Eccentric load

1. Deviation in the measurement value caused by eccentric loading, i.e. asymmetrical placement of center of gravity of the load relative to the load receptor. The eccentric load magnifies with increasing load and distance from the center of the load receptor.
2. Specification: Magnitude of eccentricity deviation for the specified test load and prescribed position, usually expressed as a limit value in mass units.
