Jack Smith, Senior Editor,

Find out how you can save hours of set-up and callibration time by using TEDS technology. The Webcast will help plant engineers gain first-hand knowledge of:

  • The types of sensors or transducers that can employ TEDS

  • The setup, configuration, and calibration benefits

  • Accuracy

  • Drawbacks

  • Asset management and traceability

  • The future of TEDS and IEEE 1451

    • Plant engineers will also come away with a keen understanding of the IEEE 1451 standards that address smart sensor systems.

      Panelists include:

      Bill Schuh
      Scientist and Evaluation Engineering Manager
      Bill has been involved with research, development, and testing of sensors for the last 13 years.
      Ryan Wynn
      DAQ Systems Product Manager
      National Instruments

      Ryan Wynn is a recognized expert in sensor-based measurements and data acquisition. He has several years of experience ranging from software consulting to outbound marketing strategy to new product launches. He has been an active member of several technical societies, including the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, where he served as a corporate liaison for two years. Wynn has written technical articles for numerous professional publications, including Machine Design, Evaluation Engineering, and IEN. Finally, as a product manager at National Instruments, he has directed and executed on successful product launches, including the first NI entry into the smart TEDS sensor market. Wynn holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering with a minor in mathematics from the University of Washington.

      Kang Lee
      Leader of Sensor Development and Application Group
      Manufacturing Engineering Laboratory at the
      National Institute of Standards and Techology (NIST)

      Kang has over thirty years of experience in the fields of electronic instrumentation design, sensor-based automation and manufacturing, sensor networking for distributed measurement and control, and smart and wireless sensor interfaces standards.

      Mr. Lee also serves as the Chair of the Technical Committee on Sensor Technology at the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society (I&MS).on and self-description of sensors and a set common interfaces for connecting sensors and actuators to instruments, systems, and networks by wired and wireless means. 

      Working with the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), Kang has set up collaboration between IEEE I&MS and OGC to establish an open standard web services infrastructure bridging IEEE 1451 and OGC’s Sensor Web Enablement for the discovery, access, and tasking of fixed and mobile sensors in sensor networks.

      Kang received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering from the Johns Hopkins University and Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Maryland.
