Data acquisition and control
Jun 13, 2012
Data acquisition and controlThe MAQ®20 Industrial Data Acquisition and Control System from Dataforth Corporation is a high-performance, flexible system developed for a wide range of applications, including factory and process automation, machine automation, military and aerospace, power and energy, oil and gas, and environmental monitoring. The initial MAQ®20 system offering is a family of DIN rail mounted, programmable, multi-channel, industrially rugged signal conditioning input and output modules and communication modules. Modules mount on the industry standard 35x7.5mm gull-wing DIN rail; a backbone mounts within the rail to provide power and communication interconnections between the communication modules and each I/O module. Each I/O module has a 1500Vrms isolation barrier between the field-side and system-side wiring, while some models offer per-channel isolation. All field wiring terminals are heavily protected against overload and accidental connection of incorrect signals, as well as ESD. Just three steps are required to create data acquisition and control projects, and toolbox tools are easily moved, re-sized, cut, copied, pasted, and deleted. Processors within each module make this a powerful distributed system.
