  • Publication number: 20200125974
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a method for determining at least one process variable of a medium, including steps of recording a sensor signal from a field device and determining a selected model from a set of at least two different models by means of a classifier. Each of the models is used for determining the process variable based at least on the sensor signal. The classifier is designed to select the selected model. The method also includes a step of determining the process variable based at least on the selected model and the sensor signal.

  • Patent number: 10277282
    Abstract: An antenna for short-range applications, including an elongate two-pole conductor structure with an internal conductor and a sheath conductor coaxially surrounding the internal conductor, and a terminal structure connected to the conductor structure. The terminal structure includes an electrically insulating carrier plate, an electrically conductive sheath conductor connection surface that extends over a first region of the carrier plate on the upper side of the carrier plate and is connected to the sheath conductor, an electrically conductive internal conductor connection surface that extends over a second region of the carrier plate, which is spaced apart from the first region of the carrier plate, on the upper side of the carrier plate and is connected to the internal conductor, an electrically conductive coupling conductor surface that extends over a third region of the carrier plate on the underside of the carrier plate. The antenna provides reliable transmission of information over short distances.
