An Introduction to the problems solved by the 2,000 lbf Morehouse Portable Calibrating Machine (PCM) and the Mechanical Tensiometer Calibrator
Several organizations perform low capacity force measurements by using some homemade test frame or by stacking weights onto the test instrument to be calibrated. The weights create ergonomic issues that are slow and dangerous for the technician performing the calibration. In almost all low force applications we have observed measurement errors from off-center loading on hand-held force gauges, misalignment errors of 1 % or more on load cells, vibration and potential cable breaking on cable tensiometers. This webinar will help anyone making low force measurements identify the error sources and offer solutions to correct those measurement errors.
Calibrator provides safety, convenience, and fast turnaround for your force calibration laboratory by its all-around safety shield, fine calibration force control, and versatility in calibrating a large variety of instruments.
Quick-change tension adapters, quick-adjust calibration height, and quick setup will save your valuable time in the field; while the calibrator provides precision force measurements
