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 instrument or by a separate electronic receiver. The measured value is then displayed either in analogue or digital form as a quantity that can be perceived by human sensory organs (usually the eye).
The elementary characteristics of measuring instruments
The fundamental characteristics of measuring instruments include their static and dynamic behaviour and the accuracy of the measurement made. While static behaviour describes the correlation between the measured quantity and its reproduction by the measuring instrument (linear or curved), dynamic behaviour 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 on the expected and tolerated deviations between the measurement result and the actual condition.
High-quality measuring instruments are convincing
In order to obtain 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 MU-Digital97 differential pressure gauge or the MU-Analg65, Rixen offers you reliable measuring instruments for a wide range of applications
