Paper Abstract

The paper describes implementation of smart sensors (SS) at the distributed measurement systems. To the main advantages of smart sensors bleong: -- compact form with common supply and standard output signals, with good functionality at hard conditions, -- minimization and compensation of the disturb influence to measuring transducers and to the output signal (temperature influence, static characteristic non-linearity, transfer disturbing), -- local signal processing with duplex communication, function testing and data validation. Some results will be present with design, structure and properties of small displacement smart sensors with two types of optical fiber transducers. These sensors are interconnected with controllers by ILAN or WLAN with PC computers and SCADA/MMI program support that enable to reach very good functional parameters with higher flexibility, reliability, testing and maintenance.
