Sensotec has launched its Identity Technology plug, play & calibrate systems for its sensors and
signal conditioning. The system is compliant to the soon to be published IEEE 1451.4 standard
for connectivity of sensors and associated signal conditioning.
The transducer electronic
data sheet (T.E.D.S) containing sensor specifications, calibration data
and user defined location information is stored in the sensor. When connected to the SC2000 or
any IEEE1451.4 compliant signal conditioning the sensor is interrogated for the TEDS
information and automatically sets up and calibrates the signal conditioning with the sensor.
IEEE1451.4 compliant sensors and systems are set to revolutionize the test and measurement
market. Users will never have to search for sensor calibration data sheets nor worry about the
identity of blind cable and connectors. The data will be right there stored in the sensor and
automatically recognized when the signal conditioning is powered up.
