What is calibration ?

The process of adjusting an instrument or compiling a deviation chart so that its reading can be correlated to the actual value being measured.

What is accuracy ?

The closeness of an indication or reading of a measurement device to the actual value of the quantity being measured.Usually expressed as ± percent of full scale.

What is error ?

The difference between the value indicated by the transducer and the true value of the measurand being sensed. Usually expressed in percent of full scale output.

What is repeatability ?

he ability of a transducer to reproduce output readings when the same measurand value is applied to it consecutively, under the same conditions, and in the same direction. Repeatability is expressed as the maximum difference between output readings.

What is range?

Those values over which a transducer is intended to measure, specified by its upper and lower limits.

What is span?

The difference between the upper and lower limits of a range expressed in the same units as the range.

What is Rangeability?

The ratio of the maximum flow rate to the minimum flow rate of a meter.
