Lantronix Launches xSenso Analog Device Server

Irvine, Calif. – July 31, 2012 – Lantronix, Inc. (Nasdaq: LTRX), a leading global provider of smart M2M connectivity solutions, today announced the launch of the xSenso™, a compact DIN-rail or wall mount analog device server (ADS) that enables sensors with analog outputs to transparently send real-time data to any node on the network or over the Internet.  Ideal for data acquisition and alarm notification in critical environments, the xSenso remotely monitors and logs data from a variety of sensors including temperature, humidity, pressure, level, flow, weight, and gas/air quality transmitters.  The product is available now for purchase at www.Lantronix.com or through the company’s global network of distribution partners.

“The ability to provide highly accurate, reliable, and real-time temperature, humidity and other related monitoring is absolutely mission-critical for the cold-chain industry,” said Wayne D. Williams, president for Coldchain Technology Services, a Texas-based provider of environmental assessments, monitoring solutions, consulting, and equipment for food, government and pharmaceutical industry compliance.  “Our customers include the CDC, DoD, Department of Justice, State Department, Department of Veterans Affairs, private industries, health care organizations, and university research labs to name but a few – and the Lantronix xSenso boasts all the features and ease of use necessary to address their challenges.”

xSenso is the first analog I/O product from Lantronix. It is a low-cost solution with one of the richest features sets on the market.  Its embedded Web server allows for easy monitoring of input and output readings, as well as charting or logging data using browsers on computers, smart phones and tablets from anywhere in the world.  In applications where analog sensors and controllers are used, xSenso can be configured to send notifications via email or text message when readings are outside a pre-defined range, thus allowing control engineers to take immediate, corrective action when thresholds are met.

With the overall global sensor market exceeding $62.8 billion in 2011, and projected to surpass $91.5 billion by 2016, there is high demand for a product like the xSenso to address the growing device connectivity needs of millions of sensors that possess analog voltage and current outputs but are not being monitored.  There is also a need for process control systems with no conventional communication ports to be able to go on network.  The xSenso accomplishes these tasks and more.

“The xSenso is a feature-rich solution with a low port density, which allows for affordable installation in dispersed locations,” said Mak Manesh, vice president of product management for Lantronix. “Industries such as process control, instrumentation, and industrial/building automation will all benefit tremendously from this solution.”

xSenso key features include:

  • Two analog inputs;
  • Ethernet port for communication;
  • USB port for configuration;
  • Dynamic web based monitoring, charting and data logging;
  • Email and text message alert notification;
  • 256-bit encryption;
  • Operational temperature of -40° to +85° C;
  • 5-year limited warranty. 

Pricing and Availability

xSenso MSRP is $235.00, and is available for purchase now at Lantronix.com, as well as through the company’s global network of distribution partners.  For more information on xSenso, or for sales inquiries, please contact us at sales@lantronix.com

Transforming 400V Power for SELV Systems

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Vicor

Converting from distribution-friendly voltages like 400V down to locally-useful voltages can be a tough engineering challenge. In SELV systems, many teams turn to BCM converter modules because of their efficiency, form factor, and ease of design-in. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ian Masza of Vicor about transforming 400V into power for SELV systems.
