What is a TEDS?
A Transducer Electronic Data Sheet is known as a TEDS. It is a set of electronic data in a standardized format stored in a chip that is attached to a transducer, therefore allowing the transducer to identify and describe itself to the network, thereby easing automatic system configuration. This self-identification capability for the transducer is needed for maintenance, diagnostics, and to determine mean-time between failure characteristics. The chip stores information such as manufacturer name, identification number, type of device, serial number, as well as calibration data. The TEDS can be uploaded to the system upon power up or request. It also serves as documentation for the transducer.
What is the breakdown of the TEDS structure
The TEDS structure is broken down into 5 parts: Meta-TEDS, Channel TEDS, Calibration TEDS, Application Specific TEDS and Extension TEDS. Each one of these structures serves its own purpose:
