Methods of Accurate Dynamic Mass Measurement?

  1. Oct 24, 2012 #1
    Hi all,

    As part of a project I am working on, I need a method of dynamically measuring change in mass (preferably at least 1 measurement per second). The maximum expected load is 10kg, and the measurement needs to be accurate to at least ±0.1g. So far, all that has been suggested to me is the use of load cells, but from what I have seen online, the best accuracy obtainable is more or less 0.02% of maximum capacity (±2g for a cell with a 10kg maximum capacity).

    I am not looking for a solution, only hoping that people can suggest more options for me to investigate further. Precision measurement is an area in which I have no experience, any comments would help.

    Thanks, Chris66
