Workpackage 1 - Development of calibration methods

First workpackage deals with calibration procedures and uncertainty evaluation for calibration of the automatic weighing instruments.

The calibration documents for the automatic catchweighers, automatic instruments for weighing road vehicles in motion and automatic gravimetric filling instruments were submitted to EURAMET TC-M for further approval. The documents can be downloaded from the following links:

  • Automatic catchweighing instrument (PDF, 638 kB)
  • Automatic instruments for weighing road vehicles in motion (PDF, 496 kB)
  • Automatic gravimetric filling instruments (PDF, 451 kB)

These drafts contains guidance for the calibration of the automatic weighing instruments, in particular for

  1. Determination of the mass of test loads
  2. Measurements to be performed
  3. Calculation of the measuring results
  4. Evaluation of the uncertainty of measurement
  5. Content of the calibration certificate

Comments, suggestions and questions related to the drafts could be sent to JRP coordinator (see Contacts).
