Courtesy: Yokogawa Corp.Equipped with a new touch screen operator interface, the Yokogawa DXAdvanced Touch is a new model series of the highly capable DXAdvanced R4 data acquisition and display stations. The pressure-sensitive touch screen gives users a faster and more efficient way to navigate the display screens and normal operating modes of the unit, and it does so with no degradation of the display quality and clarity that all DX models are known for, according to Yokogawa.

An operator can quickly and easily enter batch and message text information on a full-screen touch keyboard, and readily access trend history data with the calendar search functions. For biotech, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage industries, the advanced security option delivers full compliance with FDA regulation 21 CFR Part 11, enabling all models to be used in any FDA program area that must comply with the regulation. 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.

Custom display screen support and an alarm annunciator display mode using ISA sequencing are also included, making the DXAdvanced Touch an intelligent annunciator system with data display and recording functions. 

Two model ranges are offered, DX1000T with 2-12 universal inputs and  5.5-in. color display, and the larger DX2000T with 4-48 universal inputs and 10.4-in. color display.

Open network connectivity is a hallmark feature. DXAdvanced Touch can interface with PLCs and other control products as a data source or to add graphical data display and recording functions. Modbus RTU and TCP, EtherNet/IP, and Profibus DP protocols allow installation on control networks. Up to 300 optional external I/O inputs can be brought into the DX2000T to build a large recording system.
