Bilateral Comparison of Accelerometer Calibration

Project Description

MIKES has been building a vibration transducer calibration facility on a secondary level. Now, when the calibration facility is ready to be used, MIKES is motivated to carry out a bilateral comparison to validate it.

The task is to compare measurements of sinusoidal linear accelerations and piezoelectric accelerometer calibration in the frequency range from 10 Hz to 10 kHz. Two accelerometers, one provided by each laboratory, will be used during the comparison. The calibration is accomplished by primary method according to ISO 16063-11 or by secondary method according to ISO 16063-21. The result of the calibration is the magnitude and phase shift of the complex charge sensitivity.

The results of comparison will be used as an evidence for MIKES CMCs for secondary calibration of vibration transducers.
MIKES will act as a pilot in the comparison.
