Yokogawa Releases New DXAdvanced R3 Data Acquisition and Display Station for Networks
Yokogawa Electric Corporation will release the DXAdvanced R3 data acquisition and display station for networks, which is the enhanced version of the Daqstation series of paperless recorders. Release is scheduled for October 20.
A new customizing function for display and a recording function by facility or batch provide excellent operability and easy data management, for even more efficient monitoring of production lines.
In recent years, paperless recorders which can record measurement data on an electric device have been the mainstream as these recorders have been used to improve maintenance efficiency and the processing of stored data in the production site. In addition, there is a growing emphasis on monitoring operation data and saved history data in production facilities. For these reasons, an important criterion when purchasing a recorder is whether the necessary data can be easily viewed.
Factory automation devices are produced on a batch basis, and operation data is acquired and monitored on the same basis. When every process needs multiple devices, a recorder must be connected to each device and data acquired accordingly, even though multi-channel recorders are increasing. As a result, to manage data for the entire production line, data must be acquired from each recorder, which is laborious.
To improve the efficiency of monitoring production lines, Yokogawa has enhanced the functions of the DXAdvanced data acquisition and display station.
