Title
(DE) VERFAHREN ZUR BEREITSTELLUNG VON MESSWERTEN FÜR ENDKUNDEN
(EN) METHOD FOR PROVIDING MEASURED VALUES FOR END USERS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ POUR METTRE A DISPOSITION DES VALEURS DE MESURE DESTINÉES A DES UTILISATEURS FINAUX
Abstract
(DE)
Bei einem Verfahren zum Bereitstellen von Meßwerten für Endkunden. 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)
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.

(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé pour mettre à disposition des valeurs de mesure destinées à des utilisateurs finaux. Ce procédé consiste à utiliser un détecteur pour détecter une valeur de mesure d'une variable de processus, qui est ensuite transmise à un système de gestion de processus. Il consiste également à comptabiliser les opérations de transmission et à calculer les coûts pour les utilisateurs finaux en fonction du nombre d'opérations de transmission. Le principal avantage de l'invention réside dans le fait que les frais relatifs au détecteur ne sont plus à la charge de l'utilisateur final, ce dernier supportant uniquement les frais liés à ses besoins réels, à savoir l'obtention de la valeur de mesure.
