A smart transducer is a device that comprises in a compact small unit a sensor or actuator element (possibly both), a micro-controller, a communication controller and the associated software for signal conditioning, calibration, diagnostics, and communication. This paper describes a universal smart transducer interface that supports the provision of a standardized set of services to a user in order to operate, configure and diagnose the transducer device. The encapsulation of the internal complexity of the smart-transducer hardware and software and the internal transducer failure modes behind such a generic interface reduces the complexity at the system level.
