Transfer Transducers are delivered with DKD certificate.
April 28, 2005 - TOP transfer transducers are used for checking calibration equipment with repeatability that exceeds ISO 376 force calibration standard requirements. Models TOP-Z30 and TOP-Z4A cover range of nominal (rated) forces from 100 N to 500 kN. Both can be used for compressive and tensile loading, and force application parts are available for either model. During calibration tests, it is important that transducers are connected to high-precision amplifier.

Latest Transfer Transducer Increases Precision Checks
HBMâ€™s latest TOP transfer transducers give improved accuracy for checking calibration equipment with a repeatability of up to ten times better than required by the ISO 376 force calibration standard.
National metrology institutes use transfer transducers to compare the precision of different force calibration machines ensuring complete accuracy during routine checks. During tests at the German Metrology Institute, measurements of the TOP transfer transducers showed that they were accurate to within 0.002% over a year.
There are two versions of the latest transfer transducer series, the TOP-Z30 and TOP-Z4A, covering the range of nominal (rated) forces from 100 N to 500 kN. Both models in the series can be used for compressive and tensile loading, and force application parts are available for either model.
The transducers are delivered with a German Calibration Institute (DKD) certificate.
During calibration tests, it is important that the TOP transfer transducer is connected to a high precision amplifier. HBM recommends the use of its DMP40 precision amplifier to give an accuracy of 0.0005% and a resolution of 2 million digits.
