Force Calibration

DGI Metrology can also provide dynamic force calibration, specifically Impulse hammers such as PCB model 086D20 and dynamic force sensors such as PCB 280C02 sometimes called impedance heads. Included are accelerometer/impedance head combinations. The impulse hammer and the dynamic force impedance both operate on the F=M*A principle. Using a calibrated mass and calibrated accelerometer the force can be determined.

Force calibration

Along side a dynamic force sensor and impulse hammer are several other commonly used devices

Our impulse hammer calibration capability ranges from miniature to 12 lb. sledge hammer type.
