scope:

1.1 This practice covers the procedures for calibration of linear displacement sensors and their corresponding power supply, signal conditioner, and data acquisition systems (linear displacement sensor systems) for use in measuring micromotion. It covers any sensor used to measure displacement that gives an electrical voltage output that is linearly proportional to displacement. This includes, but is not limited to, linear variable differential transformers (LVDTs) and differential variable reluctance transducers (DVRTs).

1.2 This calibration procedure is used to determine the relationship between output of the linear displacement sensor system and displacement. This relationship is used to convert readings from the linear displacement sensor system into engineering units.

1.3 This calibration procedure is also used to determine the error of the linear displacement sensor system over the range of its use.

1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
