This post includes the recordings of the two-part webinar series titled “How to avoid the most common mistakes in field calibration” we recently did together with our partner ISA (International Society of Automation).
We are sometimes asked if it is better to calibrate process instruments in the field, or in a calibration workshop. It is obviously impossible for us to give a correct generic answer for that question. The right answer for each application depends on various things. In this post I have listed a few common arguments for both field calibration and workshop calibration.
A HART transmitter is the most common smart transmitter type used in the process industry. What should be taken into account when calibrating and trimming a HART transmitter? Let’s take a look at the most important things to take into consideration. And also, let’s set straight the most common misconceptions regarding HART communicators.
We quite often receive questions regarding the calibration of a square rooting pressure transmitter. Most often the concern is that the calibration fails too easily at the zero point. There is a reason for that, so let’s find out what that is.
