Data Acquisition System - Delphin ProfiMessage

The Delphin ProfiMessage D Data Acquisition System is the cutting-edge, Industry 4.0 modular data acquisition, monitoring and control arrangement. A modular master/slave design makes ProfiMessage D appropriate for both small and large applications that necessitate the processing of up to hundreds of channels. The ProfiMessage D includes a new OPC UA software interface which permits open data exchange to enable amalgamation with other equipment and systems. It also boasts many other improvements over preceding versions of ProfiMessage systems:

  • Built-in display for monitoring and network configuration
  • Two PROFIBUS interfaces (single or redundant)
  • Optional WLAN interface
  • Optional PROFINET interface

The master and slave devices can house two I/O modules each. A single master can regulate up to 20 slaves allowing up to 660 I/O channels in a sole system. A choice of analog and digital I/O modules permit the system to meet the necessities of all categories of industrial DAQ applications.

A network interface allows ProfiMessage devices to be unified with a TCP network or directly linked to a PC workstation or laptop computer. Online measurement data can be communicated, saved and administered and data stored within the ProfiMessage D device itself at the same time.

The connection of signals of any type - including non-isolated signals – are possible with ProfiMessage D’s universal inputs, meaning expensive measurement transducers are unnecessary. Potential isolation between channels and differential inputs saves both time and money.

Universal inputs allow any unit of measurement to be obtained (e.g. temperature, pressure flow, vibration etc.) before undergoing direct scaling and linearization. Conversions from mA to bar or ml/min occur within the ProfiMessage D data acquisition system. High accuracy is accomplished via the use of 24-bit resolution Sigma-Delta converters and allows the assembly of the smallest of signals (e.g. thermocouples).

Applications include: Multi-channel data acquisition, Monitoring and alarm management, Test stand automation, Product testing and quality assurance, Monitoring of buildings

The formation of the ProfiMessage D is achieved with a PC with the foolproof DataService Configurator software. Configuration data is processed online and permanently within the devices, with the option of integrated data memory of up to 32 GB to locally store billions of assessment values.

The ProfiMessage D features a smart local controller allowing it to functions as a stand-alone device. This offers many functions such as limits/alarms, calculations, logic and other purposes via software channels, allowing the system to be arranged to meet the requirements of several different kinds of applications without the need to acquire complicated programming language.

An optional Windows based ProfiSignal software package is available in three versions, offering a full range of competences from visualization and data archiving to fully automated test systems with report generation. Elective modules deliver extra abilities such as connecting to SQL databases, vibration analysis or FDA CFR21 Part 11 compliance. The new ProfiSignal Web is a client/server application that enables platform-independent access remotely to assessment projects from any standard web browser.
