Standard Practices for Verification of Displacement Measuring Systems and Devices Used in Material Testing Machines
|Publication Date:||1 February 2005|
These practices cover procedures and requirements for the calibration and verification of displacement measuring systems by means of standard calibration devices for static and quasi-static testing machines. This practice is not intended to be complete purchase specifications for testing machines or displacement measuring systems. Displacement measuring systems are not intended to be used for the determination of strain. See Practice E83.
These procedures apply to the verification of the displacement
measuring systems associated with the testing machine, such as a
scale, dial, marked or unmarked recorder chart, digital display,
etc. In all cases the buyer/owner/user must designate
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
Displacement values indicated on displays/printouts of testing machine data systems-be they instantaneous, delayed, stored, or retransmitted-which are within the Classification criteria listed in Table 1, comply with Practices E2309/ E2309M.
