Vibration Calibration of Accelerometers

  • Calibrations at frequencies from as low as 0.1 Hz to greater than 20 kHz
  • Sensitivity and phase
  • Calibration service currently available from the NIST Storefront
    • Measurement service 24110C for calibration of sensitivity at frequencies from 10 Hz – 20 kHz
    • From frequencies below 10 Hz or greater than 20 kHz, or requiring phase information at any frequencies, via special test 24130S
