Title
(DE) Verfahren zum Bereitstellen von Messwerten und zur Berechnung der Kosten der Bereitstellung
(EN) Method for providing measuring values and method for calculation of the costs for providing these values
(FR) Procédé pour fournir des valeurs de mesure et procédé pour la détermination des frais pour fournir ces valeurs
Abstract
(DE)
Der Meßwert einer Prozeßvariablen wird mit Hilfe eines Sensors erfaßt und an ein Prozeßleitsystem übertragen. Die Anzahl der Übertragungsvorgänge wird gezählt und die Kosten für den Endkunden in Abhängigkeit der Anzahl der Übertragungsvorgänge berechnet. Der wesentliche Vorteil der Erfindung besteht darin, daß der Endkunde nicht mehr für den Sensor selbst zahlt, sondern nur für das, was er wirklich benötigt, den Meßwert.

(EN)
Method for provision of measurement values for end customers in which the value of a process variable is measured using a sensor (S1, S2, S3), the value is transferred to a process control system (PLS), the number of transfer processes is counted and the customer is billed on the basis of the number of transfers of the measurement value.
