Actually the non-linearity or deviation from a straight line in a plot of output amplitude vs. input amplitude of a sensor or system. At Dytran, we use the popular zero based best straight line method of determining linearity. Full scale is determined, a zero based best straight line plot of output vs. input is made, an error band is created using a specified percent of full scale. All points on the curve must fall within this error band.
