|ADVANCED DAQ STATION
The DXAdvanced R4 is the newest DAQstation data acquisition and display station. It offers standard high-capacity memory and an option for pharmaceutical applications. The Advanced Security option delivers full compliance with FDA regulation 21 CFR Part 11. Standard features include 400MB of internal flash memory and an optional USB interface for data retrieval.
|SECURE RECORDING AND PID CONTROL
The nanodac recorder/controller offers graphical recording combined with PID control. The compact ¼ DIN panel-mount unit offers four high-accuracy universal inputs. 50MB of flash memory for data storage and a USB port to attach a removable memory stick for at least 8GB of additional storage are included. The Ethernet connection also supports FTP for file transfer.
|MULTIFUNCTIONAL USB DAQ MODULE
USB-4704 DAQ module is a 48 kS/s, eight-channel, 14-bit, multi-functional module with analog I/O, digital I/O and counter functions. It comes packaged with Wave-scan, a data-logging tool that provides examples, such as Visual C++, Visual Basic, Visual C#, Visual Basic .NET, Borland C++ builder, Delphi and LabView for easy development. Its low price makes it an excellent tool for students.
|UPGRADE DAQ SYSTEMS
Acromag's new 4001-111 ribbon cable has a DB25 female connector for an 8B backpanel and a 26-pin female IDC connector for the data acquisition system, enabling users to replace a 3B or 5B module rack without a custom adapter. 8B isolated signal conditioning provides ±0.05% accuracy, ±0.02% linearity, 3-pole to 5-pole filtering and 1500-Vrms isolation.
The eZtrend QXe and QX Minitrend paperless recorders provide the ability to capture continuous and batch data electronically. AMS2750 process recording and report generation provide documentation to show compliance to process specifications and validation requirements. Also, concurrent batch recording allows users to record up to six different batches.
|GET EMAIL FROM YOUR SYSTEM
XCGSM, GSM cellular modem expansion card for the Data Station Plus and Modular Controller series enables cellular connectivity for a wide range of remote and mobile data management applications. It delivers real-time production data via cell phone and email, integrated IT-ready data logging of system performance, and events and port-sharing for PLC control and programming.

|COMBINED DATA LOGGING & CONTROL
Smart SoftPLC can combine comprehensive data logging, I/O control, alarm notification and more. It provides unlimited capacity to gather and record data to removable media or to stream data to a remote drive over a network. Data files can be sent as an email attachment. A built-in Ethernet switch with fiber option, five serial ports, and built-in modem or sixth port option are standard.
|MODBUS RTU & I/O IN ONE
The microNCS Modbus RTU master and distributed I/O system provides Modbus RTU (RS-485) master capabilities and distributed DAQ and control capabilities. It gathers data from four or eight fully-isolated analog inputs and four discrete inputs, and transmits it to one or more host DCS-, PLC- or PC-based control systems. A data logger archives up to 64000 time- and date-stamped values.
|ENERGY MONITORING AND DAQ
OptoEMU System is a packaged, web-capable energy monitoring and DAQ system that enables real-time acquisition power consumption data from facilities and equipment in real time. Power draw of individual loads from buildings, machinery and other equipment can be identified and shared over standard networks, so it can be used to develop energy management strategies.
|DATA LOGGING SOFTWARE
AutomationDirect and BizWareDirect DataWorx offer data collection software for the Productivity3000 programmable controller. The DataWorx for P3K data logger software package connects Ethernet-enabled Productivity3000 PACs to standalone PCs or network servers for easy data logging. The report-by-exception operation eases network traffic by sending information only when needed.
|EXPANSION POWER FOR DAQ
Sealevel's SeaI/O DAQ modules provide digital, analog and serial expansion to any computer. Connect to the host via wireless, Ethernet, USB, RS-485 or RS-232. Daisy-chain units using pass-through connectors to create a distributed control and monitoring network. Multiple modules can be combined in a stack or separated up to 4000 feet with the RS-485 Modbus RTU expansion interface.
System 9000TS sequence-of-events recorder offers 1-ms resolution of events and works as a standalone or functions as a full alarm and event management system by using the optional integrated alarm annunciator features. It has standard 3U 19-in. racks with rear access terminals. It is fully programmable and equipped with serial communication ports.
