What Is Force Calibration?

Force calibration is a metrological process that involves quantifying the relationship between the force applied to a measurement device and the corresponding output signal or reading produced by that device.

In the International System of Units (SI), force is measured in newtons (N), where 1 newton is defined as the force required to accelerate a one-kilogram mass by one meter per second squared. Instruments used for force measurement, such as load cells or force transducers, convert mechanical deformation caused by an applied force into an electrical signal, which is then quantified and displayed as a force value.

Force calibration testing is essential to maintain the accuracy and reliability of force-measuring equipment, which is crucial for consistent and dependable results in various applications.
