Lantronix Launches xSenso Analog Device Server

Aug 8, 2012
 
Irvine, Calif. – July 31, 2012 – Lantronix, Inc., a leading global provider of smart M2M connectivity solutions, today announced the launch of the xSenso™ analog device server (ADS), a compact DIN-rail or wall mount device that enables sensors with analog 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, the xSenso remotely monitors and logs data from a variety of sensors including temperature, humidity, pressure, level, flow, weight, and gas/air quality transmitters.  

“The ability to provide highly accurate, reliable, and real-time temperature, humidity and other related monitoring is absolutely mission-critical for the cold-chain industry,” said Robert Rash, Director of Information Technology for Coldchain Technology Services, a Texas-based provider of environmental assessments, monitoring solutions, consulting, and equipment for food, government and pharmaceutical industry compliance. “Our customers include the Department of Justice, State Department, Department of Veteran's Affairs, private industries, health care organizations, and university research labs to name but a few – and the Lantronix xSenso boasts all the features and ease of use necessary to address their challenges.” 

xSenso, the first in a new family of analog device servers from Lantronix, is a low-cost solution with one of the richest features 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 analog 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 the xSenso to address the growing device connectivity needs of millions of sensors that possess analog voltage and current outputs but are not being monitored.  There is also a need for process control systems with no conventional communication ports to be able to go on network.  The xSenso accomplishes these tasks and more.

“The xSenso is a feature-rich solution with a low port density, which allows for affordable installation in dispersed locations,” said Mak Manesh, vice president of product management for Lantronix.  “Industries such as process control, instrumentation, and industrial/building automation will all benefit tremendously from this solution.”

xSenso key features include:

  • Two analog inputs (voltage and/or current);
  • Ethernet port for communication;
  • USB port for configuration;
  • Redundant input power;
  • Dynamic web based monitoring, charting and data logging;
  • Email and text message alert notification;
  • 256-bit encryption;
  • Compatible with leading data acquisition systems including LabVIEW and DASYLab;
  • Operational temperature of -40° to +85° C;
  • 5-year limited warranty.
