Bilateral supplementary comparison on calibration of accelerometers

Project Description

The specific task of this bilateral comparison is the measurement of the magnitude of the sensitivity of one single-ended accelerometer in the medium frequency range (10 Hz to 10 kHz). The sensitivity shall be calculated as the ratio of the amplitude of the output of the accelerometer to the amplitude of the acceleration at its reference surface with secondary means in accordance with ISO 16063-21:2003 "Methods for the calibration of vibration and shock transducers - Part 21: Vibration calibration by comparison to a reference transducer".
