ProfiMessage Data Acquisition System – Network Compatible and Modular
The Delphin ProfiMessage Data Acquisition System is a modular device for data acquisition and automation. A master/slave design makes ProfiMessage suitable for both small and large applications that require the processing of thousands of channels. Master and slave devices can each accommodate two I/O modules. There is a range of I/O modules for users to select an appropriate module(s) for their application. I/O modules are available for any number of channels and sensor types. A network interface enables ProfiMessage devices to be integrated into a TCP network or to be directly connected to a PC workstation or laptop computer. Online measurement data can be transmitted, saved and processed. The data can be stored simultaneously within the ProfiMessage device itself.
ProfiLab is identical in construction and functionality to ProfiMessage – only their housings differ. ProfiMessage devices are designed for rail-mounted installations, and ProfiLab, with its 4 mm plugs, for laboratory applications.
- Data acquisition and automation
- Data transmission via LAN (internet/intranet)
- Data storage capability for independent operation
- Modular and scalable
- Full potential isolation
- Universal inputs and outputs
- Control and automation functions
- Signal conditioning within the device
- Connection to external equipment and PLC control
- Configuration via PC
ProfiMessage’s universal inputs enable the connection of signals of any type including non-isolated signals. This means costly measurement transducers are usually not necessary. Potential isolation between channels as well as differential inputs saves both time and money.
Universal inputs enable any unit of measurement to be acquired (e.g. temperature, pressure flow, vibration etc.). Data then undergoes direct scaling and linearization. Conversions from mA to bar or ml/min take place directly within the ProfiMessage data acquisition system. High measurement precision is achieved through the use of 24-bit resolution Sigma-Delta converters and enables the connection of the smallest of signals (e.g. thermocouples).
- Multi-channel data acquisition
- Monitoring and alarm management
- Test stand automation
- Product testing
- Quality assurance
- Monitoring of buildings
Easy to configure
An optional integrated data memory can permanently store up to 128 million measurement values without PC-support and with edge or level triggering. The ProfiSignal-Software enables online / offline analysis, visualization and operation from any PC workstation as well as PC-controlled process automation and database communications via ODBC/SQL.
The configuration of the Message devices takes place with the PC user-friendly DataService / Configurator software. Configuration data is processed online and permanently within the devices. Configuration data may be amended and adjusted during measurement runs.
Mobile Energy Measurement Case
These cases feature an integrated 3-phase power measuring unit for measuring the electrical power from motors, pumps, drives etc. Energy data from PLC or control systems can also be acquired via field bus interfaces such as PROFIBUS or ModBus. The energy measurement case is configured via LAN and can then function independently thanks to its integrated data memory capable of storing several million measurement values. The case can also be equipped with a UMTS modem to enable wireless operation for remote monitoring applications. Cases are now available.
