In metrology, a dynamic error is a difference between the true value of the quantity changing with time and the value indicated by the measurement system if no static error is assumed. This error may have an amplitude and usually a frequency related to the environmental influences and the parameters of the system itself.
In metrology, dynamic errors are caused by dynamic influences acting on the system such as vibration, roll, pitch, or linear acceleration; they are:
- Insertion error
- Rapidity error
- Error band
