NO MORE 'ON-SITE' CALIBRATION WITH NEW
RDP 'PLUG & PLAY' SYSTEM.
RDP Electronics Ltd, already prominent amongst leading
European transducer manufacturers in the development and
introduction of 'plug and play' technology, has announced the
launch of a new 'self-calibrating' transducer and indicator system.
Based on the IEEE 1451.4 standard, RDP's TEDS enabled transducers
connected to an RDP E725-DCt signal conditioning display unit now offer
the possibility of on-site set up without the need for physical calibration.
Previous research has shown that up to 23% of the cost of a measurement
application can be attributed to the set up and calibration time. According
to RDP, 'on site calibration is a thing of the past it's now as easy as
connecting a mouse to a computer. Plant control and automation systems
or test facilities can save huge amounts of down time by availing themselves
of this new technology. Should a transducer fail, then a replacement TEDS
version can just be plugged in and you are up and running again in minutes.'
Central to the system is an embedded memory chip holding technical data
specific to its host transducer. Information is held as a Transducer Electronic
Data Sheet TEDS for short defining the sensor type and specification
details including sensitivity, that is read automatically and acted upon by
the compatible instrumentation such as the RDP E725-DCt.
RDP has developed a range of TEDS enabled transducers to measure or
control displacement/position, load/force, pressure, torque and acceleration.
