The HART Communications Protocol (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer Protocol) is used to communicate diagnostic information to and from field instruments, actuators and valves over legacy 4 mA to 20 mA analog loop-wiring to industrial controllers. In this way, extra industrial wiring, which is expensive, does not have to be resourced and maintained.
Heading is the direction toward which an object in motion is pointing.
A process by which two signals are mixed for the purpose of cross-frequency translation. Integral Nonlinearity (INL) This term describes the absolute accuracy of a converter. It is the maximum deviation, at any point in the transfer function, of the converter's output from its ideal value.
The amount of time required for the digital inputs to remain static after a rising clock edge.
