Due to the absence of standardized definitions, calibration is often misinterpreted with other term configuration.
According to industry standards, configuration refers to the adjustment of the transmission, and measurement capabilities of a smart transmitter. In short, it indicates setting the parameters of the transmitter to meet various process requirements.
Calibration is an entirely different procedure. It compares the device against a traceable reference, and comparisons are documented to determine the drift. Although the process requires no major adjustments, still potential adjustments are made, while calibrating the transmitter.
