Regular transducer calibration is an essential requirement for maintaining the accuracy, reliability and repeatability of the results obtained from a measurement system. m+p international’s m+p SensCal program provides a quick and simple process for calibrating accelerometers (piezo-electric with charge output or IEPE, piezo-resistive, capacitive) in your laboratory, as well as velocity or displacement transducers.
We offer the m+p SensCal program as an add-on to a wider m+p vibration test system for checking its transducers without any additional acquisition hardware; or it can be utilized as a standalone calibration system.
m+p SensCal uses a reference accelerometer and shaker system to measure the sensitivity of the sensor-under-test (SUT). The following calibration methods are supported:
A complete m+p SensCal system consists of:
Simply mount the SUT on your shaker and start the short calibration procedure. m+p SensCal is easy to operate within m+p VibControl. On-screen set-up enables you to select a stored profile which defines the frequency range and acceleration amplitude for the test.
At the conclusion of the test, comprehensive calibration data can be displayed including graphs showing the deviation of amplitude and phase response of the SUT from that of the reference accelerometer. m+p SensCal creates a detailed calibration certificate with company logo as PDF. It shows, among other things, the sensitivity and the transmissibility with phase information.
