## How do you calculate full scale accuracy?

Accuracy as a percentage of full scale is calculated by multiplying the accuracy percentage by the full scale pressure of the gauge. This is obviously a more simple method of specification and is most commonly used in industry because it is easy to calculate and interpret.

## What is full scale in uncertainty?

Full Scale is 30 PSI • Full Scale output is 20 mA • Uncertainty in mA at 30 PSI is 20 mA x 0.5% or ±0.1 mA If you want to do a comparison of two or more different devices, apply the math in the specifications to the same measurement value (for example 20 mA) made with the various instruments.

**What is percentage of full scale?**

“% of full scale (FS)” accuracy. For example, a 100 psi gauge with 0.1 % of FS accuracy would be accurate to ± 0.1 psi across its entire range. By convention, a gauge specified as 0.1% accuracy is implied to be 0.1% FS.

**What is full scale value?**

Since binary integer representation range is asymmetrical, full scale is defined using the maximum positive value that can be represented. For example, 16-bit PCM audio is centered on the value 0, and can contain values from −32,768 to +32,767. A signal is at full-scale if it reaches from −32,767 to +32,767.

### What is full scale capacity?

The maximum capacity of a load cell or extension of an extensometer.

### What is full scale range?

“Full scale” indicates the full scope of the measurement range. For example, full scale for a Sensor with a measurement range of ±10 mm is 20 mm.

**What is a full scale error?**

Full-scale error indicates the offset error (%FSR) between analog input when the maximum conversion value is reached and full-scale (FS) analog input (VREF) in an A/D converter. The full-scale error, zero-scale error, and non-linearity (linear) error constitute the overall error.

**Is accuracy a percentage?**

In the science of measuring things, “accuracy” refers to the difference between a measurement taken by a measuring tool and an actual value. The relative accuracy of a measurement can be expressed as a percentage; you might say that a thermometer is 98 percent accurate, or that it is accurate within 2 percent.

#### What is the full scale range?

“Full scale” indicates the full scope of the measurement range. For example, full scale for a Sensor with a measurement range of ±10 mm is 20 mm. Error with respect to ideal straight line of linear output.
