Yokogawa DXAdvanced R4 is a highly capable and fully integrated data acquisition and display station with network connectivity. It incorporates universal input measurement; color data display modes, and secure on-board data logging into a compact system.

 

A wide range of process monitoring applications across many industries are supported. For the stringent requirements of the pharmaceutical industry, for example, the new advanced security option delivers full compliance with U.S. FDA regulation 21CFR Part 11, which allows all models to be used in any FDA program. This is complimented by a multi-batch option that allows channels to be grouped and recorded to discrete batch records with independent start and stop control. High capacity 400 MB internal flash memory is now standard, and the optional USB interface adds convenient data retrieval via USB memory and configuration with a USB keyboard.

 

With custom graphics, users can build display screens unique for their application. An alarm annunciator display using ISA sequencing is also included, allowing the DXAdvanced R4 to replace common lamp panel systems. Historical data review is much easier thanks to a calendar display and search tool, and enhanced trend history functions.

 

Open connectivity with control networks is supported with Modbus RTU and TCP, EtherNet/IP and Profibus DP protocols. DXAdvanced R4 can interface with PLCs and other control products as a data source or to add display and recording functions. An external input option can up to 300 additional inputs from external I/O, such as Yokogawa’s MW100 data acquisition system, for 348 inputs total.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 Salary Survey

In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.

Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
