Abstract: An effort to simplify the IEEE 1451 standards family extension for adding smart, plug-and-play and self-adaptation capabilities to frequency output sensors is describe in the paper. It was shown that due to the use of one universal component - the universal frequency-to-digital converter (UFDC-1), any frequency output sensor can be transformed into a smart transducer compatible to the IEEE 1451 standard. This gives strong benefits to both: customer and manufacturers, increases the level of commercial adoption of the standard in industry and smart sensors market up to 20 %.
Keywords: IEEE 1451 standard, frequency output sensors, smart transducers, TEDS, universal frequency-to-digital converter, UFDC-1
