This NORDTEST method describes the calibration of torque measuring instruments of both mechanical and electrical types.

Methods are included for the determination of

  • linearity
  • hysteresis
  • repeatability
  • uncertainty

The method covers calibrations in the range approx. 10-500 Nm. Only static torques are considered. 

This method does not cover the calibration of torque wrenches.
