Yokogawa’s DXAdvanced R4 has been added to the company’s DAQSTATION family data acquisition and display stations. Standard high capacity memory and a new option for stringent pharmaceutical applications are new features. The Advanced Security option delivers full compliance with FDA regulation 21 CFR Part 11, enabling all DXAdvanced R4 models to be used in any FDA program area that must comply with the regulation. This is complimented by a multi-batch option that allows channels to be grouped and recorded to discrete batch records with independent start and stop control. Standard features include 400 MB of internal flash memory, with an optional USB interface for data retrieval using USB memory devices or configuration with a USB keyboard. All models include custom graphics that allow users to design custom display screens unique for their application. An alarm annunciator display mode using ISA sequencing is also included. the DXAdvanced R4 performs as an intelligent annunciator system with data display and recording functions- replacing common annunciator lamp panels. Two model ranges are offered- DX1000 with 2-12 universal inputs, 5.5” color display; and the larger DX2000 with 4-48 universal inputs and 10.4” color display. Open network connectivity is a hallmark feature of all DXAdvanced models.
