  Tech Tip
Q: What does a gauge accuracy statement really mean?
(Examples: 1% of span, 3-2-3 percent of span)
A:

Accuracy is the difference between the true value and the gauge indication expressed as a percent of the gauge span.  It is determined by comparing a gauge indication to a known standard or certified true value and combines the effects of method, observer, apparatus, and environment. Accuracy error also includes hysteresis and repeatability errors. An ASME B40.1 class B gauge has three accuracies. For example, a 3-2-3 percent of span designation stands for 3% in the first quarter of the scale, 2% in the middle half of the scale and 3% in the upper quarter of the scale.
