50 IQ points. Shouting does not help, by the way.

When you see an ordinary person on the street, how does it differ with a smart guy?

I mean, what do you usually see, when you categorize a person as "smart"? or not?

Application. Same as the difference between CAPITAL LETTERS and lower case. Do stop SHOUTING; it wakes people up that are still sleeping.

The smart transmitter is smart while the other transmitter just transmits.

It is the same difference as a deciding what is a question and what is a smart question.

Any chance you can transmit more content with your follow up question?

CR4 is well known to give smart comments to common questions. Beware there might be a difference to transmitters .

Awaiting your soonest reply!

Why didn't you just input this into Google or some other search engine?:

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TRANSMITTER & A SMART TRANSMITTER?

If you did, you would get this:

Just look at all those hits!

In this age of information, it's better to input your query to a search engine. That will direct you to a specific answer and save time.

Welcome to CR4. Stick around and learn how better to frame questions. Don't be lazy. The more detail you supply, the better the answer will be.

If you stick around, I expect much more detail - why you are asking the question, and what you expect to learn.

Again, don't be lazy.

The smart transmitter includes additional "features" which makes the output less reliable and more expensive to obtain.

Welcome, vinod joshi,

When dealing with a device to measure a process variable such as temperature, or many others, a transmitter will only give you an analog signal that is somehow scaled to be within limits of its manufacture and installation. As such, it may be made to give a 4-20 mA signal with 4mA at 0-degC and 20ma at 200 degC, or any other process variable, signal type, and output range specified by the manufacturer.

A smart transmitter has many more capabilities, such as being able to be programmed via buttons for a specified output type and specified range in the process variable. Many smart transmitters are much more complex, with digital outputs instead of analog, the ability to be connected in a distributed network, the ability to be remotely setup, etc.
