Title Transmitters for use in industrial-process control systems - Part 1: Methods for performance evaluation
Project Number 11784
Abstract/Scope Applicable to transmitters which have either a standard analogue electric current output signal or a standard pneumatic output signal in accordance with HD 452.1 or EN 60382. The tests detailed herein may be applied to transmitters which have other output signals, provided that due allowance is made for such differences. Specifies uniform methods of test for the evaluation of the performance of transmitters with pneumatic or electric output signals. Methods of evaluation are intended for use by manufacturers to determine the performance of their products and by users or independent testing establishments to verify manufacturers' performance specifications.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
