The comparison of a pressure sensor output against the output of a reference standard. ESI recommend a calibration interval of 12 months, however it is the user of the calibration item that has sole responsibility for defining the exact calibration interval to best suit the application requirements.
A graphical representation of the calibration record.
Process in which small bubbles are formed and implode violently. This can cause aggressive damage in pipework and fittings
A die (un-packaged semiconductor device) cut from a silicon wafer, incorporating semiconductor circuit elements such as resistors, diodes, transistors, and/or capacitors.
The maximum and minimum limits of signal that the product will output under normal operating conditions.
The voltage between each of the output terminals of a differential output product and electrical ground.
The temperature range over which the product will produce an output proportional to pressure within the specified performance limits.
The signal conditioning used to provide a calibrated product whose output closely matches the Ideal Transfer Function. Deviation from the Ideal Transfer Function results in errors which are described by the Total Error Band. Circuitry or materials designed to counteract known sources of error are added.
The change in a sensors output occurring with time after removal of a load which had been applied for a specific period.
The change in no-load output occurring with time after removal of a load which had been applied for a specific period.
