FTP Data Station

  • FTP Data Station

FTP and Samba server for DIN rail mount

The FTP Data Station offers the functionality of an FTP and Samba server in a compact package. Use these ways to access the internal memory of the box, or to directly access a connected data medium via USB.


Application example

You have several Web-Thermographs (e.g. Web-Thermograph Pt100/Pt1000 PoE) in your network and want to centrally archive their measurement values. Set each Thermograph for regular sending of the current measurement values via FTP. Specify your FTP Data Station as the FTP server. In this way you can create central measurement data archives in the internal memory of the box or on a connected USB storage medium, which are then available to you at any time for individual processing.

Addition: "Data filling station"

In development is the "data filling station" mode. Here files stored on the box are moved to a connected USB memory stick at the press of a key. Use this function for example to retrieve measurement archives from mobile equipment at regular intervals without the need for a network connection.
If you are interested in this or other modes, simply contact us.
