ISO 16063 comprises a series of documents dealing with methods for the calibration of vibration and shock transducers.
ISO 16063-17:2016 lays down detailed specifications for the instrumentation and procedure to be used for primary calibration of accelerometers using centrifuge calibration.
ISO 16063-17:2016 is applicable to rectilinear accelerometers with zero-frequency response, mainly of the strain gauge or piezoresistive type, and to primary standard and working transducers.
It is applicable for a calibration range from 10 m/s2 to 20 000 m/s2 (higher accelerations possible) at 0 Hz.
The limits of uncertainty applicable are Â±1 % of reading.
