Lantronix launches the xSenso analogue device server for connecting remote analogue sensors

“Industries such as process control, instrumentation, and industrial/building automation will all benefit tremendously from this solution.”

New to the Alpha Micro M2M connectivity portfolio is the xSenso™ analogue device server (ADS) from Lantronix, a compact DIN-rail or wall mount device that enables sensors with analogue outputs to transparently send real-time data to any node on the network or over the Internet.  Ideal for data acquisition and alarm notification in critical environments, xSenso remotely monitors and logs data from a variety of sensors including temperature, humidity, pressure, level, flow, weight, and gas/air quality transmitters.

A low-cost solution, xSenso offers one of the richest feature sets on the market.  Its embedded web server allows for easy monitoring of input readings, as well as charting and logging data using browsers on computers, smart phones and tablets from anywhere in the world.  In applications where analogue sensors and controllers are used, xSenso can be configured to send notifications via e-mail or text message when readings are outside a pre-defined range, thus allowing control engineers to take immediate, corrective action when thresholds are met.

With more than 400 million sensors in use worldwide today, there is high demand for a product like xSenso to address the growing device connectivity needs of millions of sensors that possess analogue voltage and current outputs but are not being monitored.  There is also a need for process control systems with no conventional communication ports to enable the user to add them to networks. xSenso accomplishes these tasks and more.

"xSenso is a feature-rich solution with a low port density, which allows for affordable installation in dispersed locations," said Christos Papakyriacou, Managing Director, Alpha Micro Components.  "Industries such as process control, instrumentation, and industrial/building automation will all benefit tremendously from this solution."

xSenso's key features include two analogue inputs (voltage and/or current); Ethernet port for communication; USB port for configuration; redundant input power; and dynamic web based monitoring, charting and data logging. Also included is email and text message alert notification and 256-bit encryption. It is compatible with leading data acquisition systems including LabVIEW and DASYLab and operates at temperatures ranging from -40° to +85° C.
