Evaluation of Load Cells for Legal Metrology at NIST

Published

Author(s)

Kevin L. Chesnutwood

Abstract

Load cells for use in legal metrology issues are evaluated in accordance with the National Type Evaluation Program (NTEP) and the International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML). An overview of the role played by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the testing of these load cells will examine testing parameters, procedures, and analysis of results. The major challenges and difficulties that manufacturers face in meeting these guidelines and achieving agreement with NIST test results will be examined. Additionally, NIST?s participation in an intercomparison with other laboratories will be discussed.
