Controllers with analogue signals for use in industrial-process control systems - Part 1: Methods of evaluating the performance
|Publication Date:||1 October 2010|
|ICS Code (Industrial process measurement and control):||25.040.40|
This International Standard applies to
It should be noted that while the tests specified herein cover controllers having such signals, they can be applied in principle to controllers having different but continuous signals. It should be also noted that this standard has been written for pneumatic and electric industrial-process controllers with only analogue components and is not necessarily to be used for controllers with microprocessors.
This standard is intended to specify uniform methods of test for evaluating the performance of industrial-process PID controllers with analogue input and output signals 1).
The test conditions specified in this standard, for example the range of ambient temperatures, power supply, etc., are used when no other values are agreed upon by the manufacturer and the user.
When a full evaluation in accordance with this standard is not required, those tests which are required shall be performed and the results reported in accordance with those parts of the standard which are relevant. The testing program should be subject to an agreement between manufacturer and user, depending on the nature and the extent of the equipment under consideration.
