iDAQ Wi-Fi Dataloggers to feature in the 2012 IET Innovation Awards

Thursday, 2 August 2012  |  Admin

iDAQ CU-04 WiFi Data Acquisition Unit - 4 Channel 4-20mA InputsNow available from Audon Electronics is the new iDAQ range of Wi-Fi enabled dataloggers which are shortly to be featured in the 2012 IET Innovation Awards. The iDAQ range comprises Voltage input, 4-20mA input, PT100 thermometer input and a combination voltage and pulse counter input units in both 4 and 8 channel versions.

The iDAQ range offers high resolution, high accuracy readings and are compatible with a wide range of  analogue and digital sensors. iDAQ units have Wi-Fi connectivity and incorporate a built-in web-server so no PC application software is required. Readings can be viewed in real time in tabular or chart recorder format using any tablet, PC or mobile device via a web browser. Readings can also be logged in the internal 256kb memory for download at a later date. Log rates from once every 5 seconds to every 24 hours can be set.


iDAQ can also be configured to issue email alert messages on alarm; for example, an alert could be issued if a water pipe temperature falls below a critical set-point (i.e. to prevent burst pipes etc). Another use for this alert feature is to monitor window and door contacts; an alert could be issued if they open.

The USB2.0 interface allows the user to write their own applications to control the unit or to take measurements. It also allows them to configure the unit using any third party terminal software

Application areas include:
 
  • Smart metering (electricity, gas and water)
  • Eco-home monitoring (central heating, humidity control, PV output, etc)
  • Environmental monitoring
  • Weather stations (iDAQ can provide live and historical weather trends)
  • Industrial temperature monitoring (supports platinum resistance temperature sensors)

Industrial Ardunio - a real alternative to traditional big-name PLCs

Arduino is a low-cost open-source electronic board system that is capable of controlling just about any DIY hardware project, from robotics to art projects and just about everything in between.

For the process control engineer Arduino based control system may be an interesting and cost-effective alternative to traditional big-name PLC offerings. By adopting the Industrial Arduino PLC route, the Process Control Engineer can reduce control system costs, offer a increase in functionality and improve continuity of supply.

Audon Electronics Ltd can supply such Industrial Arduino PLCs - see here for more information >>

Building Lockdown over a LAN - no new wiring needed

Instantly trigger a lockdown of an office or school facility with a physical panic button, or with the CBW LockDown app from any location in the building or campus using Audon Electronics Ltd products.

Audon Electronics ControlByWeb products are highly versatile and have a variety of input/output options to fit your existing system. There are also many custom control and monitoring features that can be added. For example, once a building lockdown is enabled, you can configure it to only be disabled by a password-protected web control panel.

This architecture takes advantage of the existing IP network and wiring infrastructure in a school or office so no new wiring or expensive installation re-work is required!
