Abstract. The IEEE TEDS 1451 specification is an attempt to provide an industry standard Transducer Electronic Data Sheet which contains the necessary sensor gain factor in a memory location that can be automatically read by the instrument whenever a new sensor is attached. This paper addresses some of the difficulties and the solutions proffered by various companies in using IEEE TEDS for the calibration of the sensor with the instrument.
