Universal Calibrating Machine - a versatile compression and tension machine used for the calibration of load cells, force gauges, crane scales and other force measuring instruments for the purpose of calibrating or characterizing the devices for use as secondary standards, working standards, or to make field measurements.
If a load cell is to be used to make descending measurements, it must be calibrated with a descending range
This post will examine the effects of calibrating the load cell in compression by switching to tension and then back to compression, versus calibrating in tension first and then compression. We will determine if there is a statistical difference in output from transitioning back and forth between compression and tension on newer load cells.
Molecule Excitement Decline might explain why the use of a low range calibration on a reference standard can lead to additional error. This post will explain what molecule excitement decline is, and what should be done to minimize the error associated with using a load cell at a high and low range.
Error associated with installing a non flat base on a multi-column cell. Below is actual test result we observed on a Revere multi-column cell.
