Yokogawa releases advanced data recorder

Yokogawa Electric has released the DXadvanced R3 data acquisition and display station for networks.

The product is an enhanced version of the Daqstation series of paperless recorders designed for more efficient monitoring of production lines.

The DXadvanced has a built-in panel and offers integrated display, recording and communication functions.

Of the two models available, one has a 5.5in LCD panel with up to 12 input channels, while the other offers a 10.4in LCD panel with up to 48 input channels.

With the new display customising function, various screens such as trend display and bar charts can be placed to suit the user’s requirements.

Displaying the data on virtual plant diagrams makes it easier to grasp the data.

With the multi-batch function, data is acquired independently from each process, and data acquisition can be started and stopped on each channel.

This allows users to acquire data independently for each process on a single DXadvanced by allocating the channels to the particular processes to be managed.

The products are designed for an open system environment, and conform to the Profibus-DP1 and Ethernet/IP2 standards for industrial communication protocols.

This facilitates the development of multi-vendor systems using these protocols as a common interface when connecting to devices such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs) or temperature controllers.

Major target markets for these recorders are production sites in industries such as electric power, petrochemical, chemical, iron and steel, pulp and paper, food, pharmaceutical, plus water and wastewater, as well as OEMs and equipment manufacturers.

Applications include the recording and monitoring of parameters such as temperature, pressure, flow or chemical composition in manufacturing processes.
