TopMessage – industrial data acquisition and data logging
The TopMessage from Delphin is a very versatile data loggers/data acquisition system that satisfies the needs of a range of different applications. It has a modular design that is flexible and can grow over time as application requirements change. The master unit can be fitted with two I/O modules and can be extended with up to 10 slave devices with two I/O modules each; the system has a capacity to process up to 1,000 channels. Depending on the application the customer can chose from 9 different I/O modules with analog and digital inputs and outputs to fit the specific requirements.
The differential analog inputs are electrically isolated from one another for high accuracy measurements. They offer integrated signal conditioning for thermocouples, RTD sensors, mV, mA and digital signals. Sensor scaling and configuration is done via the DataServiceConfiguration software. The measurements are stored directly in engineering units such as PSI, Gal/min., ft/sec., °F.
TopMessage systems use an Ethernet interface making it very easy to integrate them within an existing company network and to allow data access from various PCs. The TopMessage can be easily integrated to other third parties devices via a variety of available interfaces including 2 serial ports with RS232, 422, 485, Modbus RTU and TCP (Master & Salve), Profibus-DP Slave, OPC Client & Server, OCX or LabView driver. The serial ports can be individually configured to process any serial protocol.
The power of the TopMessage is that all settings are configured via menus and that no programming is required. It provides 100 different internal calculation channels which can be linked to create complex mathematical and logical functions. Integrated alarm management functions provide email or SMS notification.
ProfiSignal software for analysis and evaluation
The TopMessage data logger is supplied with the ProfiSignal software suite. This is a complete SCADA system for industrial applications, monitoring, quality assurance, test bench
automation, lifecycle testing, vibration monitoring and analysis. The software enables users to create their own automated applications and test sequences by picking commands from a list box. The software also has configurable parameter screens to store and load recipe files for various tests. ProfiSignal enables access to historical data at speeds and provides a smooth
transition between online and offline evaluation. For evaluation purposes, Yt, Yx, orbit, FFT and logic analysis diagrams are provided. With the reporting module, reports with trends, graphs and tables can be created for quality assurance and R&D requirements. ProfiSignal Klicks provides an extremely effective solution for the visualisation and user-friendly management of testing procedures. A ModuleView allows for different parts of a process to be broken down and graphically structured (e.g. as sequence, parallel and event blocks). These can then be linked together as procedures or process chains.
