EXPLANATIONS OF TERMS
ACCURACY
This transmitter’s accuracy is theoretically defined as the addition of A/D and D/A conversion errors:

  Accuracy = A/D Conversion Error + D/A Conversion Error

The A/D conversion error means that measured as HART signal which is A/D converted from the analog input signal.
The D/A conversion error of this transmitter is relatively very small so that it does not really affect the unit’s overall performance.
The “Accuracies” given in Table 1 therefore equals the A/D conversion error.
The temperature drift (coefficient) or the cold junction compensation error is not included in the “Accuracy.”
CALCULATION EXAMPLES OF OVERALL ACCURACY IN %
DC Voltage
1) 0 – 200 mV
Absolute value accuracy (Table 1): 40 μV
40 μV ÷ 200000 μV × 100 = 0.02 % < 0.1 %
➠ Overall accuracy = ±0.1% of span
2) 0 – 4 mV
Absolute value accuracy (Table 1): 10 μV
10 μV ÷ 4000 μV × 100 = 0.25 % > 0.1%
➠ Overall accuracy = ±0.25 % of span
Thermocouple
1) K thermocouple, 0 – 1000°C
Absolute value accuracy (Table 1): 0.25°C
0.1% × 1000°C = 1°C > 0.25°C
CJC error (0.5°C) added: 1 + 0.5 = 1.5°C
1.5°C ÷ 1000°C × 100 = 0.15 %
➠ Overall accuracy including CJC error = ±0.15 % of span
2) K thermocouple, 50 – 150°C
Absolute value accuracy (Table 1): 0.25°C
0.1 % × (150 – 50)°C = 0.1°C < 0.25°C
CJC error (0.5°C) added: 0.25 + 0.5 = 0.75°C
0.75°C ÷ (150 – 50)°C × 100 = 0.75 %
➠ Overall accuracy including CJC error = ±0.75 % of span
RTD
1) Pt 100, -200 – 800°C
Absolute value accuracy (Table 1): 0.15°C
0.15°C ÷ (800 – -200)°C × 100 = 0.015 % < 0.1 %
➠ Overall accuracy = ±0.1 % of span
2) Pt 100, 0 – 100°C
Absolute value accuracy (Table 1): 0.15°C
0.15°C ÷ 100°C × 100 = 0.15 % > 0.1 %
➠ Overall accuracy = ±0.15 % of span
