World-class compact design and high performance for production maintenance and the development of EV batteries and other components.
Yokogawa Electric Corporation has developed the OpreX™ Multi-Sensing Remote I/O as an addition to its OpreX Components lineup. OpreX Multi-Sensing Remote I/O devices accurately obtain data from multiple sensors, convert it to a digital format, and transfer it to a higher-level system for monitoring. The first model is the VZ20X Analog Sensing Unit, which is being released for sale on August 31 in 64 countries and regions in the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. The smallest-in-class VZ20X is a high-speed, high-precision, and highly noise-resistant device that is capable of simultaneously collecting data from analog sensors on up to 120 channels. With a height and width less than that of a typical business card and weighing less than 200g, it is suitable for installation wherever space is at a premium, including on production equipment.
Leveraging such characteristics and the capabilities of Yokogawa's AI technology, users of the VZ20X will be able, for example, to detect when an abnormality is likely to occur on a production line so that condition-based maintenance (CBM) can be performed at a suitable time. The VZ20X is also able to accurately collect data needed for the development of components such as the on-board batteries used in electric vehicles (EVs), plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHVs), and fuel cell vehicles (FCVs).
