Data Station Plus, Multiple Protocol Converter

Nov. 21, 2007
The Data Station Plus was designed to provide all of the features of the G3 series HMIs, without a display and Provides Enhanced Features for Data Acquisition or Multi-zone PID Control Applications. Features such as data logging, protocol conversion and remote machine monitoring and control can be added to any equipment. The Data Station Plus acts as a nexus for industrial data collection and management. 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. Some of the many benefits include: Storing Module Configuration Information and Automatically Reprograms Replaced Modules, Supports up to 16 Modular Controller Series Modules, CompactFlash® Slot Allows Process Data to be Logged Directly to CSV Files (SX & GT), Performs Hierarchical Control of Other Modules in the Modular Controller Series
