ConsoliDator+ USB Data Logger

Webinar Description:

The PD9000 ConsoliDator+ is now available with the New Data Logger Feature. This feature allows for logging data to an external USB flash drive. The Data Logger Feature allows you to create logs that contain the same type of process data or a mix of just about anything you might want to log.

In this webinar, Joe Ryan, VP of Sales and Marketing, will discuss the key features of the ConsoliDator+ Data Logger Feature. You will learn how the Data Logger Feature gives you the ability to create multiple logs with each log containing up to 12 process variables: inputs, outputs, timers, alarm status, relay status, or a combination of parameters. Learn how to set up data logs and add items to be logged. You will also learn how logs can be controlled with the log start / stop function keys, log enable switch, log trigger, and more.

The ConsoliDator+ Add-On features that are ordered with the ConsoliDator+ will be activated at the factory. Add-On features can be ordered for existing ConsoliDator+ units with a firmware version of 2.2 or greater, at any time. The user will receive a PDK9000-D1 Key they can enter into the ConsoliDator+ to unlock the Add-On feature.

Takeaways:

  • Learn the basics of the ConsoliDator+ Multivariable Controller New Data Logger Feature.
  • Learn how to create multiple data logs, add items to be logged and configure settings to log data to a USB flash drive.
  • Learn how to control data logs with the log start / stop function keys, log enable switch, log trigger, and more.

Webinar Description:

Redundancy in control systems is crucial to ensure a plant is not completely vulnerable to cyber-attacks. For instance, if a control system is compromised, then a local 4-20 mA indicator can serve as a backup local monitoring, control and alarming system.

According to the Associated Press, on February 5th, 2021, a hacker remotely accessed the control system at a water treatment plant in Florida and altered chemical levels. The hacker attempted to increase the amount of lye used to treat the water to dangerous levels. Even though the intrusion was quickly caught and stopped by the operator on site, the incident exposes how vulnerable both industrial and municipal plants can be to cyber-attacks.

Officials said the public was never in danger and plant safeguards would have detected the chemical alteration before water reached consumers. This highlights the importance of redundancy in industrial control systems and how it can help avert a catastrophe.

In this webinar, Joe Ryan, VP of Sales and Marketing, will discuss fail-safe solutions against cyber attacks, including how a local 4-20 mA indictor can serve as a backup local monitoring, control, and alarming system in case of a compromised control system.

Takeaways:

  • Understand the threats cyber attacks pose on industrial and municipal plants.
  • Learn how industrial control systems can benefit from redundant local display, control, and alarming.
  • Discover how Precision Digital can provide fail-safe solutions against cyber attacks using local displays.

Webinar Description:

The ConsoliDator+ multivariable controller is now available with an Enhanced Modbus Features Package that among other things, allows you to display up to 160 Modbus registers on a full-color QVGA screen.

These features include:

  1. Client: In Client (or Master) mode, read multiple variables from your sensors and maximize their potential.
  2. Snooper: With packet sniffer functionality (Snooper), listen and read PVs on RS-485 bus
  3. Spoofer: Assign multiple addresses and customized register numbers

Never heard of a Modbus Spoofer? Attend the webinar to learn how this feature can help you replace existing Modbus servers without changing the Client configuration.

In this webinar, Joe Ryan, VP of Sales and Marketing, will discuss how the Enhanced Modbus Features Package on the ConsoliDator+ allows anyone to easily take advantage of the powerful Modbus features present in their sensors, transmitters, and PLCs, display this Modbus and analog data on an easy-to-read full-color display, and eliminate the need to write complicated code or custom software.

Here is what you will learn:

  1. How to use the ConsoliDator+ to see up to 160 Modbus process variables, making the most of your Modbus transmitters and sensors.
  2. How using the Client (Master) mode will allow you to request process variables from server devices, scale the input variables, and create alarms, math channels, and other triggers from that information.
  3. How the Snooper mode listens and reads the process variables being transmitted on the RS-485 bus without causing any disruptions to the network or requiring you to reprogram existing devices.
  4. How you can replace existing Modbus servers without requiring changes to the Client configuration using the Spoofer mode.

The Enhanced Modbus Features Package can be “unlocked” on any ConsoliDator+ purchased after February 15, 2021 by purchasing the PDK9000-M1 Key for $500 and entering the Key value into the ConsoliDator+.

Also in this webinar, Joe will present a short overview of the ConsoliDator+ and configuration software and show you a live demonstration of the PDD9000 ConsoliDator+ Demo unit.

Takeaways:

  • Learn how the ConsoliDator+ Modbus features allow anyone to easily take advantage of the powerful Modbus features present in their sensors, transmitters, and PLCs, display this Modbus and analog data on an easy-to-read full-color display, and eliminate the need to write complicated code or custom software.
  • Learn the basics of the ConsoliDator+ Multivariable Controller.
  • Review the Modbus capabilities in the new Enhanced Modbus Features Package, including Client (Master) Features.
  • See how EASY it is to program and utilize these new Client, Server, Snooper, and Spoofer Features.
  • Watch a live demonstration with the PDD9000 ConsoliDator+ demo unit.

Webinar Description:

The PD420/421 set point generators and the PD460/461 valve positioners provide a convenient way to generate a 4-20 mA signal that can be used to control another device. The PD420/421 set point generators can be programmed to display 0-100%, 4-20 mA or 3-21 mA and output either 4-20 mA or 3-21 mA. The PD4604/61 valve positioners are programmed to display a value of 0-100% relating to the 4-20 mA output. A built-in dial is provided to vary the displayed / output value. Both feature a backlight and are available in panel mount or NEMA 4X versions.

In this webinar, Joe Ryan, VP of Sales and Marketing, will present a live demonstration of the PD460 hooked up to a valve actuator and explain how it works. He will discuss the key features and differences between the panel mount and NEMA 4X versions of these devices and show other enclosure options.

Takeaways:

  • Easy, Low-cost way to generate a 4-20 mA signal for controlling another device.
  • See a live demonstration of how the PD460 valve positioner works.
