Enter the accuracy percentage and the full scale pressure of the gauge into the calculator to determine the full scale accuracy.

## Full Scale Accuracy Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Full Scale Accuracy.

FSA = (A%/100) * FSP

• Where FSA is the full scale accuracy
• A% is the percentage accuracy
• FSP is the full scale pressure.

To calculate a full scale accuracy, multiply the percentage accuracy by the full scale pressure.

## What is a Full Scale Accuracy?

Definition:

A full scale accuracy is a type of accuracy that is dependent on the reading of a gauge. For example, for a flow rate device, the accuracy would be measured as a percentage of the maximum flow rate.

## How to Calculate Full Scale Accuracy?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Full Scale Accuracy.

First, determine the accuracy percentage. For this example, the accuracy percentage is 2%.

Next, determine the full scale pressure. In this example, the full scale pressure is 500 N/m^2.

Finally, calculate the full scale accuracy using the formula above:

FSA = (A%/100) * FSP

FSA = (2/100) * 500

FSA = 10 N/m^2
