|Publication Date:||1 July 2012|
|ICS Code (Measuring instruments):||17.040.30|
This practice describes three function tests that together can be used to verify that a vertical inclinometer probe is working properly.
This practice does not address calibration routines, electronic diagnostics, or repair of the probe, nor does it address inspection of the probe's mechanical parts.
This practice is not intended to replace manufacturers' recommendations for servicing and calibration of inclinometer equipment, nor is it intended to replace maintenance and calibration schedules established by users as part of their quality programs.
