Ensure Minimal Measurement Uncertainty- What You Need to Know about Setting up Reference Measurement Chains for the Calibration of Mechanical Quantities

Date and Time

 Wednesday 02 September 2020      10:00 AM CET       English

The scope of the webinar is the measurement of the quantities force, torque, pressure and acceleration. According to a recent survey of Frost & Sullivan, the calibration of mechanical quantities is a promising growth field for the foreseeable future.

A reference measurement chain consists of a reference transducer and a precision amplifier. In order to reach a certain measurement uncertainty (MU) for the whole measurement chain, the right components do not only have to be implemented, they must also be calibrated regularly.

The webinar provides a general introduction to reference transducers and precision amplifiers including recommendations on measurement uncertainty.

Learn more about:

  • Choosing the right elements for force, torque, pressure and vibration;
  • The choice of high precision amplifiers, emphasizing DMP41, the world ‘s most accurate amplifier for strain-gauge based measurements;
  • How to set up a high precision measuring chain, and how to find out about its measurement uncertainty?
  • Setting up calibration systems?
  • Frequent problems and possible solutions to them.
