DAKKS-Calibration Laboratory for Torque Transducers
In order to achieve an optimal result during the calibration of torque sensors, special attention had to be given to the following parameters:
- For the computation of the lever arm length, the acceleration of gravity at the setting up place of the calibration unit was determined experimentally by a national authority with the tolerance of 2 × 10-6.
- The lever arm length was adjusted to 2 × 509.838 mm because the length takes direct influence to the generated torque.
- To avoid temperature fluctuations on the lever arm length, the lever arm was produced with special material with a very light thermal expansion coefficient.
- Also the bearing friction affects the produced torque, therefore an air bearing of the lever arm was employed.
- The uncertainty of measurement of the 100 mass discs should be as small as possible, so the masses were adjusted to class F1.
This system will be used as Reference Standard for our production.
The system is located in a complete airconditioned laboratory where temperature and air humidity are regulated according to the applicable norms.
Our existing Quality Assurance System according to DIN EN ISO 9001 has been extended by the norm DIN EN ISO/ IEC 17025, valid for calibration laboratories.

Calibration Laboratory of the Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle
The calibration laboratory is entitled, under the conditions in the following and under the consideration of the appropriate procedure guidelines and/or equipment standards, to issue calibration certificates for the measurand torque in the measuring range specified as follows:
|Measurand / Calibration Object
||Measuring Conditions According
||Best Measurement Capability
|The uncertainties of measurement specified in the table are the smallest uncertainties of measurement which may be indicated on calibration certificates. The determination of these uncertainties of measurement was based on an extension factor k = 2 (corresponds to a coverage probability of approximately 95 %).
