The DXAdvanced R4 is the newest and most capable version ofthe DAQSTATION data acquisition and display stations. Standard high capacitymemory and a new option for stringent pharmaceutical applications are newfeatures on the DXAdvanced R4.


The Advanced Security option delivers full compliance with

FDA regulation 21 CFR Part 11, enabling all DXAdvanced R4 models to be used in

any FDA program area that must comply with the regulation. 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.

Standard features include 400 MB of internal flash memory,

with an optional USB interface for data retrieval using USB memory devices or

configuration with a USB keyboard. All models include custom graphics that

allow users to design custom display screens unique for their application. An

alarm annunciator display mode using ISA sequencing is also included - the

DXAdvanced R4 performs as an intelligent annunciator system with data display

and recording functions - replacing common annunciator lamp panels. The

calendar display and search tool, and enhanced trend history functions simplify

historical data reviews.

Two model ranges are offered: DX1000 with 2-12 universal

inputs and a 5.5-inch color display; and the larger DX2000 with 4-48 universal

inputs and a 10.4-inch color display. Open network connectivity includes 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 graphical data

display and recording functions. An external input option allows the DX2000 to

handle up to 300 additional inputs from external I/O such as Yokogawa's MW100

data acquisition system, for a total system capacity of 348 inputs.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
