The article explains the difference between communication, calibration and HART devices. Well, communication means making a connection between a device and a control system to send data, and calibration means checking a device’s ability to measure against a set of technical standards.

Also, you need to compare the calibration range of your device with the standards. If your measurements are out of the standards, then you probably need either zero or span adjustments. Overall, as for communication and calibration, for HART devices and people – both important!

For this, just check out SMT70 in our shop. This is a tablet PC designed as a complete solution that comes with pre-installed driver libraries. It is an easy-to-use, touch-enabled tool, which can be used to manage field instruments during their entire life cycle.
