Accuracy

Stated as a limit tolerance that defines the average deviation between actual output and theoretical output. In practical load cell applications, the potential errors of nonlinearity, hysteresis, non-repeatability and temperature effects do not normally occur simultaneously, nor are they necessarily cumulative. Therefore, accuracy is calculated based upon the RMS (root mean square) value of potential errors, assuming a defined temperature range, full rated load applied, and proper setup and calibration. Potential errors in other components of the measuring system are not included.
