RECORD & DATA  ACQUISITION

Secure data for regulated industries

 

 

Comprehensive security and data integrity make the versadac ideal for use in regulated industries, such as pharmaceutical or heat treatment, or for any application where loss of data during a manufacturing process would result in loss of revenue through scrap or rework. Data is recorded in tamper resistant binary check summed files (known as UHH) and stored in on board flash memory. Flexible archiving strategies ensure long term data is kept secure for later retrieval and analysis if required.

 

 

The versatility of this unit comes from a flexible range of base sizes and selection of input and output modules to best suit specific application needs. A wide range of software features are available including batch control, maths functions, totalisers, communications channels and audit trail. Electronic signatures and password control functionality which meets the requirements of FDA 21 CFR Part 11 is also available. Upgrade of both software and hardware can be easily carried out on site ensuring the versadac recorder can grow with your process needs.

 

 

The versadac recorder is easy to integrate into wider systems with Modbus Master/Slave or EtherNet/IP Client or Server communications options. The modular equipment can also be distributed throughout the plant in best position to reduce installation and cabling costs.

 

 

Set up of the recorder is via the easy to use iTools PC software. Configurations can be saved and re-used and pre-configured modules are available to reduce engineering costs. Once installed, the recorders can be viewed and managed securely from anywhere on the network, improving operational efficiency. Archived data can be automatically stored to designated FTP servers or to the secure Eurotherm Online Services (EOS) data cloud using EOS Director.

 

 

Recorders and Data Acquisition Units

 

 

Why use a Graphical or Chart Recorder for Data Management?

 

Where process data needs to be logged over an extended period of time a data recorder can be used, providing secure data storage and easy access to process records.

 

 

Collection of data can be required for compliance with some industry regulation, particularly in Heat Treatment (AMS2750) and Life Sciences (21 CFR).

Eurotherm Chessell produce a wide range of products to meet your data recording, archiving, and management needs.

 

Your data has value and we can give you peace of mind. Whether it is one of our paperless graphic recorders with the highest level of electronic file protection, or an accurate and robust strip chart recorders you can count on Eurotherm to be sure of data security.

 

DAQ Software

 

 

Powerful hardware and software to tailor the recorder to the needs of your application. All our recorders have a vast array of hardware and software options, all of which can be added in the field as and when you need them.

 

EtherNet/IP Client or Server mode

 

Available as an option, the nanodac recorder/controller can be easily integrated with an existing instrument network and act as local data historian. When enabled, EtherNet/IP allows the nanodac to act as either a Client or a Server and provides data recording for up to 30 process parameters (via virtual channels). EtherNet/IP provides two user pages, the first is an overview of all the process parameters (data points) being addressed via the communications. The second is a diagnostics page that can be used during initial setup and commissioning, to test the connection, between the Client and/or Server.

 

 

3 x Isolated DC Outputs (DDD)

 

This release provides support for Isolated DC Outputs in option slots OP1, OP2 and OP3. Please refer to the Installation sheet or User Guide for wiring instructions

 

An optional IP66 rated Wash-down bezel has been made available in this release, making the nanodac suitable for applications in Food & Beverage or CIP/SIP.

 

Crystal clear, colour display

 

The 3.5” TFT display offers incredibly clear visualisation of process parameters with a wide selection of configurable views to best suit the application. Views include: Setpoint Programmer Interface and Programmer Furture Trend; Horizontal and vertical trends; Numeric; Alarm panel, Alarm status, and control loops. The unit also provides user wiring from the front of the product for detailed configuration without the need to connect to a PC.

 

Data Acquisition and Recording

 

The nanodac recording functionality utilizes the secure strategies and UHH format developed by Eurotherm through years of recording expertise. As well as multiple real-time views and historical review on the product, multiple data archiving strategies are provided utilizing the 50MB onboard Flash memory, removable USB and data transfer via FTP to a specified server.

 

The four universal input channels provide high accuracy (suitable for use in Nadcap applications) and 125ms parallel sampling. An additional 30 virtual channels can be utilized to provide maths, counter, slave communications and totalizer functionality with the instrument.

 

PID Control Loops

 

The nanodac instrument can also be upgraded to provide two independent control loops or the advanced cascade loop. The two independent control loop utilize the advanced Eurotherm PID algorithm providing high performance and reliability to your process. The standard dual loop selection also includes one of the best auto tune facilities available along with overshoot inhibition (cutbacks); compensation for power fluctuations using power feedforward; linear, fan, oil and water cooling The all-new advanced cascade loop allows ease of setup and tuning when cascade control is needed. This application block allows the operator to set up individual set point ranges and tune the cascade loop, something unique to the nanodac.

 

Heat Treatment is one of the many processes that often need to vary the set point of the control process over a set period of time; this is achieved by using a set-point program. The nanodac offers an optional Dual Programmer option supporting up to 100 programs locally, each program supporting 25 segments. The nanodac also provides remote access to a further 100 programs that can be easily retrieved via FTP and 100 programs using the USB memory stick.
