Yokogawa Corp. recently released DAQStation, which provides digital data acquisition, and functions as either a file transfer protocol (FTP) server or client through a built-in Ethernet port.
By acting as an FTP server, DAQStation allows users to access the data acquisition device, retrieve data, view data in real-time, or pull stored data off the device. Using this same method, data can also be transferred from the data acquisition device to a server. Since DAQStation also supports multiple connections through the Ethernet port, users can view data as it is being downloaded to a PC via FTP. DAQStation can also be programmed to automatically send copies of data to a back-up tape drive or alternate server.
