Another Sample Aneroid Calibration (1984 Chelsea)
This is the calibration that was being measured at the time the test chamber photo was taken (Figure 4.8-3).
Notice that its raw reading is correct within ±1.0 mb from 965 to 1050, and that can be improved to better than half of that with the use of this calibration. We have measured several Chelsea units with similar results showing this shape to the calibration curve.
