New strain gauge-based torque reference chain offering smallest measurement uncertainties
Hottinger Baldwin Messtechnik GmbH (HBM), Darmstadt, Germany
New measurement approaches for mechanical quantities based on strain gauge technology offer one feature above all else: the possibility to realize smallest measurement uncertainties. This is particularly important for metrological infrastructure, i.e. realization of metrological traceability chain to support applications in aerospace or in automotive industry. Achievements toward smaller measurement uncertainties are shown by realization of a novel torque reference sensor TN with improved usability for inter-laboratory comparisons in combination with a surprisingly compact precision amplifier called Quantum MX238B.
