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 item's 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.
