The DSPZR was designed to act as a nexus for industrial data collection and management. The unit offers multiple protocol conversion, data logging and remote machine access. 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 protocols can be converted.
The DSPZR leverages over 250 communications drivers via three independent serial ports and an Ethernet port, to connect and collect data from virtually any PLC, drive, bar code scanner, etc.
The DSPZR's built-in data-logger will log tags at user-programmable rates, and automatically time/date stamp them. The information is stored in open CSV file format, allowing you to access them with virtually any application. The DSPZR can synchronize the log files with any FTP server and/or Microsoft's SQL Server for further analysis.
The CompactFlash card allows data to be collected and stored for later review. The files are stored in simple CSV file format allowing common applications, such as Microsoft Excel and Access, to view and manage the data. The CompactFlash card may also be used to load new configuration files into the DSPZR
The DSPZR extends production monitoring to remote personnel by providing email and text alerts, and its built-in webserver allows information to be monitored via any networked PC or smart-phone. If enabled, remote personnel can take partial or full control of the system remotely, allowing a maintenance person to effect changes without a site visit.
The USB port may be used for blazing fast file downloads, or to mount the DSPZR's CompactFlash card as an external drive to your PC. The DSPZR's DIN rail mounting saves time and panel space and snaps easily onto standard top hat (T) profile DIN rail.
