Secure acquisition for business critical data

  • Electronic logging of process values
  • Designed for FDA 21CFR Part 11 electronic records
  • FTP push to up to three servers
  • Time synchronisation across the network

A unique feature of the T2550 PAC is secure redundant data recording. This allows data, alarm information and messages to be recorded at the point of measurement, with all data being time stamped as it is recorded, satisfying regulations such as the FDA 21CFR Part 11.

Secure data recording is always important, and in many processes is vital to the end product. Using the redundant processor and power supply capabilities of the T2750 PAC not only records data but can mirror it into a secondary processor. This ensures that as long as the process is running, secure data is maintained and is available over the communications network.

If communications are lost for any reason the data is still available for forwarding when communication is restored ensuring that any holes in the supervisory visualisation software are closed to provide a complete picture of the process.

With up to several months of data stored in the internal flash memory, data can be pushed over FTP to  either primary, secondary or tertiary servers – effectively providing a secure infinite archiving capacity.

Data can also be pulled into multiple sources where it is needed for batch, porcess and analysis reporting, and forms the primary source of data archive for the FDA or similar.

When the T2550 is used with the Eurotherm DCS solution, any loss in communication causing gaps in data at the top end system, will automatically be filled in from the secure files at the instrument when communication is restored.

Software such as “Eurotherm Review” can acquire the data for back up and inclusion in a database, viewing , printing or for report preraration and publication, with packages such as “Dream Report™” from Eurotherm.

Distributed and Integral solutions

Whether a standalone or a plant wide solution, the T2550 PAC offers high performance with flexibility of scale, distribution and integration to suit the requirement.  It provides peer to peer communications and units can be distributed throughout the plant with simple configuration from a single database.  A wider, integrated solution can be provided using Modbus RTU, TCP or Profibus communication to other products and systems.
