Lays down detailed specifications for the instrumentation and procedure to be used for primary calibration of accelerometers using centrifuge calibration. Applies to rectilinear accelerometers with zero-frequency response, mainly of the strain gauge or piezoresistive type, and to primary standard and working pick-ups. Is applicable for a calibration range from 10 m/s^2 to 1000 m/s^2 (higher accelerations possible) at 0 Hz. The limits of uncertainty applicable are ± 1 % of reading.
