Evaluation and correction of systematic effects in a simultaneous 3-axis vibration calibration system
AbstractThis paper presents a calibration method, recently realized at INRIM, suitable for the calibration of 3-axis accelerometers in frequency domain. The procedure, allows to simultaneously evaluate the main and transverse sensitivities on three axes by means of a single-axis vibration excitation of inclined planes. Nevertheless, the excitation system is subjected to spurious motions mainly due to the vibrational modes of the inclined planes and to the horizontal motions of the shaker. In order to provide the proper sensitivities to the 3-axis sensors, the evaluation of systematic effects is experimentally carried out and the related correction is proposed.
