Measuring instruments – indispensable in many technical areas

Measuring instruments are used to determine quantities of interest. The medium to be measured is detected by a special sensor and evaluated within the measuring device or by a separate electronic receiver. The measured value is then displayed either analogously or digitally in the form of a quantity perceptible to the human sensory organs (usually the eye).

The elementary characteristics of measuring instruments

The elementary characteristics of measuring instruments include their static and dynamic behavior as well as the accuracy of the measurement performed. While the static behavior describes the correlation between the measured quantity and its reproduction by the measuring instrument (linear or curved), the dynamic behavior provides information about the time in which a measuring instrument still provides a reliable display after the measured value has been recorded. Finally, the measurement accuracy provides information about the expected and tolerated deviations between the measurement result and the actual condition.

High-quality measuring instruments are convincing

In order to achieve a correct measurement result under all environmental conditions and in every situation, when selecting the required measuring instruments you should only pay attention to convincing quality and compliance with all specified technical standards. With products such as the Rixotact_4 differential pressure gauge or the RW65, Rixen offers you reliable measuring instruments for a wide range of applications.
