Investigation of the influence of transducer electronic data sheets (TEDS) on calibration results
The international standard IEEE 1451.4 is the basis for transducer electronic data sheets (TEDS), where information related to the transducer like serial number or nominal sensitivity is stored into a chip inside the transducer. For bridge type sensors, with a novel circuit (patent pending) it is possible to read the TEDS information for 6-wire bridge sensors without additional wires by using the sense lines.

Guidelines for the determination of calibration intervals
Strictly seen: A calibration is only valid at the time of implementation. In practice, the question more frequently posed is how often should a recalibration actually be carried out. In general, the operator is responsible for the determination of calibration intervals.
