EndressHauser (Switzerland) - With its extensive communications capabilities, the Memograph M is ideally suited for IIoT applications and use as an edge device.
Endress+Hauser releases the Memograph M RSG45 Advanced Data Manager DIN rail version, an intelligent remote device with extensive communication capabilities, making it ideal for IIoT applications and use as an edge device for getting data to cloud-based servers.
It is able to acquire data from up to 20 HART or universal analog input channels and 14 digital inputs, has two analog outputs and up to 12 relay outputs, and makes its data available to IIoT systems and all major automation system architctures via multiple communication interfaces and protocols. Interfaces and protocols include 4-20mA HART, Modbus RTU/Modbus TCP/IP, PROFIBUS DP, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, Ethernet TCP/IP, USB, RS-232C/RS485 and OPC.
With all these interfaces, the Memograph M easily communicates with new and existing PLCs, SCADA systems, distributed control systems, historians and cloud-based data structures. It also has an embedded web server that can be accessed by any web browser via the internet once proper security procedures are followed.
The Memograph M mounts on a standard DIN rail, is powered by standard 24Vdc or 230Vac power supplies, and has IP20 protection. All connections on the front of the device are designed as pluggable screw or spring terminal blocks, with reverse polarity protection in either case, making connections quick and easy. The spring terminals are unlocked with a slotted screwdriver.
It provides tamper-proof data recording on 256MB of internal memory compliant with various legal directives, a 32GB SD card and a 32GB USB drive. Built-in software includes FDM Field Data Manager for visualization, analyzing, backup and reporting; audit trail software consistent with FDA21 CFR part 11; and Itherm TrustSens temperature sensor calibration. Application packages include mathematics, Telealarm, batch management, wastewater + RSB (rain spillway basin) and energy calculations.
The Memograph M can generate e-mail or SMS messages to alert users of alarm conditions or process events. Messages can be sent to several recipients simultaneously or automatically forwarded to a recipient/destination. Messages can be confirmed, relays controlled remotely and current values queried by any web browser.
