Subject: Understanding Accuracy (Uncertainty) Specifications
  This presentation will explain the various components that make up typical manufacturers accuracy statements and will include process instruments, field calibrators, transfer standards and reference standards. Actual specifications from currently available well known manufacturers will be used so that the information is “real world” and of real value.
Speaker: Ken Roberts  -   Cameron Instruments
  As President of Cameron Instruments, Ken has been involved in applications, sales and training of pressure measurement devices since 1990.   Over this time Ken has gained considerable experience with process instruments, portable field calibrators, transfer level standards, and reference level standards.  Ken has been a long time member of both ISA and NCSLI.  When not talking pressure and uncertainty Ken enjoys fly fishing, boating and flying his Cessna in no particular order.
