Field testing laboratory K05 Mechanical quantities

Brake pressure sensor. Manometer

Range
Uncertainty (CMC)
Range
0.1 - 16 bar
Uncertainty (CMC)
±0,06 bar

Remarks/ref. to internal procedure: Calibrated against ID309. The object is calibrated against a digital pressure transducer. This is used by applying pressure step by step and comparing the reference to the test object

Brake tester - Electronic transducer

Range
Uncertainty (CMC)
Range
1,0 - 40,0 kN
Uncertainty (CMC)
± 0,019 kN ved 1,0kN og ± 0,47 ved 40,0 kN

Remarks/ref. to internal procedure: Calibrated against ID307. The object is calibrated against a reference load cell. It will be gradually applied force and then read towards the object.

Brake tester - Dead weight

Range
Uncertainty (CMC)
Range
1,0 - 40,0 kN
Uncertainty (CMC)
± 0,015 kN ved 1,0 kN og ± 0,37 kN ved 40,0 kN

Remarks/ref. to internal procedure: Calibrated against ID307. The object is calibrated against the reference weight and arm. Loads will be applied step by step and then read against the object.
Field testing laboratory K07 Fluid quantities

Diesel smoke meter - K-value

Range
Uncertainty (CMC)
Range
0,35 - 3,74 m-1
Uncertainty (CMC)
± 0,06 m-1

Remarks/ref. to internal procedure: Calibrated against ID308. The object is calibrated with two or more reference filters. The reference is theoretically calculated using chamber length. Result and reference value are compared.

Diesel smoke meter - Opacity

Range
Uncertainty (CMC)
Range
12,0 - 80,0 %
Uncertainty (CMC)
± 0,8 %

Remarks/ref. to internal procedure: Calibrated against ID308. The object is calibrated with two or more reference filters. Result and reference value are compared.

Exhaust gases analyser - Carbon monoxide

Range
Uncertainty (CMC)
Range
0,4 - 5,5 Vol%
Uncertainty (CMC)
± 0,02 Vol% ved 0,50 Vol%
Range
Uncertainty (CMC)
± 0,12 Vol% ved 5,00 Vol%

Remarks/ref. to internal procedure: Calibrated against ID297. The object is calibrated against two different reference gases that are calibrated and traceable.

Exhaust gases analyser - Carbon monoxide

Range
Uncertainty (CMC)
Range
5 - 15 Vol %
Uncertainty (CMC)
± 0,12 Vol % ved 5.00 Vol%
Range
Uncertainty (CMC)
± 0,18 Vol % ved 14.00 Vol%

Remarks/ref. to internal procedure: Calibrated against ID297. The object is calibrated against two different reference gases that are calibrated and traceable.

Exhaust gases analyser - Hydrocarbons

Range
Uncertainty (CMC)
Range
80 -4100 Vol-ppm (propan)
Uncertainty (CMC)
± 14 Vol-ppm ved 100 Vol-ppm
Range
Uncertainty (CMC)
± 40 Vol-ppm ved 4000 Vol-ppm

Remarks/ref. to internal procedure: Calibrated against ID297. The object is calibrated against two different reference gases that are calibrated and traceable. The reference gas is Propane and is converted to Hexane by a PEF factor that is instrument dependent.
Field testing laboratory K08 Optical quantities

Headlamp beam tester

Range
Uncertainty (CMC)
Range
0 - 40 mm/m
Uncertainty (CMC)
± 1.5 mm/m

Remarks/ref. to internal procedure: Calibrated against ID311. The object is calibrated with a calibrated and traceable Laser and angle sensor. The laser light is centered in the light adjuster and measures the angle of incidence with the angle sensor. Level in the light adjuster must be present to define a zero point.
