty.

Repairs and Hardware Upgrades

All repairs (in or out of warranty) and hardware upgrades include a warranty on the scanning receiver. For details, see Warranty Information.
