Lantronix Debuts xSenso Controller for Process Control and Automation

Lantronix xSenso Controller

Lantronix introduced the xSenso Controller. The new analog and relay outputs provide the ability to take action by instantly controlling industrial processes and equipment based on the sensor readings and predefined thresholds to solve real-time problems. It is ideal for industrial automation, process control, manufacturing, chemicals, oil and gas industries. The xSenso analog sensor is available now.

The Lantronix xSenso Controller is a compact, DIN-rail or wall mount solution that enables analog sensors (voltage or current) to easily and transparently send real-time data to any node on the Internet or to a cloud-based application. The new analog device server can take action when a condition is met (e.g., temperature threshold, pressure level, etc.), triggering its internal relays or outputting voltage or current to control an event in real time. In an existing control system, the xSenso can also be placed in between the sensor and the controller to mirror the analog data from its input to its output, while simultaneously presenting the data through a web browser to computers or mobile devices.
