chain guard


Explanation:
Without further context, it is hard to say if your sentence refers to a fixed element, i.e. measuring chain guard or if (test) personnel should implement a device or measure to guard the measuring chain from inadverent contact.
Usually Abdeckung can be rendered as:
guard, shroud, cover, enclosure

Good luck!

coverage of the measurement chain


Explanation:
It seems highly likely to me that the abstract sense of "Kette" is meant here. So far everyone has been taking it literally.

A "Messkette" is a measurement chain, e.g. a sequence of sensors, transmission lines, data acquisition devices, etc.
So I think "Kette" means "chain" or "sequence" here.
The meaning in your context is that testing should cover the full extent of the measurement chain or sequence.
