According to the EC Directive 90/384/EC, scales must be officially verified if, for example, they are used as follows:
- Business transactions, when the price of a good is determined by weighing.
- Manufacturing of pharmaceuticals in pharmacies and for analyses in medical and pharmaceutical laboratories.
- For official purposes.
- In the manufacturing of prepackaged goods.
Outside the EC, country-specific regulations apply to mandatory verification.
Electrical circuit with several elements for the precise measurement of an electrical quantity, e.g. resistance.
Abbr. for 'Measuring Instruments Directive'.
Scale with a weighing range divided into partial ranges. Each of these has a different scale interval. Depending on the applied load, the scale switches up and down to the corresponding measuring range with the corresponding resolution and division.
With multiple-range scales, each individual range is treated as a single range scale. Switching between the weight ranges is only possible with increasing load. Switching to a range with lower resolution by taring is not possible with a multiple-range scale.
