USA: Lantronix Inc. announced the launch of the Lantronix xSenso Controller -- the newest member of its xSenso analog sensor networking family, designed specifically for use in rugged and harsh environments including industrial automation, process control, manufacturing, chemicals, oil and gas industries, and many more.
The new analog and relay outputs provide the ability to take action by instantly controlling industrial processes and equipment based on the sensor readings and predefined thresholds to solve real-time problems. The xSenso Controller is available now for purchase at www.Lantronix.com, or through the company's global network of distribution partners.
"Lantronix has done an outstanding job positioning the xSenso Controller as a vital solution for a variety of industrial automation challenges," said Josh Varghese, Technology Lead for Industrial Networking Solutions -- one of the nation's largest dedicated industrial networking distributors.
"There is a tremendous need for remote monitoring and data logging of critical events in process control and automation applications where xSenso Controller can be used -- especially where users can leverage web browsers to monitor and chart the data on mobile devices including tablets and smartphones from anywhere in the world."
The Lantronix xSenso product family comprises feature-rich, low cost solutions for remote sensor monitoring and process control. The new xSenso Controller is a compact, DIN-rail or wall mount solution that enables analog sensors (voltage or current) to easily and transparently send real-time data to any node on the Internet or to a cloud-based application.
In addition to its already robust feature set, the new xSenso can take action when a condition is met (e.g., temperature threshold, pressure level, etc.), triggering its internal relays or outputting voltage or current to control an event in real time. In an existing control system, the xSenso can also be placed in between the sensor and the controller to mirror the analog data from its input to its output, while simultaneously presenting the data through a web browser to computers or mobile devices.
The product family is compatible with some of the most popular off-the-shelf data acquisition systems such as LabVIEW and DASYLab, and its compact and efficient design enables it to be affordably installed in dispersed or remote locations.
