Reliability, Integrity and Safety are not just key facets of all Scope products, but also play an essential role in the workplace and the way in which we design and manufacture our systems. The company's documented quality system (to ISO 9002) is just a starting point for the many complex operations which result in the delivery of professionally engineered, reliable products to our diverse range of customers.

Principal operations undertaken at Scope's manufacturing facility include printed circuit board assembly, wave soldering, hand soldering, automated lead cropping, optical inspection, UHF radio alignment, electro-mechanical assembly, ATE function testing and high voltage safety testing. Controlled ESD protection measures are utilized throughout the assembly process.

All products have their key parameters aligned and tested at sub-assembly stage.
  The finished systems are then re-checked and 100% function tested prior to despatch. Test equipment from leading manufacturers, including Marconi, Hewlett Packard and Anritsu, is used extensively throughout the Production dept., and all test equipment is calibrated and traceable to UK national standards. All mains powered products are subjected to end of line electrical safety testing in accordance with EN60950 and the Low Voltage Directive 73/23/EEC.

The controlled Stores department, with dedicated Goods Inward Inspection and ESD handling areas, ensures that components are checked for accuracy to specification prior to kitting and assembly. All product documentation is mastered within the QA department and a dedicated MRP system and database is used to control Bills of Materials and job record storage.

  Scope's benchmark multi-port paging transcoder, Connexions 3, also carries the prestigious UL listing (USA model). The factory is audited by UL four times a year.
