Banner's new DXM700 wireless controllers offer many of the valuable benefits of existing DXM controllers but also feature faster processing speed, more memory, and a smaller 70 mm width that takes up less space on a DIN rail. I/O ports are included for the four on-board discrete outputs, which provides added versatility for use in many IIoT applications.
With 3 times faster processing speed and 8 times more memory than previous models of the DXM controller, the new DXM700 provides expanded ScriptBasic programming capabilities and faster script processing that allows for more complex solutions to solve even more applications in the factory.
DXM wireless controllers are designed to facilitate Ethernet connectivity as well as enable Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications. As smart factories become more prevalent, IIoT technologies are in high demand to connect manufacturing assets to the internet.
The DXM700 can be used for various IIoT applications such as remote monitoring, predictive maintenance, or process optimization. The DXM700 is compatible with Banner sensors and Connected Data Solutions software to create complete end-to-end IIoT solutions.
The DXM700 wireless controller takes up less space on a DIN rail due to its compact 70 mm width. Despite the smaller footprint, the DXM700 still includes most of the features and the same reliable performance as the rest of the DXM series.
The DXM700 also offers advanced features that offer flexibility in communicating, logging, and using the data from the factory floor. For example, the DXM700 includes communication protocols like Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, and EtherNet/IP to enable communication between PLCs, HMIs, and other local hosts. Alerts, alarms, or data log files can be sent via secure email so that operators do not miss important notifications.
A removable SD card can be used for on-board data logging and the easy-to-follow interactive programmable user interface includes an LCD screen and LED indicators. A cellular modem (sold separately) provides cellular internet connectivity and four sourcing outputs are available on the DXM700 for local triggers.
The DXM700 can be used in numerous factory automation and IIoT applications including:
