Data acquisition, display station
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.
