Terms differ between calibration of conventional and digital equipment. Traditionally in benchmarking, the word calibration means that the instrument being tested is compared to a more accurate instrument and may include trimming or adjusting the equipment to indicate correct re-reading. In fieldbus terms, the word calibration means to configure or verify a tool. The main reason for calibration is that even the best instruments lose the ability to perform accurate measurements, which necessitates calibration . Environmental conditions, elapsed time and type of application can affect the stability of an equipment. You can find that one unit has good stability, while the other has different performance.
The difference between conventional and fieldbus transmitters
Conventional (analog) or analog transmitters
- One-way analog signal
- Just a variable
- One pair of cables to each device
- Convert mA signal to digital for I / O subsystem
- Two-way digital signal
- A lot of information is transmitted
- Multiple drop multi-tool cables
- No standard I / O system required
- Open standard – the tools of each manufacturer can be in the same bass field
The main difference between a Fieldbus transmitter and a conventional transmitter is that the output signal of a Fieldbus signal is completely digital. Changing the output signal does not change the need for periodic calibration.
Method for calibration of field bass transmitters
The Emerson AMS Trex Communicator is a combination of a multi-purpose process calibration and a field bass regulator that can be used with both industry standards: Foundation Field-bus H1 and Profi-bus PA. The center also has HART adjustment and calibration settings.
Beamex MC5 Fieldbus Calibrator can be used.
- 2 people are needed for calibration
- Make connections
- Auto-Calibration & Documentation – Simulate or generate input and read digital output of Field-bus tools
- Correct (adjust) if necessary and perform left calibration automatically or manually.
- Upload the calibration results to the calibration software and print the calibration certificate.
Benefits of using the AMS Trex Emerson Communicator
- Versatile calibration + bass field communication
- A single instrument that is moved to the field
- Easy to use and reduces usage time for calibration
- Automatic documentation of results
- Improve trends and profitability
