The Remote Display is a richly-featured measurement system that allows for the simultaneous connection of up to four gauges and displays their current measurements on a connected Android tablet. In addition, the Remote Display can connect to up to two external data consumers (desktop computer, laptop, PLC, or any generic serial device) over RS-232 and USB.
The Remote Display has been designed to work with nearly any gauge that outputs data in Digimatic format. In addition, device that output raw quadrature can be used as well.
As a standalone measurement system, the Remote Display provides a very intuitive and user-friendly way to configure and monitor several gauges at once. Connecting the Remote Display to a computer or other serial device makes data collection and statistical process control (SPC) simple and easy. Hardware Overview
