Abstract
(EN)



The invention relates to a method for providing measured values for end users.
The measured value of a process variable is detected by means of a sensor and
is transmitted to a process management system. The number of transmission
operations is counted and the costs incurred to the end user are calculated
according to the number of transmission operations. The main advantage of the
invention lies in the fact that the end user no longer pays for the sensor,
only being charged for that which he/she really requires, i.e. the measured
value.
