  • Growing Trends in Data Logging Capabilities

    Recently the market has seen an increased interest in smaller models of battery-powered data loggers featuring wireless communications interfaces. These convenient systems rely on proprietary wireless protocols to provide the best mix of range and battery life, often lasting a full year or more. Data can be sent to a handheld receiver, PC or a network-connected collector.

    Another rising trend is the market's move toward building more functionality and intelligence into network-connected data loggers. The newest models of dataloggers offer built-in Ethernet interfaces for easy integration into the network along with FTP and web servers for enhanced communication.

    This white paper discusses how advanced, new dataloggers are increasing communications options.

  • 10 Things to Know Before Purchasing a Data Logger for Remote Monitoring

    Remote monitoring applications in fields such as oil and natural gas extraction, environmental monitoring and fleet management often require close attention to detail. Users need to accurately record and track several variables including temperature, flow, strain, stress, vibration,and more. Therefore, when purchasing a new data logging solution, it's crucial to understand the exact capabilities and specifications of the device you need. However, the sheer variety of data loggers and data logging systems can often make it difficult to choose the best model for your application.

    In this white paper, applications specialists at CAS DataLoggers present 10 things which customers purchasing for remote applications need to know to choose the right data logger for their project.

  • IT-Friendly Gateway for Optimizing Profibus/Profinet Automation Networks

    As connections between plant floor automation equipment and enterprise-level business systems become the norm for the manufacturing industry (AutomationWorld, 2013), combining the expertise of automation engineers with that of IT engineers is the key to achieving an information-driven plant that can respond quickly to production errors, and thus minimize adverse impact on the business (Intel, The Factory of Tomorrow Will Be Smart). In this white peper, Moxa shows how gateways can integrate fieldbus devices with PROFINET, the most popular Ethernet-based protocol, as well as leverage IT knowledge to optimize the performance of this connectivity.

  • FDT2 Specification Provides Enhanced Security and Improved Performance

    FDT Technology is an international technical standard developed to standardize the communication and configuration interface between smart field devices and their host systems by providing a common environment for access to the features of the smart devices. With over 5,500 devices supported by certified FDT DTM's and installations worldwide, FDT is recognized by standards organizations such as IEC 62453, ISA103, CENELEC and soon China GB/T. The new FDT2 standard is built on Microsoft .NET technology and incorporates a host of new features – several at the request of users. Enhancements to the standard have been done while maintaining full backward compatibility with previous versions, allowing end-users to make their own decision regarding the pace of migration to FDT2.

    FDT2 standard includes many enhancements in several areas including security and improved performance. Learn how FDT2 provides users of both process and factory automation systems access to intelligent device and network information in a single, robust and field-proven environment.
