Reading TEDS

Endevco’s new TEDS Reader is a portable engineering tool that enables users to quickly review the full contents of any embedded IEEE P1451.4 TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet) via a PDA.

Using a Dell Axim X3 PDA (Pocket PC) as its control/readout device, the system displays the contents of a TEDS memory chip located inside a transducer, including important information such as sensitivity, location and calibration coefficients.

The TEDS Reader shows the entire transducer data sheet in full detail, in contrast to similar devices that only read certain lines of a template.

Engineers can also use the PDA to write task-specific information to user fields in the TEDS Reader, as defined in the standard.

The system also includes an interface Cable with 10-32 transducer connector.

Endevco has a factory-direct sales force in the US and is represented in the rest of the world by Brüel & Kjær.
