Data Controller (DC)

  • Overview

    The All In One...

    The DATA CONTROLLER provides the ultimate in remote site data acquisition, data processing, control and interface versatility and flexibility.

    The DATA CONTROLLER is easily configured for use as a stand-alone controller, site to site or site to multi-site data telemetry system, or data concentrator using multiple DATA CONTROLLERs.

    Whether you need a Data Logger, Controller, Data Concentrator, Annunciator, Converter, Data Telemetry Systemn, Protocol Translator or Port Switch the Data Controller is the product to do the job.

    Analog and Discrete IO - RS232 - RS485 - Ethernet - WEB Server ...

  • Simplified Configuration: Select from a list of commonly used built-in functions, use your WEB browser to configure custom functions, or program sophisticated algorithms using AGM's scripting language.  

    I/O in a Small Package: Various product package options offer up to 8 analog and 8 discrete inputs and outputs in a single 3.0" X 1.4" X 2" package. The DATA CONTROLLERs can be mixed and matched to meet the total input and output requirements.

    Multiple Ports: The DATA CONTROLLER provides a number of communication interface options and network configuration possibilities using the available RS485, RS232C and Ethernet ports.

    Hermetically Sealed: Because the DATA CONTROLLER is completely "potted" in silicon rubber, it is impervious to the elements commonly found in harsh environments.

    WEB Page Server:  When connected to an Ethernet based network, viewing field data is as easy as using your WEB browser either by using the existing pages or your custom pages.

    Multiple Protocols:  Adding remote data acquisition and control to existing SCADA systems is easy using built-in communication protocol options.
