HMB, Marlborough, MA, offers the TEDSdongle that lets you automatically configure transducers and sensors for measurement tasks without needing an additional amplifier. The dongle, when used with TEDS-compatible sensors, reduces time and cost of test system setup or test configuration by allowing you to read and write TEDS information to the memory chip; TEDS data are stored according to IEEE 1451.4. Transducer data can be archived to a PC and used as a template for new sensors. Software is included. The TEDSdongle connects via a USB port to a Windows PC.
