Data Acquisition & Telemetry


Universal Data Manager with ­intuitive operation

December 2013 Data Acquisition & Telemetry

Endress+Hauser’s new Universal Data Manager, Ecograph T RSG35, guarantees safe and complete recording and visualisation of all process steps to fulfil the demands on process monitoring and data recording that are becoming more and more complex – every measurement value counts.

Simple operation clear presentation

The Ecograph T RSG35 has a high resolution 15 mm display. This allows the recorded measurement values, which can be indicated in groups up to four with a maximum of eight channels for each group. Flexible measurement value indications, such as curve, waterfall, bargraph or digital value extend the application areas of the RSG35. The operation of the device is based on the intuitive concept of the navigator known from the Advanced Data Manager, Memograph M. To ease the operation of the Ecograph T RSG35, there is an integrated online help and the possibility to connect an external USB keyboard.

New integration possibilities have also been implemented in the standard device. For further calculations, four virtual math channels are available as an option. These can be used for individual calculations that can be entered simply via the formula editor. An easy e-mail function enables notification in case of limit value infringements, errors, alarms and low/high signals of the digital inputs facilitate an enhanced process overview.

Secure and versatile

The Ecograph T RSG35 is the simple solution for tamper-proof recording of data with up to 12 universal analog inputs available. With its additional six digital inputs, other values like quantities, runtimes and switching states of connected devices, can be captured or a time synchronisation can be done.

The recorded measurements are stored in internal memory and optionally on SD card as well. Due to modern interfaces like Ethernet in the standard device and communication protocols, like Modbus TCP/RTU, the device can easily be connected to existing systems.

Up to 30 limit values can be assigned to the channels. Limit value changes are displayed and stored in the device. Furthermore, six internal relays can be switched for the alarm transmission.

For the readout, storage and graphic presentation of the measurement values, the Essential version of the Field Data Manager software is included in the delivery package.

Based on an SQL database data can be read out tamper-proof from the device, either from the internal device memory or from the SD card, using the various interfaces available.

The robustness of the Ecograph T has been improved with a zinc diecast front that increases the IP class to IP65 as well as makes the device in general even more robust.

Worldwide access

The integrated web server enables access to current and historic process data via a conventional web browser. Via the web server, data can be indicated through remote access and control in the same way as on the device, diagnostic information can be recalled. Three user levels with different privileges protect against unauthorised access.
