Dear Sir:

    I am considering purchasing an Agilent cal kit.    


The part number is:  1250-3607

The link to the part is:  

http://www.home.agilent.com/myagilent/faces/partDetail.jspx?partNumber=1250-3607&imageStatus=NO&_afrLoop=1095674597382975&_afrWindowMode=0&_afrWindowId=1ctk13czwi_28#%40%3F_afrWindowId%3D1ctk13czwi_28%26_afrLoop%3D1095674597382975%26imageStatus%3DNO%26partNumber%3D1250-3607%26_afrWindowMode%3D0%26_adf.ctrl-state%3D1ctk13czwi_40

   The problem is:    I can't find the usual data that comes along with a cal kit (such as offset delay, offset loss, etc. etc.).

    I am aware that there may be a new marketing strategy which exists to sell cal kits which does not make the cal kit data readily available to the user.

    I do not agree with policy because if one is conducting research, one has to be able verify by inspection one's measurements (calibrators) without any third party intervention.  

   If a part is defective, or damaged, or if a technician has incorrectly specified the cal kit, then systematic measurement errors may arise for those user's who do not have access to verification kits.   
 
     Can you please output the typical cal kit data for this cal kit, so that I may at least have a "rough" idea of the quality of my measurements?

     Thank you.
