The DXAdvanced R4 is latest version of the Daqstation data-acquisition and display stations with high-capacity memory and an option for stringent pharmaceutical applications. An Advanced Security option delivers full compliance with FDA regulation 21 CFR Part 11. This is complimented by a multibatch option that allows channels to be grouped and recorded to discrete batch records with independent start and stop control.

Standard features include 400 Mbyte of internal Flash memory, with an optional USB interface. Custom graphics let users design custom display screens. An alarm-annunciator display mode uses ISA sequencing, which replaces common annunciator lamp panels.
Two models are offered — the DX1000 with two to 12 universal inputs, 5.5-in. color display; and the larger DX2000 with 4 to 48 universal inputs and 10.4-in. color display.

Modbus RTU and TCP, EtherNet/IP, and Profibus DP protocols aid installation on control networks, and the DXAdvanced R4 can interface with PLCs and other control products as a data source or to add graphical data display and recording functions. An external input option lets the DX2000 handle up to 300 additional inputs from external I/O for a total system capacity of 348 inputs.
