Eurotherm has launched a new data acquisition product that allows users to view and archive data remotely from different operator displays around the plant. The 6000XIO Distributed Graphic Recorder has a wide range of process uses including water and wastewater treatment monitoring. Processes can be viewed at numerous locations with similar or custom displays. For example, one area may require a large (12.1") 6180XIO display, while the other may be a (5.5") 6100XIO. The series’ panel depth is very narrow and allows the IO to be placed remotely, while data is stored in the display for security. Far more than just a simple operator display without intelligence, each device has an intuitive, touch screen display to enable users to clearly view process data in varying formats.
