The Top 5 Pros and Cons of TEDS for Load Cells

Introduction of TEDS for Load Cells: Transducer Electronics Datasheet, or TEDS for load cells, is something we are frequently asked about as, over the years, the topic has been of interest to many hoping to use a load cell with a chip in it and be able to hook it up to multiple meters, to […]

Load Cell Shunt Calibration Made Easy

Load Cell Shunt Calibration Load Cell Bridge with a Shunt Calibration. Load cell shunt calibration is a cost-effective means to confirm that the load cell and indicator system are not experiencing significant drift or potential damage. Load cell shunt calibration involves introducing a known electrical resistance (shunt resistor) in parallel with the load cell, allowing […]

6 Exciting Things Everyone Should Know About NIST Traceable Force Measurements

6 Things Everyone Should Know About NIST Traceable Force Measurements   Many organizations with people in them still use outdated terminology. Such terminology uses the term NIST traceable force measurements or requests that calibration be NIST traceable. In measurement standards, the term "traceability" often invokes thoughts of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), […]

8 Steps on How to Foster a Positive Uncertainty Budget for a Morehouse Calibrated Machine

How to Develop an Uncertainty Budget for a Morehouse Calibrated Machine Uncertainty budgets are an essential part of any measurement. They help ensure calibrations are metrologically traceable, accurate, and reliable. Uncertainty budgets are also important for meeting regulatory requirements and accreditation. This article provides insight into developing an uncertainty budget for a Morehouse-calibrated machine. We […]

Easy Guide on How to Calibrate Cable Tensiometers

How to Calibrate Cable Tensiometers. Does the Type of Cable GAC versus SSAC Make a Difference? What is a Cable Tensiometer? Cable tensiometers are devices used to measure the tension or force in cables, wires, and ropes. They are commonly employed in engineering, construction, and industrial applications to ensure the proper tension of cables to […]

Lower Limit Factor: Improve Calibration Accuracy for Load Cells and Other Force Measurement Equipment

Lower Limit Factor: Improve Calibration Accuracy for Load Cells and Other Force Measurement Equipment LLF, or Lower Limit Factor, is a statistical estimate of the error in forces computed from the calibration equation of a force-measuring instrument when the instrument is calibrated following ASTM E74 standard practice for calibration and verification for force-measuring instruments. The […]

Let's Talk about Bias: The Force Measurement Error Kind!

Let's Talk about Bias: The Force Measurement Error Kind! What can happen when we use an accuracy specification and assume all the measurements are centered in relation to the specification limits? It is a typical problem in the metrology community, where many papers assume a centered process or Measurement. When the Measurement deviates from the […]

Tension Link Calibration (3 Easy Steps to Yield Repeatable Results)

Tension Link Calibration (3 Easy Steps to Yield Repeatable Results) Tension Link Calibration requires advanced knowledge of the calibration process to pass an instrument. There will be additional errors if there is any variation in the adapters used for calibration. Here at Morehouse, we have done testing using different pin sizes and adapters. Forged pins, […]

How Do I Calculate B Coefficients Using Data from My Force Calibration Report?

How Do I Calculate B Coefficients Using Data from My Force Calibration Report? At Morehouse, we generate calibration reports with both A and B coefficients. Any calibration performed following the ASTM E74 or ISO 376 standard will list both sets of coefficients. The A coefficients are used to solve for Response when the Force is […]
