Calibrating the DFTS5000i Force Test System

A convenient and inexpensive methodĀ of calibrating the DFTS5000i inhouse is to use a seperate calibrated smart load cell. Linking the calibrated load cell to the unit under test via appropriate springs, enables the recording and comparison of the force measurements over the entire working range. The smart load cell can be treated like a gold standard and used for regular calibration checks, with traceability maintained by periodic returns to the manufacturer for recalibration without interrupting production testing.
