DescriptionThe 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.
