Specific Force-Measuring Instrument(s)

Specific Force-Measuring Instrument(s) Introduction At Morehouse, we have covered various sections of the ASTM E74 standard over numerous articles, papers, and posts. We have not covered specific force-measuring instruments for all of those various pieces. Yet, we frequently perform many calibrations and have sold equipment designed specifically for this criteria. Even though many customers have […]

Morehouse PCMs in Healthcare: Precision You Can Trust. Patient Outcomes You Can Measure.

Portable Calibrating Machines (PCMs) in Healthcare Imagine a scenario crucial to patient care: a muscle strength test conducted with a hand-held dynamometer. The outcome dictates treatment plans, diagnoses, and recovery milestones. The precision of this device must be balanced; inaccuracies can lead to misdiagnoses, compliance issues, and wasted resources, compromising patient safety and institutional integrity. […]

Load Cell Reliability and Force Measurement in Healthcare

The Importance of Load Cell Reliability in Healthcare In the healthcare sector, precision isn't just a requirement—it's a necessity where the margins for error are perilously thin, and the consequences of inaccuracy can be grave. At the heart of this precision lies the unassuming yet critical load cell, a device whose reliability is foundational to […]

My ASTM E74 Change From Previous is Too High: What Could Have Caused This?

ASTM E74 Change From Previous ASTM E74 Change From Previous to meet a two-year calibration interval is found in the ASTM E74 standard in section 11.2.1. The standard specifically states, “Force-measuring instruments shall demonstrate changes in the calibration values over the range of use during the recalibration interval of less than 0.032 % of reading […]

Force Proficiency Rental Kits to Satisfy Your ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Force ILC Requirement

Force Proficiency Rental Kits Available.  Don’t jeopardize the integrity of your measurements by not validating them via ILC. At Morehouse, we understand the importance of complying with ISO/IEC 17025:2017, particularly Section 7.7.2, which mandates laboratories to demonstrate their competency through a Proficiency Testing (PT) or Interlaboratory Comparison (ILC) plan at least every four years. ISO/IEC […]

Converting mV/V Load Cell Signals to Engineering Units:  Understanding Load Cell Sensitivity and Signal Conversion

Converting mV/V Load Cell Signals to Engineering Units:  Understanding Load Cell Sensitivity and Signal Conversion. Load cells, integral in measuring force, operate based on strain gauge technology. These devices provide millivolts per volt (mV/V) output, proportional to the excitation voltage. This mV/V sensitivity is crucial, as it determines the load cell's response to force. When […]

Load Cell Adapter Thread Depth Comparison – Budget Versus Shear Web 0.8 " Engagement Versus Locked into Place

Load Cell Error- Load Cell Adapter Thread Depth Comparison Budget Versus Shear Web       Load Cell Adapter Thread Depth Comparison - Introduction We have written previous articles about using shear web load cells with a threaded adapter installed, meaning they are locked into place. One article described the increased performance by locking a […]

Shackle Load Pin

Shackle Load Pin Morehouse is well known in the industry for calibrating loadcells of all types to the highest accuracy. And for 50 years, we have scratched our heads at the poor performance of load pins compared to all other types of loadcells. Even the slightest change in loading conditions causes drastic changes in load […]

Treatment of Zero in Determining Deflections – ASTM Method B Interpolated Zero Reduction Methods

Treatment of Zero in Determining Deflections – ASTM Method B Interpolated Zero Reduction Methods In calibration, many disciplines take multiple calibration points between the initial zero and the ending zero. What is the standard method for reducing the zero readings from the raw data recorded? When we started asking some contacts at National Metrology Institutes […]
