As measurement converters are in accordance with DIN 1319 such measuring equipment ( meter , measuring device , normally called, ...), which convert their input into an output signal with a different structure; In this case, measurement signals can have an analog or digital signal structure, possibly also differently digitally coded structures. For the delimitation and explanation of analog and digital signals, see under digital measurement technology .

Measurement converters are therefore divided into

The converters deliver their information as

  • visible display or
  • electrical signal, but also one
  • internal storage is possible.

There are a number of competing interfaces for the electrical signal if the information is to be directly integrated in a facility of automation technology , such as B .:

Measuring converters often offer galvanic separation of the measured and output variables.

For measuring equipment that only works with analog signals, see under transmitter .
