The Data Station
Plus acts as a nexus for industrial data
collection and management. Now features such
as data logging, protocol conversion and
remote machine monitoring and control can
be added to any equipment. With three built-in
serial ports and a 10 Base-T/100 Base-TX
Ethernet port, the unit performs protocol
conversion, allowing disparate devices to
communicate seamlessly with one another.
The Ethernet port supports up to four
protocols simultaneously so even Ethernet
to Ethernet conversion may be performed.
The CompactFlash card allows data logging of
process data from any connected device.
The USB port may be used for
blazing fast file downloads, or to mount the
Data Station’s CompactFlash card as an
external drive to your PC. The Data Station’s
DIN rail mounting saves time and panel
space and snaps easily onto standard top hat
(T) profile DIN rail.
The DSPSX000 and DSPGT000 offers
several additional features beyond those
offered by the DSPLE000. The CompactFlash
card allows data to be collected and stored
for later review. The files are stored in
simple CSV file format allowing common
applications, such as Microsoft Excel and Access, to view and manage the data. The
free Websync utility provides a means to
synchronize the files with a PCs hard drive
for permanent storage.
The built-in Web server allows log files to be
retrieved manually, and also provides access to the unique "virtual HMI". The virtual HMI
is programmed just like Red Lion’s G3
Series of HMI. Any standard Web browser
such as Internet Explorer or Netscape may
be used to monitor or control the HMI from
a PC anywhere in the world.
