Measurement accuracy

Accuracy of the reported field measurement when a standard probe is used to measure a magnetic field at instrument calibration temperature ±5 °C. Dictated by uncertainty values for Hall probe calibration stations. Does not include TruZero residual offset for the teslameter that will also be present, but may be significantly smaller than the probe measurement accuracy.
