Basic trends in automating checking work

It is proposed to divide measuring instruments, from the point of view of automating their checking, into three basic groups, for each of which there is a typical technical solution. For each group there is also a characteristic degree of effectiveness due to the introduction of automation.

The greatest effectiveness can be expected from the automated checking of measuring instruments without scales, since the information from them can be applied directly to other instruments and there is no need for intermediate members such as readout and computing devices.

Complete automation of the checking of indicating instruments is desirable at the present time only for instruments of high accuracy classes (0.5 and higher), and when it is necessary to check 10 or more scale marks and to record the indications. As with SST, it is desirable first to introduce such automation in factories producing instruments.

For instruments of lower accuracy classes it is desirable to limit the automation of checking to the introduction of SST.
