Product of the Month: The Lantronix® xSenso™ Controller
- Created: Wednesday, 31 July 2013
Lantronix, Irvine, CA, has introduced the Lantronix® xSenso™ Controller with analog and relay outputs that control industrial processes and equipment based on the sensor readings and predefined thresholds. The controller is a compact, DIN-rail or wall-mount solution that enables analog sensors (voltage or current) to transparently send real-time data to any node on the Internet or to a cloud-based application. It 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 controller 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. It is compatible with data acquisition systems such as LabVIEW™ and DASYLab™, and can be installed in dispersed or remote locations.
