ISO 376 certificate : Accuracy class “00”

The purpose of ISO 376 is to calibrate force-measuring instruments used for the static verification of uniaxial testing machines (e.g. tension/compression testing machines). It describes a procedure for classifying these instruments. These high-precision, so-called "transfer" standard transducers make the link between national metrology and testing machines that must be (re)-calibrated.

The class of the instrument must be equal to or better than the class for which the machine is to be calibrated according to ISO 7500-1. With this option, these high-accuracy-transducers not only allow the calibration of scale machines in class 05, 1 or 2 but also enable intercomparison tests between national standards.
